The continuing tale of Dante and Randal, two slackers who find that life must change now that they are in their thirties, when it's time to grow up and do something more than just sit around, dissect pop culture and talk about sex.
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.
I like these characters a lot.
What's truly unforgivable is the willful regression
Clerks II strikes its deepest chords when it appeals to the emotional security of a passionately provincial status quo.
Smith, an inherent optimist, has made a movie full of crude humor that also manages to explore the enduring qualities of friendship.
More Empire than Jedi.
It has a more authentic everyday feel than a lot of movies. But it's also very talky and philosophical for a comedy, which would be okay, except the philosophy is kind of shallow.
What [Smith] knows, better than anyone out there, is how rudely funny and deliriously self-deluding those types can be.
Notably dubbed as the "gayest film ever" when it premiered at Cannes, "Clerks II" is nonetheless a slight improvement on Smith's original film.
