Trivia

This is one of the two times Kevin Smith has appeared as Silent Bob in a film that's not his. The other was in Scream 3. There have been many debates. Does Kevin Smith really play Silent Bob despite Jason Mewes referring to him as 'John'. Most people believe Smith does play Silent Bob since he is in the same costume as 'Mallrats' See more »

A Must-See For All View Askew Fans
28 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

Judged on it's own merits, it's a decent movie. When considered as part of the View Askew universe, it is a whole lot of fun. The basic plot is quite clever, Jason Lee's performance is excellent, and its a lot of fun to see most of the Mallrats cast reunited for this film. Its a very talky movie, but is never boring.

Of course, this film has it's share of problems, too. Poor sound, the fact that large sections of the movie seem to be missing ( it is somewhat disjointed and has a running time of less than a hour), plus an ending that I didn't particularly like.

If you're not a fan of View Askew, then there is no real reason to watch this movie. If you are a fan, then by all means buy the DVD. After one initial viewing, be sure to watch it again with the cast commentary.

I gave this movie 7 stars.
