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 to date, and went on to become a box office bomb. It is also the second film 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. It is the second film where Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler play a couple, the previous being in the 1998 film Armageddon. Jersey Girl was the first Kevin Smith film that did not feature Jay and Silent Bob. 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.
