Clerks II (2006) August 6, 2006

Posted by Eury in Comedy, Movies.

Hopefully in 50 years we'll read: Coming to a theatre near you: Geriatric Clerks!

Dir. Kevin Smith

Starring Brian O’Halloran, Jeff Anderson, Rosario Dawson, Jason Mewes etc.

When the store where Dante (Brian O’Halloran) and Randal (Jeff Anderson) have worked for the past decade burns down, they have a harsh reality to face; it just may be time to grow up. It isn’t easy for them to wean off their teenage jobs and attitudes, but they do realize that if they want more in life than to be teenagers for the rest of their lives, they just may have to.

It’s a pretty comfortable place as a young male adult with little or no responsability, to not need anything more than a few bucks, a few beers and a few girls to keep you happy. Then things change. One day you wake up and you want more. They worry that they may have really wasted the last 10 years of their lives and that perhaps it’s too late for them to desire more than what they already have… so what do you do? Do you do what is expected of you… get that job, marry that girl and have those 2.4 children? Their questions help us look at ourselves and make us ask ourselves if we do what pleases everyone else, or can we go on to different things but still stay true to the essence and core of who we are.

You could say that Kevin Smith is the master of irreverent humour and he doesn’t back down with Clerks II. Although the boys are growing up, they have not lost their smutty mouths and how dull if they did. Although the movie has an underlying deep message, it is hilarious and full of misbehavior and bad boy cheekiness (in more than one way 😉 ).

I laughed and I cried because this movie had it all, it had gut-busting fun (although not for the squeamish or easily offended) and it had heart.

I must add that I was very tempted to write a really bad review… because I know that Kevin Smith keeps tabs on what people are saying about him and his movies and how awesome it would be to actually get him to visit our review of his movie… but I cannot tell a lie, I enjoyed this thoroughly.
