I'm not sure If I'll even be seeing Kevin Smith's latest foray, "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" because I can't stand those two characters. They don't make me laugh and I don't find them interesting. I'm wondering though...when will Kevin Smith try doing something different other than what is essentially "Clerks 5?" Now, despite HORRIBLE acting, I liked "Clerks." It was a very funny movie. "Mallrats" was nothing less than atrocious and I don't think I'll ever watch that one again. "Chasing Amy" was probably his best film, but even that one was pretty uneven between comedy and drama. "Dogma" was another one that I absolutely hated. I didn't take offense to anything, but gee whiz, if he intended to make a satire, why on earth did Jay and Silent Bob take over the show? Anyway, Kevin Smith is ok, but a little overrated. I'm not a big fan, but I would like to see him try SOMETHING different other than all of these same types of movies and characters. Why doesn't he do what he does best and stick to writing good dialogue?
