When a pair of fallen angels discover a loophole that means they could re-enter heaven, the last descendant of Christ and a motley assortment of supernatural helpers set out to stop them before they cause the end of all creation. Fair play to Kevin Smith for this brave attempt at a deconstruction of biblical mythology because it's quite a nice idea and obviously risked a backlash from the usual assortment of religious nutters. The problem however is that although he clearly did his homework and made sure he got all his facts straight, a lot of the material he used is lost on anyone who doesn't go to Catholic Bible class and so much of the script is spent explaining the stories and characters he is sending up. Unfortunately, if you have to explain why a joke is funny, that means it isn't …

Bartleby (Ben Affleck), a watcher, and Loki (Matt Damon), the former Angel of Death were exiled in Wisconsin and have plans of passing through the church in New Jersey. The voice of God Metatron (Alan Rickman) seeks the last person who can save the whole of existence. He appears infront of Bethany Sloane’s (Linda Fiorentino) bedroom. After conversing, she discovers that she is adied by 2 prophets Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewesand Kevin Smith), 13th apostle Rufus (Chris Rock) and a muse Serendipity(Salma Hayek). God (Alanis Morissette) rights everything that was wronged. Some quotes on the flick: Bartleby – “The lesson must be taught. All are accountable … even God.” Azreal – “It's a human construct! But true to his irresponsible nature, man won't own up to being its …

Now I am catholic, and most catolic believe that this movie is mean and offensive. I understand that but really I have to say this was funny as shit. To me i think everyone is in their A- game. Ben Affleck is funny, we see Matt Damon not being Serious than his other movie. Jay and silent Bob are once again another home run even though Silent Bob has maybe the least amount of words his says throughout this movie. The humor is hilarious like how Jesus is black and the not remenber thirtenth disciple is black too but isn't in the Bible or how god is actually a woman. All of this is actually hilarious and I defintely should say you should check it out. Now even though Already gave a rating to this review already but just for the hell it, give a much different rating out of 10.

Among Kevin's Smith's Best Movie, although all 6 of his viewaskewinverse movies are in my top movies list. Out of all of his films, this is second to to Clerks. It beat out the second Clerks film, which was surprising, because I underestimated this movie tremendously. But boy was i wrong. This is one of the funniest, smartest, and most original movie I've seen in a long time if not of all time(IMO).
An all star comedy deserves an allstar cast which benefits the movie. Jay And Silent Bob are back as usual, and better than ever. In a religious comedy, I'm surprised I learned so much about my own religion by watching it.
Definetly one of my favourites.
An absolute must see for Kevin Smith fans, and well, everyone.
Can't Be Missed.
FINAL SCORE :::: 89% ::::

Kevin Smith is a genius. He is a great director with the enthusiasm of a comic book junkie kid. He knows how to make things interesting, and how far across the line he can go before anyone complains. The cast is an allstar line up that anyone would be lucky to have one or two in a few films, but for him to get all of these people lined up for 1 film is just outstanding. Teaming up Affleck and Damon together again is great because they haven't been doing anything together since Good Will Hunting. Chris Rock is always funny, Alan Rickman is once again brilliant, former pro skater Jason Lee can pull off any part that Smith throws at him and it does it with style. Not to mention having George Carlin playing the Cardinal, which is hilarious because of his real life views on organized …
