Trivia / Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back

  • Acting for Two: Jason Lee reprises his roles as Brodie (Mallrats) and Banky (Chasing Amy), while Ben Affleck plays both Holden McNeil (from Chasing Amy) and, amusingly enough, himself.
  • Actor Allusion: Mark Hamill has a lightbongsaber battle, and loses his hand. "Not again." Jay also asks Jason Biggs if he got to third base with "that Russian chick" from American Pie who was played by Shannon Elizabeth, Jay's love interest here. Many, many other examples.
    • Also for the first time ever Mark Hamill performs his famous "Joker Voice" on-camera, and it is glorious.
      • Back to the first Mark Hamill example:
      "Don't fuck with the Jedi master, son."
    • Retroactively done with Will Ferrell and his character's name, Marshal Willenholly. Guess who plays Marshall in the 2009 Land of the Lost big-screen adaptation.
    • Sissy tells Justice to "bring it on" before they fight.
  • Billing Displacement: Jason Mewes is billed fifth on the poster and Kevin Smith isn't billed at all, despite the fact that they are the stars of the movie.
    • In fairness the six names on the poster are in alphabetical order by last name, and Smith would be the seventh. Also, as he is the writer/director, (a) his name is on the poster in that regard, (b) it could be modesty, and (c) it might be the joke—that Jay and Silent Bob's actors can't even get top billing in their own movie. Also, he may be one of the two title characters, but he has the fewest speaking lines of the seven.
  • Defictionalization: Moviepoopshoot.com was live for a while, and posted new content after the movie's run. It was later Quick Stop Entertainment, tying in with the c-store of the narrative of the saga (it's now called Fred Entertainment and is owned by Ken Plume, editor in chief of the former Quick Stop Entertainment). Brodie's comic shop is actually Kevin Smith's, in Red Bank, New Jersey.
    • The Russian website kino-govno.com borrows its name from the Russian Woolseyism-laden translation's rendition of Moviepoopshoot.com (the title literally means "film-shit.com"). The site's creators are self-confessed huge fans of Kevin Smith.
  • Doing It For The Fans: Kevin Smith has gone on record saying the movie is a love letter to the fans after all the years of support for his work, which is why he tried to work in as many references to all previous films he could and centered the entire movie around Jay and Silent Bob in the first place.
  • Fandom Nod: More like Hatedom nod. The poster to whom Jay makes his epic threat listed under Cut His Heart Out with a Spoon is named "Magnolia Fan," after a user on Kevin Smith's website that started a massive Flame War over Smith's negative review of that film.
  • Mutually Fictional: The duo stumbles upon the the filming of a Scream movie. The first movie in the series had a poster for Clerks., a movie in the same continuity as Jay and Silent Bob. And yet, Jay and Silent Bob had appeared in Scream 3 as themselves taking a tour of the Show Within a Show Slash.
    • Subtler is Matt Damon referencing Dogma as a film that he and Ben Affleck were in, even though the events of that film happened to characters within this one.
  • Production Posse: Since this was going to be the last View Askewniverse film, Kevin Smith got pretty much everyone who had even a minor role in the previous films to come back and at least make a cameo.
  • Those Two Actors: Lampshaded with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.
    Matt: Let's remember who talked who into doing this shit in the first place. Talking me into Dogma was one thing, but this...
    Ben: Hey look, I'm sorry I dragged you away from whatever-gay-serial-killers-who-ride-horses-and-like-to-play-golf-touchy-feely-picture you're supposed to be doing this week.
    Matt: I take it you haven't seen Forces of Nature?
    Ben: You're like a child. What've I been telling you? You gotta do the safe picture. Then you can do the art picture. But then sometimes you gotta do the payback picture because your friend says you owe him.
    (Aside Glance)
    Ben: And sometimes, you have to go back to the well.
    Matt: And sometimes, you do Reindeer Games.
    Ben: See, that's just mean.
  • What Could Have Been: Kevin Smith had originally pegged Howard Shore, composer for his previous film, to do the score for this film, but Shore got caught up in the The Lord of the Rings. Then Smith remembered how much he enjoyed working with James L. Vendable, composer for Clerks: The Animated Series and thought "Well, this is basically a live-action cartoon..."
