ASH's Review:

    The finale of the Viewaskewniverse series of movies finishes with a bong, er, uh, bang. Not even close to the best of the series, but definately a fun trip. Kev rips on everything and everyone with his tongue planted firmly in his cheek. I will admit that this film is NOT for everyone, but if you enjoyed the previous films you should enjoy this one as well.


  • [Silent Bob attempts to get his point across with pantomime.]
    Jay: Why don't you just say it?
    Silent Bob: [grabbing Jay by the collar] The sign on the back of the car said "Critters Of Hollywood", you dumb f**k!
    Jay: [mutters] Say it, don't spray it.
  • Banky: You know what? I feel for you boys, I really do, but Miramax - you know, Miramax Films - paid me a s**tload of money for Bluntman and Chronic. So it occurs to me that people badmouthing you on some website is none of my f**king concern.
    Silent Bob: Oh, but I think it is... We had a deal with you, on the comics remember, for likeness rights, and as we're not only the artistic basis, but also obviously the character basis, for your intellectual property, Bluntman and Chronic. When said property was optioned by Miramax Films, you were legally obliged to secure our permission to transfer the concept to another medium. As you failed to do that, Banky, you are in breach of the original contract, ergo you find yourself in a very actionable position.
    Jay: Yeah.
  • Chaka's Production Assistant: You the man.
    Chaka Luther King: No, you the man, and that's the problem.
  • Jay: Yo lunchbox, hurry it up!
  • Banky: That's what the Internet is for, slandering others anonymously.


  • David Duchovny was offered a small role, but eventually had to turn it down due to his commitment to "The X-Files".
  • Numerous references to Star Wars and its sequels throughout the film including, of course, the title.
  • Alanis Morrisette's appearance, marks one of the few times in movie history where an actress/actor appears for the first time in the movie, after being listed in the end credits.
  • Missy is played by Jennifer Schwalbach Smith, director Kevin Smith's wife.
  • When Jay and Silent Bob are running from the guards on the Miramax lot, they knock over a man in a Daredevil costume. Kevin Smith was a writer on "Daredevil" for Marvel Comics.

Credits Fun:

  • Credit for Malcom Ingram as a "Mewes Wrangler"
  • Like Smith's other films, this one closes with a snippet of Jay's dialogue
  • Instead of "Jay and Silent Bob Will Return In...", it now reads, "Jay and Silent Bob have left the building." There is then a clip of Jay saying "Snoogans".
  • After the credits, That Woman (God) closes the book on the View Askewniverse and prances away
  • No animals were harmed during the making of this film, but some internet snipers got their asses handed to them.

  • No gay people were harmed during the making of this film (however, some were used as test dummies in the creative process).
    Anybody who uses the insults contained in this film on any gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or heterosexual person --real, percieved or imaginary-- is a total dumbass!
  • Near the end of the credits, it says: How's our driving? Tell us at
