About the Movie
Ten years ago best friends Dante Hicks (Brian O'Halloran) and Randal Graves (Jeff Anderson) were New Jersey mini-mall clerks still slacking off together in their early 20s. Now, Kevin Smith checks back in to see what kind of changes have rocked their lives -- in work, romance and their eternally raucous life philosophy. What he discovers is that never before have so many still done so little while having so much fun doing it. Now working in the fast-food universe, Dante and Randal have managed to maintain, and even hone, their in-your-face attitudes, agile skill with vulgarities and unbridled love of screwing with the customers. But they’re also faced with such shocking new prospects as marriage, leaving Jersey and finding real careers. Smith ("Clerks," "Chasing Amy," "Dogma," "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back") pushes his nothing-is-sacred humor right to the edge and then takes a leap as Dante and Randal invade the world of Mooby's fast food restaurant, where the slogan is "I'm Eating It." Behind the counter, where the only other employees are an uber-nerd (Trevor Ferhman) and an entirely too sexy manager (Rosario Dawson), Dante and Randal are free to offend anybody and everybody who so much as orders fries in their inimitably irreverent way. But, even as riotous debates rage between them over such burning matters as George Lucas v. Peter Jackson v. Jesus, change is on the horizon. When Dante announces that he's going to leave Jersey forever and marry Emma Bunting (Jennifer Schwalbach), Randal plots a going-away party so shocking it will draw the police, the fire department and potential protests from PETA, while altering their lives forever.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: All is well with the Clerks world when these stoners take the screen... and prove that guys can grow old and stay immature forever.
Fresh: Smith, an inherent optimist, has made a movie full of crude humor that also manages to explore the enduring qualities of friendship.
Fresh: Whatever your expectations, they will almost certainly be exceeded by Smith's hilarious and creative return to low-budget cinema.
Rotten: Though Clerks II is in color, the acting is just as amateurish and the directing just as awkward as the black-and-white original. Dawson gives the only competent performance, and only Becky and the abused donkey are sympathetic characters.
really funny but not the best movie
Clerks and Clerks II are both super funny movies! I can't wait till we can buy both, but this movie is one of my all time favorites. It might not be the "cleanest" movie out there, but it has to be one of the funniest.
Dam its about time they put another Kevin Smith movie on here ... Hes the best .. Now how about Clerks , Dogma , Caseing Amy , Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back ... PLEASE
