The two main characters of the Jay and Ailent Bob movies are long-haired weed dealers and lovers. Jay is a long-time weed dealer who made his name in the movies Clerks and Mallrats, and Bob, a non-stop talker. Their rocky relationship results in an impromptu road trip to Hollywood, where they find out the truth behind the alleged conspiracy.
The first film to star the duo was Clerks, released in 1994. It is set one day after Mallrats and features Jay and Silent Bob loitering outside a Quick Stop. Jay enters the store to steal food and powdered sugar, while Silent Bob deals pot to Willam Black. The two men also get into an argument when Jay and Silent Bob deal pot to a customer named Willam Black. Dante Hicks plays the quick-stop clerk. Silent Bob’s cousin runs a heavy metal band, Olaf, and is searching for a gig in New York City.
Bluntman and Chronic were comic book characters based on Jay and Silent Bob, but they didn’t receive their own solo movies. They did appear in the 2001 film Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back, which revolved around the title duo trying to prevent the Bluntman and Chronic from having a movie made about them. The movie also featured Jason Biggs and James Van Der Beek as Bluntman and Chronic, and featured a couple of actors dressed as the characters.
The film Chasing Amy is Kevin Smith’s best movie and one with the least screen time for the Jay and Silent Bob. In this movie, the duo meet Holden and his former lover, Amy. In the ensuing relationship, Holden realizes that his life is no longer happy. As his relationship with Amy goes down the drain, he turns to Silent Bob for help. In the film, he begins to question whether he’s capable of love.
The third film in the series, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, is the latest installment of the franchise. It continues the antics of Bluntman & Chronic, who have accidentally signed away the rights to their first two films. The film also features Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. This film is a classic, but the sequel to Chasing Amy is a better choice for younger audiences.
Apart from the four films, Jay and Silent Bob have appeared in ten different media. Their first appearance in the 1994 movie Clerks was their biggest breakthrough. They went on to star in the sequel, Chasing Amy, and Clerks II. The latest movie in the franchise, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, also stars Jay and Silent Bob in a short animated series. Jay and Silent Bob movies are a must-see for fans of comedy films.
