What happened Kevin? How did you go from Jay and Silent Bob to this?
Jersey Girl is Smith's weakest film to date. Over sentimental, a poor script and truly horrific performances are all factors that mar this film and bring it down to new depths that Smith has never seen. Some of the jokes are just so awful I can't actually comprehend what was going on in Smith's mind when he wrote them - like Affleck and Tyler being caught having sex by a family member? What on earth? Is Smith really so creatively poor that he has to take one of the biggest clichés in motion picture history and insert it into a pivotal moment in what is meant to be a different style of film? After seeing this whole film you will see that the answer is yes! What a waste of time and effort!
