The story of a [[Creator/BenAffleck publicist]], named Ollie (Olliver)'s fantastic New York life. That is, until tragedy strikes and he has to live with his [[DeadpanSnarker dad]] in NewJersey with his daughter. Family fun ensues as he tries to cope, with the help of his [[GeorgeCarlin family]] and [[LivTyler friend(s)]]

If that description is too vague, here is what it says on the box: "Hollywood favorites Creator/BenAffleck (''{{Film/Daredevil}}'', ''{{Paycheck}}'', ''TheSumOfAllFears'') and LivTyler (''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' trilogy, ''{{Film/Armageddon}}'') shine in this heartwarming all-star comedy about a guy who thinks he's lost it all, only to discover he's got everything he needs! Ollie (Affleck) is a smooth and successful big-city publicist who has the life he's always wanted - until things take an unexpected turn and he finds himself an unemployed single father back living with his dad in the suburbs. But just when he thinks his life has hit rock bottom, a sexy, no-nonsense video store clerk (Tyler) enters his life and shows Ollie that sometimes you have to forget who thought you were and acknowledge what really makes you happy. Also starring JenniferLopez (''MaidInManhattan'') and Jason Biggs (''Film/AmericanPie'') - director Creator/KevinSmith (''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack'') has delivered another hit critics are calling one of the year's funniest!"

!!''Jersey Girl'' demonstrates the following tropes:
* BeleagueredAssistant: Ollie's assistant
* DeathByChildbirth: [[spoiler:Ollie's wife]]
* DidIJustSayThatOutLoud: The entire reason Ollie had to move back in with his dad.
* GrumpyOldMan: GeorgeCarlin
* InterruptedIntimacy: Ollie get caught by his daughter who switches roles with him, mirroring a previous scene involving his daughter.
* MagicalNegro: WillSmith's appearance (as himself) has shades of this.
* SwappedRoles : After Ollie's daughter catches him in the shower with the video store clerk.
* TakeThat: Many. Notably:
** In universe, Ollie delivers a massive one to WillSmith (just prior to the release of ''IndependenceDay'').
** ''{{Cats}}'' is apparently "the second worst thing to ever happen to New York."
* TheVerse: Averted. One of the reasons for this film's commercial failure was that it '''wasn't''' set in the ViewAskewniverse.
* WorldOfSnark: it ''is'' a KevinSmith film, after all.
