Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
Ollie Trinkie is a publicist, who has a great girlfriend, Gertrude, whom he marries and they are expecting a baby but while he is looking forward to being a father, he doesn't lighten his workload. Gertrude gives birth but dies in the process. Ollie doesn't live up to his responsibilities as a father. Eventually the strain and pressure of losing his wife and being a father gets to him and he has breakdown, which leads to his termination. So with nothing much to do he tries to be good father to his daughter, Gertie. He also meets a young woman name Maya, who likes him but he is still not over his wife.Written by
When Ollie picks up Gertie at school and they are discussing about Cats, as the camera alternates shots between Ollie and Gertie you can see the background moving at different speeds (slower for Ollie, faster for Gertie). See more »

Before the end credits, a dedication appears to Kevin Smith's father, who died before the film was released. See more »
What happened Kevin? How did you go from Jay and Silent Bob to this?
Jersey Girl is Smith's weakest film to date. Over sentimental, a poor script and truly horrific performances are all factors that mar this film and bring it down to new depths that Smith has never seen. Some of the jokes are just so awful I can't actually comprehend what was going on in Smith's mind when he wrote them - like Affleck and Tyler being caught having sex by a family member? What on earth? Is Smith really so creatively poor that he has to take one of the biggest clichés in motion picture history and insert it into a pivotal moment in what is meant to be a different style of film? After seeing this whole film you will see that the answer is yes! What a waste of time and effort!
