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.

The emetic outpouring of buddy love in the last reel deserves the adults-only certificate that the rest narrowly escapes.

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