Consensus: Clerks II dishes up much of the graphic humor and some of the insight that made the 1994 original a cult hit.

While the film is rude and raucous throughout, it doesn't have a bad bone in its body, providing a joyous, celebratory swansong for the beloved characters.

Clerks II strikes its deepest chords when it appeals to the emotional security of a passionately provincial status quo.

Dispite being silly, Clerks 2 it's a great chance to see these unforgettable characters again and, oddly, finally growing up.

I died with laughter when I first saw this film. It might not be funny to some, but this is definitely my type of raunchy humor.
