Well.....I liked the ending.
16 February 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

A good thing about this whole thing is that Kevin Smith wasn't trying to be someone he's not with this. He wasn't trying to make a masterpiece. (please God tell me he didn't try!) The film is a mockumentary about making a documentary. How did he come up with that? Anyway the film (if you can call it that) was alright and I did enjoy the soundtrack and especially the whole thing about Kevin Smith and that other guy (who, even though we never saw his face, had the most uncanny resemblance to Ben Affleck) never showing their faces and always being out of frame and the whole them being in the shadow talking to the camera thing. If you're watching this to see Kevin Smith humor then you'll be a bit disappointed. There was some of it in the ending though and that was a good thing I guess.

For very hardcore Kevin Smith fans only!
