As an avid Clerks/Kevin Smith fan, I was a little worried when I heard that Clerks II was coming out. Based on the commercials that I saw it wasn't looking too promising, and I hoped that movie wasn't a short-sighted easy money making film made to exploit Clerks fans out there. I went to see it hoping for the best and expecting the worst. What I ended up with was something much much better than I expected, and pretty much all that I could have hoped for. The movie was full of intelligent and offensive adult humor. The characters from the first movie were given dialog worthy of their initial incarnation, and a few new characters were introduced that fit right in to the regular cast of the first Clerks movie. I enjoyed it enough that I saw it for a second time tonight. In another thread here someone said it wasn't his best flick ever. That may be true. But for many Clerks fans out there, this was a perfect sequel. For those of you who are wondering if you shouldn't see Clerks because it might be lame, I would suggest you go and see it. It is a smart and funny flick, with a love story throw into the mix. It is a great flick worthy of watching in the theatre. The crowd reaction makes it a lot of fun.
