Lucky you.  I'm stuck at work. :/   I'm a big fan of the original title, and the early reviews are pretty positive.  I'll probably see it on Saturday morning or Sunday morning.  

Anyone else worship at the altar of Mooby the Golden Calf?

I look forward to it even though I can't believe they made it.

I still like Mallrats best.

That's my personal favorite too with Dogma a close second.

Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be seeing Clerks 2 in the theaters as my girlfriend isn't exactly a Kevin Smith fan.  frown

I loved Clerks; one of my favorite comedies ever.  And despite my enjoyment for Chasing Amy, Mallrats and Dogma, I'm still mildly annoyed that I sat through Jersey Girl, and PISSED that I paid money to see Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

With Kevin Smiths last couple, I'll be waiting for DVD on this one.  Not quite sure what was left to tell in this story?

You lucky bastard  :wink: I wish I could see this. It makes me even happier than Joel Sigel walked out on this movie.

I really enjoyed clerks, and I loved chasing amy but this..well it stunk. Everything seemed forced to me, and the dialogue while pretty raunchy wasn't funny, no one in the theater laughed at least. Some funny moments, but aside from those few I wouldn't recommend it. Less like Clerks and more like Jay and Silent Bob strike back.

Sorry, I hope you guys enjoy it though.

There, I said it. :oops:

I finally saw this last night.

It was about what I'd expected.  There were a few great moments, but a lot of the movie felt forced.  Some of the dialogue seemed like it was just Kevin Smith daring the ratings board to give him an NC-17 rating, and fell flat for me (I'm no prude, but if you are going for raunchy, please make it funny too?).  I did like how it offered some closure to their story, but it isn't something that the first movie particularly left needing.

And looking back on the thread, I could have just given Ascendent's review a +1...

I thought it was funny, and I'm not just saying that to avoid the curse  Tongue

I actually liked it quite a bit.  The 'Pillow Pants' bit may be one of the best sequences in any of his movies.

+1.  I'm not sure I've ever laughed as hard in a movie as I did during that sequence.

Just picked up the DVD over the weeked and watched it a couple more times.  I really enjoyed it overall, although it wasn't as good as the original.

I laughed my ass off. I love Kevin Smith's characters, and this movie fit right in with the other Jersey movies he's done. Really enjoyed it.

If, however, I were to complain about one thing, it's that the tone of the movie seemed to flip-flop a lot. I thought the gross-out humour was great - Smith is a funny, sick little man - and the character moments were great too ... but they felt strange being in the same flick. Truthfully, I wish Clerks II had been closer to Chasing Amy in execution, where you can still have a dirty mind and naughty jokes, but have them secondary to the actual story, characters, themes, etc. Chasing Amy is his best movie, in my oppinion, because the jokes don't take you out of the "reality" of the movie, while many of the gags - bachelor party!!!! - completely kill any suspension of disbelief.

I'd still recommend the movie though.
