I enjoyed the movie quite a bit... Unfortunately, Smith cannot resist his old stand-bys.

Formulaic script and uneven tone. Disappointing.

A cloying attempt at mainstream fodder...

Jersey Girl obeys the classic conventions of romantic comedy but there are ingredients in this mix that raise it a notch above average.
June 23, 2008
The script stoops to cheap gags that undercut Affleck's efforts to sustain a believable character.

Jersey Girl marks a low point for the tubby New Jersey auteur.
September 24, 2007
Mature and heartfelt, though not overly saccharine.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 29, 2006
It takes more than a couple of dirty one-liners to retain your edge in light, predictable fare.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 25, 2006
Affleck is at ease in this down-to-earth drama in a way that he never seems to be in his action movies, and Castro seems like a genuine child instead of like a child actor.

Smith reinvents the romantic-comedy by making a film about a man in love with his kid.

In several ways Jersey Girl is more appealing than Clerks or Mallrats.... Nonetheless, it lacks the smart observational-humor edge and often thoughtful boldness -- and, most frustratingly, the promise -- of Chasing Amy or Dogma.
July 20, 2005
A romantic comedy seriously marred by a clunky plot and a couple of characters that are hard to sympathize with.
Full Review | Original Score: C

Jersey Girl emerges as Kevin Smith's most polished effort to date, but not his funniest.
Full Review | Original Score: B
April 2, 2005
People who find Smith's work too brazen or fringe will really fall for this picture, likewise those easily pleased by this genre will enjoy. Hardcore fans may be very upset by Smith doing something so ordinary and even mundane.

March 5, 2005
In a strange way, it's both the most mainstream and the most personal movie Smith has made to date.

Jersey Girl is like that new Liz Phair album ... it sometimes sounds unmistakably like Kevin Smith but you never quite believe he could be so platitudinous and predictable.

Even as the critic in me raged against the clichés, I found a big old lump in my throat and blinked back a few tears.

Kevin Smith inserts enough of his special charm to make "Jersey Girl" a winner.
| Original Score: B+
August 8, 2004
This is not the hard, cutting-edge Kevin. This is the soft and runny Kevin, trying (a little too hard) to work within the system. It's lame, man.
July 20, 2004
'Quizá sea reciclado de otras tantas cintas por el estilo, pero el toque de Smith aparece para hacer de este ejercicio un recomendable filme sobre el acto de maduración.'
| Original Score: 3/4
