1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing's changed? If only, 14 Nov 2006
I feel compelled to write this review as a massive fan of the first film who completely disagrees with almost everything said below. Nothing has changed since the first film, except for the budget, oh, and the imagination. Kevin Smith has always been a fan of poo and fart jokes, but in Clerks and Mallrats there was more to it. In Clerks II they are pretty much all that is on offer. A prime example of the difference between the writing in the two films is the discussion about workmen on the deathstar from the first one compared to the 'Sam wanted to give Frodo oral sex' one from this film. Nearly all of the jokes in Clerks II have been told before. And they weren't funny then… Read more

Strange, doom-laden music from the dark heart of California this.
There's the ominous rumble of thunder in the distance and the grey clouds are rolling in.

1.0 out of 5 stars abysmal, 20 May 2004
When I first heard this I assumed it was some half-baked chancer trying to cash in on The Streets. When I found out that it was Mike Skinner himself I was appalled at the apparent lack of effort that went into it. Quality control has presumably gone on holiday.
OK, I thought, so maybe it's a grower. And it is. In the same way that cancer is a grower. The track is like a blackhole where a tune should be with the most vacuous, pointless, downright awful lyrics I've heard in quite some time. I think perhaps Skinner has begun to believe his own hype and thinks that any old garbage scrawled on the back of a napkin in a restaraunt will pass as voice of a generation now. For gods sake man,… Read more
