Product Description

Product Description

An Evening With Kevin Smith is a no-holds-barred Q's most gifted filmmakers. Infamous for picking apart the pop culture landscape with films such as Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, the New Jersey native has become a veritable icon ofindep-endent film. Smith gives us a new lens to examine spirituality, sexuality, and human relationships. Get up close and - at times - very personal, with the man everyone has been waiting to hear from ... Silent Bob speaks!

To know the origin of "Snoochie-Boochies," you must spend An Evening with Kevin Smith. The Jersey-bred auteur of low-budget comedy proves equally adept as an uncensored raconteur, regaling five college audiences--his most devoted demographic--in this two-disc compilation of lively Q&A. Sporting his trademark slacker garb, Smith occasionally bites the loyal, sometimes moronic hands that feed him (as a result, audience participation is drop-dead hilarious), but he's arguably the most publicly and personally honest filmmaker to survive the insanity of Hollywood. His best stories lift the veil of show-biz decorum, describing absurd meetings with studio executives over his ill-fated screenplay Superman Lives; razzing the artsy pretensions of director Tim Burton; or exposing Prince (who hired him to direct a never-completed documentary) as a self-absorbed Jesus freak. These attacks aren't baseless; Smith's too smartly good-natured to provoke without purpose, and with an onstage visit by Jason Mewes ("Jay" to Smith's "Silent Bob"), this ribald, sharply assembled Evening compares favorably to Richard Pryor with its outrageous blend of comedy and candor. --Jeff Shannon

Kevin goes up on stage and talks about many diverse topics, most of them decided by the audience. Funny, never boring, Kevin's answers are usually on the spot and detailed enough to satisfy even the most hardcore fan.

Spread over 2 discs, the feature is culled from many different shows and cut together, a formula that's okay but sometimes lacks when you wish you had the complete thing... although you can find some in the many easter eggs planted on just about every single page, even in the scene menus... You may get about 15-20 more minutes.

Otherwise, there are no special features to look for, save maybe if you let the menu play for a long enough time and watch Kevin do his thing...

I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone intrigued by Smith and his New Jersey characters. Strong stage presence, loads of fun to be had, and many laughs make this 4 hour run look short.

Kevin Smith has done it again. He has released another "can't miss" release. In "An Evening with Kevin Smith", Kevin, aka Silent Bob of Jay and Silent Bob fame, delivers a performance of the best moments from five question and answer sessions on a college tour he did. The DVD is cut very cleanly, and at times you can't even tell it is in different venues. During the 3 hour, yes, 3 hour DVD, Kevin addresses subjects such as where the character of Jay came from, how he succeeded when so many people said he would fail, his collaboration with Prince on a never seen documentary, and even on his first sexual experience with his then girlfriend, now wife, Jennifer. This DVD set is definitely worth the purchase to any follower of Kevin Smith, or to anyone who wants to get into the psyche of one of the most original, and often controversial, Writer/Director/Producer of the new millennium. This DVD definitely earned the FIVE STARS I gave it..... somewhere in the initial 10 minutes of viewing and carried it throughout. All I can say is "Thank you Kevin. Thank you for giving us all what others are too coward to approach."

I liked this spotlight on Kevin Smith. There are some things that I didn't like about it. Lets start with the positive first ....... This is a very open and far spread interview (from his fans)with Kevin Smith which made a very funny and personal film. This also had some very witty views on his films (coming from Kevin and the fans that ask the questions). Everything that would be expected from Kevin and everything that wouldn't be expected. The story telling was simply great. I could not stop laughing !!!!!!!
The negative is the editing job on this was horrid. It drove me nuts!!!! They skipped from college to college with no segways.The audio and camera work was even kind of shotty in places but not enough to kill the mood. I think that Sony/Columbia could have found a better team to put this together. It seemed that J.M. Kenny was way over his head with this project or just didn't know what what to do as far as directing. The last thing is that they left the ending of the first DVD open. What happened after being asked to leave the stage? They never go back to that on the second DVD.

It is worth the money but you may want to watch a few of his films first to understand what is being talked about(in some places). It is truely a must have for a View Askew fan.

I don't really have a definite opinion about Kevin Smith. He's a terrible director and a decent writer who is capable of creating some pretty good flicks ("Dogma" and "Chasing Amy") as well as some of the worst pieces of cinematic crap ever ("Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" and "Mallrats"). I don't take him seriously one way or the other (unlike David Gordon Green who accuses him of "creating a Special Olympics for film," or the legions of his loyal followers who worship him), but I do appreciate his ability to write original, entertaining dialogues. Based on this DVD, he's quite a good storyteller too. He's witty, articulate, funny and full of interesting stories. I loved the behind-the-scene stories about his meeting with the studio execs, or run-ins with other celebs (such as Prince and Tim Burton), but rest of the stuff just fell flat. I guess the majority of his immature fans like to hear about the first time he had sex with his wife, or Jason Mewes' amateur sex tape, but I sure didn't find it even remotely interesting or funny. I would've enjoyed this a lot more had the Q&A focused on more on the film industry and cut out all the frat boy stuff.

I've never liked Jay & Silent Bob stikes back kind of films; any thing to do with the same genre, I beleived it was just beer inspired poor written films made by braindead highschool drop-outs.
Flipping through the movie network one afternoon, I found this show and watched to kill some time whilst working at the desk.
In four hours, a really down to earth, friendly, intelegent writer/director/actor named Kevin amuses all watching with hillarious tales of film making and every other encounter he has had related to life and movie business. He takes time to answer every diverse question asked by the audience, in which he answers them with time and great laughs. The best part is he has this great habbit of digressing all the time when answering audience members - which is so interesting, you'll discover things you never knew or thought you needed to know. Like what it was like working for Prince (The Artist Formally Known as Prince) - he describes every freakish habbit that arrose by Prince when working on a documentory with him.
To the detractors whom were grossed out by the penis jokes; you may want to remove that rod for just a short time and actually enjoy this show.
I'm hooked on his films now - totally changed my opinion of him and his films. And I recommend "Dogma" if you get the chance to rent or buy.
