Ok this is my own fault for renting it but, I don't think I am going to be able to finish watching it. Now I know more than one have you seen this masterpiece. Is there any reason I should finish watching it.

No. Watched it at a friends house. I'll say nothing else but, NO.

Well, you could brag about having seen it to your friends...Oh...No wait, almost forgot. No, you can't.[:D] Juggernaut

If you have not seen all of his movies then it will suck. I liked it!! It's not as good a Clerks but there was a lot of jokes made in there that pertained to his other movies. 1. Clerks 2. Mall rats 3. Chasing Amy 4. Dogma 5. Jay and silent Bob strike back

Yeah, I have to agree with this one: You need to be a Kevin Smith fan to really enjoy it, because its basically a(n) homage to all of his other movies. Other than that, it's got some funny moments, but nothing to write home about. If drugs, foul language, overt blasphemy, gutter humor, sex jokes, even more sex jokes, astonishingly phrased sexual references, REALLY overt blasphemy, Matt Damon, and Ben Afflec offend you, you probably not only should not finish watching the movie, but burn the video/DVD. On the other hand, if you want what amounts to Seinfeld with four letter words and far more entertaining actors, see Clerks--it's worth it. Then you can wade through the rest of his movies (all of which are slightly intertwined) and watch J&SBSB again--it'll make more sense. Note: If you think organized religion is a great thing (especially if you're a roman catholic) avoid Dogma. :)

If you didnt like Clerks, Mall Rats, Chasing Amy, and Dogma you wont like this one. I liked them all.

Well seeing that I haven't seen any of the above, I have moved on to American Pie 2.

All, Don't cheat yourself out of some of the funniest stuff ever filmed. Kevin Smith's movies are VERY funny; it's too bad that you saw "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" first. Like the other guys said, you really, really have to watch them in order to get the full impact (especially from JSBSB). Some people balk at "Dogma." If you're Catholic, you may not like it, or, like me, you'll think it's hilarious. Enjoy!

If you weren't laughing hard enough you weren't quite [b]high[/b] enough. [8P]

Clerks was awful and each of his movies was worse than its predecessor.

I loved it, and I have only seen "Dogma" & "Clerks", especially teh Scooby Doo scene.

Mark Hammill has the funniest damn cameo near the end. I guess all those years of doing the joker's voice on the Batman cartoon had an effect on him.... [:)]

I'd heard that as well, but this is apparently untrue. Supposedly there is a film in production called "Clerks 2: Sell Out" in which Dante and Randall decide to make an ultra-cheap black and white film about their experiences at the Quick-Stop. Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith are credited as J&SB. And yeah, the Scooby Doo scene was killer, and the Mark Hamil cameo was downright hysterical.

it's decent way better than clerks, not as funny as dogma almost done with chasing amy, it's probably about as funny as jay and silent bob clerks is overrated. not bad, but not as hilarious as it is made out to be

1GUNRUNNER said "Well seeing that I haven't seen any of the above, I have moved on to American Pie 2." The first American Pie is better overall I think but AP2 has much more Alison Hannigan (this one time, at band camp....) Cute Redheads truly are proof of a kind & benevolent Supreme Being. Re J&SBSB: I liked it, but I've liked all the Kevin Smith movies I've seen (haven't seen Chasing Amy yet). Clerks is probably my fav, if only because at one point in my life I _was_ Dante in his minimart hell. Like others have said, if you haven't watched & liked any of the other KS movies then Jay & Silent Bob probably won't do much for you. One other thing in it's favor: Eliza Dushku!!!

I used to think Jay and silent Bob were funny until I realized that they are disgusting liberal fucks.
