At his performance at Cornell, Smith began by stating that he would stay longer than anyone else in the auditorium, because he didn't have class the next day. In fact, he kept going for 4-5 hours, only stopping when his wife forced him to. See more »
During the Kent State questionnaire we see students sitting on the floor between the aisles due to over selling the amount of ticketed seats. This is a serious violation of the fire code and a safety hazard, therefore the fire Marshall could have shut down the event, the event organizers and the university officials should be aware of this.

[describing Tim Burton reaction]
He said "Anybody who knows me knows I would never read a comic book." Which to me, explains Batman. "And I certainly would never read anything written by Kevin Smith." Whoa! The... the claws came out. The... the fucking scissorhands came out!

This film is like a thinking man's concert film. A compilation of college lectures given by cult-favorite filmmaker Kevin Smith, it ranges in topics from religion to homosexuality, to Kevin's films to the cadre of odd young men who want to give him oral sex. It may sound boring at first, but that's because most people have never heard Kevin Smith talk. Why he gave himself the role of Silent Bob I will never know, because listening to this man speak is quite a treat. He has a natural charm and ease about him, and he fields questions from the students with a quick wit and often elaborates in a riveting and entertaining fashion. Some of my favorite moments include the prolonged story of the new SUPERMAN movie and his battle with Tim Burton, and the story of Kevin's first sexual encounter with his wife. At four hours, the film is a bit lengthy, so it may be misconstrued as strictly fan-only. It's not. I think that the film holds an appeal for anyone who likes to be entertained. If you can get a hold of a copy, check it out. It's worth the time.
