On the way, they befriend an animal liberation group called S.A.A.C. (Students Against Animal Cruelty), consisting of four women and one man they picked up for the cause. It is revealed that the organization is a front; the man (Seann William Scott) is a patsy, intended as a diversion by freeing an orangutan from an animal testing laboratory while the girls rob a diamond depository nearby. Jay cons the man into embarrassing himself in order to get closer to Justice (Shannon Elizabeth), the most compassionate of the women and the one with whom he finds himself smitten.

Quickly afterwards Federal Wildlife Marshall Willenholly shows up at the scene, claiming to have jurisdiction because "somebody let out all these animals". He is informed that all the animals have been recovered except for an orangutan, which he claims to be "the most dangerous animal known to man".


Confronting Jay and Silent Bob at a diner and issuing a threat to open fire, Jay and Silent Bob dresses the orangutan as a child and walks out, claiming it to be their "love child" and threatening to go back to their liberal minded city with tales of prejudice and bigotry from Utah. Marshal Willenholly thinks about the political repercussions and lets them to go the amazement of the sheriff.


Realizing the child to be the orangutan in disguise, the officers quickly chase them into a sewer system, where both Jay and Silent Bob, as well as Marshal Willenholly arrive at a fall off point of a giant dam. The orangutan grabs Jay and Silent Bob and pulls them down. Marshal Willenholly amazed at how far down a fall it is decides to follow them by jumping off, only to realize going down that the orangutan (Suzanne) is hanging on a pipe extruding from the dam while holding Jay and Silent Bob.


Escaping the law, Jay and Silent Bob once again return to their quest to reach Hollywood only to have Suzanne taken by a Hollywood animal acting agency car. Now on a quest to get their ape back and to clear their names, the two once again embark to Hollywood.

Suzanne beats both of them up effortlessly and Jay and Silent Bob assume the roles of their characters, Bluntman and Chronic. Being forced into their costumes and thrown on stage, they must engage in a duel with Cock-Knocker (Mark Hamill), eventually taking a break from the scene when Willenholly interrupts to capture Jay and Silent Bob.

Trivia

  • The toddler Silent Bob was played by Kevin Smith's daughter, Harley Quinn Smith. She would later play the little girl in the window in Clerks II.
  • The "Got Nails?" poster in front of the Quick-Stop is also shown in many of Kevin Smith's other movies, such as Dogma (when Silent Bob throws the angels out of the train) and Clerks II.
  • Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have a cameo as the stars in a fictional sequel to their 1997 breakout feature Good Will Hunting (entitled "Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season"). Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier were the executive producers of Good Will Hunting, which Smith helped Damon and Affleck get to the head of Miramax Films; playing themselves, the actors hint that their appearance in this film is a "payback" venture, then break the fourth wall. Good Will Hunting director Gus Van Sant has a cameo as the director of its sequel.
  • In the movie, Daredevil can be seen rolling out of the way as Jay and Bob make their escape following the "Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season" scene, and right before they fly by a giant poster advertising a fictional movie starring Ben Affleck ("Moonraper," a parody of the James Bond film Moonraker). Ben Affleck would later play Daredevil in the movie based on the character, with director Kevin Smith in a minor part. Smith had also previously written for the comic book in which Affleck wrote an introduction to in the collection of his run.
  • While in Hollywood, Jay and Silent Bob stumble onto the set of a fictional fourth installment in the Scream series (featuring Mallrats star Shannen Doherty as the female victim). Jay and Silent Bob had a cameo (on a Hollywood movie set lot, no less) in Scream 3; Scream director Wes Craven has a cameo as the director of the movie. Craven had started the friendly homage to Smith's work in the first Scream film, where VHS copies and posters of Clerks could be seen in the background of several scenes. In the Scream spoof, Doherty is surprised that a monkey is playing the masked killer; Wes Craven has never revealed who the killer is.
  • This was Kevin Smith's most heavily edited movie. Many cameo scenes by celebrities were cut, as were most of the travel scenes. An entire lesbian sub-plot to the diamond gang was deleted, and a running gag about "ass cock".
  • The police officer arresting Jay and Silent Bob at the Quick Stop is played by Ernie O'Donnell, who played "Rick Derris" in Clerks. and a hockey fan in Chasing Amy.
  • During the shootout between jewel thieves and the Federal Wild Life Marshall (Will Ferrell) in the studio, their guns are in the position that empty guns are in (the slide locked back), but they still fire several shots.

  • This movie featured the word "fuck" 248 times.
  • Heather Graham was originally offered Shannon Elizabeth's role, but she turned it down because she couldn't figure out why her character would fall in love with Jay. Smith responded with "Why did your character fall in love with Austin Powers?".[1]
  • Ben Affleck makes a statement about himself while playing as Holden McNeil saying "They normally give the parts to some pretty boys like Ben Affleck or Matt Damon, although Ben Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms" . Ben Affleck would then go on to play himself later on in the film on a fake set with Matt Damon filming the fictional Good Will Hunting 2 .
  • Shannon Elizabeth plays Justice in the film, but Jason Biggs later has a conversation with Jay about being on set with Elizabeth during American Pie with Jay saying "Hey did you ever get to third base with that Russian Chick?" and with Jason Biggs replying with "Oh you mean Shannon?..... no" then with Jay saying "Oh man she was so hot, If I were you I would have been all like..." then it goes on with Jay pretending to have sex with an imaginary Shannon.
  • John Willyung, who appeared in Chasing Amy as "Cohee London" and in a deleted scene from Clerks. appears as a customer outside the Quick Stop (during the 1970s).
  • Dan Etheridge, who first appeared in Dogma and voiced "Plug" (Leonardo Leonardo's assistant in Clerks: The Animated Series), appears as a police officer. Another officer is played by Robert "Ratface" Holtzman, a longtime Smith collaborator who also appeared as a police officer in Dogma.
  • At a screening in Austin, Richard Linklater told Smith that Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was his greatest achievement.
  • In a nod to the first live action Scooby-Doo film, (which had yet to be released when Strike Back premiered) Jay and Silent Bob spend time with the characters, although they are not named as such in the film. "Redhead Beauty" is played by Carmen Lee (who had appeared in a poster in Mallrats and a cameo in Chasing Amy) and was then the wife of Jason Lee; "The Dude" is played by Matthew James, while "Bookish Girl" is portrayed by Jane Silvia. The CGI-enhanced "Scooby" is voiced by Mark Hamill, who appears later in the film as himself portraying "Cock-knocker" in the Bluntman and Chronic movie.

In the Scooby-Doo movie, Freddy is played by Gellar's real-life husband, Freddie Prinze Jr., while Gellar plays Daphne. As for the other characters of the crew, "Shaggy" is played by Matthew Lillard and "Velma" by Linda Cardellini.
  • Jason Lee plays two roles in the movie --- his character in Mallrats, Brodie Bruce; and Banky Edwards, his character from Chasing Amy. Ben Affleck plays both himself and "Holden McNeil", his character from Chasing Amy. Additionally, the voice on the other end of the walkie-talkie when a Hollywood security guard (Diedrich Bader) is reporting Jay and Silent Bob's capture belongs to Affleck.
  • The diner where Jay and Silent Bob take their stolen orangutan is named the "Arena Diner"; after the classic Star Trek episode that was filmed in the same location.

  • Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was originally slated to be released on August 10, 2001. Once it was announced that American Pie 2 would be released on this same date, Smith pushed the movie's release back to August 24, fearing competition from the popular franchise. American Pie 2 went on to win the Number 1 slot at the box office over the weekend following the premiere of Strike Back, which itself opened in 3rd place (Rush Hour 2 was in second place).
  • The Bloodhound Gang song "Jackass" was originally supposed to be included in American Pie 2, but Smith seized the rights when Pie producers passed.
  • In the closing scene of the movie, just before God closes the book on the Askewniverse, you can see a red bookmark marking the "The End" page, and this page is actually somewhere in the middle of the book instead of at the back. According to Smith's commentary on the Clerks 2 DVD, although he had decided to retire Jay and Silent Bob because of Mewes' drug problems, he had always considered the idea of "revisiting" the Askewniverse characters at a later date.
  • Holden McNeils computer is a G4 Cube.
  • When they reach the dam, Jay says " Whole fucking world's against us dude, swear to God." This is the same line he uses in Dogma in the bar after Azreal is killed.
  • When filming Bluntman & Chronic Movie, Chaka Luther King (Chris Rock) says "Man, this movie is gonna make House Party look like House Party 2." and Assistant Director played by Joseph D.

  • Jason Mewes attended rehab prior to making this movie, when Kevin Smith made him. He still wanted to do drugs and not being able to he turned to drinking very heavily during the filming of the movie. Smith said every night Mewes got really hammered after shooting. One night Mosier and Smith wrapped Mewes early, telling him that they might need him back. They did call him back and he came back heavily inebriated. When Mosier was handing out schedules for the next day he remarked, "Be here at six and try to be sober." not in a derrogetory sense but a joking style common for Mosier. Jason Mewes reportedly got really angry and started yelling at Mosier, almost culminating in a fight between the two. This came as a shock to the laid back Mosier and Mewes now denies remembering the event.

Clerks. (1994)

  • Clerks. characters Dante Hicks (Brian O'Halloran), Randal Graves (Jeff Anderson), and Willam Black (Scott Mosier) make appearances, as do both Clerks. filming locations: the RST Video Store and Quick Stop convenience store in Leonardo, New Jersey. Smith filmed the scenes involving these characters last, feeling it was an appropriate way to end the series: by closing the filming with the locations and characters responsible for creating the franchise.
  • 37, a number first popularized in Clerks. (the number of men on whom Dante's girlfriend Veronica had performed oral sex), makes several appearances in the film: the jewel thieves celebrate their 37th victory, Justice's (Shannon Elizabeth) prison jumpsuit number is "3737," and the scene in the Bluntman and Chronic movie filmed is Scene 37.
  • At the Quick Stop, a customer asks Dante, "Are you even supposed to be here today?" to which Dante replies, "Don't get me started." This is a reference to the character's repeated line "I'm not even supposed to be here today!" from Clerks., which Dante will go on to say in its entirety during Jay's dream sequence later on in Strike Back.
  • When looking at the Bluntman and Chronic marquee at the movie theater, Scott Mosier's "Willam Black" character remarks, "That's beautiful, man," a repeated line of his in Clerks.
  • Jay wears a t-shirt featuring "Olaf" (John Henry Westhead) singing "Berserker", a repeated scene in Clerks. Additionally, he wears an overshirt with "Quick Stop Groceries" on its front pocket.
  • The Quick Stop's shutter's are closed and has a sign made out of a sheet saying "I assure you we are open," just like in Clerks.
  • Randall wears the same hockey jersey that he wears while playing hockey in Clerks.
  • When Marshal Wilenholly tell Jay and Silent Bob to drop to their knees, Jay exclaims "Great, he's lining us up like circus seals." Circus seals was a line used in Clerks.

Clerks: The Animated Series (2000)

  • In a deleted scene, Randal tells a confused Dante, "If you were funnier than that, ABC would have never canceled us," a reference to ABC's abrupt cancellation of the series. The line is featured in early previews of the movie.
  • Another deleted scene features "the kid in the helmet," who was also seen in episode 5 of the series and mentioned in its third episode; neither made it to air.
  • When Justice asks Jay and Silent Bob to steal an orangutan from a laboratory for her, Jay responds, "Sure, we steal monkeys all the time!". In episode 3 of the animated series, Jay and Silent Bob steal a monkey so they can teach it how to smoke.
  • The disclaimer preceding the series' second episode mentions that the producers endorse no celebrities, "except for Ben Affleck, pre-'Reindeer Games'". On the set of "Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season", Matt Damon reminds Affleck that he starred in Reindeer Games.
  • When exiting the theater showing the Bluntman and Chronic movie at the end, Hooper X refers to it being "one big gay joke," saying it was comparable to "watching Batman and Robin again." In the 4th episode of the series (the first episode broadcast), Randal demands that Joel Schumacher refund him his money, stating, "Man, Batman and Robin was so gay!". In the last episode of the series (which never aired), Jay and Silent Bob take over drawing the cartoon and make it one big gay joke.
  • Jay tells the two kids in the beginning that Dante and Randal got married. In Episode 2 of Clerks: The Animated Series, Dante mentions that they were going to become priests, but accidentally got married.

Mallrats (1995)

  • In addition to the reappearance of Jason Lee's Mallrats character Brodie Bruce, popular View Askew characters Walt "the Fanboy" Grover (Walt Flanagan) and Steve-Dave (Bryan Johnson) are seen exiting the theater showing Bluntman and Chronic at the end of the film. These characters made their first appearance in Mallrats and went on to appear in Dogma, two episodes of Clerks: The Animated Series, a deleted scene from Chasing Amy, and several comic books based on the franchise. After Steve-Dave complains about the movie, Walt utters his perennial line, "Tell 'em Steve-Dave!" Steve-Dave responds by telling Walt to stop saying that.
  • As he did in Mallrats, Brodie Bruce references Burt Reynolds (with the term "Reynolds-style") and offers a chocolate covered pretzel to Jay and Silent Bob after shoving his hand up his ass (the "stink palm" move).
  • A magazine cover detailing Brodie's short-lived stint as guest host of The Tonight Show (including a still from the Mallrats scene that narrated this outcome in the epilogue) is seen on the wall of his comic book shop, with the headline "BRODIE BOLTS", indicating that Brodie voluntarily left show business for the comic shop.
  • The same retractable grappling hook used by Silent Bob to escape the security guards in Mallrats is again used by him and Jay to reach the roof of the research laboratory. The scene in Strike Back was edited to be almost identical to the scene in Mallrats.
  • Jay and Silent Bob spend most of the movie with an orangutan named Suzanne. This ape appeared at the end of Mallrats with Jay and Silent Bob and was worked into several comic book stories, some of which provide the plot of Strike Back.
  • Jay's line "snootchie bootchies" (which is repeated in Strikes Back when he assumes the "Chronic" character) was first spoken in Mallrats.
  • Renee Humphrey's character Trisha Jones makes an appearance at the end of Strike Back. Her character's sister, Chasing Amy's Alyssa Jones, remarks that the Bluntman and Chronic movie was "better than Mallrats".
  • Silent Bob uses "the Force" to obtain a weapon on the Bluntman and Chronic set, just as he thought he did at the end of Mallrats to retrieve a videotape.
  • Jay shouts "Flee Fat ass, Flee!!" as they run away from Willenholly. This is a reference to one of Jay's Mallrats lines, "Fly Fat ass, Fly!"
  • Brodie Bruce is wearing the exact same clothing that he wears in Mallrats and holds the same Dixie cup in his hand.
  • In Mallrats, Shannon Doherty's character runs into Willam Black and he says "Brenda?"( a reference to Doherty's role in Beverly Hills 90210). In a deleted scene, the Miramax security guard says the same thing before being called a dick, just as Willam was.

Chasing Amy (1997)

  • The Bluntman and Chronic comic book characters made their first appearance in Chasing Amy (again as the brainchild of characters Holden McNeil and Banky Edwards).
  • Alyssa Jones mentions that the comic book that Holden McNeil created about their relationship, Chasing Amy, would "never work as a movie." Ironically, Chasing Amy was the most critically acclaimed of Smith's films, receiving 3 1/2 stars from Leonard Maltin.
  • As in Chasing Amy, Banky Edwards' stance as a homosexual is insinuated within his reappearance in Strike Back's final scene. But in a deleted scene it is confirmed that Banky is in fact gay.
  • The apartment building in which Holden lives has the word "Potzer's" on the side, a reference to characters referring to one another as "Potzer" throughout Chasing Amy.
  • When Silent Bob gestures in an effort to tell Jay that Susanne the orangutan has been kidnapped, Jay becomes increasingly frustrated with his partner's refusal to speak, remarking "You can always tell that stupid Amy story all the time..." In Chasing Amy, Silent Bob compared Holden's relationship issues with his own in a long-winded story involving an "Amy."
  • When Holden answers the door to see Jay and Silent Bob waiting for him, he remarks "Look at these morose motherfuckers right here; smells like someone shit in their cereal, bungggg!", the same line Jay greeted Holden with in Chasing Amy.
  • The music created by Soul Asylum's Dave Pirner for the opening scene of Chasing Amy is re-used when introducing Holden McNeil. Since a soundtrack for Chasing Amy was never released, the music is included in its entirety on the Strike Back soundtrack.
  • The Bluntman and Chronic character "Cock-knocker" was a term that originated in Chasing Amy, when Banky calls an unruly comic convention attendee by the term.
  • When Banky Edwards introduces himself as Bluntman and Chronic's inker", Chaka Luther King (Chris Rock) refers to him as a tracer, much to the former character's chagrin. This references an opening scene in Chasing Amy, in which Banky attempts to start a fight after being called a "tracer".
  • The Quick Stop appears to sell Nails brand cigarettes. The fictional tobacco brand first appeared in Chasing Amy, seen on Holden's and Alyssa's Zippo-type lighters.
  • Holden's reference to dating a lesbian during the news broadcast discussing the C.L.I.T, referring to his former girlfriend, Alyssa Jones (Joey Lauren Adams).
  • A deleted scene featured the return of the Tracer character (Scott Mosier) from Amy.

Dogma (1999)

  • Jay mentions that Miramax only made classy movies like The Piano and The Crying Game. In Dogma, when God didn't speak, he said, "What is this, The Piano?" Interestingly, the DVD rights to both films are owned by Lions Gate Entertainment, which was theatrical distributor of Dogma.
  • Jay mentions that the songs of Morris Day and The Time were written by "God herself." In Dogma, God appears as a woman.
  • When they reach the dam, Jay says " Whole fucking world's against us dude, swear to God." This is the same line he uses in Dogma in the bar after Azrael is killed.
  • Alanis Morissette reprises her role as God after the closing credits of Strike Back, closing a giant book festooned with the View Askew logo.
  • In this movie Jay and Silent Bob have trouble taking the bus, stating "didn't we used to take that shit to school for free?" In Dogma, they state that they "caught a bus" to get to that film's location. As was also the case in Dogma, the bus they attempt to board is of the fictional Derris variety (whose name is a reference to Ernie O'Donnell's Rick Derris character from Clerks.).
  • When the nun picks Jay and Silent Bob up hitchhiking, a Buddy Christ statue can be seen on her dashboard, a reference to the Catholic Church's newest depiction of Jesus Christ in Dogma. Furthermore, the Buddy Christ is facing the road, a reference to an old George Carlin comedy sketch[citation needed]. This dashboard icon is available for purchase at Smith's Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash stores in Red Bank, New Jersey and Westwood, California. Furthermore, prior to being picked up by the nun, Jay and Bob encounter another hitchhiker, played by Carlin. Carlin also portrayed Cardinal Glick in Dogma.
  • Jay and Silent Bob eat at a Mooby's restaurant; they, along with Bethany (Linda Fiorentino) and Rufus (Chris Rock), ate at a Mooby's restaurant in Dogma, the film that introduced the fictitious franchise. The restaurant would go on to become the setting for Clerks II in 2006. An actor playing a live-action version of Mooby is seen later on in the film in Hollywood.
  • In Dogma, Jay mentions that, in John Hughes' 1980s movies, "Judd Nelson was harsh." Nelson makes a cameo in this film as a sheriff who takes a shot at Silent Bob's backside.
  • On the set of "Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season", Matt Damon mentions that Ben Affleck talked him into doing Dogma. Affleck also appeared at the beginning of this movie as Holden McNeil.
