An Evening with Kevin Smith 2 : Evening Harder (DVD)

An Evening with Kevin Smith 2 : Evening Harder (DVD)
Caffeinated Clint

The man can talk, and not just warble on about anything, but also grip you with the most insane – usually a bit uncouth – of stories. In many ways, the Q&A’S that the filmmaker – famous for his juvenile but beloved comedies like “Clerks” and “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” – conducts (and accordingly records for these DVDs) are more entertaining than his movies. They really are. You seriously hate to take a toilet break from it. And the crowd loves him. They’ll line up until their legs give up to ask the man a question.


Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes

What I would’ve given to have Kevin Smith in my Grade 6 class. Heck, I would’ve actually have made a stronger effort to get to school on time then, because there would be no way I’d be missing out on ‘show and tell’, especially if Smith was doing the yabbering.

The man can talk, and not just warble on about anything, but also grip you with the most insane – usually a bit uncouth – of stories. In many ways, the Q&A’S that the filmmaker – famous for his juvenile but beloved comedies like “Clerks” and “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” – conducts (and accordingly records for these DVDs) are more entertaining than his movies. They really are. You seriously hate to take a toilet break from it. And the crowd loves him. They’ll line up until their legs give up to ask the man a question.

In an “Evening with Kevin Smith 2: Evening Harder”, Smith travels to both England and Canada to speak to a theatre-full of chronic fans. Characteristically, he’s on stage for about two hours at both venues, but only manages to fit in about six or seven questions – because each of his answers is the equivalent of a tax return. He loves to blather…. But how we love to listen to it. Smith is genuinely funny, and for the most part, seems to also know what he’s talking about. He may across as brash and a bit haughty at times, but he’s obviously quite an intelligent fellow.

This time, he answers questions on such topics as: His favourite and least favourite movies of the year (deciding to dissect all of friend, Ben Affleck’s movies), whether there’s any truth to the rumours that he’s involved in a “Star Wars” TV series (which sets him off on a tangent about the internet), he tells the London crowd about the time he came to blows with a newspaper covering the ‘Jersey Girl’ premiere, and also, much to her apparent abhor, speaks about the “night swimming” that he and his wife get up to in the bedroom. On both occasions, his regular cinematic cohort Jason ‘Jay’ Mewes, who does little but mumble and ogle the women in the audience – yet the audience still go crazy for him, joins him on stage.

Hours and hours of side-splitting entertainment – encompassing a couple of good extras, including a piece where Jason Mewes hits the streets to try his ‘come on’ lines on the locals – for the Jay & Silent Bob fans.
