I want to see this film. It looks hilarious! It looks to be completely different than the first one and like it might be better. And I liked the first one.

From the trailer, it looks like a sequel to WAY more than Clerks... I see elements of dogma, J&SBSB and more. Can't wait foir it to show up here in BFE... Kevin Smith ROCKS!

As I've said before, I think all those movies - Dogma, Chasing Amy, J&SBSB - are essentially sequels to clerks, at least inasmuch as they feature the same cast, some of the same characters, and at least weakly interlinked storylines. So Clerks II is just another in a long line of sequels to Clerks. Still, it does look promising, and I hope to get out to see it pretty soon.

I know what you mean... it just looks more like a vehicle for J&SB (who were really VERY minor charcters in Clerks 1) than the story of Dante & Randal.

Are they in the movie more, or just in more of the previews? I've gone to see movies that have had some of my favorite actors in the previews only to find out that, what they showed of them in the previews, was basically their whole role in the movie.

I'm only assuming they're in the movie more, since i haven't seen it yet. They seem to be the center of the View Askewniverse anymore, so it would just make sense to feature them more. After all, J&SBSB grossed something like 10x what Clerks originally did. Kevin ain't stupid.

Did you know that it wasn't until I saw Dogma, that it clicked that Silent Bob and Kevin Smith were the same person?

That makes me feel somewhat better. I didn't realize it until watching 100 Funniest Movies on VH1 last night. ROFL

Then again, I don't follow movies close enough to know who directs what, let alone what they look like.

I heard it is a complete copycat and very unfunny. This might have put an end to his career. How many stupid movies can one director make of two losers standing outside a Quick Trip?

It is only getting one star out of five with most critics. Only Lady in the Lake is getting worse reviews.

I'd say you haven't seen the previews.

I'm a known cynic, so believe me when I say that this movie wasn't dissapointing. Very funny; an above average film perhaps. Raunch and controversial in that Clerks way, but it has this element of sweetness in it and allows for actual growth for the characters.

If you like Kevein Smith movies, you'll like Clerks II. Period.

I got home at midnight last night, popped in "An Evening with Kevin Smith". Ended up watching the whole damned thing. (Around 4 hours) I'd forgotten how good that DVD was.

Not that viewer ratings are the final word or anything, but so far it's getting pretty good reviews over on IMDB. Anything over a 7 is typically a pretty good flick, and it's rated a 7.6 right now.

Now, I'm wanting to go see it even more. Anyone free? :) Nah, I think I'll wait a few weeks for the crowds to settle down a bit.

Of course it will suck. Halfcan told me Rush isn't even on the soundtrack.

Is it just the previews or are J&SB much more prominent compared to Clerks 1?

Just a tiny bit more. The movie is clearly centered around, and about, Dante and Randall, so don't fret.

Thats kind of sad. But i guess Kevin Smith films have a very "niche" appeal. Im sure it will do much better on DVD.

I saw it last Friday. I was very impressed. I think an above poster said it well when he mentioned the raunch, added with Smith's ultimate "sweetness" that give the film heart. It IS funny, and will come away with another ton of those lines you throw around in conversation, and it's fun.

It is NOT Shawshank Redemption. It is NOT Citizen Kane. It's just a really fun and funny movie with likeable characters and hijinks.

Well said. I saw it yesterday and really enjoyed it. It's more of a conventional comedy than the first movie but is still very edgy with a few laugh-out-loud moments and great dialogue.

For those that are talking about the bad reviews, it actually has a Fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.com, which is pretty hard to get these days, especially for a comedy. For certain reviewers, I would rather them not like the movie I'm going to see. I don't see myself having the same taste in movies as Joel Siegel.

Hmm...everyone that has seen it and replied on here seems to have liked it. Maybe you shouldn't put as much faith in the reviews.

Looks like they made $10 Million opening weekend. Not bad for a movie that cost $5 mil to make.
