A friend rented this for us to watch one bored weeknight, I had my doubts since I am not a huge Kevin Smith fan. I never watched the original Clerks, but this movie had me laughing throughout. Some good references to some of my favorite movies and had a pretty kickass soundtrack (listen for Q Lazzarus' "Goodbye Horses" classic song during one hilarious scene). I've read others call this Smith's "softest" film to date, but hey, I enjoyed it. Recommended for a good laugh without too much thinking.
