|Riotous. Writer/director Kevin Smith's mix of intelligent and crude humor has been a hallmark of his films "Clerks," "Mallrats," "Chasing Amy" and "Dogma," all of which have featured best buds Jay and Silent Bob archetypal stoners played, respectively, by the babbling Jason Mewes and the taciturn Smith. Delivered in varying doses from movie to movie, they functioned as a moronic Greek chorus when they weren't advancing a plot with ganja-fueled buffoonery. For the fifth and (reportedly) final film with the duo, they're at center stage on a quest to profit off or undermine a Hollywood movie based on comic book characters they inspired. It's peppered by more show-biz in-jokes than a Friars' Club roast. But it may require familiarity with Smith's projects for full appreciation, since he convinced actors from the other films Jason Lee, Ben Affleck, Chris Rock, George Carlin, etc. to reprise roles or make cameo appearances. With Will Ferrell, Shannon Elizabeth, Matt Damon, Mark Hamill and lots of extra treats.|
