Despite the kind of humor that littered 2001's Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, it was far from a family-friendly film. That being said, if you thought, for some reason, that the upcoming Jay and Silent Bob Reboot would be any different, you'd be sorely mistaken.
Exhibitor Relations Co., a box office analytical authority, released the film's rating and it's about what you'd expect. The outlet confirmed the film is "rated R: for pervasive strong crude sexual content, language throughout, drug use and some nudity," also noting, "Keepin' it f'in R-eal since 1994--only JERSEY GIRL and YOGA HOSERS (both PG-13) weren't labeled 'restricted.'"

The film will follow the same general plot as its predecessor, which saw both Jay and Silent Bob travel across the U.S. to demand royalties for use of their likenesses in a Bluntman and Chronic film. Jay and Silent Bob Reboot will see the titular characters travel across the country once again, this time to stop a reboot of Bluntman and Chronic from being made.
Written and directed by Kevin Smith, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot stars Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Melissa Benoist Shannon Elizabeth, Jason Lee, Donnell Rawlings, Joey Lauren Adams and numerous other stars. The film arrives on Oct. 15.
