This movie was okay. As a whole, I found it a bit loose and unorganized. On the other hand, there were some pretty good lines and scenes. Unfortunately, the ending was a bit plain. Maybe I'll have to watch it again some time.


The Deleted Scenes were illuminating. For example, the award Zack comes back from the reunion with is explained. It shows them cleaning out the storage space for the sound studio. I think a lot of the deleted scenes would have made the film better. There's a whole 94 minutes of deleted (actually there's some alternate and extended scenes) scenes. Though 20 of those minutes is "Brandon and Bobby Make a Testimonial."


People:
Jason Mewes as a character other than Jay.
Jeff Anderson from Clerks. (1994), Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001), and Clerks II (2006) as a character other than Randal Graves.
Tyler Labine, the drunk guy, looked familiar. He's in Dead Last and Reaper.
Craig Robinson looked familiar. He's from The Office.
Bobby Long is played by Brandon Routh who was in Superman Returns (2006).


Credits:
A scene interrupts the credits which shows that they have created a company making pornos for couples.
