Kevin Smith. Trailblazer.

"'Sex and the City' owns Manhattan at the moment and before that it was Woody Allen," says "Cop Out" director Kevin Smith. "It just feels like everyone does the Manhattan movie. So we decided to make an outer boroughs movie."

I appreciate his reserve in namedropping Woody Allen without shouting "who STOLE Best Picture from STAR WARS, THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER MADE".

And yeah, has anyone ever made a movie about the outer boroughs, like, I dunno, Long Island? Seems kind of far-fetched.

Not a movie, but Family Bonds was an amusing show.

"at the moment"? Huh?  Yeah, everywhere you look these days all anybody wants to talk about is "Sex and the City." And the huge hit movie! That defined the image of Manhattan in the minds of two or three generations of moviegoers.

I think The Boiler Room was based in Long Island, but it's not really a Long Island movie per se.  (The movie is alright, but it got horribly Afflecked)

Lately I just want to punch Kevin Smith right in the Jason Mewes.
You look like a really healthy Arthy Lang.

That one didn't take place in Long Island, though, did it? Just featured it some?

All the beach stuff was LI; the city stuff looked like Queens or Brooklyn.
