Kevin Smith Claps Back at “Fan” Who Called Jay & Silent Bob Reboot a Flop

Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes are still in the midst of the Reboot Roadshow, which is taking them across the country to screen Jay & Silent Bob Reboot. The movie has been fairly well-received, earning a 69% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes, which is pretty good for a stoner comedy that had a limited release. When it comes to the audience score, Smith's new movie is flying high with a whopping 94%. Overall, the movie has been playing to sold-out crowds on the tour, and Smith has been open about the money its been making along the way. Recently, Smith shared a positive review of the film, and someone took to the comments to say, "It was f***ing awful, beast of a self-indulgent flop. A F***ING EMBARRASSMENT OF A FILM. To think you wrote the classic Chasing Amy AND Clerks. Then became self-obsessed and scared of failure so started making trash." Here's what Smith had to say in response:

"You neglected to point out that #JayAndSilentBobReboot was shot completely in focus. And look at all this flopping. So much flopping...," Smith wrote with photos of sold out crowds.
