Kevin Smith's Moose Jaws may resemble Spielberg's classic more than you know

12.31.2015

If you've been following Kevin Smith's career the past couple of years, you may have noticed that the man has been spending a lot of time up north. Way north. I'm talkin' Canada! His last picture, TUSK, was a horror/comedy hybrid that proved to be a bit of a mixed bag, but that hasn't dissauded Smith from following through with what he calls his True North trilogy. The second installment, YOGA HOSERS, is set to hit right after the new year. After that he'll close out this saga with MOOSE JAWS, which he's always peddled as JAWS but with a Moose. Sounds simple enough, right?

Well, it seems as if Smith may have been more literal with that description than we thought. In a recent Q&A at a comedy club, reddit user the_zipline_champion detailed some words that Smith said regarding the upcoming film, and even read a portion of the script to them. Check it out:

The script is a beat-for-beat remake of JAWS. The dialog and scenes are copied-and-pasted from Carl Gottlieb's original screenplay. The only difference from the scene Kevin read from (Quint scratching on the chalkboard) was that Jay and Silent Bob came in to draw a penis on said chalkboard.

I was excited to hear that Kevin Smith found a renewed sense of energy regarding filmmaking, and then I saw TUSK. Now, TUSK is not a terrible picture by any means, but I'm not sure it's exactly as out there as it needs to be in order to elicit some good entertainment. The flick had its moments though, and I'm curious to check out YOGA HOSERS. I'm just hoping that Smith brings it back around to something more genuine when it comes time for CLERKS III.

Kevin Smith's next, YOGA HOSERS, will hit select theaters on January 24, 2016.

Wait...

Does "mixed bag" mean "awful, brain-dead piece of shit pandered to by the good will of fans that liked the one decent movie he did 20 years ago"? If so I've been using it wrong.

I've seen all of Smith's movies except for Tusk, I'll get on that soon. I've enjoyed all his films, especially Red State. Still wondering whatever happened to his hockey movie that he was going to cast superstar comic, tranny-lover and all-around sweet boy James "Yimmy" Norton in a key role.

Keep On Going Kevin

Everyone shits on him on the internet and he goes on podcasts and laughs about it. He doesn't give a crap when it comes to all of the negativity. Dude is just doing stuff that makes him happy. If you hate it, why waste your time complaining about what he's doing? Good or bad he's one of the very few filmmakers out there that can be sitting around their house, have a stupid idea for a movie, write it, and then actually go and film it and see it hit theaters.

No one cares more about what random assholes on the internet say about him than Kevin Smith. He talks about it non-stop and has since basically the advent of the internet.

This looks fun.

Kevin Smith has always been about making the films that he likes and hoping others like them too.

I could not be any less excited or interested in Kevin Smith and his "how random and obscure of a film can I make?" Shtick.

Long past making good movies. Not every random idea you have on a podcast that gives you the weed giggles should be made into a film.
And you will never not see him pose in a picture without bugging his eyes out. Who told him this was a good look?

He's doing what inspires him. I don't see what the problem is.
