  Salon.com Arts & Entertainment | "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back"
Jay and Silent Bob are recurring characters in Smith's films, having appeared as amusingly low-key minor characters in each movie from "Clerks" to "Dogma," and "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" is, Smith claims, his fond farewell to the duo.
Jay is the verbose, thoughtlessly crude one; Silent Bob is the cranky one who (almost) never speaks up, the straight guy who more often than not responds to Jay's shenanigans with a cartoonishly cocked eyebrow.
In "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back," the two learn that the comic book based on their personalities has been sold to a major studio (that would be Miramax, the parent company of Dimension Films, which produced this movie -- the first of many, many thumpingly self-referential jokes).

 Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001): Jason Mewes, Kevin Smith, Jason Lee, Chris Rock - PopMatters Film Review
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back is a deliberate "hail and farewell" to Smith's first seven years of work, containing references to all his previous films, not a few returning characters, and an appropriately triumphant send-off for his cult heroes, Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith).
What makes Jay and Bob special to their fans and funny to casual observers (or folks in the middle like me) is how centered they are in their generation.
Jay and Silent Bob seems to be Smith's attempt to rid himself of the juvenilia that threw previous, more ambitious films off balance (think of the shit monster in Dogma, which was otherwise, I think, a serious attempt at making a spiritual film).

 DVD Review: Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
Jay's mom ominously intones, "what's the worst that could happen?" Then we dissolve to present day, where we find the adult Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) in front of the store with Jay singing a rap consisting entirely of the f-word.

Silent Bob made about $30 million, which may not sound like much, but considering that the movie was essentially a cult film meant as a form of love letter to Smith’s biggest fans, even that modest total seems surprisingly high.
Silent Bob clearly won’t be for everyone, but it remains a pretty funny and entertaining piece that works well upon rescreenings; it didn’t do much for me the first time, but I liked it a lot the second.

 DVD review of Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back - DVD Town
The characters Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith) are, of course, the now iconic drug-dealing slackers from Smith’sClerks,” “Mall Rats,” “Chasing Amy,” and “Dogma,” all of which get spoofed as the new film goes along.
The single most amusing thing I remember from “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” is their looking up all the people who wrote nasty things about them on the Net, going to their houses, and beating the crud out of them.
“Jay and Silent Bob” may have a lot of needlessly self-referential jokes, a lot of lame jokes, a lot of profane jokes, and lot of flat-out dumb jokes, but despite the potentially offensive nature of most of this material, it didn’t come across as offensive.

 SPLICEDwire | "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" review (2001) Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Ben Affleck, Jason Biggs, Joey ...
Jay and Silent Bob (played by Jason Mewes and Smith himself) are vulgar yet somehow endearing, dimwitted bakeheads and convenience store loiterers who have appeared in all five of Smith's New Jersey-based comedies, in which he frequently mixes base humor with surprising social insightfulness.
Jay and Bob unknowingly hitch a ride to Hollywood with a foursome of sexpot jewel thieves who plan to use them as fall guys for a diamond heist in Colorado.

 Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back | Movie Review | Entertainment Weekly
In the celebrated cult role of Jay, Mewes is one half of the cheerfully blasphemous revue team known as Jay and Silent Bob, who have had a role in every Kevin Smith film, from the no-budget ''Clerks'' to the comparatively deluxe Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
Silent Bob, as embodied by the portly, bearded, coolly anti-cool Smith himself, is basically a mute guy who just stands there, making the occasional hipster hand gesture.
Jay, by contrast, is a human cherry bomb, the most detonatingly funny in a long line of idiot-savant anti-achievers (Wayne and Garth, Bill and Ted, Beavis and Butt-head, etc.).

 Reviews - Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
Jay and Silent Bob are the two slackers that have been turning up in Kevin Smith films ever since his first highly acclaimed Indie film 'Clerks'.
Jay (Mewes) is a stream-of-consciousness kind of guy, spouting an unstoppable torrent of words (many unprintable) and Silent Bob (Smith himself) is the quiet and moody one, who when he does speak has something that everyone wants to hear.
The real Jay and Silent Bob are stunned by the news, then shattered to find out they are being badmouthed on the internet for selling their story and totally aggrieved to find that none of the Hollywood big bucks will be heading their way…

The connecting threads, apparently, are Jay and Silent Bob, who we met in Smith's first movie, "Clerks," where they were permanently stationed outside a convenience store, ostensibly pot dealers, more accurately waiting for something to happen.
"Jay and Silent Bob" will be seen as a self-indulgence by Kevin Smith to those outside the circle of his films--and by those within it as Kevin Smith's indulgence to them.
And Silent Bob finally arrives at the monologue we patiently await in every picture, and reveals himself to be as least as articulate as Chris Matthews.
