Wrapping up my Kevin Smith marathon with Jersey Girl, a movie that I think is unfairly badmouthed. Sure, it's riddled with cliches and thick with sentimentality and by-the-numbers plotting. It doesn't take a genius to figure out how the movie will play and end within the first 5 minutes of the film as it's something we have seen time and time again. I for one have seen this one a few times and I like it, in spite of everything surrounding the movie. It just sucks that this flick gets lumped into the whole Gigli-gate because of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez. For those that don't know...

Spoiler (hover to show)

As for the movie, I think it's a pretty decent family picture with a nice supporting cast with the likes of George Carlin, Jason Biggs, Stephen Root, Liv Tyler and newcomer, the adorable Raquel Castro, who steals every scene she is in. And there is a cool cameo from Will Smith that pays off the running joke surrounding his namesake the entire movie. Even though Jersey Girl does not take place in the View Askewniverse, that doesn't mean that Mr. Smith doesn't use his go-to actors to fill out some roles here. You can find Jason Lee, Matt Damon and Ernest O'Donnell here as well.

I own the movie, but I would say it's definitely worth a Rent, if not a Buy.

Knowing you, that statement is riddled with sarcasm. (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/fallingbricks.gif)
