Présentation de l'éditeur

Kevin Smith is full of sh*t, and in this Deluxe eBook he introduces each chapter with a sh*tastic video—that’s over 25 minutes of bonus sh*t talking!

That Kevin Smith? The guy who did Clerks a million years ago? Didn’t they bounce his fat ass off a plane once? What could you possibly learn from the director of Cop Out? How about this: he changed film making forever when he was twenty-three, and since then, he’s done whatever the hell he wants. He makes movies, writes comics, owns a store, and now he’s built a podcasting empire with his friends and family, including a wife who’s way out of his league. So here’s some tough sh*t: Kevin Smith has cracked the code. Or, he’s just cracked.

Tough Sh*t is the dirty business that Kevin has been digesting for 41 years and now, he’s ready to put it in your hands. Smear this sh*t all over yourself, because this is your blueprint (or brownprint) for success. Kev takes you through some big moments in his life to help you live your days in as Gretzky a fashion as you can: going where the puck is gonna be. Read all about how a zero like Smith managed to make ten movies with no discernible talent, and how when he had everything he thought he’d ever want, he decided to blow up his own career. Along the way, Kev shares stories about folks who inspired him (like George Carlin), folks who befuddled him (like Bruce Willis), and folks who let him jerk off onto their legs (like his beloved wife, Jen).

So make this your daily reader. Hell, read it on the toilet if you want. Just make sure you grab the bowl and push, because you’re about to take one Tough Sh*t.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Just BE a Director... 17 avril 2012
Par Don Snyder - Publié sur
One of my favorite lines in the book isn't from the author at all -- it's from his sister. When Kevin told his sister he wanted to be a Director, she told him "then be a Director." Kevin agreed and said he was going to study and take classes, etc. She interrupted him and said "No, just BE a Director." And from that day on he thought as a Director and saw the world as a Director and wrote as a Director. It's a great lesson: don't "wait" to be something or "plan" to be something -- just BE something.

The infuriating thing about Kevin Smith is his determination to hide his intelligence and sensitivity behind a cloud of vulgar profanity and fart jokes. CLERKS and CHASING AMY were the films that prompted me to start writing screenplays and making my own short movies, and for years I held him up as an indie role model, although I lost a bit of faith when Smith squelched his unique voice and began churning out mainstream-ish comedies like COP OUT and ZACK & MIRI. Smith feels my pain -- he's apparently upset with himself, too. But in this new quasi-autobiography, Smith writes with great pinnace about his life, his creative output, his family, and his role models. The result is an absolutely charming book, bordering on inspirational. Smith is often hilarious, but he occasionally delves a bit too far into the gutter for my tastes. (I read far more about his attraction to his wife's a**hole than I ever wanted to know, for instance.) But I couldn't put this book down, and I am pleased to announce that my faith has been restored. Well-played, sir. Well-played.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Life and Times of Kevin S 29 mars 2012
Par Sam Quixote - Publié sur
Since I saw a headline on my RSS feed - "Fat Director kicked off flight" - and clicked on it, then (after reading the brief article surrounded by many ads) going to the Smodcast website, I've been hearing about Kevin Smith's life ever since. For a solid 2 years and change I've had Smodcast and its many, many attendant podcasts playing whenever I've had a long drive with myself or a walk to work or washing up and needing something non-musical. But having listened to the many entertaining stories Kevin has imparted, along with having seen his Q&A specials "Too Fat for Forty" and "Kevin Smith Burn in Hell", I realised after the first chapter of this book that for a person who shares everything, there's very little left to surprise someone who's been following along and listened to every story.

Smith uses his father as an example for the rest of the book - Don Smith was a man who worked 20 years in a job he hated (the US postal service) to provide for his family and then after a too-short retirement, died of heart failure, screaming. The message to Smith was clear - never do a job you hate, never have regrets so when the time comes, you won't go out in as much pain.

From there we get a whirlwind look at Smith's career, the story of "Clerks", and a brief synopsis of every film made since then. The filming of "Cop Out" and his clashes with Bruce Willis are documented, as well as the filming of "Red State" which takes up several chapters. What became known as the "Too Fat to Fly" incident with South West is detailed, and a loving final chapter to his wife Jennifer Schwalbach closes out the book along with a short note from their daughter Harley Quinn Smith.

But for most Kevin Smith fans looking for something new or different from what Kevin usually blogs/tweets/podcasts about? It's not in this book. "Tough S---" is basically a summary of Kev's career as well as a look into the memorable events of the last couple of years, all of which has been thoroughly talked about through Kevin's many podcasts. I suppose for those who haven't been following the pods this is a good place to get his thoughts on the South West incident, Bruce Willis, and Red State, but for those who have, the book might seem like a lot of re-heated material.

That said, the book's message is put out clearly - if I can do it, so can you. Kevin is the encouragement any artist reading this book might lack and, with it, that artist might go on and create and find confidence in their work and create more. And for that alone, this book is worth it.

Despite the feeling of déjà vu I felt while reading it, Smith writes so fluidly (a theme in and of itself in the book) and with such verve, humour, and intelligence, the book is never dull and having read some other reviews of this book, he is clearly an inspiration to many readers. For anyone looking for a book that markets itself as a self-help book but is really a series of funny essays in the life of a charming and gifted storyteller, this book can do no wrong. A quick read but fun, "Tough S---" is a good time with common sense wisdom amid the jokes.

I just listened to Tough Sh-- by Kevin Smith on CDs...Smith narrates his own book and has a machine-gun like delivery - his fusilade choking with pop culture references. And this guy has "no filters" so he offers some interesting insider talk about life under The Weinsteins at Mirimax. He spills about how they (the real artistic rebels at Mirimax) begrudgingly took loads of money from the evil Disney Philistines while despising them at the same time. And eventually he came to despise his mentor Harvey "The Sell-Out" Weinstein too (...just as apparently 99.9% of everyone who meets him does.)

He has some great bits on what it was like to work with his "hero", the seemingly cool, Bruce Willis (Spoiler Alert: BW may be the biggest a--hole in all of Hollywood)...and George Carlin (different from his onstage persona...but in a good way) much money you can make podcasting (so how come Maron is poor?)...and what its like to be booted off a Southwest flight because he was "too fat"...???...Hear him out on this...this story will enrage most people.

Smith is at times pretty times fairly annoying...such as:

Caveat...the real downside/unnecessary part of this book is he gives WAAAAAAYYYY too much raunchy information on his sex-life. He's like a 17 year old ...again,with no filters. ( what normal male adult talks about his mother like he does...on stage/in books/on CDs??) I almost dumped it after the first 15 minutes...(And I'm pretty hard to gross out)...but it got better...until...

Unless you're in prison, you can probably skip the last CD...#5...where he spends several chapters describing in excited-juvenile detail his awkward seduction techniques on his now current wife. Explaining (aka cloaked bragging?) to everyone how unbelievably lucky he is - just a fat, dorky,guy from New Jersey (...who also just happens to have millions of $$$ in L.A. and on the east coast...and be a director/actor in the movie biz) to land a really beautiful unprecedented is that? And then, naturally, he over-shares with us what he does with/to her sexually...??

He should have just sent this "porn letter" section to his wife and spared the rest of us...I want those 52 minutes back.

...if you're not familiar with Kevin Smith. For the rest of us that listen to his podcasts, there's really nothing new here. Smith is notorious for revealing EVERY detail in his life, leaving an autobiography like this almost redundant. That said, his observations are free from pretense and entertaining. He clearly knows his place in the Hollywood star system, and makes no bones about it. His candor is refreshing.
