Eddie Murphy portrays real-life legend Rudy Ray Moore, a comedy and rap pioneer who proved naysayers wrong when his hilarious, obscene, kung-fu fighting alter ego, Dolemite, became a 1970s Blaxploitation phenomenon.
Holden and Banky are comic book artists. Everything's going good for them until they meet Alyssa, also a comic book artist. Holden falls for her, but his hopes are crushed when he finds out she's a lesbian.
Joey Lauren Adams,
This is the first collaboration between Kevin Smith and Ben Affleck since Clerks II (2006). They had a falling out which lasted almost a decade, with Smith confessing that he "has a big mouth and told too many candid stories that sometimes weren't his to tell". In early 2019, Affleck was interviewed for Triple Frontier (2019) where he indicated that he had not been contacted for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, but would be available. Smith subsequently reached out to Affleck, and stated that their reunion was "emotional" and "brought back a massive missing piece of my heart". He wrote Affleck's part (a reprise of his Holden McNeill role from Chasing Amy (1997)) into the movie one week before the end of production, with the scene shot on the very last day. Smith called the scene "one of the best bits of cinema I've ever been involved with: it's absolutely magical and life-affirming and all the things I really care about now, post-heart attack."

Just when you thought Jay and Silent Bob where done...Reboot!
Kevin Smith milks everything he has out of his View Askew Universe, but this Milk don't spoil. I went into this hoping that it would be good and as it turns out it was great.
Jay and his hederal life mate Silent bob may have gotten older but they still feel young and relevant(ironically in their irrelevance which adds to the humor). It's been a while snice we seen these dudes (18 years to be exact), but it felt like they never left. They seem even more hip now because you know fart jokes never go out of style (excuse my language IMDB does not allow me to tell you what type of jokes this movie is really filled with).
Ironically Kevin Smith pokes fun at reboots by making the best reboot ever with Jay and Silent Bob leaving their home town of Leonardo, NJ (perhaps only for the third time), they set out on a new quest to stop the reboot of Blunt man and Chronic from happening, along the way the View Askew universe is revisited from Clerks to Jay and Silent Bob strikes back, he had this cinematic universe down before Kevin Smith's beloved Marvel movies were even close to being a thing. The Reboot also consisted of a large amount of celebrity cameos slightly more impressive than the stuff on Strikes Back (but still showing that Smith is an indi filmmaker).
Smith's got one thing going for him, he does know how to tell a story. He knows how to make long stretches of dialog never boring. This movie's never boring its filled with funny moment after moment. I was not expecting to like this but man did I love this.
