  • Metatron: Anyone who isn't dead or from another plane of existence would do well to cover their ears right about now.
  • Metatron: Human beings have neither the aural nor the psychological capacity to withstand the awesome power of God's true voice. Were you to hear it, you're mind would cave in and your heart would explode within your chest. We went through five Adams before we figured that out.
  • Loki: I love f**king with the clergy.
  • Jay: If you know so much, tell me something about myself.
    Rufus: You masturbate more than anyone else on the planet.
    Jay: S**t, everyone knows that. Tell me something else.
    Rufus: When you do it, you're thinking about guys.
    [Silent Bob starts to look freaked out.]
    Jay: [to Bob] Dude, not ALL the time!
  • Jay: I feel like I'm Han Solo, and you're Chewie, and she's Ben Kenobi, and we're in that f**ked-up bar.


  • There are several references to George Carlin, including the name Rufus (his character from the Bill and Ted movies) and quotes from his stand-up act.
  • The exterior of "The Bootlegger" bar was shot in Highlands, NJ, Kevin Smith's home town.
  • The film was picketed by Roman Catholic groups.
  • There were eight different versions of the script and not one of them, including the shooting script, ever had anything about God "cleaning up" at the end. Kevin Smith had what he called an epiphany at the last minute. There had been a number of delays in shooting the scene, and the church eventually asked Smith to clean up the street. He chose to immediately clean up the street and add God "cleaning up" rather than disappoint the very accommodating church.
  • The Mooby restaurant's playground was created especially for the movie, It's shaped like a giant meat grinder.

Credits Fun:

  • The Director would like to thank:

    God - Whose idea it was to make both this film and me
    Scott - The most spiritual agnostic I know
    Jenny - Who gave me strength, love and major booty
    Mom and Dad - Who raised me catholic, more or less
    Affleck - A pimp with passion
    Gordon - Our honorary catholic jew
    Harvey - Our man on the ladder who didnt let us dangle
    The folks at Lions Gate - Who saved us from oblivion
    Mewes - See? Sober living paid off
    Yoeman - For raising that visual bar
    Howard - For that sweet Shore score
    Stoss - The long arm of the Law
    Phil - For making that cold call
    Kim - For holding down the fort
    Gina and Tony - For the full court press
    Try and wait - For no end of support and amusement
    Laura and Monica-For keeping us on time on budget and keeping Mosier happy (Professionally and otherwise)
    The Cast - For genius work at shamefull rates
    The Crew - For long hours and even more shameful rates
    Team Elliot and Shore Fire Studios - because I forgot to thank them in the "Amy" credits
    Harley Quinn - For giving me the opportunity to raise my own little Catholic
  • Opening text:

    1) a renunciation of any claim to or connection with;
    2) disavowal;
    3) a statement made to save one's own ass.

    Though it'll go without saying ten minutes or so into these preceedings, View Askew would like to state that this film is from start to finish a work of comedic fantasy, not to be taken seriously. To insist that any of what follows is incendiary or inflammatory is to miss our intention and pass judgement; and passing judgement is reserved for God and God alone (this goes for you film critics too...just kidding).

    So please before you think about hurting someone over this trifle of a film, remember: even God has a sense of humor. Just look at the Platypus. Thank you and enjoy the show.

    P.S. We sincerely apologize to all Platypus enthusiasts out there who are offended by that thoughtless comment about Platypi. We at View Askew respect the noble Platypus, and it is not our intention to slight these stupid creatures in any way.

    Thank you again and enjoy the show
