Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001) is a film written by, directed by and starring Kevin Smith, the fifth to be set in his View Askewniverse, a growing collection of characters and settings that developed out of his cult favorite Clerks. While centered around the two title characters, portrayed by Jason Mewes and Smith, the film features a variety of celebrity cameos, such as Ben Affleck, Jason Lee, Matt Damon, Carrie Fisher, Wes Craven, Joey Lauren Adams, Jeff Anderson, Scott Mosier, Brian O'Halloran, Will Ferrell, Jon Stewart, Shannon Elizabeth, Ali Larter, Mark Hamill, Chris Rock, Eliza Dushku, Seann William Scott, Marc Blucas, Alanis Morissette, Jason Biggs, Diedrich Bader, Tracy Morgan, Shannen Doherty and George Carlin. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back is a prime example of the phenomenon of "fanservice" - while maintaining its own plot, the movie has nearly constant in-jokes referencing Smith's previous four films.
