Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
Ollie Trinkie is a publicist, who has a great girlfriend, Gertrude, whom he marries and they are expecting a baby but while he is looking forward to being a father, he doesn't lighten his workload. Gertrude gives birth but dies in the process. Ollie doesn't live up to his responsibilities as a father. Eventually the strain and pressure of losing his wife and being a father gets to him and he has breakdown, which leads to his termination. So with nothing much to do he tries to be good father to his daughter, Gertie. He also meets a young woman name Maya, who likes him but he is still not over his wife. Written by
The film's DVD release was promoted with a tongue-in-cheek commercial in which Kevin Smith begs people to buy his DVD so that he has enough money to keep his sexy wife happy. See more »
Ollie cautions Gertie to flush the toilet, but never mentions that she should wash her hands after using it. For a protective father like he is, this makes little sense. See more »
Everyone, please take your seats. You heard the bell. You know what it means. Last week, the assignment was to write an essay about your family. Who they...
And what they...

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 can't believe this movie belongs to the same director which made Clerks or Chasing Amy! What ever happened to Kevin Smith, man? He used to be sarcastic, ironic, acid... he used to be a nice comedy-maker, he used to make jokes out of girls which sucked 37 penises... But now, what do we have now? We have a romantic-comedy, with a widow man (Ben Affleck ... arrghhhh!!!) who has to raise her little girl alone. Mr Smith has made a comedy for all the family (for that kind of people he used to ridicule in his early works). Maybe he's grown up and became an adult man! Well, we'll always have Woody Allen. Bye bye Kevin! Thanks for Clerks.
