Comments: For everyone who went to see this movie basing their opinion on Ben's previous movie shame on you. Jersey Girl is a great movie. The cast is great and Kevin Smith is a wonderful director. I love Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Folks sometimes forget that we go to the movies to relax and forget our troubles. If I want to get educated or have someone lecture Me I will go back to school. I think people forget that sometimes and take everything way to seriously. We need more feel good movies that aren't preachy because if you want to be preached at you go to church and listen to your pastor.This is one of those feel good movies. Good Luck Ben and Kevin.
