This is where Kevin Smith is at his best. He’s great when he’s just bouncing off the audience talking about and saying whatever he wants. He really is a big geek living the dream and it’s nice to see and hear him talk about his life in the big time. He has no problem admitting he likes the money and doesn’t shy away from taking shots at himself or others.
If I have one problem with the Evening With series it’s that the good questions seem to have already been asked. With the second series, you don’t get a whole lot of piercing questions that give Kevin a chance to talk about something more interesting than Dora the Explorer. But that’s a credit to Kevin’s charm and likeability. Not everyone can talk for twenty minutes about a lame kids show and actually hold your attention.
Kevin Smith is a famous director that has huge Hollywood stars on speed dial. However, at no point in time during these two concerts do you get the feeling that he feels superior to anyone. He’s just a geek that had a cool idea and an opportunity and made the most of it. This DVD is a must for Kevin Smith fans, or anyone who’s regular job prevents them from staying up all night and talking with their friends at the local Perkins.
London Man on the Street Featurette (6:33): Jason Mewes travels around London and tries out his “up in them guts” pick up line. The line is horrible, but the reactions on the lovely British women is priceless.
There are also some Previews.
