It's fascinating to look at the reception to Kevin Smith's latest film, "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot," the long-awaited seventh chapter in the twenty-five year old franchise known as the "View Askewniverse.

A very slow burn that gets you high at the end.

"Jay And Silent Bob Reboot" isn't a reboot that needed to happen, but it still manages to be entertaining if you're a fan of Kevin Smith's universe.

She is wooden and her friends were plain boring.

a waste of time of a movie that fit another era...

If you don't like it, watching the reboot is a waste of time.

I've watched zit popping videos on youtube that were more entertaining.

Anyone else, don't waste your time.

The storyline is very disjointed as is the case with many of his films, most of the Smith tropes have aged as well as can be expected, which is not well.

I really enjoyed it.

There is enough cameos and celebrity appearances to be entertaining which is probably the best parts of the movie.

Waste of time and awful just awful.

I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

Don't waste your time!

Unexpected throwback .

Other bits may depend on how you feel about the performers.. Molly Shannon and Fred Armisen for example are very hit and, mostly, big MISS for me.. so those scenes really dragged the film down (for my taste).

This movie was very funny with a great cast and a slightly different story but what I liked was it felt like i was watching jay and silent bob strikes back but better this had me laughing out loud didn't seem boring with the original it's not one you can watch to many times because it just looses it charm after its first view but the new one I have seen twice and it was funnier the second time having diversity lgbtq and the same cast as well as some new faces felt refreshed and new and i loved it i teared up and smiled and i found this more enjoyable now if only they would make a second dogma i would pay anything to see that and the cast looks almost the same except for ben and the cameo with matt damon was perfect it is going into my collection

Another boring film!

Despite having aged quite a bit since their last outing, Mewes and Smith slip right back into the shoes of their stoner alter-egos and are as entertaining as ever.

Not funny on any level, with no story or plot , just a desperate cash grab from a man who either doesn't care anymore or lost his gift

Not a great movie, but very enjoyable for a fan of Mr. Smith.

I enjoyed it and it's fantastic to see these characters again.

In real life people evolve, none of these characters have, they're the same but move slower and have wrinkles.

The most enjoyable part for me was getting a glimpse of what could have been How High 2 with Redman and Method Man.

The actors seem uninterested and the plot is just dull.

if you know how to plot a purely predictable course.

Loved Kevin smith movies 20 years ago, but this hasn't changed with the times, it's bad, boring, predictable, not funny....

He seems to be relying on the same style of humor that fans of his previous films found so entertaining 20 years ago.

i enjoyed it and will watch it again and again.

Worth the watch .

If you like Smiths previous efforts, you will find something enjoyable here even if it is brief nostalgia.

Boring.

Surprisingly entertaining .

So slow .

Again, it can be confusing.

It has moments where it's really fun, but also long stretches where its slow and just didn't work for me.

This was one of the worst movie going experiences of my life.

Don't waste your time.

Whenever the teen cast was on screen, the movie slows down for awhile and becomes unwatchable, I think these were meant to be breaks for people to step out of the theater and smoke a joint.

Irony of making a cliché reboot with all text book elements and explaining it step by step is golden.

I usually love Kevin Smith's work but this is one of his worst movies.

So yeah, it's confusing even for those who done their studies.

Beyond every negative critisism that just find its way in the mainstream statement "I'll follow the mass", the word/concept "REBOOT" is totally nailed, because beyond the little/short plot, this movie is a self-parody just because it is about rebooting Jay and Silent Bob and Smith just centres the point with no-sense scenes that go in and out continuosly, confusing the spectator as a reboot (a bad one) does most of the time.

It's a fascinating look at different generational viewpoints.

Jay makes the film, he's pretty spot on and even adds levity to the slow emotional father subplot.

Waiting for a car on the BART is more entertaining than this movie.

The difference between the tight punchy sharp script that was Clerks and the stilted, heavily stoned plodding of this film is so huge, it's embarrassing to watch.

I enjoyed it more than I thought I would .

I enjoyed it.

Do waste your time with this film, if you want to see a great film by this joker, watch clerks, it never gets old.

The main plot is a McGuffin (literally, in the end it fades to Jay and Silent Bob hanging outside the Quick-Stop with Jay's new daughter, and the whole plot is suddenly dropped and literally nothing from it resolved) it just serves as an excuse for Jay to learn to be a father (and Smith by proxy to reflect on fatherhood in his own trite, cliche, goofy way) against a backdrop of dropped references, guest appearances and stoner antics.

It's like a View Askew reunion show where really funny people rely on nostalgia and bland, boring, parental monologues to try unsuccessfully to gratify the fan base.

So many times I wanted to turn it off, but I persisted hoping it would get better, but it dragged, lacking everything a good Kevin Smith film can have.

It lacked any creativity the first one had, had no comedy, was poorly written, and was just plain boring.

The star studded cast makes it even more enjoyable to watch.

Kevin Smith's WORST Movie .

Heartfelt, entertaining and full of Smiths trademark raunch, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is a hilarious return for the titular stoners.

Good story that is fun to follow - 1 StarMemorable dialogue - 1 StarFeel a pull to watch it a second time - 1/2 StarMusic/Score stands out - 0 StarsNo noticeable plot holes - 0 Stars (hard zero)Story gets resolved in some way - 1/2 StarI personally like the story - 1 StarMemorable likable characters - 1 StarMost things about the story are believable - 1/2 StarDoesn't get boring - 1/2 Star A TON of cameos, pretty much the whole movie is cameos.

Entire film quite bored and not funny!

Unwatchable in fact .

Don't waste your time on this.

The "journey" part is where it got slow.

This was unbearable.

CRAP.. QUITSORRY..But.. Waste of money from the point of the idiots that dragged you pair out of REHAB and MORE so for the poor fan boys (non of which have ever smoked weed)REFUND THE TICKETS etc.

And now that the only thing he tries to do is make his daughter a star, it's unwatchable.

Some jokes were timed greatly, and appropriately for genuine laughs, the obvious nods to the Hollywood cultural industry sometimes striked as awkward and uninspiring.

Very few funny parts and just a boring movie.
