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

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.

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.

Nolan's Pop Culture Review
December 13, 2006
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.

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.

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.

The mildest and sweetest of the Jay and Silent Bob canon.

You can't go home again. But it sure is nice to visit.

Clerks II is just as raucous, rude, crude, vulgar, random, and shockingly funny as you would expect, but it is also surprisingly moving at times.

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

The adolescent vulgarities are just a smokescreen for a more serious discussion of a kind of mid-life crisis.
