        I didn't know it at the time, but watching Mallrats on VHS as a kid was my first foray into View Askew, but it wasn't until Dogma that I realised there was something bigger and better I could latch on to with Kevin Smith at the helm.

        Kevin Smith's religious epic Dogma is a fun and entertaining film that's irreverently hilarious. When two cast out angels discover a loophole that will allow them to re-enter Heaven a disillusioned Catholic is called upon to stop them. An impressive cast has been assembled, and includes Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Alan Rickman, George Carlin, and Chris Rock. Additionally, Smith's writing is pretty sharp, with some witty dialog and clever humor. However, his directing is still rather weak, and the editing is sloppy. Dogma is Kevin Smith's most ambition film yet, and despite the rough edges he succeeds at delivering an incredibly funny adventure.

        [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img] I love Kevin Smith correction I admire him, but this is without any doubt Kevin Smith's worst film. Dogma is overlong, very annoying and despite the usually comedic cast was just plain dull. I think the characters of Jay and Silent Bob are hilarious but the film around them just didn't work. The movie is a sucker for product placement and is essentialy a huge series of recycled jokes. Smith deserves praise for small pieces of inspired black comedy and a radical attempt at being funny without being offensive but it doesn't have any taste or any consistent tone. For about half of the movie it's got characters explaining stuff to the other characters about the plot. There's too much unfunny dialogue and consequently it's just plain boring and not funny at all. I laughed out loud once, and that was seeing Silent Bob fight for a dance at a strip club but apart from that I was very very bored.

        It's really hard to satire religion yet stay respectful of the religion. But this film does it. Kevin Smith is one of my favorite comedic writter/directors of our time and this film is a perfect example of his art. This is one of the only films I can stand Ben Affleck. Matt Damon should do more comedies like these. And for God sake please make another Jay & Silent Bob film please!!!
