If you go in simply expecting the movie to be better than Jersey Girl, you're not likely to be disappointed -- but you won't be blown away, either.

...Lewdness for lewdness sake...

July 24, 2006
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.
July 20, 2006
Smith's commentary track for the new "Road House" DVD is riotous -- it's got more laughs than his past two films combined.

What's truly unforgivable is the willful regression
July 21, 2006
The patchy work of a director stuck in an uncomfortable purgatory between his old-school comedic crassness and newfound dramatic mushiness.

Not that Butch and Sundance (or even Harold and Kumar) are going to sweat their place in the buddy movie hall of fame.

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

The emetic outpouring of buddy love in the last reel deserves the adults-only certificate that the rest narrowly escapes.
July 26, 2006
It's a horrible sequel, on par with, say, Caddyshack II in terms of desperation and comic failure.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Smith's "edge" is noticeably MIA in his cash-in-er-sequel, and it shows painfully.
July 23, 2006
Just like the new Star Wars trilogy before it, my youth has been raped once more by another large man sporting a beard. Thankfully this one doesn't wear flannel.

has a huge been-there-done-that factor as Smith tries to recreate the magic of the original

I like trashy humor, but there is not much here to chuckle at.
Full Review | Original Score: D

... more of the same, with just a hint of soul searching between the pop-culture wrestling matches and scatological tirades.
Full Review | Original Score: C+

Tasteless, toxic re-hash of the original
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10
July 20, 2006
Here the storytelling, Smith's great strength, is 90 percent riff and 10 percent theme. Shouldn't the characters be more memorable than the punch lines?

I don't think Smith could have made a worse movie if he tried, and keep in mind, I've seen Jersey Girl.

Kevin Smith has grown up, even if his films haven't. That might explain why Clerks II can't quite decide how old it wants to act.
