Clerks II

Clerks-2-poster-3 It’s been 12 years since Kevin Smith became one of the last upstart filmmakers to squeak through the door of the Tarantino era of "independent" cinema with his overrated comedy "Clerks." Smith revisits his New Jersey mini-mart clerks Dante and Randal (Brian O’Halleron and Jeff Anderson) who return one morning to discover that their beloved Quick Stop has burned down. The geeky middle-aged best friends take jobs at a fast-food burger joint where their sexy manager Becky (Rosario Dawson) unintentionally tempts Dante away from his betrothed fiancée Emma (Jennifer Schwalbach Smith). Notably dubbed as the "gayest film ever" when it premiered at this year’s Cannes film festival, "Clerks II" is nonetheless a slight improvement on Smith’s original film, even if it is chock full of not-so-subtle homo-erotic subtext.

Rated R. 97 mins. (D+) (One Star)
