Kevin Smith's first film not to feature cameos from the
characters Jay & Silent Bob seems to prove how much the writer-director relies on "stoner humour".
Starring Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez when they were in a
relationship together and fresh off the set of the terrible Gigli (qv) wasn't the smartest casting decision either.
Affleck plays a PR man who struggles to raise his daughter
alone following the death of her mother, and, after having a breakdown where he criticises one of his clients, is fired from his firm.
Several years pass and he develops a relationship with the
sexually liberal Liv Tyler, who inspires him to return to a career he once loved.
This film is by far one of the weakest films from Kevin Smith,
lacking memorable characters or dialogue which made his previous films so fun to watch. Ben Affleck doesn't help either, with a half-arsed performance and very little chemistry with either of his
romantic interests. Still, at least it's better than Gigli.
