Jersey Girl

April 6, 2004 - reviews

Were it not for the eventual cameo by Jason Lee and Matt Damon, one could easily forget that one was watching a Kevin Smith movie. This is a warm and funny film about the relationship between a young girl and her widowed father. Has Smith gone Hollywood? Has he gone mainstream? I have to say I was more than a little disappointed that the obligatory cameo by “Jay and Silent Bob” was missing from this one (perhaps it’s a deleted scene on the DVD?). Ben Affleck actually acts in this one, George Carlin is brilliant, and the supporting cast is excellent (especially Stephen Root — fire your agent, Stephen, you’re not working as often as you should be). So what if it’s a chick flick? Go see this movie.
