Smith has crafted a heartfelt, thoughtful film with Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. You didn't read that incorrectly.
October 21, 2019
This is the ENDGAME of all of Kevin Smith's movies and it's magnificent, hilarious and heartfelt.
October 18, 2019
Filmmaker Kevin Smith is delighted to be playing with his old toys again, and it shows in the funny, heartfelt, and meta "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot."
October 18, 2019
A slightly winded but entertaining offering of exaggerated madness, with the whole thing dipped in nostalgia and sentimentality for maximum response.
October 18, 2019
Kevin Smith is not interested in just fan service. There's plenty of it, but this film is ultimately Smith's plea to look to the future. The film's follow-up to Chasing Amy drives this home, and Ben Affleck still gets the best inside joke.
October 17, 2019
Awkward and unfunny in exceptionally long stretches, Reboot probably won't turn his diehard fans against him. But it's unlikely to win him any new converts either. For that, there's Clerks, Mallrats, or Chasing Amy.
October 17, 2019
A star-studded celebration of the entire history of Smith's movies, revisiting past characters, storylines, and allowing him a chance to correct past mistakes in a way few filmmakers ever get to do.
October 16, 2019
Neither Strike Back nor Reboot could survive its runtime without this painfully obvious level of self-awareness, but that still doesn't excuse either movie, particularly Reboot, from stretching itself rather thin and winking about a dozen too many times.
October 16, 2019
For all its redundancies, authentic character growth is wholly new. These characters now add substance to their own story.
October 16, 2019
The most uninspired and unfocused load of fan service that Smith has yet unleashed on his remaining hardcore audience.
October 16, 2019
A 3,000-mile drive that's almost entirely fueled by fan service...Smith basically just swings from cameo to cameo in the hopes that no one will care that his movie is short on actual scenes.
October 16, 2019
Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is an entertaining return to the View Askewniverse that celebrates the past while keeping an eye fixed on the future.
October 16, 2019
The bar for admission may be a little high⁠ - especially if you haven't seen Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, a lot of the jokes will miss for you⁠. If you understand what you're watching, you're bound to love it.
October 16, 2019
...Smith offers up a preponderance of ineffective sequences that, for the most part, are hopelessly flat and suffer from an almost total lack of laughs...
October 16, 2019
Smith has every right to be older and wiser here, and "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot," with its gentle anarchy and not-quite-mock nostalgia, is a time-machine sequel that passes the time amiably enough.
October 16, 2019
Jay and Silent Bob Reboot assembles a star-studded cast in a film that isn't afraid to get emotional while also pointing fun at reboots.
October 16, 2019
Jay and Silent Bob Reboot won't change the mind of any hater. But if you're a fan, it's custom-made to make you have a good time. [Full review in French]
October 15, 2019
A successful return to form for Kevin Smith... It may be his raunchiest film in years, but it's also his most emotionally intelligent.
