Ass means donkey

I spent the evening watching Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, on DVD.
Kevin Smith is so awesome. He’s living the dream for all of us who want to be successful in the entertainment industry, while kicking it in the nuts for how lame it can be. I met him a Comic Con two years ago, and (surprise) geeked out at him, and he was really cool to me. I’d really like to work with him, someday.
I’m going to bet that most of the WWDN readers have already seen this, but if you haven’t seen the DVD, yet, you must get your hands on one, by hook or by crook, so you can watch all the deleted scenes (there’s something like 90 minutes, or so of deleted stuff), and see all the spiffy extras on disc 2. There’s this thing called “The Genius of Will Farrell”, that made me feel totally bush league as an improviser, and there’s many precious minutes of all the girls running around in their undies. Always a bonus.
I blame this DVD, and Day of Defeat for keeping me up until almost 2 AM, and I haven’t even watched the movie with the commentary, yet. I’m going to have a lot of explaining to do with my wife tomorrow, when I can’t keep my eyes open when we take Ferris to class!

  1. kevin smith is a genius – i’m a christian but i have never laughed as hard as i did watching dogma.
    i finally saw galaxy quest, and you’re right – you definitely should have been in it. tim allen made a great william shatner. heh.

  2. Second comment! Yay!!
    Wil, I DEFINITELY agree about Kevin Smith. I haven’t seen Jay and Silent Bob Set, but I soon will! Give him a call though – get in his next movie! :) That’d be so cool!

  3. The J&SB movies are excellent.. and I really really likeed J&SBSB – but now I HAVE to get the DVD to check out some of that underwear action :)
    Well no.. I was considering getting it, and I know its loaded with extra features – but 90 minutes of deleted stuff? Definately SOLD ! :)

  4. Late night solo movie viewing is like mental masturbation. Necessary, private and a good way to keep yourself occupied when the spouse is asleep.
    Kevin Smith is groovy. Too bad Chasing Amy sucked such monstrous tallywhacker because of that whiny-assed girlfriend of his. Am I the only one who wanted to reach down her throat and yank Betty Boop out of her? Christ.
    But enough about me. Any movie with Ben Affleck in it will either be a) too fucking cool for the vagaries of the English language to ever to justice to, or b) so incredibly awful you’d rather stab your eyes out with a spork than sit through the whole thing.

  5. Agree with all the comments above. Kevin Smith is absolutely brilliant. All his movies are so wickedly funny. I first saw Clerks in a cinema in Madrid, and laughing so hard at the hideous comedy it contained. I’ve not seen Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, because it hasn’t made it to mind-numbingly mainstream Amsterdam yet – (don’t believe the hype about this place, it rains a lot and the love stuff like Armageddon for farks sake).
    I’ve tried to educate my friends by loaning them the Kevin Smith movies, Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy & Dogma, they’ve only really heard of Dogma thanks to the righteous protests that the film generated.
    I dunno, no sense of humour these religious types.
    Perhaps that’s why there’s so many wars kicking off around the place. – I dunno. It’s a funny movie though all the same.

  6. I have to admit I haven’t actually seen Silent bob and Jake strike back, but it is on my to do list. In fact I’m desperate to see it, but I haven’t managed to get my hands on a copy yet, although my friend has a copy downloaded from the net so I am going to try and borrow that.

  7. almost thought u were talkin’ about kevin todd smith. r.i.p. 64-02 actor from xena warrior princess/hercules legendary journeys. :(

  8. Wow, Wil, I wonder how the hell you are gonna explain to your wife that you were awake until 2 AM because that damn Kevin Smith guy put girls running around in their undies as a bonus to his DVD =)
    Can’t wait to hear what happens next =)

  9. I watched it Friday night with friends. I think that Clerks and Dogma remain my favourites. The dvd of dogma is really cool too.
    Wil you should definately be in his next film. He made a documentary of last years Prince celebration so maybe he could make one about your comedy school or you could improv a film with jason lee.

  10. I too love Kevin Smith flicks, the critics seem to hate him. You know what they say about critics ? They eat the cock.
    By the way the worst/best bit in Day of Defeat is the village with all the snipers. My personal favorite was the German shepards on the snow level running at you out of the fog. I did try to do my jedi mind trick on them but they just bit my ass to death :(.

  11. Hehe…
    Day of Defeat IS addictive, you do know that… Right?
    I’m having a hard time prying the computer away from my wife after her 8th hour online playing DoD. What can I say… She’s hooked big time.
    *L*

  12. oh wait Day of DeFeet. I’m such a dumbass I saw Medal of Honour for some reason. I haven’t had a chance to play DOD. So it’s good eh? Time to re-install half life again :)

  13. I have not been able to get a copy of kevin’s newest flick, but it is high on my task list. Dogma is one of my all time faves. It was a brilliant piece of work as with Kevin’s other flicks.
    And do let us know how the wife deals with you watching the girlie in undies section of the dvd. It’s another point to kevin’s brilliance to get you to watch everything he wants to say; just put skimpily clad women on the screen and he has got 90% of guys paying close attention to the subject matter portrayed. The other 10% just suck anyway (pun intended), so they would not be interested. =)

  14. I haven’t been able to get over the fact that everyone actually likes Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back… I thought it was a huge step down from Dogma. Instead of page upon page of hillarious & insightful dialog there was just a bunch of stupid sight gags.
    Even Roger Ebert reviewed it as high as Dogma. I guess that I’m missing something. I don’t see how, though, because I even liked Mallrats.
    Maybe I was expecting too much out of it. The only good laugh I got out of it is when Jay was singing at the beginning of the movie outside of the Quick Stop.

  15. As a self-professed (more-than-slightly-obsessed) “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” fan, I *must* say: any film featuring Eliza Dushku gets the thumbs-up from me. ;)

  16. Day of Defeat? What kinda moron are you, Wil? ;)Return to Castle Wolfenstein is far, far better, and far, far, far, far better looking.

  17. Not quite sure what to say about this one, Wil. I think I’m the only guy my age who hasn’t seen JSBSB. Maybe I should see it, then? :op

  18. I knew that you were cool, Wil, but finding out that you’re a Kevin Smith fanboy only makes you cooler. He’s my favourite filmmaker, without a doubt, and I too spent hours watching the J&SBSB DVD. I think that you’d be great for a film of his.
    I think that Dogma and J&SBSB are so radically different that it’s like apples and oranges. How could a movie all about those two be anything but dick & fart jokes? While it doesn’t rate as my favourite Smith film (that’s Chasing Amy, despite the Betty Boop factor) I think that it was a fitting end to the whole View Askew-niverse.

  19. JSBSB, very funny. But I was up untill 3am! HA!
    I was actually laughing out loud at this flick (something I NEVER do). So loud in fact that my roommate had to tell me to “Shut-up or die a slow painful death.”
    The only other film to make me laugh like that recently was KUNG-POW: ENTER THE FIST.
    Hmmmm….I wonder what would happen if Oedekerk and Smith teamed up to make a movie……That would be cool.

  20. Wil, it’s okay to stay up and have a hoot. Myself, I stayed up (and geeked out) until 5:30 this morning (eastern time) watching the shuttle Columbia rendezvous with the Hubble Space Telescope and retrieve it for servicing. Coolest thing I’ve done since I got broadband access!

  21. That is completely weird, I spent all day yesterday watching Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back too. And as soon as it was over, I too had to watch all the deleted scenes. I am going back to school a day late because of that, but it was totally worth it.

  22. Yeah man my buddy and I rented that last night, check out the music videos on disc two, it has stroke 9 and they r watching the videos and they fly to every video who sucks and kicks some ass.

  25. Wil,
    Definitely get the _Dogma_ Special Edition DVD. It’s worth it in order to see Jay and Silent Bob do a rendition of the theme to “Fat Albert.” :-)
    Unfortunately, though, Kevin is not doing any more films set in the ‘View Askewiverse,’ as it’s called … in other words, no more films that will feature Jay and Silent Bob.
    Still, the next flicks in the works are a “Fletch” remake starring Jason Lee and a very personal film called “Jersey Girl,” which supposedly will derive inspiration from Kevin’s experiences with fatherhood.

  26. I love Kevin Smith films. Dogma is so awesome. J&SBSB is a great way to wrap up the View-Askewiverse. The inside jokes intended for the true fans of these films were great. I’m waiting for payday to pick up J&SBSB on dvd later this week.
    PS: I couldn’t believe it when I heard Kevin “Aries” Smith from Xena died. He was too young. So sad.

  27. I went to 3 stores to get it on Friday. Two Targets, which looked at me like I had 3 eyes when I asked about the movie) and Best Buy, who were out, and as I was about to get my raincheck, brought out 2 more boxes.
    I laughed my ass off – and I too watched the movie, the gag reel and the deleted scenes. I LOVE Kevin Smith – I think he’s a genius. The best scene – when J&SB crash the set of “GWH2 – Hunting Season” and Matt & Ben are ripping on each other for poor movie choices. A frickin stitch. (that, and the comment “Ben Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms” had me rolling!)
    And, until the deleted scenes, I didn’t realize that was Kevin’s wife.
    SNOOTCHIE BOOTCHIES!

  28. To everyone who’s seen JASBSB: Did you notice that, once they get to Hollywood, every time we see a clapper board, that particular movie is shooting scene 37D? Anyone know what that’s about?

  29. Kevin Smith is hilarious. He spoke here in Bloomington last fall, and he talked for about FOUR HOURS!!! (Nearly one of which was about being tricked to come up to Prince’s fantasy-land-recording studio to do a documentary, where they were virtually held hostage by Prince himself, who spent hours at a time preaching to a captive audience about Jesus.) The auditorium security finally had to come and remove him from the stage because they had to close the building!
    They also filmed it for one of his upcoming DVDs, so who knows, someday everyone can share the joy. (; )

  30. Word, bitch! J&SBSB like a mofo! However, am I the only one that was a bit disturbed at how Mewes looks in the intros to the bonus stuff? *SHUDDER* Whoever told him that that facial fuzz looked good needs to take it back.

  31. um wil… Uncle Willy… sir…
    you’re complaining that you stayed up until almost 2 a.m. on a saturday night? SNL is on until 1 a.m. here, and last i knew it was a weekend and you were pushing 30, not 70! on a weekend around here it’s considered weird it you don’t stay up until at least 4 a.m….
    but, 2 a.m. there is like 5 a.m. here, so i’ll applaud you for that… i was only up until 4.
    in other news…
    haha, i watched “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” a little over a month ago on video :P
    but now i gotta watch it on dvd…
    by the way, did the boys like it?
    peace, love, and bubble-gum,
    Ronda LOU

  32. Hahaha the dvd is sweet man. Kevin Smith is great, and Jason Mewes.. Mmmmm. . Yeah anyways, cool post. Never read a better one of yours. :D

  33. Wil, What is your name on DOD? I might have played you before. I case anyone wants to know, mine is *-{Steadfast}-*FMyWu. I know it has kept me up FAR TO LATE on nights where I have a 930 class in the morning. Just dont tell me you are in a clan. Especially a camping clan. Those lousy camping @#$%#%^$. In any case.
    ESpark. I have played Return to Castle Wolfenstien. It did look better, but DOD is MUCH more fun, and now that DOD 2.0 is out, I must say that I prefer it anyday.

  34. “The name is boo boo kitty fuck!” I love that line- that movie is HALARIOUS! I can’t wait to own it on DVD and add it to my collection.My hubby got me hooked on Kevin Smith, he’s soo cool.I was rasied Catholic but am now a freelance beleiver,(I respect all religious aspects) Dogma makes so much sense to me, it’s one of my faves!!!!
    Love
    Boo Boo.

  35. This site is great! I was turned on to it ’cause someone on the View Askew website (http://www.viewaskew.com/newboard/index.html) reposted Wil’s Jay and Silent Bob posting. I was a huge fan of yours (Wil’s) when I was a kid, and I’m really glad to read here that you’re doing so very well these days!! You know how when you’re a kid and you’re a fan of someone and you fantasize that they’re just like you? Reading this website, I’m beginning to believe that I was right. :) I’ll be sure to visit this website every day from now on :)

  36. I too have succumbed to the power of DOD v2. If you have any regular servers, you should post em, or your usual name. Then I could tell my freinds, “I got shot by Wil Wheaton!”

  37. I got shot by Wil Wheaton!
    For some reason I just crack up every single time I say that.
    Adem, what is your screen name? I might have played you as well.

  38. >>Did you notice that, once they get to Hollywood, every time we see a clapper board, that particular movie is shooting scene 37D? Anyone know what that’s about?
    you’re being facetious right?
    “my girlfriend sucked 37 dicks!”

  39. “CHASING AMY” RULES!! OK “CLERKS” was cool too.
    His other films are fair..well maybe better than
    fair…Fair++.
    Roughy are you REALLY in Ireland? lol

    Did you see the one where the guy cut and pasted it in, or the one where I linked to here? There were two.
