    Boring. Trite. Jokes were forced. Clerks is a classic. Clerks 2 is a waste of time.

    If your reason for liking kevin Smith movies is Randall, and you think the dirtier a conversation is, the better it is, then this movie is for you. If you like Kevin Smith for smart dialogue with simultaneously lowbrow/highbrow jokes, and you like Kevin Smith movies for Jay, Silent Bob, Dante, or any of the other charachters who are not Randall, then this movie is NOT FOR YOU.

They're all in there, and totally hilarious as always, but it is primarily a "how dirty can randall talk?!?!?" film, and you will hear him talk very dirty for a very long time. Jeff Anderson, as opposed to Jason Mewes, just isn't an inherently funny enough guy to carry a film like that. Most of his inherent humor was used up in Clerks 1. Expand

    I went to see this movie today. I was disgusted at the language in it and asked for a refund which I received. I read a few reviews but didn't realise the content was so crude.

    Kevin Smith has used up whatever borrowed fuel he had.

Until he shows up at Cannes with this piece of .... that ruined what made the original so great to everyone. Now that Smith has been booed out of France, dropped from Miramax, and closed the coffin on his Askewniverse, he can finally stop torturing us with his movies and get rich off of selling Jay & SIlent Bob merchandise to kids.

    Wow, what was Kevin Smith's excuse for this pile of crap? At least the first one had a sort of film-school debut-vibe going on. But Clerks II was just sad. Terrible acting, terrible story, terrible dialogue--everything sort of fell flat for me. Which made all the raunchy stuff toward the end seem even more desperate.

Silent Bob & Jay are literally the only cool things in this movie--and they have maybe (maybe!) five minutes total screen time. What a disappointment. Expand

    A softer, flabbier and considerably higher-budgeted follow-up to Kevin Smith's 1994 indie sensation that nevertheless packs enough riotous exchanges and pungent sexual obscenities to make its 97 minutes pass by with ease.

    Clerks II can't bear the strain of its amateur-hour theatrics, no matter how big its heart or how many crocodile tears it manages to squirt. The dramatic moments become melodramatic; the bawdy moments turn icky. The fans will eat it up.

    By this point, the rhythms of Smith's dialogue are as predictable and mannered as haikus, and like sitcoms, Clerks II is mostly appealing in its familiarity, from the rat-a-tat cussing to the cameos from Smith's repertory company to the extended riffing on "Star Wars" and geek culture.
