Trivia

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 (2019), 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."

Fun look back at the history of career of Kevin and Jay
16 October 2019 | by bkimballSee all my reviews

I thought this movie was fun, emotional and packed with familiar faces. Saying it was a rehash of Kevin Smith movies was sorta the whole point of this movie. It was fan service and being a fan, I thought it was great!!! I've been waiting for Kevin to make this movie for a long time since I wasn't a huge fan of Tusk or Yoga Hosers (but I did like Jersey Girl!). This is a true View Askew piece of cinema IMHO!
