Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is a 2019 American comedy film that serves as a sequel to both Clerks II and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Written, directed, and starring Kevin Smith, the movie follows the titular characters Jay and Silent Bob, two stoner friends who embark on a mission to prevent a reboot of the fictional movie Bluntman and Chronic, which is based on a comic book series they inspired.

The movie begins with Jay and Silent Bob, played by Smith and his longtime collaborator Jason Mewes, getting arrested for drug possession after being caught selling weed outside a convenience store. They are bailed out by their old friend and fellow stoner, Brodie Bruce (Jason Lee), who informs them that a reboot of Bluntman and Chronic is in the works and that they are not getting any money from the project.

Determined to stop the reboot from happening and to make some money of their own, Jay and Silent Bob set out on a cross-country trip to Hollywood. Along the way, they encounter a variety of characters from Smith's previous movies, including Ben Affleck as Holden McNeil, Shannon Elizabeth as Justice, and Joey Lauren Adams as Alyssa Jones.

As Jay and Silent Bob make their way to Hollywood, they encounter numerous obstacles and challenges, from a run-in with a racist border patrol agent to being kidnapped by a group of female animal rights activists. Despite their struggles, the duo continues to push forward, determined to prevent the Bluntman and Chronic reboot from destroying their reputations and livelihoods.

One of the highlights of the movie is its self-awareness and meta-commentary on Hollywood and the movie industry. Smith takes plenty of jabs at the current state of Hollywood, poking fun at reboots, sequels, and the corporate greed that often drives these types of projects. He also takes on the tendency of modern movies to rely on excessive amounts of special effects, and the way that social media has made it easier than ever for critics and fans to express their opinions about movies and actors.

The movie is also filled with cameos and references to Smith's previous works, making it a treat for longtime fans of his movies. In addition to the aforementioned actors, the movie features appearances by Rosario Dawson, Frankie Shaw, Justin Long, and many others. Even Stan Lee, who passed away before the movie's release, makes a posthumous cameo.

Overall, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is a goofy and irreverent comedy that should appeal to fans of Smith's previous movies. While some of the jokes and references may be lost on viewers who are not familiar with his work, the movie still manages to be an entertaining and fun romp that is well worth checking out. It may not be a groundbreaking masterpiece, but it is a fun and enjoyable movie that is sure to make you laugh.

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is a 2019 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 45 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.6 and a MetaScore of 46.
