Good! But not great...,
This review is from: Clerks II [DVD] (DVD)I saw clerks two before I saw clerks one so I freely admit to not 'getting' some of the jokes. However I really did like the film! The characters were interesting and funny. Dante was sweet and an engaging character who really made a change thoughout the film and Randal really surprized me with character. I won't spoil it but his talk to Dante near the end was perfect, best part of the film. Becky, while crazy good looking, was down to earth was wasn't too unbeleavable a pull for Dante.
However while I did like the film on it's own terms I did cut it alot of slack because I had not seen the previous outting. I asumed that both Becky and Emma seem have not explanation for how they got into Dante and Randels lives other than throwaway lines. I asumed that both characters were from the first film and that is why they were never introdused and that I would find out later.
It is a minor snag but unaceptable considering how expertly Smith explained how Dante and Randel ended up changing jobs.
I still like the film but I would say If you love the first film alot you may not like this one as much as somone new to the franchise.
