I never would have guessed we would get an extended cut of Jersey Girl on Bluray before getting Mallrats. I wonder if this will come out next year. Jersey Girl 10th Aniversary edition? Still kinda bummed he skipped Dogma X and Jay and Bob X.

Recently re-watched Jersey Girl for the first time in a while. Definitely my least favorite KS film. Very saccharine sweet, in a bad Hollywood cookie-cutter kind of way. The only entertaining part for me was when Afleck went to the job interview conducted by JL & MD; very funny, and a nice homage to Smith's earlier films. That being said, IMHO it did have a nice soundtrack.

Also, was it just me, or was the video store that Afleck kept going to (and where he met the LT character) deliberately put in there as an homage to Clerks?! The reason I ask is because JG was released in 2004 (and was probably filmed in 2003), and that store only carried VHS tapes, no DVD's - at least none that I could see. I remember getting my first DVD player in 2003, and IIRC by 2003/2004 stores like Blockbuster & Hollywood Video were already phasing out VHS tapes...This seemed odd - unless the store in the film was intentionally one of those old neighborhood stores that was several years behind other rental places....

Doesn't the film take place in the mid-90's?

I believe most of the film took place in 2003. In the very beginning of the film it says "1994" (when Afleck is at the Christmas party), but the scene when he has his melt-down & insults those reporters at the Hard Rock Cafe is in 1996, since that's the same year "Independence Day" was released (this is referred to in the film); his daughter is an infant that year. Then, when she's 7, that's when they go to the video store and see the LT character for the first time. So, yes, 2003 is when the bulk of the film takes place.

OK. Well I got my first DVD player in 2003 as well, waited until they were $100 or less. Back then my neighborhood Hollywood Video just had a very small section of DVDs, well over 90% of stock was VHS. I don't think the video store in Jersey Girl was an homage to Clerks, it worked for the plot - Affleck's character wanted to rent a porn tape from the back without his daughter knowing, and that brought up the topic of sex and for him to admit he hadn't had sex since his wife died, which made him even more attractive to Liv Tyler's character. JG is very different from other Kevin Smith films and yes, a little saccharine sweet, but I've always enjoyed it - the sum of all the parts work, and I especially enjoy George Carlin - it was his last acting role before his death.

Glad to hear about an extended cut coming to Blu-ray. This is a really sweet natured movie and one of his best, IMO. It's the kind of movie that grows on you too. I'd love seeing a extended version. (Though I'd also kind of like to see the first few minutes of Jersey Girl re-edited as the stuff with Jennifer Lopez feels out of place considering...)

Where did you hear about an extended cut? Would be great if true. I have always liked this movie, but felt that the movie was missing something. Hopefully we will be able to see that someday.

Kevin Smith said on his Hollywood Babble On podcast, Miramax had invited him in to look at doing an extra cut, as Harvey Weinstein had ordered him to jettison a load of footage and get rid of J-Lo as soon as possible after the Ben Affleck and J-Lo thing went south. Apparently Weinstein was so concerned he considered recasting her role and reshooting her scenes, apparently Jennifer Garner (I think it was) was Weinstein's preferred choice...

That was all from memory and I can't remember which episode, so some of it's bound to be wrong, but I'm sure somebody will correct me if that's the case

I remember that episode. You are correct on all of that (as far as what Smith said).

He went on to say that the extended cut is substantially longer (I want to say between 30-40 mins?) and that he felt as though the cut version is in his opinion the better film. Most of the extended material was with Jennifer Lopez and more of her story with Affleck. But like you, I heard this a while ago so I may not be 100% accurate.

But he did say he watched it, did the commentary, and that its happening. He didnt really give a ballpark date though (if he even knew)

So, does that mean this title went back to Miramax and not to Lionsgate like many assumed? Or is LG distributing Miramax now?

Miramax titles are distributed by Studiocanal internationally, Lionsgate in the US and shared between Studiocanal and Lionsgate in the UK & Ireland.

I'm not sure if Studiocanal owns global rights, and Lionsgate acquired US rights through it's library deal with Studiocanal, or if the US deal is separate, and I've no clue why they're sharing the rights in the UK & Ireland (although the UK & Ireland are the only countries where both studios operate as distributors).

Miramax always owned the rights, home video releases by LG and others are just distribution deals.

Actually it's a bit more complicated than that. Disney sold Miramax, the name itself and library of 700+ films in December 2010 to a group of investors. The new owners then started cutting deals for distribution of the existing library on home video and digital distribution (streaming, TV, etc.). In February 2011 Miramax entered an agreement with Studio Canal and Lionsgate to distribute over 550 films on DVD & BD; LG distributes in the US and SC distributes in Europe. Just a week later they struck a deal with Echo Bridge to distribute an additional 251 films on DVD/Blu-ray in the US. Jersey Girl on Blu-ray in the US is from Echo Bridge. In March 2011 Miramax entered a deal with Alliance to release the entire Miramax library on DVD & BD in Canada.

Miramax owners also have a 20 year agreement with the Weinstein Company to develop new content in partnership with Miramax, including films and TV series. Sequels to existing Miramax films are included in that deal, and sequels to Rounders, Bad Santa, and Shakespeare in Love are said to be in development. Since it was Harvey Weinstein that ordered all that material to be cut from Jersey Girl I would be surprised to see a new release restoring all the cut material. But then, life is full of surprises.

Studiocanal owns the rights to all of Europe, but for some reason the UK & Ireland releases are jointly done by Lionsgate and Studiocanal, which makes me wonder if Lionsgate inherited the rights from Studiocanal (Lionsgate has a deal for the Studiocanal library) or if the two companies jointly bid together with a co-operation agreement in the UK & Ireland...

I thought the Echo Bridge deal had just ended according to a recent thread. And I also thought Harvey Weinstein had a stake in the investors that currently own Miramax, so if he didn't want the cut to be released, discussions wouldn't even have taken place (which we know they have)...

Well, Lionsgate & Studiocanal work closely together in cross distribution of each others films in different territories, so for some reason they decided LG would distribute JG in the UK & Ireland. Neither company seems to think this title is a hot seller, in checking Amazon UK I see a 2011 DVD release from LG, but the only Blu-ray releases are the US import and a Spanish import.

I don't believe the Echo Bridge deal ended - not every Miramax film is a Shakespeare in Love and budget distributor EB is a good fit for the less popular titles. The agreement with Weinstein to develop new content, including sequels, is a joint venture meaning booth will invest in the development, but I've never seen any reference to Weinstein investing directly in the new ownership. The Weinsteins were in the bidding to buy Miramax from Disney, but lost out.
