For a used copy, the quality of the item was amazing and the film itself needs no introduction, it was truly the funniest film I have seen all year. Buy it now and forever be amazed.

So amusing, I strongly recommend this to anyone, particularly suitable for young adults (16-24 years) and those who have worked in the retail sector but most people can find it funny.

Imagine your name is Kevin Smith, you're about 21, you work in a video store and you decide to make your own film. Here is the result. Witty, zany, outrageous, foul-mouthed, black & white and well worth two hours of your time. It's not a perfect film, it has a couple of bits that don't work, but it's deservedly a classic.
"Clerks" is the day in a life of two losers, both determined to break free but doomed to loserdom. The action centres on the convenience store where a succession of grumpy, demanding and middle-aged customers run the gauntlet of the loser-heroes' idea of service, while girlfriends ramp up the chaos and the neighbourhood druggies play a foolish chorus. Each comic episode builds towards a gross-out finale that wraps the losers' day up to a perfect finale.
This film is basically about loser teenagers in dead end jobs. If you are a loser teenager in a dead end job, you will still find this hilarious, but you may not get the joke.

For everyone who has ever loved movies there are some that just hit the spot. Off the top of my head Leon, This is Spinal Tap, Motny Python's Quest For The Holy Grail, Good Will Hunting and Clerks hit mine.
I like to think that most people who would watch these films would appreciate them for what they are. None more so than Clerks.
It's not meant to be the greatest movie ever made. The cinematography isn't meant to be jaw-dropping. The grainy scenes are secondary to what is arguably the best dialogue of any film in the 90s.
Deep thinking and emotions are to be left at the opening credits, along with most of your morales and social conscience.
This is a film about people with very strong opinions about things of no consequence. Topics include 'Star Wars', 'Oral Sex' and 'Getting High'.
I think the best way of describing Clerks is that it's slightly askew of normal cinema and it does what it does brilliantly.
It's funny, moving (in a non-spiritual way), deep (if you can get beyond the rantings and ravings!) and so much more than the sum of it's parts.
Each character is memorable and each scene delightful.
There are layers to this film that require repeat viewing.
A modern masterpiece of wit and repartee.
A divine debut.

This is a great film that is really funny and well worth watching perhaps not worth buying on blu-ray though.

Jay and Silent Bob although funny characters were never strong enough to have their own film -- and Kevin Smith's earlier movies, like Clerks, has them doing what they do best -- supporting roles.
The movie has very little plot, and that's what makes it so great -- it is about the interaction between the characters, and how at the end of the day they will be no better off than the start.
The dialogue makes this potentially mediocre film great -- so what if it isn't in colour? Would colour greatly enhance the movie? No, it isn't about lavish sets -- it's about two ordinary guys, living their lives.
Yes, Dante is incredibly annoying, and Randall isn't much better, but that's half the appeal -- it takes talent to write and create characters that are so unlikable that they have such a strong appeal.
It's always difficult to say what Kevin Smith's best film is, since they are all so different -- but if you were a fan of the pointless and inane "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" you are probably better suited to renting Navy Seals than buying this movie. If you want great dialogue, a ridiculous plot and strong characters this is a movie you must own. No collection is complete without Clerks, and better yet -- buy the DVD for the alternative ending.

Well,after searching for ages for a decent copy of this film,the search was absolutely worth it.As with most people,after seeing all of the other Kevin Smith films (Chasing Amy,Mallrats,Dogma,Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back) i was expecting 'Clerks' to be as zany and completely off the wall as they were,and although a bit miffed at first,i was completely won over by the end of the opening credits.This film demonstrates just why Kevin Smith is credited as one of our best known and loved cult directors.Way before the glitzyness of J&SBSB,this film is in black and white,but if you really watch it and pay attention you'll find that this shows the quality of good film-making that makes you forget that its not colour and just enjoy the film for what it is,and that is great.
The characters are given great depth and are believable,keeping that great connection going that you yourself can link up by watching the other 'Jay & Silent Bob Films'.
I wont divulge the whole plot or even parts,but know that the 'classiness in no class' approach of this film sets it far apart from any other of the Kevin Smith films,thus making it not 'just another Jay & Silent Bob film'.
Watch this film,then buy it.
Whichever order is fine.
