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

Clerks II will resonate with viewers in Smith's age range (mid-thirties) in a way that goes beyond comedy.

Cinema Crazed

A listless sequel with the usual cast appearances and pop culture gags that drop like a deflated balloon.

Eye for Film

Smith's attempt to get all introspective about growing up yields a plot that is at core rather mawkish and cliched - but when it comes to writing hilariously juvenile lines, he still has the old magic.

Kam Williams
Upstage Magazine

Deliberately disgusting, scatological, profane and vulgar, which makes this critic a bit embarrassed to admit that he found himself frequently laughing out loud at such offensive and obscene material.

Michael A. Smith
Nolan's Pop Culture Review

While Jay has always introduced Silent Bob as his "hetero life mate," it is actually Randall that is connected to Dante. It's obvious that he will miss his friend, and Anderson makes us miss him too.

...Probably the funniest film Smith has done since the original - it's chock full of childish humour and witty observations on pop-culture - but there's something real beneath all of that as well. Something, dare it be said, touching.

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.

Despite a handful of great jokes, this is ultimately disappointing - it's badly plotted, badly acted and occasionally downright embarrassing.

...less profound than it is uneven, an intermittently satisfying mix.

Bangor Daily News (Maine)

Raunch only works well if there is an undercurrent of substance at hand to lift the bottom feeding. "Clerks II" has no problem plunging into its messy depths while also, somehow, generating a groundswell of affection for its messy characters.

A film with both fart and heart, and is highly recommended for the willing and able.

Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus

The duds-to-gags ratio is way too high and the general aesthetic (visual and verbal) way too crummy.

Shadows on the Wall

Yes, it's clunky, silly and often downright obscene. But there's a depth of character that makes it well worth seeing.

Smith's politically incorrect references are never malicious or fueled by anger.
