    How did this one sneak past me
    This was freaking brilliant. Meta but in a way that really works if you follow Kevin Smith and funny at the same time it's ultimately a bit of a bizarre mixup of tragic and uplifting. I think it's the best movie one could see in their middle years as it addresses regrets and losses one has begun to more deeply understand. It still has the raunchy irreverent flavor I expected but it's like it was polished a bit with a more subtle maturity. Definitely one I'll watch again but not one I'll rewatch constantly. It's a movie with surprising depth. The humor is more confined than many of Smiths films but no less effective. Now it seems I have to fill 600 characters while avoiding spoilers... .. I've enjoyed pretty much everything Smith has made but this one is my favorite, probably in my top three movies hands-down. Looking forward to his next film.

    An hour and a half of nothing to say.
    If you don't have an idea for a movie, why make one? I'm a HUGE fan of Clerks and some of Kevin Smith's other stuff, but this is just painful fan service, memberberries, nostalgia for nostalgia's sake. "Hey, remember when we made that good movie? Yeah, that was awesome" is NOT another movie!

    And apparently Rosario Dawson has made a deal with the Devil so that she doesn't age, whereas everybody else from the original cast looks like the Crypt Keeper. Granted, she's about 10 years younger than the rest, but the difference is much greater than what a decade should look like.

    I get that Kevin Smith was dealing with his own heart attack, but Lisa Spoonauer actually died, years ago. If anything should have inspired him to write something deep, retrospective, and philosophical, it should have been that. But Kevin Smith has never seemed like too great a person to me.
