Want an honest review from a fan? Yes, I liked it, and yes I thought it was funny. Was it the funniest movie I've ever seen? No. Was it my favorite Kevin Smith movie? No.
First, what I liked about it. The over all feel of the movie was like the cast was having a party. Everyone seemed to be having a good time, even Wes Craven with his wooden delivery. Even when the jokes were stupid, I laughed just because it was like hearing a bad joke from a best friend.
What I didn't like about it. Not enough of the 'smart funny' Kevin Smith dialogue that you owe your career too. Face it, this movie doesn't exist because of Jay and Silent Bob's scenes in Clerks. It exists because people fell in love with Dante's and Randall's debates about contractors on the Death Star. Yes, I realize this movie was about Jay and Bob, and therefore their humor was the focus. I also realize that you made this movie as kind of a way to get past this type of writing (thanks Holden).
But I still missed having a Jeff Anderson or a Jason Lee around just remind myself that I still had a brain.
Hope this helps, and sorry about losing out to two mediocre Hollywood crap-fests. And thank god, I mean THANK GOD you beat Summer Catch!
