The movie was great fun. I caught it at 10:25 this morning and laughed myself ****less throughout the movie. The acting is good; Randall is still my favorite character, though Jay got pretty close this time around. So many priceless moments and quotes...
Well, just for those of you who were looking for all these things to go on with the movie:
The movie is partially in black and white. The beginning and end are. And the beginning is piss yourself funny.
It is just called Clerks II, not the Passion of the Clerks.
...that's all for now. It didn't have as many funny-serious dialogue portions as Clerks, but it had its moment. It's serious moments are pretty good too, but not Chasing Amy good. But its funny moments are funnier. I give it 9/10.
you can completely see the development of Smith from little Indie director to full blown Hollywood guy over the years (I've been watching all his films save Jersey Girl all week). This one is SO drastically different in film tone to Clerks. But it is still good.
God, I love the character of Randal. What a great character.
To be honest. . .the only Kevin Smith movie I liked more than Clerks II was Dogma, and that's only because it's a classic (And I own them all, minus Jersey Girl). Clerks II was the funniest movie I have seen in a long, long time.
This made 4 million at the Box Office on Friday, beating out Super Ex-Gf and passing the first film's total box office gross. (3 million.) By the end of today, CII will make its budget back (5 million).
The only other of Kevin's "ViewAskewniverse" films I've seen are Dogma and Strike Back, and I liked them both a lot. Dogma's still the best of the 3.
I was losing it when Randall starts listing all the racist terms he knows for black people, and the LOTR vs SW scene was perfect.
I had a real geek moment when Lance mentioned the "Who Shot First?" argument. I let out one "hah!" that wouldn't have been too loud, but since I seemed to be the only person in the theatre who got it, it was.
P.S. Who wants to bet they'll be selling "PM4Life" shirts on bustedtees.com within the next two weeks?
