| 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

Of the 50 actors credited, only two had at least one film credit before appearing in this movie (Gary Stern and Mitch Cohen). The other 48 made their first on screen appearance in this movie, most of them would become regular faces in many 'Kevin Smith' (I) films while others would only make this film.


Quotes

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


Goofs

In the scene where a customer is complaining to Dante about Randal being late, there are 7 videotapes (6 on the counter and one in the customers hand). A few minutes later when Randal arrives, Dante hands him only 3 tapes to return to the video store.


Crazy Credits

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

  • 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.
