Director: Kevin Smith
Summary: When Jay and Silent Bob learn that a “Bluntman and Chronic” movie is being made featuring their comic book counterparts, they drool at the thought of fat movie checks rolling in. But when the pair finds that there won’t be any royalties coming their way, they set out to sabotage the flick at all costs.

Probably the worst decision of Kevin Smith’s career. He had just made Dogma, a solid movie that mostly showed he could write a cohesive script and put the right actors together. Most critics (at least the ones that matter) liked it. Yet he went out and made this movie to eviscerate all of his haters when he was at the apex of his career. Needless to say things went downhill from there. Not that Smith isn’t doing just fine. But if he had aspirations to be a respected filmmaker, it ended here.
That said, I watched this with friends and we were all drinking. You know how sometimes you go to a comedy club and you laugh at most of the jokes because everyone else is laughing and having a good time? But then a few weeks later you can’t remember what you laughed at or why? That was this movie for me. I’m sure if I watched it again alone I would hate it. The only thing I remember is Good Will Hunting 2, which was genuinely funny.
