The skateboard that Skip uses in the movie is made by Stereo Skateboards, the company that actor Jason Lee co-founded in 1992 and still co-owns. The yellow circular graphic logo of Stereo Skateboards is visible on the deck of the board at two points in the film, outside of Lily's café when the coach of diners arrives, and at Skip's HQ when he meets with Dr Mumford. The word "Stereo" can also be briefly seen on the board when Skip sets it down on the table before showing the Doc his laboratory. See more »

I noticed Something. For some reason, probably because I was too stoned to talk, everywhere I went people would talk to me. Tell me everything. Their problems, their inner most thoughts. Sometimes they needed advice, but most of the people just wanted someone to listen.

Got the chance to see a sneak preview of Mumford and mainly went to see it for Chasing Amy's Jason Lee (as I'm that big of a Kevin Smith fan) and was rather caught off-guard by how good it was. Starting out, the movie is slightly oddly paced and just throws you into the plot with little explanation as to what's up. The script unfolds expertly and does a great job of drawing you into the storyline and the very believable characters. It's extremely funny in a low-key way with most of the humor coming as a quick comment delivered dead-pan. It's the sort of flick where all of the characters are great because they're so quirky that they are funny in and of themselves. The overall message of the movie is also a good one. Definitely reccomended viewing.
By the way, you get to see Jason Lee skate a bit. Cool beans.
