Movie Info

Dante (Brian O'Halloran) is called in to cover a shift at his New Jersey convenience store on his day off. His friend Randal (Jeff Anderson) helps him pass the time, neglecting his video-store customers next door to hang out in the Quick Stop. The uneventful day is disrupted by news that one of Dante's ex-girlfriends has died. After attending her memorial service, Dante muses over staying with current girlfriend Veronica (Marilyn Ghigliotti) or reuniting with ex Caitlin (Lisa Spoonhauer).

    A great indie comedy that has achieved cult status. Shot in black and white, Clerks has many funny moments. A nice take on many peoples daily lives.

    Kevin Smith deserved all the recognition that he got after presenting us with this hilarious slice-of-life cult movie, which was made with a very limited budget and yet is more authentic, refreshing and amusing than many comedies out there.

    I wasn't a big fan of Jay & Silent Bob also directed by Kevin Smith but this was half good. I did like how it was spanned over one day, because it truly did make it miserable for the protagonist. I think filming in B&W was questionable though. This was far from a serious film and I believe in color, it could've treated itself like it really was, a stupid comedy. A decent stupid comedy, but it's not a smart film. The best scene is where Randall talks with Veronique and the bathroom sex scene. Those were truly hysterical.
