    Ultimately, Smith finally achieves that perfect balance between humor and heart that he's been dancing towards with all his films.

    It mostly manages the impressive feat of mixing jaw-droppingly gross jokes with characters that are worth caring about.

    This one made me laugh harder than it's predecessor, but less often. I feel like the artistic vision of the first movie was lost for more of gross-out comedy. Like I said, it did make me laugh, and it was worth the watch, but it's what you should expect from a sequel of a classic. Full Review »

    I really feel that Kevin Smith is over rated as a director. I liked Chasing Amy, dogma and mall rats but the clerks movie just don't do it for me. Its just to much potty humor for my taste. Full Review »

    I love this movie!! The first Clerks is great and this one is better than the original. Love all the jokes and love the new concept of working the recurring Mooby's. What handicap, the guy is in a wheelchair Full Review »
