I really liked the movie. Lots of self referential gags make it a must to have seen the other Kevin Smith movies. This is a sort of formula road picture with a couple of characters I have really grown to love. This is in the same class as movies like Strange Brew which take familiar characters and give them a simple plot line to follow. No great surprises but surprisingly witty in parts. This is a straight low brow comedy with none of the controversy of Dogma. If you are looking for the somewhat awkward but brilliant dialogue from some of Kevin Smiths other films you may be disappointed, but as a straight buddy road movie it delivers all the laughs.
This is one of the most entertaining dvds I own. It's packed with extra features. The commentaries with Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith before the deleted scenes are worth the price alone, those guys are hilarious even when they are trying not to be. The extra features are as much fun as the movie itself - you totally get your money's worth with this one. If you loved this movie, you've gotta pick up this dvd.
