While the film is rude and raucous throughout, it doesn't have a bad bone in its body, providing a joyous, celebratory swansong for the beloved characters.

Clerks II strikes its deepest chords when it appeals to the emotional security of a passionately provincial status quo.

Top Critic

The emetic outpouring of buddy love in the last reel deserves the adults-only certificate that the rest narrowly escapes.

Notably dubbed as the "gayest film ever" when it premiered at Cannes, "Clerks II" is nonetheless a slight improvement on Smith's original film.

Audience Reviews for Clerks II

Tries to break new frontiers when it comes to bad taste and humor below the belt and actually manages that, for good or for worse. Thankfully the second half shows some heart under all the piss and sperm jokes and the ending is quite sweet. Like in the modern classic predecessor the best parts are the discussions of pop culture although they do not quite feel as original here, sometimes even a bit forced. Still, overall enjoyable if you're no prude.

Clerks II may not be such a cult-like hit as its predecessor but it does heighten up the amount of obscenity, vulgarity and overall raunchiness. The film's obscure humor is over-the-top and story provides insight and somewhat sentiment to make this a more-than-decent sequel. 4/5

Dispite being silly, Clerks 2 it's a great chance to see these unforgettable characters again and, oddly, finally growing up.
