Well folks, writer/director of Dogma, Kevin Smith, has grown up. A lot.
Jersey Girl is a classically constructed story of a high-power Manhattan publicist, Ollie (Ben Affleck) who gets married only to have his wife die in childbirth. He gets fired when he loses it at a press event for the Will Smith – and has to move back to Jersey to live with his dad.
I will be very interested to see what Smith’s fan base has to say about this film. Kevin Smith hasn’t sold out – he’s grown up.
