Having Affleck and Damon completely sht on themselves


I just wanted to say, whether you liked this film or not, and whether you like Kevin Smith or not, that the Good Will Hunting 2 scene was absolutely hilarious, and him getting Damon and Affleck (and Gus Van Sant) to portray themselves as douchebags and completely crap all over their images for the sake of comedy was brilliant.

I still remember seeing this at the movies back in 2001 and laughing my balls off throughout this scene, with Damon telling Affleck to "think about the paycheck" to get through the scene, and namedropping all his crappy movies to insult him, or Affleck talking about how he frosted his tips and kills hookers in his trailer routinely -- great touch.

Smith's a funny dude. People like to rag on him, but he's a funny dude.

I agree. It shows great character for Ben and Matt. Anyone who can laugh at themselves are great.

It was also great writing by Kevin Smith. Very funny stuff.

Talking of actors laughing at themselves, I like the pie-f---er scene!

Gentlemen, England will be playing 4-4-f---ing-2

There were so many great examples throughout the movie. Tracy Morgan as a drug dealer, talking about how much business Mirimax gives him, James Van Der Beek's "doesn't anyone watch the WB?!?!" etc.

The recurring dead hooker bit was awesome. "Ahaaaah! I wasn't even with a hooker today!"

Call them ISIL. Isis is an overloaded term that has many other legitimate uses.

Yes that was one of the highlights. It was also funny seeing Ben and Jason Lee playing two different roles in the same movie.
