Clerks II (2006)


“…I got nothing.” – Silent Bob clerks_ii_

Number of Times Seen – 1 (20 Jun 2016)

Brief Synopsis – Dante and Randal are back, but now they work in a fast food restaurant.

My Take on it – For some reason that I’ll never be able to explain, despite really enjoying all of the movies in this series, I never saw this one and only now had the opportune pleasure to finally watch it for this marathon.

This truly is a great way to bookend the series.

The chemistry between Dante and Randal has always been one of the best teaming in the series and it was nice to see a real continuation of their story.

Becky, played by Rosario Dawson was a great edition to the team and her character is perhaps one of the best female characters of the View Askew series besides Alyssa (Joey Lauren Adams) in Chasing Amy (1997).

There is no doubt that some of the dialogue and situations here take things to the extreme, but it doesn’t matter because it’s so funny.

Jay and Silent Bob and once again been relegated back to supporting players where they belong and still manage to keep us smiling by all of their hi-jinx that never stops.

As much as I love this whole series, I’m quite glad that Writer/Director Kevin Smith ended it all here while things were still going strong.

Bottom Line – Great ending to an excellent series of films. So nice to get a real continuation of the lives of Dante and Randal.  Rosario Dawson’s character of Becky is one of the best female characters in the series besides Joey Lauren Adams in Chasing Amy (1997).  Definitely takes things to the real extreme, but still keeps us laughing along the way.  I liked how it all comes full circle, but am also glad that Smith quit this series while they were all still great. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – One of the things that most prompted Kevin Smith to make the film was a promise he made to friend Jason Mewes. If Mewes managed to stay off drugs he would be able to play the character of “Jay” one more time. Smith kept his promise. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy
