Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A buoyant, bleakly funny comedy chronicling a day's worth of activity at two adjoining stores.
Fresh: The film looks no more expensive than it was; some of the acting (by local nonprofessionals) is spectacularly amateurish; the story is a series of anecdotes about hockey, shopping and loving the one you're with. But it's worth loitering in this shop.
Fresh: A collegiate and post-collegiate laugh fest.
Fresh: Clerks is so utterly authentic that its heroes have never heard of their generation.

Kevin Smith At His Best
Clerks is easily one of Kevin Smith's best films despite (or perhaps because of) it's low budget production. It's brilliantly irreverent humor really can't be matched and the film is all but outright dripping with charm. That being said, why the devil does the HD version of this film run a full four times that of the standard definition version? You're paying for improved picture quality not a full-on special edition director's cut with a fully posable action figure. In a similar vein note the plot summary, which seems to come straight off the back of the Blu-ray box. Such polish and attention to detail might help to explain the peculiar pricing.
Angst in New Jersey
Great movie. Some of the characters sound like they’re reading their lines from a teleprompter, including Dante, at least in the beginning, but the video store guy Randal is excellent and he made the whole movie worthwhile. Situations and dialogue were decidedly sophomoric & stretched at times, but in some ways that made it all the more amusing.
