Some Good Moments But All In All Falls Flat
16 October 2019 | by thenzaSee all my reviews

I gave this movie a 6.6 out of 10.

It wasn't bad and it wasn't altogether good. I'll start with the good.

Kevin Smith's daughter gives a great performance and Jay holds his own.

Harley Smith fit perfectly in this movie which is odd and to go further with that that oddness is what makes cult movies like this good; that you are seeing something not mainstream or one dimensional in a character so it feels so props to that.

The movie within the movie is basically the premise that was reused from the first one. I personally hate when there is any movie that has to go to Hollywood to get a movie stopped or a movie within a movie so going in I knew it was gonna be a moving plot. The idea that this movie is just a reboot for the first one is quirky and SOMEWHAT works, but it mostly doesn't towards the end and I feel was a way for Kevin Smith to cover his nuts with the poor execution of a story that was probably written while stoned.

With that said, the ugly: the plot barely holds on its on not the premise the premise works but it was basically written with no production in mind at all on how to go from one scene to another, it was clown shoes. Jokes were reused some work some don't (jay makes most work) When it is over the top on how they get things done it's funny, comical, stoner making things work while forgetting; otherwise it is a big bag of fuuck flakes.

I personally did not like that Kevin Smith was pretty much a lead in this I mean he is a side kick if not less I get you almost died and this is basically your legacy but damn I do not find him interesting at all. For the most part emphasis on family and growing up was thrown in there like a dissected horse, and not for nothing but damn some of these actors are looking their age.
