I'd probably rather watch Gigli.
It's a vanity film about a director who people have been clamoring for for decades but who I think only has one good film. I don't really care for Kevin Smith's films, although he seems nice, and this documentary didn't help much. It's one of the more sterile, surface level docs I've seen in a while. Even with limited knowledge about Smith outside of his films I found almost no new information here. This is a shame because I think there are interesting takes that could be made on Smith's career and impact but instead we just get his wikipedia entry stretched out to nearly two hours.
It's a pretty basic documentary but there are emotional beats that die hard Smith fans will likely enjoy.
