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 »
The most surprising thing about "Jersey Girl" is that Kevin Smith chose to tell this story is such an absolutely clichéd, conventional style.
This is the same guy who made "Clerks" and "Chasing Amy?" Let's see, we get the slow clap scene, the race against time and the fast-paced big city life vs. the idyll of a small town. And, lest we forget, the learning-the-real-meaning-of-life-from-a-stranger moment.
George Carlin actually delivers a rather low key and amusing performance. He's probably the best thing in this film. Liv Tyler is wasted and Ben Affleck - I kept thinking what someone with real talent would do with such a role. Affleck's too busy being Affleck; you're always keenly aware you're watching Ben Affleck on screen.
There are a few moments that hint of Smith's abilities - the diner scene between Affleck and Tyler is written well. Smith has always been a better writer than director and, in this scene, the writing's sharp, the characters are fun and there's a nice energy to the whole sequence. But the rest of the film is just one predictable moment piled atop another.
There are no surprises here. A huge disappointment from Mr. Smith. I expected better. Much better.
