This moment, this exact moment in time, will be known as the moment Kevin Smith sold out.

Kevin, my dear, a few life truths for you. Jersey Girl tanked because it A) didn't appeal to your core audience of arrested adolescents, and B) wouldn't even be looked at by anyone else, because they knew your core audience was made up of arrested adolescents.

The above doesn't mean it was a bad film.

The subject matter was clearly close to your heart, the film was very entertaining, especially to those of us who, like you, were arrested adolescents then grew up and had kids. The problem is, you left the cubbyhole your fans made for you...and John Q. Public hates it when you do that. Making a sequel to a film that requires absolutely no sequel is uncomfortably like...groveling outside your ex-girlfriend's door, begging her to take you back. Even if she does let you in, the quality of the resumed relationship just won't be the same. She'll have the upper hand and you will both know it. You'll be her doormat, to reward or punish as she chooses.

What I'm saying is, do the Green Hornet movie. It's nice that you have such a loyal Jay and Silent Bob fan base, but don't be limited by them, ok?

Excuse me, but there was NO sequel to The Matrix.

No sequel to The Matrix... No sequel to The Matrix... No sequel to The Matrix...

The only hope is that it's completely unrelated to the original, except for the characters...

Can you believe that was ten freakin' years ago?

Give him a break. This is the only thing he does well. And Jay needs work.
