Starring: Jeff Anderson, Brian O’Halloran, Rosario Dawson, Trevor Fehrman, Jennifer Schwalbach, and Jason Mewes. Cameo’s by Ben Affleck, Jason Lee, and Wanda Sykes.
Director: Kevin Smith.
MPAA Rating : R (Pervasive sexual and crude content including aberrant sexuality, strong language and some drug material.)
Plot: Loser clerks Dante (O’Halloran) and Randall (Anderson) have moved from the Quick Stop after it burned down and are now working in a Mooby Burger. When Dante’s forthcoming marriage threatens to end their friendship, Randall vows to give Dante the one thing he’s never seen: a donkey show. Along the way, Dante discovers his true love (Dawson).
Notes: Filled with the usual fast paced witty dialogue that Kevin Smith’s films are known for, Clerks II serves it up in a bite size combo. This is, to date, the final film in the View Askew library of films. This one is better than the first Clerks in terms of production values, (it’s more polished), but lacks in the characterization department. Some of the actors seem wooden, (particularly O’Halloran). This does not overly detract from the film, however, as the rest of the cast more than makes up for the shortcoming.
My Rating: Very good. See it if you’ve seen the others. Three Goons out of Five.
