Kevin Smith burst onto the filmmaking scene in 1994 with the Sundance-selected indie comedy Clerks. No one knew that this film was just the beginning of what would become the View Askewniverse, an interconnected universe where nearly all of Kevin Smith’s movies (Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back) would exist, allowing for the kind of references and characters crossovers that are now a staple of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It’s been over a decade since Kevin Smith got to play in his cinematic world, both as a filmmaker and as the second half of the stoner duo known as Jay and Silent Bob. But now he’s returned, both in front of the camera and behind it, with Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. The Kevin Smith many people fell in love with in high school has mostly returned to form with this latest installment of the View Askewniverse. The movie is a satisfying, nostalgic sequel/reboot that delivers more heart than you might expect (and maybe more than it needs), but it can be a bit clumsy in its execution and there are many jokes that fall flat. Most importantly though, it’s the kind of movie Jay and Silent Bob fans were hoping for. Read More »
Remember Moose Jaws? Kevin Smith‘s never-made third entry in his True North trilogy? The project seemed to be dead, but Smith has offered a new update that indicates Moose Jaws might become a reality.

Right now you can see Yoga Hosers in select theaters if you’re in the mood to see the latest insane romp from Kevin Smith. The filmmaker behind Clerks, Dogma and most recently the weird horror movie Tusk has said that he set out to make a movie that he would have wanted to watch if he were a 12-year old girl. However, I’m not sure there’s anything in the movie that’s really appropriate for tweens to see. But that’s a different conversation entirely.
Regardless of the appropriateness of the movie for certain ages, the reviews of the movie haven’t been very kind. The movie stands at 21% on Rotten Tomatoes (with a 3.5 rating out of 10), and even Kevin Smith’s most loyal fans haven’t found much to like about the movie. But since Kevin Smith has made nice with critics (apparently by way of this very movie), he decided to face the criticism head-on by reacting to some of the more scathing reviews on a recent episode of his podcast Hollywood Babble-On with Ralph Garman.
Kevin Smith reacts to Yoga Hosers reviews after the jump along with a video featuring a clip where the director gets a little emotional while answering a question posed to him by the film’s star, his daughter, Harley Quinn Smith. Read More »
Based on the last trailer and Kevin Smith‘s recent output as a filmmaker, you probably already know whether you’ll see his upcoming film, Yoga Hosers. The Winnipeg-set comedy, which recently earned a PG-13 rating, picks up where Smith left off with Tusk. He keeps trying new things as a writer/director, telling oddball stories that aren’t for everyone. Yoga Hosers might be his oddest yet, featuring Canadian Nazis, Bratzis, and no shortage of emoticons.
Below, watch the new Yoga Hosers trailer.

Director Kevin Smith is back with a movie that just might be his most insane yet. Yes, even though the Clerks filmmaker has done movies with a giant poop monster and Mark Hamill as a villain called Cock Knocker, and a horror movie with a walrus man, his Canadian-set, teenage horror comedy Yoga Hosers is the most bat shit crazy movie he’s ever made.
Some of the /Film crew caught Yoga Hosers at Sundance, and now the first trailer for the flick proves just how crazy it is. Johnny Depp is back as his goofy detective character Guy Lapointe from Tusk, but Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp (daughters of both Smith and Depp) play the chatty teens known as “The Colleens” in their first lead roles on the big screen.

For the fourth time in his career, writer-director Kevin Smith had gotten into a disagreement with the Motion Picture Association of America, due to the rating of his latest film, Yoga Hosers. However, before the scheduled appeals screening even occurred, the MPAA took another look at the film and decided it was only fair to give Smith his desired PG-13 rating. Now that all of that MPAA nonsense is behind the director, he’s ready to take Yoga Hosers on tour this summer.
Find out below when and where you can see Smith present Yoga Hosers live.

Yoga Hosers feels like a cross between an absurd live-action cartoon created by a stoner and a ’90s-style teenage comedy. It’s so strange, and unlike anything Kevin Smith has directed before. I’m honestly not sure if Yoga Hosers was terrible or if I am just not the target demographic for this story.

This weekend brings the premiere of Kevin Smith‘s latest indie effort, the horror comedy Yoga Hosers, at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. There isn’t a trailer for the film just yet, but the writer/director who launched his career at the indie film fest decided to tease what’s waiting for all of us catching flicks in the mountains with the first Yoga Hosers clip.
Harley Quinn Smith (the filmmaker’s daughter) and Lily-Rose Depp (daughter of Johnny Depp, who also stars in the film) take the leads in the movie, and here we get to see that they’re not too far removed from a couple of characters that Smith’s fans should be very familiar with. Read More »

Cross a film off of Kevin Smith‘s long to-do list.

The Internet had a collective freakout when Kevin Smith revealed his clean-shaven look for his next film, Yoga Hosers. But otherwise, so far Yoga Hosers looks a lot like Smith’s last film, Tusk. The surly convenience store employees are back. So is the maple-syrup-filled convenience store set. And also returning is Johnny Depp‘s Guy Lapointe, along with his signature beret.
