Kevin Smith United States, 2004

Evan Schafer's rating of the film Jersey Girl

For a Kevin Smith film to be somewhat predictable and charming actually isn't such a bad thing, given the kind of films he is typically known for making. It is a testament to his range as both writer and director, and everything about this film simply works without having to try. Sure, it's a love-lost, love-gained story at its roots, but it is an endearing one at that and is incredibly well executed. Very good.
