Looking forward to the flick, but I wish I could attend a Q&A. His Q&As are funnier than 99% of the stand-up out there.

I would love to attend a Q&A as well. It's kind of like stand-up except it's just someone who considers himself a regular guy telling stories about the entertainment industry.

The art style doesn't look like the animated series, any other info on what this is about?

I remember several years ago when I criticized Smith for not trying his hand outside the view askew/ Jay and Silent Bob universe. Boy was I wrong!

Stay in your little universe Kev, don't ever leave it again!

Curious if Kevin will allow this to play in theaters outside of theaters he selects

I'm afraid that this is going to be a Ricky Gervais Show style rip off, but we'll see.

Saw a clip from the movie that was released a month or so ago (unless that was just test footage). It was not funny at all. I'm a Smith fan from Clerks to Smodcast but it was awful.

Given the box office "success" of animation aimed at adults, I'd be surprised if other theaters would want it.

I've enjoyed everything Smith has done to a greater or lesser extent, so I'll be checking this out.

"Why do they call you Cock-Knocker?"

"Actually, there's a funny story behind that. Ha, ha, you're gonna love this. True story!"


I kind of wish they had done the movie in the animated series style.

I like Kevin Smith, but really wish he'd kick Jason Mewes back out to the curb. Smith is talented and funny...Mewes is not, and when they're together, Smith isn't either.

That was drastically unfunny. Why couldn't they get the same writers from the Clerks animated series?

Agreed 100%.
I watched Jay and Silent Bob Get Old: Tea Bagging in the UK and really found it tough to sit through. Mewes definitely dragged Smith down considerably.

Because they all have successful careers in Hollywood unlike Smith.

Mewes in best in small doses. I liked his part in Zack & Miri.

I was all set to get tickets until I saw the price. I know it comes with a Q & A, but I think I'll just listen to the SMODcast and Netflix it sometime down the road.
