Not being a big Ben Affleck fan I saw this movie with trepidation. What I saw was a very entertaining and well acted movie. Jay and Silent Bob steal the movie where Silent Bob actually gives some good words of wisdom. He tells Affleck that he should not dwell upon his girlfriend's relationships with her exes because whether it was better or worse the girlfriend is only interested in Affleck now so the past doesn't matter.

Silent Bob goes on to say that his relationship with "Amy" was ruined by not heading this advice and he didn't realize it till it was too late. Affleck still manages to muddle his relationship and not be able to enjoy his personal success in the comic book world because he still mulls over the blown chance he had with his girlfriend

About this movie


Writer-director Kevin Smith (Clerks) makes a huge leap in sophistication with this strong story about a comic-book artist (Ben Affleck) who falls in love with a lesbian (Joey Lauren Adams) and actually gets his wish that she love him, too. Their relationship is attacked, however, by his business partner (Jason Lee), who pulls a very unsubtle Iago act to cast doubt over the whole affair. The film has the same sense of insiderness asClerks--this time, Smith takes us within the arcane, funny world of comic-book cultism--but the themes of jealousy, deceit, and the high price of growing up enough to truly care for someone make this a very satisfying movie.--Tom Keogh
