You can take the clerks out of the Quick Stop, but you just can't take the Quick Stop out of the clerks as Dante (Brian O'Halloran) and Randall (Jeff Anderson) prove in this long-awaited sequel to Kevin Smith's breakthrough comedy. Years after we last saw them, Dante is still toiling behind the counter at a New Jersey convenience store and Randall is still annoying customers at the video shop next door -- or at least they are until a fire burns down the strip mall, forcing Dante and Randall to look for work. Times are tough, and the guys find themselves embracing the ultimate indignity as they take jobs at Mooby's, a fast-food outlet where the burgers are advertised as "udderly delicious." While Randall's snarky attitude toward the public remains unchanged, Dante is trying to make the best of the situation as he plans to marry his fiancée, Emma (Jennifer Schwalbach Smith), and move to Florida. However, Dante's plans are complicated when he falls for Becky (Rosario Dawson), a funny and tart-tongued woman who happens to be his boss at Mooby's. Lurking about in the background, as always, are Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith), who for good or ill have changed even less with the passage of time than Dante and Randall. Clerks II also features Wanda Sykes, Ethan Suplee, and Trevor Fehrman, with cameo appearances from Kevin Smith regulars Ben Affleck and Jason Lee.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Clerks II is yet another attempt by Kevin Smith to bring to a close the View Askewniverse he launched over a decade before with his low-budget comic gem Clerks. It is difficult not to think of this as a retreat after the failure of Jersey Girl to break out of that fictional world, but the fact is this type of crude yet occasionally socially perceptive dialogue is what Smith does at his best. The film offers a handful of monologues, most all of them by Jeff Anderson as über-caustic loser Randal, that dazzle. An uproarious sequence where Randal begins to suspect a beloved relative might be racist, and a sequence in which Randal's teenage Christian co-worker Elias (Trevor Fehrman) explains about the troll living inside his girlfriend that prevents them from having sex showcase how Smith uses vulgarity to get at deeper issues in the culture. That said, much of the film feels like Smith running away from any ambitions whatsoever. He has most certainly been here and done this before, and the conclusion of the film offers little hope that Smith wants to challenge himself or his diminishing group of devoted loyalists. This leaves a fan asking, "Where can he go from here?" That question might be less depressing if it wasn't the same thought that one took from his previous two films, Jersey Girl and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Clerks II is much better than those previous efforts, but it is hard to shake the feeling that Smith wants to diminish his and other people's expectations of himself just as his characters do. A lack of ambition is a prison for any artist, so one hopes Smith recognizes the irony of staging his climactic scene in a prison cell.

Thank you Kevin!

Definitely, not as good as the first. The racist comedy aside, the beastiality aside, the quirky sytle of Kevin James, as usual, and you have a mediocre movie at best. The jokes are too inunidated with sex, not that any disapproves of that topic. The only good thing was the dispelling myth of the great "Lord of The Rings" Trilogy. Hilarious part.

This movie i personally think is amazing. I first saw it in theaters the opening day thinking it would not live up to its predecessor. I was wrong once again Kevin Smith out does himself. The humor is very inappropriate but what were you expecting. I give it 2 thumbs way up. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did.

Making a film sequel to a comedy is like performing heart surgery while blindfolded. In 1994, Kevin Smith struck the world with his debut, Clerks, a black and white, minimalistic and very profane indie, not to mention one of the best comedies ever made. 12 years later, he brings everyone's favorite slackers back, with hilarious results. Things have changed over the years, despite the apparently normal opening sequence: still in black and white, it sees Dante Hicks (Brian O'Halloran) getting ready for a new day of work. Then comes the shocking discovery: the Quick Stop store is on fire! From that point on, the film is in color, as it chronicles Dante's last day working at Mooby's (a fictional McDonald's-like place). You see, he's moving to Florida with his fiancée, Emma (Jennifer Schwalbach, the director's wife), which implies leaving his boss Becky (Rosario Dawson) and nerdy co-worker Elias (Trevor Fehrman) alone with the consistently rude Randal Graves (Jeff Anderson). Oh, and Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith), quite simply two of the best comedy characters ever, still hanging outside the store doing nothing. But last day doesn't mean it's any different form other days: as usual, Dante and Randal do anything except work, whether it's discussing racial insults or receiving unexpected visits from old high school mates (Jason Lee in a cracking cameo). Same situations, different movie, then? Not quite, as Clerks II has one special thing that was missing back in 1994: sentiment. That's right, this time the characters have feelings, even Randal who, despite refusing to admit it, is going to miss his friend (as the beautiful, Butch Cassidy-referencing go-kart sequence shows). As for Dante, his scenes with Becky are the most touching material Smith has ever shot, thanks to brilliant dialogue and a great performance from Dawson. This new ingredient, however, doesn't mean the director has forgotten what made the first movie so great: the outrageous, so-filthy-you-won't-let-your-mom-see-it humor. Moving it may be, but fundamentally Clerks II is exactly the same as the original: extremely funny and incredibly foul-mouthed. The jokes are relentlessly crude, but the actors'comic timing (particularly Jeff Anderson's) ensures viewers will keep laughing long after the end credits have stopped rolling.

The first Clerks my favorite,but this movie is great also because it brings the old characters and new ones come in.They have the strangest talks in this movie,but you can't stop laughing and it somewhat a story of friendship.So this is a movie to watch.

This movie is worth a watch for anyone who has or hasn't seen Clerks. The movie is one of those movies that great no matter what you know previously of the characters. Another good one from Kevin Smith!
