So who's going to one-star it because KEVIN SMITH?
Jeff Fries
His career could have ended here

revdrew
I still like Mallrats the best, Jeremy London and Clare Forlani be damned.

Man, fuck all the Kevin Smith haters. He's not much more of a hack than Woody Allen, really.

Camonk
I'd have been happier if Brian O'Hallaran's career had ended here. He is just awful.

Jeff Fries
"He's not much more of a hack than Woody Allen, really."

Man watch some Woody Allen movies sometime. Or no, don't, I'll summarize: 90% of them are bad, empty, feature-length hommages to the foreign films that he likes. If Kevin Smith spends the next 20-30 years doing arty (I guess artless in his case) pastiches of The Lion in Winter and Star Wars then yes maybe he could sink low enough to have a legion of defenders in France.

Anybody who didn't see this wouldn't get the joke at the end of Clerks 2.
Camonk
People made it to the end of Clerks 2?

Dude, Clerks 2 was a fucking masterpiece compared to Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Also, Zack and Miri Make a Porno is very funny, like I watched it 6 times within a month and enjoyed it.

Camonk
Clerks 2 is also a masterpiece to having poop thrown in my face. That doesn't make it good.

kiint
they made a second Clerks movie?

I guess Chasing Amy is my favorite.

In a perfect world the animated Clerks would have had all of the dirty jokes from the movie, and it would have had a longer run.

For me the original Clerks was good though I thought over rated, Mall Rats is funny but no more then a 3 starer, Dogma I loved when it came out, it was my fave film as a teenager but the love has faded with age. Chasing Amy is fantastic and I don't think he'll ever surpass it, got to admit I also loved Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

However much as I like Kevin Smith's original work his later stuff has been pretty crappy. Jersey Girl was just passable, Clerks 2 a couple of funny momments but mostly gay, Zack and Miri make a Porno...... a good first half then utterly, utterly destoryed by the hammy, over the top piece of shit 'romance.' I actually left the theatre pissed off I paid to see it.

Of course, you realize you destroyed and credibility in your critiques by calling Jersey Girl anything but horrible, don't you?

Since everyone else os throwing their opinion in, I always liked Kevin Smith, even though he's put quite a bit of crap out.

Mallrats could have started at a funeral and used that to become as good as Clerks, if the humor was tasteless enough. If Kevin Smith is around long enough, like John Hughes, he will throw us some winners along with with the incredibly terrible sequels.
Witty_Pop_Culture_Reference
This. I don't watch Kevin Smith movies expecting Kurosawa. I expect stupid funny, gross funny, roll my eyes funny, then I go on with my day without complaining that it didn't change my perspective on everything in the world and the human condition.

Back to the matter at hand, though, this is an obnoxious ending. Rather than everyone going on with their life as usual, they have someone come in and kill Dante because OMG UR LIFE IS WASTED!1!! - it isn't a matter of audiences preferring a happy ending in this case, it's about sudden and unwarranted pseudoart in your movie that's largely about dicks.
Caminante Nocturno
Clerks is a bad movie.
