| I've always wanted to be the assistant manager of a convenience store
Funny, fast paced story of an assortment of pathetic losers, their dreams, girlfriends, and go nowhere lives. I laughed all the way through at the give and take between the two lead characters and their stupid friends and lovers. Both intelligent, sometimes even sagely; the two men lead lives of loneliness and boredom leading to a careless attitude about their jobs which, in time, will become their position on all things unless they choose to reverse the course they are following. I was groaning with glee as the store clerk had it out with his lady friend over how many men she had fellatio with. I liked the way the film was broken up into titled parts, each comprising a small story within the tale. Zany, well worth the price of entry.

Trivia

The film's shoestring budget is part of the reason it was shot in black and white. A number of different types of lighting were used, and this would have required a lot of post production to resolve issues related to the varying color temperatures. With black and white, this isn't a problem.


Quotes

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


Goofs

After Randal sells the cigarettes to the little girl, Dante remarks that all the prices end in nine, yet all the price tags in the shot end in five.


Crazy Credits

In the Australian Video Version after the Credits a Dolby Sign is shown and then the Tape goes blank. If you wait, after about 20 seconds into the Blank, there is the Trailer for "Clerks." ending with the statement "OPEN FOR BUSINESS THIS OCTOBER".


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.
