kevin smith just had an erection at his home right now
This is one of those movies that thematically and stylistically has become such a part of our entertainment lexicon that what was once fresh and exciting can feel boring and over-done, even though it was done here first. It's hard to look back on and understand why it was such a big deal. Nevertheless, I think I caught a glimpse.
Meh. I get that this was very influential and whatnot, but sometimes watching a Kevin Smith movie just feels like verbal masturbation. Everyone talks at the same pace, and says the same things in the same quippy, smug voice. Also, why is everyone Canadian? Overall, I can tell when watching that this was made for people who want to quote it to their friends. Not bad, not as great as everyone says.
Yeah. Silent Bob, your a rude motherfucker, you know that? But you're cute as hell. I could go down on you, suck you, line up three other guys, make like a circus seal.
it's a shame kevin smith didn't died after doing Clerks. he would live in eternity as an OK guy who did a good and funny movie instead of passing as "Kevin Smith". i wanted to say "incredible douche" but "Kevin Smith" is worst
Toronto film fest 94 10am, Kevin Smith is introduced and jovially states 'don't you people have jobs'.90 minutes later came back to an enthusiastic, amused crowd who realized they just saw something special. Great q&a followed. Unfortunately no director has disappointed more since a brilliant debut with each feature being less than the one below save the great "Chasing Amy". "I'm not even supposed to be here today"
fantastic movie for what it is, what the budget was, the windows they had to actually shoot the film, etc. it really is the dialogue that carries it. jeff anderson is fucking perfect as randall. its great to see all the characters that came from the mini-success this film had. i love kevin smith; movies, podcasts, Q&As, whatever. dudes funny, and very honest. its nice to hear someone so open in everything they do.
The reason I found "Clerks" such a culturally relevant film is not because of the boost it gave to the independent cinema; I think it is an important film because it spoke to a public that was often ignored by the mainstream media: the underachievers, the idiots savants, the guys with high intelligence wasted on pop culture. This film told them, it's okay, keep on talking about "Star Wars", you're not alone.
People have recommended this film to me over the years on the basis of the dialogue being great.I finally watched it,needless to say,the dialogue wasn't impressive at all. The acting was weak, characters were uninteresting etc etc. I think this movies rep is mainly held up by nostalgia.
