Kevin Smith's commitment to Jersey Girl has been so demanding that he couldn't finish two Marvel comic books that he began. The first being "Daredevil: The Target", which didn't get past issue one. The second, being "Spider-Man and the Black Cat", which he promoted on an episode of the Jay Leno show but only got to issue three, leaving the readers in suspense as to the Black Cat's fate at the edge of issue three's cliffhanger ending.

The opening production company title features a CGI rended Jay and Silent Bob, recurring characters from the five previous ViewAskew films. Jersey Girl was the first ViewAskew movie to use the new title. See more »
I'm a 53 year old Kevin Smith fan. I became a fan not because of his movies, (although, I do admire "Chasing Amy") but, after watching "An Evening With Kevin Smith" I found him to be a clever, bright, and funny man who also happens to be a hell of a story teller... with or without all of the profanity.
"Jersey Girl" is disappointing because it's merely another second-rate, run of the mill *light* 'romantic comedy' (light on romance and light on comedy). I expected to find some new insights (perhaps slightly twisted), presented with the charm and humour he is capable of bringing to a story. However, Mr. Smith missed the mark with this one. I suspect he'll do better next time.
