    I'm surprised nobody has been talking about this yet.

    This is actually a pretty excellent little 2 disc set.

    It's 16x9 with a great picture.

    There are two Easter eggs, sporting each with a question from the audience.

    Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes are terrific, but Kevin pretty much takes control,

    Very entertaining and informative.
    Some stuff you've heard before if your a die hard Smith fan, but some stuff is brand spanking new.

    The Superman story(his involvement in writing it) and the Prince story(his secret documentary he filmed of Prince) is worth the price alone.

    The editing is kind of weird, as they edit all the Universities together, so You will mysteriously see Jason pop in and out.

    The only thing I wanted to see was
    Extra footage of when Kevin Smith got kicked out of one university by the union

    But overall, a great disc that is a must own.

    So do you have to have seen his films to appreciate this set or is it pretty universal?

    I couldn't stop laughing at that Superman story.
    If that film was ever made, it would have been so notorious.

    Other Easter Eggs are pretty good.

    I'd love to see another addition edited together, but maybe this was the best questions version.
    and that the other questions just sucked.

    I still want
    some more info or scenes about Kevin Smith getting kicked out of one university though

    Rented it the other night and was completely shocked at how much I enjoyed all 3.5 hours of it.

    I'm not a huge Kevin Smith fan, but I have a whole new respect for him after watching the DVD. I haven't laughed that hard in a while. Definitely worth at least a rent.

    I concur with what everyone else said. I love his films, but this is delving into the real Kevin Smith. The stuff you usually only get glimpses from in his films. That's one of the reasons I really enjoy his Audio Commentaries.
    He's not fake and hollywood, he's just a real guy. I hope they decide to release another one of these "Evening" type discs. Even if these were the most intresting questions, I'm sure even the ones they don't show are great.
    Wish the 10th Anniversary edition of Clerks wasn't a year away. But Jersey Girl will keep my Kevin Smith fix at bay until then. Anyone know when that's supposed to open at the theaters? [​IMG]

    I LOVED the Prince story! That had to be the highlight of the set for me!
    I took this to work and showed about 15 minutes of it on my laptop and they loved it!
    This is a great set, it is nearly a stand up routine with his stories. Mr. Smith is a very good story teller and had my co workers just enthralled and laughing!

    I agree. If you're a fan of his movies, this set is a must. There's some very funny stuff on those discs.

    I bought this one for myself thinking my wife wouldn't want to watch it. She thought it was hilarious and watched the whole thing.
    Wondered how much his wife liked the "open sore on his penis story"?

    Thanks so much for the Eggs! I tried but didn't find them

    I was very happy to see myself on the DVD. You'll see me wearing the red "Vulgarians" jersey that Walt the Fanboy wears in "Mallrats" "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" and the deleted scene in "Chasing Amy" during the University of Wyoming footage.

    Heard about this set last Sat night at 7:45, rushed over to BB and spent an hour in their "special interest" section (a real mess) searching, finally found their last copy. I sat up until 1am or so watching the entire thing and laughing my @ss off.

    Giant Spiders, Polar Bears, Princeworld, and in Hollywood you fail up!

    Can't wait to go back and try all those Easter Eggs!
