DisapointingBy add (29 reviews) from EXETER , 13 Apr 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]What Kevin Smith achieved with the original Clerks on a shoe string budget has to be commended; it was edgy, believable and most importantly funny. Ever since however the quality of his films has been on a steady decline, culminating in the God awful Jersey Girl and unfortunately Clerks 2 doesnt alter the trend. 10 years on the lead characters are older, fatter, and none the wiser, and with age theyve morphed from charismatic slackers into unbelievably pathetic losers still cracking fart jokes. I simply didnt sympathise them and its telling that the characters not involved in the first film come out of this the best. Dante (played by Brian O Halloran .who cant act to save his life) is most at fault, a decade on this character still hasnt discovered a personality and is just used to prop Randals delinquent wise cracks (yet the plot centers around him and the two beautiful women pursuing him!). The painfully over sentimental ending tries to alter the tone and give the film some sort of purpose but it just doesnt fit and anyhow by then I was a long way from caring. To get the most from this film Id recommend low expectations and paying zero attention to the barley there plot and enjoy the few sketches that are funny (Porch monkey, donkey show and the Lord of the Rings impression were priceless), that or just watch the first one.

great filmBy a customer from skipton , 02 Dec 2008nearly very nearly as good as clerks
Clerks IIBy a customer from Bishop's Stortford , 28 Nov 2008Appalling childish smutty humour. The entire film appears to be aimed at an audience with a single figure IQ

Not as good as original...By Steve1441 (29 reviews) from Cheltenham , 06 Oct 2008But then as the original was so good, I didn't really expect it to be better. If you're Kevin Smith fan, you'll enjoy it but the humour is pretty crude.
its a crackerBy jakmmorr (8 reviews) from Bristol , 08 Sep 2008the funnyist film i seen in ages . i love jay and silent bob . keep them coming kevin smith.
Kevin Smith fans, this is your new favorate!By RobTheDJ (5 reviews) from Winsford , 17 Aug 2008As is with all of Director/Producer/Writer/actor Kevin Smith's films, this is for the fans. If you have already been enlightened by his movies (especially Clerks) then this is a must see, but i'd recommend watching the original before watching this, simply because of all the obscure references.
Stars once again our hapless heroes Dante and Randall, not to mention the weed smoking, Morris Day and the Time lovin, monkey spankin duo of Jay and Silent Bob.
I dont want to mention any plot as i dont want to give away anything, the movie is just too good to spoil it for you fans out there. Suffice to say, you will be shocked, you will fall out your chair crying with laughter, you'll feel sorry for some of the characters (and abused animals, whoops!) and most of all, you'll feel warm inside when things actually go right for once!
Or do they?...
