Jay and Silent Bob go to Hollywood to ruin a movie. On the way there, they have many wacky adventures. The best one involves Eliza Dushku. My God she is hot. Seeing her makes me want to live! The scene with her on the balcony in a T-shirt drinking a bottle of champagne was the highlight of the movie. I'm serious. Not the comedic highlight, but certainly the most visually satisfying one.

So Wasteoid Jay and Zen Master Bob hit the road to Hollywood. They discover the internet in this movie and about all the malicious dorks who post nasty comments about the makers of filmed entertainment. Since they are being slagged without mercy, they feel they must have their vengeance. It's time to "Strike Back".

The ending of this flick felt like a sweet revenge fantasy for Kevin Smith. Jay and Silent Bob track down all the people who bad mouthed them and beat them up. Yeah, obsessive geeks who hide behind fake names on the internet and deride famous people on movie websites ought to have their ass kicked. So says Dr. Gore. [Start Heavy Sarcastic tone] In fact, I think movie stars are beyond criticism. Why can't we all just love every single movie they put out? Give them all our money and be happy with it. [End Sarcasm]. Does violence really solve anything against their critics? Jay and Silent Bob don't care when it feels so good.

Overall, "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" is a very funny, profanity-filled comedy. "Good Will Hunting 2" and Mark Hamill's Cockknocker attack were my two favorite spots. "Why do they call you Cockknocker?" "That's actually a funny story... AAAAHHHH!!" "Avenge me.." You'd have to see it. Besides, how can you not like a movie with Eliza Dusku, Ali Larter and Shannon Elizabeth as leather clad super criminals? How can you not?! Just don't make fun of Jay and Silent Bob. They're watching the websites and taking names.

SCORE: 3.5 out of 4 life-affirming Dushkus

I want to bugger Eliza Dushku (as she was in 1998 when she was 18, not as she is now obviously).

I want to bugger Ali Larter (as she was in 1994 when she was 18, not as she is now obviously). By the way, just to put things into perspective even more, have you seen Dushku lately? at 29 she is already far from the incredible chick she was at 18, those 11 years have not been kind to her, case closed. The moral being: never waste your time buggering a 30 year-old bird if you can bugger an 18 year-old chick instead.

I thought Ali Larter would get your attention as well.

Actually, I can't remember the last Eliza Dushku flick I saw. I remember her in "Wrong Turn" and this movie. Both prime Dushku flicks.

Yeah, she was 21 at the time of filming "Wrong Turn" (a very good horror movie) and still a hot babe.
