The Jay & Silent Bob Reeboot Roadshow at the Paramount Theatre, Asbury Park, NJ October 19, 2019

I had the pleasure of attending the Asbury Park screening of “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot” at the Paramount Theatre. The perfect place to get lost in cinema among a sold out audience was along for the ride of a raunchy, infectious and sometimes heart felt story. Creativity weaved into the film through comedy are messages of fatherhood, hope, forgiveness, responsibility and being able to accept people for who they are. Let’s not forget the occasional dick joke too. The storyline is pulled off well by Jason Mewes (Jay) and Harley Quinn Smith (Milly). Don’t get me wrong but this movie is built for the Kevin Smith fan with the typical jokes associated with Smith films. Then again, it has so many wonderful cameos that it hits on all pop culture cylinders. From Jason Lee, Tommy Chong, Thor himself, the Clerks crew and the return of Affleck, it’s a who’s who of Kevin Smith films. It ties so many storylines up in an escape into the View Askew universe like no other. I won’t say it’s my favorite Smith film but it was very enjoyable and worth the ride .

Kevin and Ernie talks about “GONE FOR THE WEEKEND” “I’m not taking away from him, but Troy was a boxer and he was never gonna be makin’ no movie. But then he saw us do it with CLERKS and he was like, ‘Those idiots make a movie, I can make a movie too.’ He did the lesson that I’ve been saying for years. If I can do this, anybody can do this, and the dude that lives literally right down the street from QUICK STOP picked up a camera and made a movie. It made me so happy’. Kevin Smith
