One-line Reviews (100)

Very few funny parts and just a boring movie.

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

She is wooden and her friends were plain boring.

Such a waste of time.

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.

Unexpected throwback .

It's a fascinating look at different generational viewpoints.

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

I realize that the intended audience is not exactly broad, and I'm on the cusp of that and I enjoyed it.

If you like the Jay and Silent Bob series of movies then this self referential, self indulgent walk down memory lane will be right up your alley.

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

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.

So slow .

Following his near-death heart attack, Kevin Smith self-finances a film that redefines self-indulgence.

I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

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

Come in to watching this movie with that mindset and it will likely be more enjoyable.

The story makes a ton of references to the original show, which I watch probably 20 years ago and the jokes are a waste of time because I can't remember anything from the original.

Don't waste your time on this.

Definitely worth a watch if you're into the franchise, but a confusing viewing experience if you're not.

Kevin Smith's WORST Movie .

I enjoyed it like I did all the others, OK it's nowhere near as slick as Dogma or the Clerks movies.

I really enjoyed it.

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

And how does everyone that was ever in any of these movies look so fake, yet older than they are at the same time A true waste of time and life.

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.

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

So, as a 'die-hard' fan, I enjoyed it.

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

and it had some unexpected heart.

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

Kevin Smith is a decent director and writes Comic books and Comic Book movies pretty good but this Askenview verse is pretty boring.

A series of pop-culture-defining moments for fat-turned-slim Kev who has been coat-tailing on his long fizzed out inspiration while churning out puerile, boring flicks like Yogahosers and this.

Waste of time and awful just awful.

but it quickly became progressive propaganda and the jokes weren't even jokes.

The actors seem uninterested and the plot is just dull.

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

Entire film quite bored and not funny!

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

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

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).

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.

i enjoyed it and will watch it again and again.

Anyone else, don't waste your time.

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

Again, it can be confusing.

Don't waste your time!

The script is drawn out with obvious set ups for old jokes, that aren't nearly as funny second time around.

It's entertaining enough just watching out for random celebs.

This film has a very good cast and a decent premise that should've been more enjoyable than it was.

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

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

Most of them are just pretty dull stoner comedies.

Another boring film!

The "journey" part is where it got slow.

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.

Unwatchable in fact .

Boring.

Jay and Silent Bob take a trip to Hollywood to stop Kevin Smith, the director of such trite as Cop Out, Tusk and Jersey Girl, from ruining another film and their lives.

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.

Jay and silent bob are easily 20 years past entertaining...

This movie like all Kevin Smith movies is just bland.

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

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

Surprisingly entertaining .

Self-indulgent, self-referential fun.

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

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

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.

I'd rather watch paint dry on growing grass .

This was unbearable.

i enjoyed it almost as much as the first one (1 viewing, 3/22/2020)

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.

Bland rehash of old jokes .

I enjoyed it more than I thought I would .

Quite entertaining.

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.

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

Don't waste your time watching this

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

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

Worth the watch .

if you know how to plot a purely predictable course.

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.

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

Slow paced, poorly scripted, stunted dialogue.

"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.

Instead, pushing the trash of the world while boring everyone that got them where they are.

Don't waste your time.

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

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

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

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

Disgusting progressive propaganda and nepotism.

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

It's not even fun to make fun of it because it's just too boring.

It's lazy, unfunny and tedious to get through.

I enjoyed it.

I would recommend watching it for the celebrity cameos and jay was actually really enjoyable.
