Jersey Girl is a 2004 American comedy-drama film written, co-edited, and directed by Kevin Smith. It stars Ben Affleck, Liv Tyler, Raquel Castro, George Carlin, Jason Biggs, Jennifer Lopez, and Will Smith. At $35 million, it was Kevin Smith's biggest-budget project but went on to become a box office bomb. It was the second film where Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler played a couple, after the 1998 film Armageddon. It was the first film written and directed by Smith not to be set in the View Askewniverse and the first not to feature appearances by Jay and Silent Bob, although animated versions of them appear in the View Askew logo. Jason Mewes, the actor who played Jay in the View Askewniverse films, was to have a part in the film as "Delivery Guy" with the memorable "crotch rot" line, but Kevin Smith had temporarily severed ties with him as part of a "tough love" approach to get him to quit using heroin. The role was given to Matthew Maher. Betty Aberlin, best known as Lady Aberlin of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood’s Neighborhood of Make-Believe, portrays Gertie's teacher, a nun. She also portrayed a nun in Smith's earlier film Dogma. Wikipedia
