| a heaven sent movie for any real life clerk
I am very biased on the 9 rating i gave this movie. I could have even given it a 10 for I am, and for a long time has been a clerk. This movie to me was as moving and compelling as Passion of the Christ was for some Catholic people i know. In fact, in some moments, it even brought me to tears. The film is about a guy who works in a convenience store. He comes across the weirdest and most annoying customers that, ironically, don't shy too far from those in real life that I, myself have come across. This clerk is visited by his girlfriend and regularly visiting by his distraught and careless friend who is a clerk at the neighboring video store. If you aren't a clerk, and you watch this movie, remember this: This movie is as true to form as it gets. Some people claim it to be one of the best comedies of the past decade. I say it's the best Documentary of all time.

Trivia

Filmed at the same store in which director Kevin Smith was working at the time. As he was only allowed to film outside of business hours, and because bright enough lights couldn't be afforded, the plot included an explanation for the shutters being always down.


Quotes

Dante Hicks: Hello. What? No, I don't work today. I'm playing hockey at two.


Goofs

When Dante and Randal leave the wake, it is still light outside, yet when they get back to the store, it's very dark outside.


Crazy Credits

Initial Incompetent Sound Editor ... Scott Mosier Accomplished Sound Editor ... James von Buelow


Alternate Versions

The new Clerks X 10th Anniversary DVD contains the original first cut which is just over 10 minutes longer than the original. Here are some changes:

  • There are many extra shots here and there in the film.
  • There is a longer introduction to Jay and Silent Bob with Jay listing off all the drugs he's got.
  • The Chewlie's Gum representative's speech is much longer and without cuts.
  • Randal is seen shutting off the video monitor in the back.
  • When Dante and Randal run from the funeral, there is a much longer shot of mourners trying to run after them.
  • The fight scene is extended.
  • There is an alternate ending in which one of the clerks is shot dead.
  • The credits are slightly different and have no music over them.
  • Director Kevin Smith has a non-Silent Bob cameo after the end credits.
