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

What's truly unforgivable is the willful regression

More Empire than Jedi.
April 22, 2009
Notably dubbed as the "gayest film ever" when it premiered at Cannes, "Clerks II" is nonetheless a slight improvement on Smith's original film.

July 30, 2007
Clerks II will resonate with viewers in Smith's age range (mid-thirties) in a way that goes beyond comedy.

July 10, 2007
Smith's "edge" is noticeably MIA in his cash-in-er-sequel, and it shows painfully.
July 3, 2007
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.

June 1, 2007
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.

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.

September 30, 2006
...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.

The laughs are still there.

... as humorous as diphtheria.
September 21, 2006
Despite a handful of great jokes, this is ultimately disappointing - it's badly plotted, badly acted and occasionally downright embarrassing.

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.
August 31, 2006
...less profound than it is uneven, an intermittently satisfying mix.

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.

August 25, 2006
A film with both fart and heart, and is highly recommended for the willing and able.
August 23, 2006
The duds-to-gags ratio is way too high and the general aesthetic (visual and verbal) way too crummy.

August 17, 2006
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.
