This film has been a long time coming. View Askewniverse fans have been waiting patiently for 13 years, since Clerks II was released. I must admit, it has been worth the wait! Jay and Silent Bob Reboot pokes fun at sequels, remakes, and reboots, while being all three at the same time! It's clever in that respect, and yet it gives die hard fans exactly what they want, filling the film with cameos and throwbacks galore. The plot itself is rather familiar: Jay and Silent Bob are on their way to Hollywood, to stop a film of Bluntman and Chronic from being made. Here, they learn all about what a "reboot" is, and the mayhem that ensues is comedic gold. It may not be cinematic brilliance, but it is a lot of fun for the right crowd.
Original theatrical aspect ratio: 2.35:1 (Digital)
