Mewes debut

You have to love Jason Mewes, The debut of Mewes as director is not perfect, (which isn't a bad thing), but is fun, something that we need nowadays, plus, this blend of fiction with some real life events are handled in a very professional way, the cameos are perfect, and watching Stan Lee was great... I really hope this is the beginning of a series of movies where you can see Mewes and friends acting and having fun... Some people may not like it, but I loved to watch it!

Surprisingly Funny

Just one small spoiler-ish opinion at the end about the ending that may give away or hint at the ending. Don't read the last paragraph if you're worried about spoilers. The rest is safe. I wasn't really expecting much from this. But I'm kind of an old school Kevin Smith/ViewAskew fan from the 90s. I remember meeting Jason and Walt Flanagan at the comic book store in Redbank and thinking that they were both so real and down to earth. You could tell how characters were based on who they really were. This movie pokes fun at that universe that Kevin created and people's perceptions of the people in his movies vs the characters they play. There is a scene when Kevin and Jason are arguing and Kevin gets really mad. Seriously, that's probably the first real acting he's ever really done. You're never going to get t a point where you suspend belief for this movie, but it was cool to see them playing "themselves" in such different ways. I liked it. There were many familiar faces and references, but it was not obnoxiously laden with overkill cameos or blatant throwbacks that Kevin is more known for- which was nice. I was afraid that he was going to have more input or influence in it. It is definitely not a Kevin Smith movie. The plot was silly and the story was not anything amazing. But there were some very funny moments. Definitely worth seeing if you are fan of Kevin's older movies. But don't expect a Kevin Smith movie. Without giving a blatant spoiler, I had hoped for more of an ending in the vein of American Psycho. I thought that would have been a clever way to wrap it up.

Mewes the actor, thumbs up, Mewes the director, thumbs down.

As long as he is remembered at all, Jason Mewes will be known as Jay of Jay and Silent Bob. In that cycle of movies from Clerks through to Clerks 2 (and soon Jay and Silent Bob Reboot) , two things were clear, the guy was genuinely funny and not a professional actor. This wholly fictional movie kind of takes that and runs with it. Mewes is desperate to break out as a serious actor and gets hold of a legendary book on method acting that will change his life. Yes, this entire movie hinges on a paperback book with a forgettable title. And that book literally drives Jason Mewes insane. The shocking thing is that Mewes is a literal sociopath in this movie as he rather violently rampages through Hollywood trying to get a coveted role in a buzz filled drama being directed by his frequent costar Brian O' Halloran (of Clerks, Mallrats, etc.). First off, in true Kevin Smith fashion, every name actor in this movie is a cameo, including, oddly Kevin Smith. I actually thought based on the advertising that this movie was going to be an interesting, fictionalized retelling of their long time friendship and working relationship. It's not. This is strictly a vehicle for Mewes and, as an actor, the guy actually shows surprising range and ability. But as a director he falls flat. This movie is slapstick as hell sometimes but gets oddly dark in other places and Mewes cannot handle the tonal shifts at all. Honestly, by the end, I was more than ready for the thing to be over and a little surprised by how real the movie gets in some places, (Smith and Mewes get into a screaming match over the latter's well publicized struggles with addiction) followed by something really silly like Mewes going to murder a professional rival with a nail. Along the way. one of the guys who wrote the movie keeps popping up as an annoying and unfunny idiot detective determined to bring Mewes down. Tough guy character actor Vinnie Jones (The Midnight Meat Train, Snatch) gets blamed for his crimes at one point, and the late Stan Lee wonders into one scene for a title drop moment. I laughed a few times but the flick just isn't that good. I think with better writing and direction Jason Mewes actually could turn in a really solid performance but this isn't the movie that will break him through. Although he may get more work off it in the future.
