Denise and I have watched several movies this past week, which is somewhat unusual. Pretty much all of them have been stinkers, which is also unusual.

But tonight, we watched Jersey Girl.

What a really, really good movie. A story that’s actually well written, that doesn’t stoop to cheap tricks or Hollywood glitz. And for a Kevin Smith movie, very light on dialogue and strong on visuals. I can see why Smith’s traditional audience missed this gem–it’s not at all his usual comedy. Highly recommended.
