OK, let's be real clear. When I say "Kevin Smith movies" I mean the originals - Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma, and Chasing Amy. Sure, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, Clerks II, and Zack and Miri Make a Porno might also qualify as "Kevin Smith movies" - but I have to draw a line in the sand. The originals have shaped me in ways I cannot describe. There was a time in college where we had no cable TV, so all Charity (my roommate for 3 years) and I did was watch these movies over and over again. I know pretty much every line from each movie. I have been to the Secret Stash retail store in Redbank New Jersey. I have been to the Quick Stop. I have been to the boardwalk at Asbury Park to play skeeball. I have seen Monmouth Community College from the road. If you haven't seen these movies, I suggest you stop what you are doing and go watch them. Unless you have no sense of humor. Then forget it.
