Storyline:

Clerks II takes up where Clerks left off. The opening scene shows Randal opening the grocery shop that he and Dante are running. As he pulls up the safety gate, the audience is shown the shop ablaze, the fire completely gutting the store. Randal's infuriating question to Dante: "Did I leave the coffee pot on again?" is followed by his equally annoying declaration that he has now destroyed the only place where he can get laid. The two now find employment at Mooby's, a fast-food restaurant.

Dante, fed up with living in New Jersey, reminds Randal that he and his fiancÚ, Emma, are getting married and moving to Florida. The ever cantankerous and hostile Randal, fearfull of the disruption in their friendship which the move will cause, constantly bugs Dante to forget the marriage and the move.
Dante also has to deal with the store manager, Becky, with whom he has a supposedly platonic relationship (although they have had sex in the past). Becky keeps saying that she is not interested in any kind of romantic relationship but when Dante suddenly reveals that he is in love with her and wants to break off the engagement with Emma, after some false hesitation, Becky reveals that she is also in love with him. As one would expect, the scene in which Dante does tell Emma that the engagement is off is uncomfortable.

Clerks II introduces a new character, Elias, a crew member at Mooby's fast food joint who is religious and sexually naive, and is the butt of many sexual jokes/gags. Elias' innocence makes his character very sympathetic and Kevin Smith has written some very clever and funny dialogue in the scenes between him and the mean-spirited Randal. To me, these scenes were the funniest, contrasting Elias' nice-guy image with Randal's bullying one.

I don't know why but Kevin seems hell-bent on including the self-important Ben Affleck in all of his films. Thank goodness that in this film, his appearance is brief, with a one-line cameo.

The movie announces that it is presenting "a new and improved" Jay and Silent Bob. All I see are two not so new and funny assholes. In Kevin's other films, Jay's profanity is kept to a reasonable and very funny degree. Here, his profanity is obnoxious and stupid. But as stated in the Trivia section of this review, Kevin told Jason Mewes that if he stayed off drugs, he would be able to play the character of "Jay" one more time.

Bladerunnerrr, in his June 5, 2006 review, points out that in Clerks II, Kevin has "pushed the limits of the humor we have come to expect from him. I think the shock value that makes you say NO THEY DIDN'T! is a valuable part of the equation."

And yes, as he points out, the film does push the limit of what we can see on film [in America] and surprisingly was able to get shown in theaters.

One scene involves bestiality with a donkey; it's funny, and I seriously hope that "no animals were harmed during the making of this film."

Another scene involves outrageous very NON-PC racial terms used REPEATEDLY, including the "N-word". These slurs are spoken by Randal's character and very cleverly written by Kevin. The response of a black couple present in the store while Randal goes on and on about "porch monkeys" is preciously right-on!

Bladerunnerrr's review again: "Finally, the movie really does have a story without being preachy, we're treated to known characters without it being a nostalgia-fest (for instance, Jay and Bob are in their signature places in front of the Quick Stop ... [and] Bob's discovered a way to keep Jay's mind off of drugs. Fans of Jay will NOT be disappointed.)"

No, teenage and young man fans will not be disappointed. But I was. I was introduced to Jay and Silent Bob other films by my daughter AFTER I had already seen Clerks. To be sure, DOGMA and CHASING AMY were Kevin's masterpieces - and so I expected to be entertained by all of his films, and I have managed, over the course of several months, to see practically every one of them. Imagine my shock when viewing MALLRATS AND JAY and SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK [both reviewed on this website]. What was Kevin thinking? True, each of them contained a few sequences that made me laugh a little. But overall. these two movies, pandering to the "cocky-doody" fans hit a low point in my estimation.

I have read that 3 people walked out at the screening, most notably, Joel Siegel, film critic for Good Morning America [see the Trivia reference below].

But Bladerunnerrr is very positive about Clerks II: "This movie was everything I hoped it would be. It is especially (or maybe even primarily) for fans of Kevin Smith's 'ViewAskewniverse'. That basic story is weaved between the plot devices, smart dialogue and gritty or 'pushing the limits' humor we come to expect from Kevin Smith."

So I thought, ok, we have to be back on solid ground. I just expected a repeat of the wit and smart zaniness of Clerks. But here Kevin just tried too hard to top the original, and succeeded in showing what many of us know - most sequels suck! But thank goodness, we are spared scenes involving special abilities, creatures from the underworld, or new messiahs. At least Kevin has the grace to stick to characters who are just real people to whom we can relate.

So what DID I like about Clerks II? The scenes between Dante and Becky are sweet and Elias' pious remarks about women and sex are funny high points.

Finally, no matter how disappointed I was with Clerks II, I just can't help but admire Kevin Smith, and as tedious as Jay and Silent Bob can get sometimes, I always anticipate watching them do their SHTIK. Most of the time they succeed in making me laugh.

And this: "Clerks III is dead; new Jay And Silent Bob movie coming instead"
February 9, 2017 - Den of Geek.

KUDOS to Rosario Dawson whom we have seen in roles of hardened women; Death Proof, Grindhouse,Sin City,Men in Black II, Jessica Jones, Justice League Dark; she plays Becky so sweetly that I didn't even recognize her.
KUDOS to Brian O'Halloran as Dante; ever since I first saw Clerks, I have loved his character, a typically nice guy always being put upon by his less than honorable friends.
KUDOS to Jeff Anderson as Randal; this young actor steals the outrageous scenes; in spite of the fact that his character is a prime slimeball, the lines that Kevin has handed to him just make you want to watch him and hope that at some point, he will emerge as not such a bad guy, which [spoiler] he does at the end
KUDOS to Trevor Fehrman as Elias; his portrayal as a basically clean cut innocent contrasts nicely with the raunchiness of some of the other characters
KUDOS to Jay and Silent Bob; Yes, I know I have knocked them in this review but what would ViewAskewniverse movies be without them?














Did You Know?

Trivia:
Was given an 8-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival
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.
Although most Kevin Smith films have been interlocked with recurring characters, locations and themes, as well as many references to each other, this is the first real "sequel" made to any of the films.
The Quick Stop is an actual functioning convenience store and was burned down with special effects only. The shop remains in Leonardo, NJ. It is only 4 miles from the Atlantic Ocean off of Rt 36.
Kevin Smith's daughter Harley Quinn Smith is the little girl that Dante waves to in the window of the restaurant.
Kevin Smith auctioned off a walk on role on the film for funds to go to the Red Cross for aid to Hurricane Katrina victims. The final bid was $16,000 which Smith matched to
In both Mallrats (1995) and Dogma (1999), Ben Affleck's characters complain about being gawked at. In this film, Affleck's character is credited as "Gawking Guy".
Originally Matt Damon was supposed to play the role of Lance Dowds. However, Damon was also filming The Good Shepherd (2006) at the same time and couldn't make it. So Jason Lee took over the role during a day off from his show My Name Is Earl (2005).
Art Imitates Life - In his book "Silent Bob Speaks," Kevin Smith mentions that his wife Jennifer Schwalbach Smith hates New Jersey with a vengeance. In the movie, Dante's fiancÚ Emma (played by Jennifer Schwalbach Smith) has nothing nice to say about NJ and cannot wait to leave the state. She even goes so far as to make a cake that says "Florida Forever, NJ Never" written on it, with the circled and crossed out "NJ" abbreviation.
Ben Affleck's character was originally supposed to just roll his eyes and walk away when Dante and Emma started making out on the counter. The character's one line, "That's not very hygienic," was ad-libbed by Affleck.
Several actresses were considered for the role of Becky. Among them were Sarah Silverman (who didn't want to play a love interest, but noting that she would have played Randal in a heartbeat), Rachel Weisz (who the filmmakers considered too difficult to get hold of), Bryce Dallas Howard (who was already, albeit secretly, attached to Lady in the Water (2006)), Liv Tyler (who did not feel comfortable saying much of the dialog), and Ellen Pompeo (who could not do the movie because of her commitment to Grey's Anatomy (2005)). Rosario Dawson, considered a long shot, finally agreed to do the movie, mainly to see the filming of the donkey show.
In the original Clerks (1994), no cigarette brands are ever named, although many packs are sold throughout the film. At the end of this movie, the Quick Stop only carries "Nails" cigarettes, a fictional brand shown in some of Kevin Smith's previous movies.
The song "1979" by Smashing Pumpkins is featured in the movie. The music video for "1979" was filmed in the same convenience store used in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001).
The Moobys used in the film is a closed Burger King.
During the planning on the original incarnation of this movie back in 1999, was to feature a love stricken Randal, who instead of Dante, was going to be learning to dance/falling in love atop a roof at the Seaside Heights boardwalk, with all those dancers treading the boards below. The dance partner/love interest Kevin Smith had in mind for him was Alanis Morissette as the original Becky.
This is the sixth film in Kevin Smith's intricately interconnected View Askewniverse series (the others being Clerks (1994), Mallrats (1995), Chasing Amy (1997), Dogma (1999) and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001)). The movies are all linked by characters, themes and events and each contains numerous references to the others.
The film opens and closes in black and white, an homage to the original Clerks (1994) in which the entire film was shot in black and white.
Dante paints Becky's toe nails. In Clerks (1994) Dante paints the finger nails of his then-girlfriend Veronica.
The shot of the cup scooping ice from a urinal was directed by Jason Mewes.
Clerks (1994) and Clerks II (2006) both end with songs by Soul Asylum. "Can't Even Tell" in Clerks and "Misery" in Clerks II.
The word "fuck" and its variations are used 136 times thought out this movie.
In the scene where Becky decides to teach Dante how to dance in the roof of the restaurant, she calls Jay and Silent Bob from the roof to tell them to play some music. Jay and Silent Bob can't figure out where the voice is coming from, so Jay replies: "Lord?" This is a reference to Kevin Smith's previous film, Dogma, in which God is revealed to be a woman in the end of the film.
There are 16 uses of the term "ass to mouth". The first 14 alone are in the sequence that begins with Randal saying the 17-year-old girls like the practice.
During the first day of shooting, Jeff Anderson (Randal) was supposed to deliver a line about the office smelling like nail polish, but accidentally said "What smells like shoe polish?"
Buddy Christ (Dogma 1999) on jays t shirt
The idea of the pillow pants troll was conceived when Kevin Smith was teasing Jason Mewes about why a woman wouldn't sleep with him, and he decided to put a reference to the troll in the movie. Harvey Weinstein saw a rough cut of the movie, and strongly suggested that they show the troll. They planned to have a scene showing the troll inside a giant constructed vagina, with Mewes playing the character. They were ultimately able to convince Weinstein that it was a bad idea, and the scene was scrapped, to the disappointment of Jason Mewes (who wanted to keep the set that they would have constructed for the scene).
The film takes place from 2005 to 2007.
Brian O'Halloran (Dante Hicks), Jeff Anderson (Randal Graves), Jason Mewes (Jay), Kevin Smith (Silent Bob) and Grace Smith (Milk Maid) are the only actors to reprise their roles from Clerks (1994).
Spoilers:
The trivia items below may give away important plot points.
A scene was deleted where Jay informs Randall and Dante that he and Bob have the money to lend them to buy the Quick Stop, he explains that the money is what they were paid for the Jay and Silent Bob movie - a reference to Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001).
Joel Siegel, film critic for Good Morning America (1975), walked out 40 minutes into a screening of the film. In his own words: "First movie I've walked out of in thirty fucking years!". The straw that broke the camel's back was the scene where two of the characters discuss hiring a woman to perform sex acts with a donkey.
The last line of the movie "Today is the first day of the rest of our lives." is a paraphrase from the famous Abbie Hoffman quote: "Today is the first day of the rest of your life - make the most of it."

Goofs:
Continuity:
During the scene when Randal, Dante, and Emma are talking about Emma's large clit, Dante's cross necklace disappears and reappears between shots.
During the go-kart scene, we see a quick shot of Dante wearing sunglasses. The rest of the time he has no sunglasses on.
Randal's shirt collar moves position/shape while they're driving back from the go-kart track.
The Hobbit Lover's head moves from down to up when Elias whispers to himself "One ring to rule them all." In the next shot the Hobbit Lover's head moves from down to up again.
Dante's hair changes significantly when Becky sits down to talk to him about the wedding and dancing at the reception, and then again later throughout other scenes.
Becky's bra strap and shirt strap gap in the front and meet in the back during the scene where she's asking Dante if he's afraid to get married (most easily viewed during the over-her-shoulder shots). The straps align and are on top of each other when she leans forward when Dante tells her that he can't dance. All subsequent over-her-shoulder shots still have the straps in the same position as before she leaned forward.
In the beginning of the movie right after Randal gets in Dante's car and they're talking about Dante leaving for Florida, watch Randal's right hand. There's a smudge on his palm that keeps disappearing and reappearing.
When Elias is explaining to Randal why he's still a virgin (the gnome named 'Pillow Pants'), Elias's hair (his bangs) change from neat and swept under his Mooby hat to scraggly as the shot changes back and forth through the whole scene.
Crew or equipment visible:
Near the beginning of the film, when Dante makes one last stop at the burned down Quick Stop, you can see the shadow of a crew member on the lower-right corner of Dante's car.
Errors in geography:
When Elias is being driven to work, an OCTA (Orange County Transit Authority) bus is clearly visible.
In the Go-Cart Scene, there are California desert mountains visible in the background. The movie is supposed to take place in New Jersey.
Factual errors:
When Dante first shows up at the store and lifts the lock to open the metal shutters, he doesn't sense anything amiss inside. When he lifts the shutter to find a violent inferno inside, he closes the door with his bare hands and then lifts it again. If the store were really burning so violently, the metal shutters and lock would have certainly been too hot to be touched.
Revealing mistakes
When Jay and Silent Bob first appear you can see two people walk past the window to the left in the background before the van passes. A second later after the van passes and Jay and Silent Bob appear, the two people in the window disappear.
Several times Dante is supposed to be driving his car but you can clearly see the shift lever is in park.
When Dante lifts the steel door at the Quick Stop, while it is on fire, should have been so hot that he would have burnt his hand.
Spoilers:
The goof item below may give away important plot points.
Errors in geography:
When the fire department shows up during the donkey show, the LBFD seen on the fire truck stands for "Leonardo Borough," the location the film is set in. However, the fire department of Leonardo is part of the Middletown Fire Department and therefore the trucks in the movie should have MTFD written on them

Randal Graves: What racism, "porch monkeys?"
*
Dante Hicks: Have you become so embittered that you now feel the need to attack the handicapped?
Randal Graves: What handicap? They guy's just in a wheelchair, it's not like he's Anne Frank or something.
Dante Hicks: Anne Frank?
Randal Graves: Yeah, Anne Frank. The chick that was all duhhh, till the miracle worker showed up and knocked some smarts into her.

Randal Graves: What the fuck's Pillow Pants?
Elias: Pillow Pants is a little troll who lives in her pussy.
[Randal stares]
Elias: Pillow Pants is her pussy troll?
[scoffs]
Elias: Duh. You know how every girl's parents put a pussy troll in them when the girls are young, to keep them from having premarital sex?
Randal Graves: ...Sure.
Elias: Well Myra's is named Pillow Pants. And so even though she totally wants to have sex with me, Myra says if I put my... thing in her, Pillow Pants will bite it off. So, I gotta wait until Pillow Pants gets peed out of her body on her 21st birthday before we can have sex.
Randal Graves: [floored] And Myra told you this?
Elias: Boyfriends and girlfriends talk to each other about sex stuff Randal. You'd know this if you ever had a girlfriend.
Randal Graves: Have you and Myra even kissed yet?
Elias: We would have already if it wasn't for Listerfiend.
Randal Graves: [beat] Listerfiend is her mouth troll, isn't it?
Elias: [shakes head] Women.
*
Randal Graves: Since when did porch monkey suddenly become a racial slur?
Dante Hicks: When ignorant racists started saying it a hundred years ago!
Randal Graves: Oh, bullshit! My grandmother used to call me a porch monkey all the time when I was a kid because I'd sit on the porch and stare at my neighbors!
Dante Hicks: Despite the fact that your grandmother might've used it as a term of endearment for you, it's still a racial slur! It'd be like your grandmother calling you a little kike!
Randal Graves: Oh, it is not. Plus, my grandmother had nothing but the utmost respect for the Jewish community. When I was a kid she told me to always treat the Jewish kids with the utmost respect, or they'd put the sheni curse on me.
Dante Hicks: What the fuck, man?
Randal Graves: What?
Dante Hicks: Sheni's a racial slur, too!
Randal Graves: Oh, it is not.
Dante Hicks: Yes, it is!
Randal Graves: She never called any Jews 'sheni', she just used to say sheni curse a lot. It was cute!
Dante Hicks: It wasn't cute! It was racist!
Randal Graves: I disagree, man, she was just an old timer, that's the way people talked back then! Didn't mean they were racist... Although my grandmother did refer to a broken beer bottle once as a nigger knife... You know, come to think of it, my grandmother was kind of a racist.
Dante Hicks: You think?
Randal Graves: Well,I still don't think porch monkey should be considered a racial term. I mean, I've always used it to describe lazy people, not lazy black people! I think if we really tried, we could re-claim it, and save it.
Dante Hicks: It can't be saved, Randal! The sole purpose for its creation, the only reason it exists in the first place, is to disparage an entire race! And even if it could be saved, you can't save it because you're not black!
Randal Graves: Well listen to you! Telling me I can't do something because of the color of my skin! You're the racist! I'm taking it back, you watch!
[customers enter]
Randal Graves: Hey, what can I get for you, you little porch monkey?
[beat]
Randal Graves: Its cool, I'm taking it back.
*
Jay: You know, sometimes I wish I'd done a little more with my life instead of hangin' out in front of places, selling weed and shit. Like maybe be an animal doctor. Why not me? I like seals and shit. Or maybe be an astronaut. Yeah. And be the first motherfucker to see a new galaxy. Or find a new alien life form... And fuck it. And people would be like "There he goes. Homeboy fucked a martian once."
*
Becky: [on the roof about to teach Dante how to dance] Hey, Twelve-Step!
[Jay looks around confused]
Becky: Jay!
Jay: [looks up] Lord?
Becky: Up here, jackass.
Jay: [moves so he can see her] What the fuck are you doing up there? Yo, if you're gonna jump, let me get a crack at that pussy first! Lemme find out.
Becky: You still got your boombox?
[Silent Bob comes out with the boombox]
Becky: Play something and turn it way up.
[disappears, then comes back]
Becky: Something danceable!
Dante Hicks: Up here? Are you serious? You're gonna teach me to dance up here?
Becky: What? You want I should do it in front of all the customers?
Dante Hicks: What customers?
Becky: Shut up. Come over here. Okay, get ready for the music. You feel it... here. Here it comes.
[Heavy Metal begins to play. Jay and Silent Bob headbang and dance furiously]
Becky: Something a little less demonic, please?

Crazy Credits
The list of names in the closing credits is (as of 2015) the longest in history. Kevin Smith included the names of everyone who had joined his "friends network" on MySpace, stretching the end credits to a staggering 163,070 names.
After the regular credits roll, an animated View Askew logo plays, followed by a list of the Clerks II MySpace friends.
One of Jay's lines has been repeated over the tag end of the closing credits of all the previous "Askewniverse" films. With this film, instead, a line from the Sexy Stud gets repeated, where he says, "Oh, shit, not again. Gotta finish. Hey!"
The director would like to thank: God - He who keeps my heart beating, and makes me appreciative, and scared.
