Movie Summary

Kevin Smith
Clerks II is the 2006 sequel to the 1994 Kevin Smith directed film, Clerks. Eleven years have gone by since the events in Kevin Smith's debut film effort, and Dante (Brian O'Halloran) and Randal (Jeff Anderson) are still working at the block of stores containing the Quick Stop and RST Video. However, the two friends must take a job at Mooby's fast food restaurant after the Quick Stop burns down thanks to Randal's negligence. Dante is planning on moving to Florida to stat a family with his fiance Emma (Jennifer Schwalbach Smith), though Dante seems to have romantic feelings towards his boss, Becky Scott (Rosario Dawson). The film focuses on the day leading to Dante's departure as he works in Mooby's with Randal, Becky, and Elias (Trevor Fehrman) as they do their job with as little effort as possible. And, as is the case with all Kevin Smith films, Jay & Silent Bob (Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith) are loitering outside and selling drugs. Becky reveals to Dante that she is pregnant and he must decide if he should leave New Jersey with Emma or stay with Becky.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 75

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    An agreeable mischievous romp.

  • 70

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    What makes Clerks II both winning and (somewhat unexpectedly) moving is its fidelity to the original "Clerks" ethic of hanging out, talking trash and refusing all worldly ambition.

    Variety Justin Chang

    A softer, flabbier and considerably higher-budgeted follow-up to Kevin Smith's 1994 indie sensation that nevertheless packs enough riotous exchanges and pungent sexual obscenities ...

  • As Funny As The First

    Hands down the best reason this movie is so funny is Randall. He is the best character in this movie, saying everything on his mind.

    My favorite part of the movie is when Randal rips apart Lord of the Rings so hard, he made a fanboy literally puke.

    Jay and Silent Bob also make their triumphant return and are still up to their crazy antics.

    Dante is still the straight man of the group but is now engaged and moving to Florida. His fianc, Emma, however does not get him at all and thinks it's cute when he tries to think. Meanwhile, Dante and Randall's manager, Becky is shown to be in love with Dante and likes him for who he is.

    Despite having his twisted sense of humor, deep down, Randall is actually devastated that Dante is leaving and at the end of the movie, tells Dante he's his best friend. The movie ends with and Randall buying Quickstop and RST video as their own bosses with Becky married to Dante.moreless
