No experience necessary.
In 1994, writer-director Kevin Smith scored a surprise indie hit with the low-budget, black-and-white comedy Clerks, which won awards at the Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals and has attracted a growing cult audience over the years. Following such movies as Mallrats, Chasing Amy, and Dogma, Smith returns to his roots for Clerks II, a very funny, very raunchy sequel.
Ten years ago best friends Dante Hicks (Brian O'Halloran) and Randal Graves (Jeff Anderson) were New Jersey mini-mall clerks still slacking off together in their early 20s. A decade on a calamity at Dante and Randall's shops sends them looking for new horizons - but they ultimately settle at Mooby's, a Disney-McDonald's-style fast-food empire... While Dante prepares to move to Florida and marry Emma (Smith's real-life wife, Jennifer Schwalbach), Randal harasses geeky "Funployee of the Month" Elias (Trevor Fehrman), a dweeb who worships The Transformers and believes, much to Randal's consternation, that "The Lord Of The Rings is superior to Star Wars"!. Also back are Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith), who contribute their own warped world view of sex, drugs, and rock & roll.
The film features a string of cameos by familiar faces from other Smith films, including Jason Lee, Ben Affleck, Walter Flanagan, and producer Scott Mosier, as well as Kevin Weisman (Alias), Ethan Suplee (My Name Is Earl), and Wanda Sykes (Curb Your Enthusiasm); and the excellent soundtrack ranges from Talking Heads and the Smashing Pumpkins to King Diamond and Smith vet Alanis Morissette. And beware the donkey!
