Critic Consensus: Clerks II dishes up much of the graphic humor and some of the insight that made the 1994 original a cult hit.

Critic Reviews for Clerks II

All Critics (160) | Top Critics (40)

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.

Top Critic

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

Top Critic

It has a more authentic everyday feel than a lot of movies. But it's also very talky and philosophical for a comedy, which would be okay, except the philosophy is kind of shallow.

I like these characters a lot.

Smith, an inherent optimist, has made a movie full of crude humor that also manages to explore the enduring qualities of friendship.

What [Smith] knows, better than anyone out there, is how rudely funny and deliriously self-deluding those types can be.

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
