Fun and funny slice-of-life comedy about two slackers working at a convenience store and video rental shop
Clerks is very funny and innovative for the time, but sadly launched a career of garbage
Normally not my kind of humor, but this slice-of-life meets stoner comedy is sharp the whole way through. Normal people in crazy situations.
Some days it just isn’t worth coming in to work
Absolutely brilliant funny and genius in ways
The Seinfeld of movies in a way, relying almost exclusively on conversations & social interactions. Great writing carries the entire weight.
Some excellent dialogue in probably the best movie out of the connected group of Kevin Smith movies.
Too funny, the dialogue is a masterpiece
Not very theatrical, strongest laughs come from the dialogue but every laugh hits well
Introduced us to Silent Bob and Jay, the first and best offering.
Convenience and video store clerks Dante and Randal are sharp-witted, potty-mouthed and bored out of their minds. So in between needling customers, the counter jockeys play hockey on the roof, visit a funeral home and deal with their love lives.
A calamity at Dante and Randall's shops sends them looking for new horizons - but they ultimately settle at Mooby's, a fictional Disney-McDonald's-style fast-food empire.
After narrowly surviving a massive heart attack, Randal enlists his old friend Dante to help him make a movie immortalizing their youthful days at the little convenience store that started it all.
