I'm generally a big fan of Kevin Smith (particularly Clerks obviously, but also like Mall Rats and Dogma. Chasing Amy I can take or leave and less said about Jersey Girl the better eh?) so looked forward to him tying up his Red Bank NJ/View Askewniverse (depending on which phrase you go with) films here. It was a real disappointment he chose to do it with a Farrelly Brothers clone film like this.
The film features loads of cameos and references to previous films (both Smith's and others), and it looks like it was great fun to make, but it's a bit of a mess, particularly the first hour or so. It just seemed like a cash-in, rather than a necessary or fitting bookend to these movies (not really a series).
There are some really good bits. Smith's dialogue can be inventive and funny (aware of the irony of me writing this about movies on the internet when that is a major dialogue bit in the fillum, maybe I should go and "share pornography" next). The Will Ferrell character is good as is the "Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season" idea. I have to say (major choke-age here) that Ben Affleck sends himself up very amusingly and is almost bearable in this (god it took a lot to type that). Also nice to see George Carlin working, but don't think he'll be amazingly proud of his cameo here.
On the whole though the relentless homophobia, sexism and plain unlikeableness of Jason Mewes (maybe the drugs have changed him because he was pretty engaging in weird way in earlier films despite much the same juvey non-PC-ness) along with the hastily thrown together scripting and concept make this a very disappointing film.
