  • Fan-focused to a fault, Jay & Silent Bob Reboot tries to mock the same audience nostalgia it's mining -- and pulls it off often enough to satisfy the faithful.

    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.

    The most uninspired and unfocused load of fan service that Smith has yet unleashed on his remaining hardcore audience.

    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.

    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.

    By the end, I got the feeling that Kevin Smith really has his foot in two generations and doesn't know where to commit.

    It's got its irreverent laughs, but it's also slightly embarrassing, the sort of lazily written exercise in self-worship only a fan could truly love.

    Suited for fans and made for them, this is the sequel (and hopefully a last chapter) only a nostalgic Smith could have made. [Full review in Spanish].

    Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is essentially The Irishman or Avengers: Endgame of the View Askewniverse. A hardcore fans-only version of Kevin Smith bingo on the big-screen.

    A major Marvel/Avengers star turns up in the scenes set at Chronic-Con, although it's the end-credits cameo that might lead to eyes tearing up (nuff said).
