for some reason this movie got a lot of negativity thrown at it. i have no idea why... this is a beautifully made and honest movie with a soundtrack that had me blubbing like a child with a skinned knee. kevin smith may not be the best cinematographer in the business, but all of his work is filled with a heart and a soul and a genuine love of making movies. jersey girl is funny, heartwarming and not even the casting of j-lo is enough to mar the quality of the story. jersey girl nay-sayers... why don't you just go out and rent 'white chicks' or something?
