Product Description

Independent comedy revolving around two 'slackers' - the harassed Dante and his foul-mouthed, dirty-minded sidekick Randal. Forced to mind the local general store when his boss 'phones in sick, Dante has to endure a stream of eccentric customers, whilst juggling his attention between his current girlfriend and a returning ex-flame. Randal makes things worse with his consumer-unfriendly antics, and when an overexcited customer passes away in the shop's toilet, Dante realises it's not going to be his day.

From Amazon.co.uk

Before Kevin Smith became a Hollywood darling with Chasing Amy, a film he wrote and directed, he made Clerks, a $27,000 comedy about real-life experiences working for chump change at a New Jersey convenience store. A rude, foul-mouthed collection of anecdotes about the responsibilities that go with being on the wrong side of the till, the film is also a relationship story that takes some hilarious turns once the lovers start revealing their sexual histories to one another. In the best tradition of first-time, ultra-low budget independent films, Smith uses Clerks as an audition piece, demonstrating that he not only can handle two-character comedy but also has an eye for action--as proven in a smoothly handled rooftop hockey scene. Smith himself appears as a silent figure who hangs out on the fringes of the store's property. --Tom Keogh, Amazon.com

Format: DVD
Made in 1994 for $27,000 on Kevin Smith's credit cards, shot almost entirely at night in the store where he was working, oddball friends roped in for every job on both sides of the camera, and possibly the funniest script ever written specifically for 18-25s makes Clerks one of the greatest achievements in indie filmmaking.
We see a day in the life of downtrodden slacker Dante (Brian O'Halloran) who gets called into work in his convenience store in Anywheresville, New Jersey at dawn on his day off. What follows is the weirdest day in the history of low-end retail. No spoilers, but Dante is harassed both physically and mentally by his boss, his boss's wife, customers, friends, colleagues, sales reps, corpses, lovers, ex-lovers, ex-lovers of his ex-lovers and the two local drug dealers. He lurches back and forth between earth-shattering revelations and bizarre crises until someone from the past turns up and he makes his worst decision yet. The earlier events of the day are as nothing compared to what fate has in "store"..
Many of the sublime setups revolve around his best friend Randall (a seminal performance by Jeff Anderson) a video store operative who makes Dante look like a Lexus Dealer, and who is the source of Dante's chagrin on more than one occasion. The film also introduces Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewes, Smith's muse, and Smith himself) as the local substance wholesalers with wisdom beyond compare when Jay is not abusing the local community.
The script has just as many quotable lines as Withnail and I - grotesque, cringeworthy, profane in the extreme and very, very funny. Kevin Smith would never reach the same heights again, getting closest with Dogma, although all his films are watchable.

Format: DVD
I bought this in a box set with two other films - JAY & SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK & CHASING AMY. I had heard great things about this film and when I finally watched it last night I was not let down - I thought it was really funny and to be honest not a lot of things happen so the comedy is in their conversations to each other and how they interact with customers. All the story is about is a day in the lives of Dante & Randle, Dante works in a corner shop and Randle works in a video rental store next to him.

Randle comes in to talk to Dante and basically spends all day there. While there they engage in stupid conversations about the Death Star in Star Wars or stupid questions customers ask in their stores. Jay & Silent Bob are in this too - as two youths that hang out outside the shop doing nothing (and thats all the way through the film) One of the funniest scenes in it was when Randle was ordering loads of porn videos infront of a customer.

The DVD its self is brilliant what you have is 3 DVDS - Disc 1 is the theatrical version with a cleaned up picture and clearer sound, Disc 2 is The Extended Cut with about 20 mins extra at the end of the film and thats it so your not really missing much, Disc 3 is jam packed with special features and there is too many to mention.

Last night was the first time I had seen the film and to be honest was the first film I had watched that was directed by Kevin Smith. So all I can say is buy yourself a copy and have a good laugh at it and yes it is black & white but don't let that put you off, I can't wait to see CLERKS II because if this is anything to go by then I'm in for a right laugh.

Thank you for reading my review.

Customers come and go, are insulted, abused and served. An incredible high number of weirdos seem to pass through the shops doors all of whom try the patience of Dante (our lead character) the man behind the counter. Dante's best friend Randall works next door at the local video shop, and regularly pops by to impart his observations on life. Written and directed by 23-year-old Kevin Smith, the film was made on a shoestring budget in grainy black and white. A superb first film for Kevin, shame that some of his mates weren't better at acting. (aaoow).

Having seen 'Mallrats'(1995) a long time ago and recently watched and enjoyed 'Dogma'(1999), a friend informed me of 'Clerks' as being the original. It's incredibly entertaining and if you've ever liked any of Kevin Smith's movies you'll love it. In my case it has spured me on to watch all of his other films again and I look forward to the upcoming 'Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back'. Not exactly family material but hugely enjoyable and a worthwhile purchase.

Format: DVD
Nothing stands more importantly than a debut of a famous star, it represents the core element of the person before they come well known. Hence Oasis, Hence Quention Tarantino, Hence The Sex Pistols, their debuts are justified.

Another justified debut is the low budget flick Clerks by Kevin Smith. Based on personal events in Smith's life, Clerks is about life through the eyes of two convenience store workers. To anybody this would sound like a dull film and with the black and white colour it adds to the suspiscions but for anyone who knows Smith's work knows how great a writer he is.

So instead what you get is a story about two guys with no ambition in life, trying to deal with all the prejudices and situations, in different ways whether it be standing back and letting it go over your head or being confrontational. This is exactly what you get with Dante (Brian O'Halloran) and Randal (Jeff Anderson), a real sense of reality.

Although the majority of it is vulgar and offensive, it makes you stop think that reality is no different and Smith captures that within 90 minutes. So if you happen to stumble onto this film, this edition is the best thing you could ever buy. Included is the first cut of the film, grainy and lacking in sound quality, but is good as a historical piece, then there's the Snowball Effect documentary, talking about how Clerks came to be.

Add that along with some Jay and Silent Bob MTV snippets, an animated Clerks cartoon of the lost scene, trailers, commentaries and a flying car short film, this is a bumper pack.

Buy it now, it'll forever change your perception of films.
