Snootchie Bootchies!! It's The Trailer For JAY & SILENT BOB'S SUPER GROOVY CARTOON MOVIE!!
The Kidd here...
At this point, you're either still on the Kevin Smith fan train, or you're not... and judging by the reaction to Smith's potential plan for CLERKS 3, I'd say the amount of you that have had enough of the writer-director's choices in recent years are increasing. However, that's not to say those former fans couldn't be swayed back, or that there aren't still die-hards that'll watch anything Smith attaches his name to. Someone's got to be watching COMIC BOOK MEN, right?
This morning, Smith and Jason Mewes dropped the trailer for their new animated film JAY & SILENT BOB'S SUPER CARTOON MOVIE, which may be right up the alley for those of you who enjoyed the hell out of his earlier View Askew movies (I was one of you... still am). There is a lot of Mewes as Jay here... and I mean A LOT, with the whole trailer basically being voiced by him. Now I've found the character remains plenty funny over the years in short bursts... hell, even in STRIKES BACK, there were a number of other characters for him to play off... but if he is going to be called upon to really carry the brunt of this movie as the trailer might imply, with some super-villains popping in every so often to do battle, his schtick is going to get really tired really quick in this effort. In addition, it feels like we've seen a fair amount of what was done here in both MALLRATS and STRIKES BACK, so I don't necessarily know that there's new ground to be paved this time out. Sadly, this one feels like a bit of a retread.
We'll see if there's more to JAY & SILENT BOB'S SUPER GROOVY CARTOON MOVIE than meets the eye though starting in a few weeks as Smith and Mewes take the film on the road as they did with RED STATE, bringing it straight to the films, complete with post Q&A, for a premium price (looks like tickets which just went on-sale this morning are at least going to run you 52 bucks).
But take a look at the trailer... perhaps this is something you feel you might want to experience live with a crowd of Smith fans for yourself.
