The penultimate story in the adventures of Jay and Silent Bob, as they come closer to the forefront of the story before taking centre stage in the farcical Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. It's also a far cry from the simplistic, day-in-the-life-of story that was Clerks and to a lesser extent Mallrats.

Bethany (Fiorentino) works in an abortion clinic and turns out to be the last remaining relative of Jesus Christ. It also turns out she's the only one who can stop two angels who have gone AWOL, Loki and Bartleby (Damon and Affleck) from using a loophole and destroying humanity.

More celestial life forms surround Bethany (and Jay & Silent Bob, who are just pretty spaced out) on her quest, and we end up meeting God herself, in the form of Alanis Morisette.

It was quite funny, starred some great actors and was heavily populated ensemble piece that proved Smith's worth as a storyteller and not just another camera-wielding Tarantino clone.
