Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back is a comedy/road movie directed by Kevin Smith and released in 2001. It is a surprisingly humorous story about two stoner guys who travel all the way from Jersey to Hollywood to stop the production of a movie based on their lives. During this trip they get into different funny situations, encounter many hilarious characters and even manage to get involved into a serious robbery. The movie is famous for having many cameos by popular movie people, actors and comedians.
Both Jay and Silent Bob sell and smoke weed in New Jersey and actually appear in many other Kevin Smith movies. This whole concept is called View Askewniverse (after the name of the studios – View Askew) and includes movies like – Clerks 1 and 2, Chasing Amy and Dogma. Kevin Smith is well known for a positive role of marijuana in his movies, so most of his characters smoke pot and have no moral or health issues with it. In Dogma, a movie playing on various religious themes, Jay and Silent Bob even manage to get an angel high.
