    Synopsis


    Clerks
    When Dante Hicks (Brian O'Halloran) is reluctantly put in charge of the Quick Stop market on his day off, he tries, though half-heartedly, to perform his minimum-wage duties as efficiently as possible. This gets tough amidst the on-going fight with his girlfriend, Veronica (Marilyn Ghigliotti), and his attempt to get back together with his ex-girlfriend, Caitlyn Bree (Lisa Spoonhauer). Meanwhile, his friend and alter ego Randall (Jeff Anderson) is working behind the counter of the adjacent video store -- at least when he feels like it. Randall's unabashed disdain of his place of employment, a long with his self-admitted hatred towards its customers is a sharp contrast to Dante's feeble attempts at the niceties of customer service. Much of the film consists of Randall and Dante's criticism of their customers, their lives, and the world in general. Clerks, filmed in black-and-white on a budget of only $27,000, began the career of writer director Kevin Smith, who would go on to make Mallrats (1995), Chasing Amy (1997), Dogma (1999), and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      SYNPOSIS: Dante (Brian O'Halloran) is called in to cover a shift at his New Jersey convenience store on his day off. His friend Randal (Jeff Anderson) helps him pass the time, neglecting his video-store customers next door to hang out in the Quick Stop. The uneventful day is disrupted by news that one of Dante's ex-girlfriends has died. After attending her memorial service, Dante muses over staying with current girlfriend Veronica (Marilyn Ghigliotti) or reuniting with ex Caitlin (Lisa Spoonhauer). Again usedto own this on VHS and DVD. Still have yet to watch Clerks II as of this writing. Part of the View Askewniverse.

      CLERKS: Anything but stale on BLU-RAY!!!

      Kevin Smith's first classic CLERKS....What fond memories I have of laughing at Jay & Silent Bob getting down out front of the convenience store....and the overdue adult titles....hilarious! The 15th Anniversary release of CLERKS on Blu-Ray is surprisingly much more refreshing than previous DVD re-(and re)releases...Fine detail is crisp and even the grainy scenes are fluent in contrast and rich blacks in shadow scenes are very nice on the eyes as well. Voices are very clear and follow the Dolby Digital Surround Speakers very nicely...Recommended!

      Doesn't feel like a movie. Not in a bad way but in a way that's like wow I have gone though the same thing or I know someone like that. I enjoy the movie for it's understandment. There is no iconic villain or super hero but if your looking for a down to earth yet surprisingly good movie this is the best one! The only issue with it is it leaves with no answer. They start off with a problem that's never resolved. However if you enjoy cliffhangers and movies where they surprise you this a movie I recommend. Kevin Smith at his best!

      I love this movie even though it is not done with the greatest quality or cameras. That black & white film gives it a special vibe and feeling. The music , great, the cast, great , the vibe, idea, life scene they are trying to represent, they have done it the best way possible and it is as close as real as possible. it represented pretty well those days and the way youth (at least some of the youth) used to think , live, etc. I just love it (even if others say I am wrong. I don't care). I have a blast watching it.

      Great Movie, Mediocre Extras

      Many of the extras are ported over from the Clerks X release from 2004, including a fascinating "First Cut" version of the film with optional video commentary. The vintage (and embarrassing) laserdisc commentary on the theatrical version is also present as well as the shockingly downer of an original ending. The only real new extra is a making-of from "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back", which technically kind of fits in the Clerks world, but otherwise an odd choice. Movie is still hilarious after all these years.

      Ok so this was the premiere cinematic masterpiece of filmmaker Kevin Smith, now known as the voice of a generation (or at least one from a certain area of the country...). It is excellent in its imperfections, fantastic in spite of and because of its flaws. Watch without judgement for the typical measures of "quality", and you will find a film that showcases the angst of Generation X in a way that rings true like no movie before or since. So yeah, just buy it because it's awesome.

      an interested film from the mind of kevin smith. i remember seeing this movie back in the day. even though it is in black and white- it still is worth the watch. this was the start that lead to his other films as Mallrats. Chasing amy eventually lead to the sequel clerks 2. has alot of adult humor - so this is not for the kiddies :D blu ray offers many extras including both the theatrical version and the first cut version of the film. you shoe-polish smelling mfer

      I shouldn't even be here today.How would you feel if you had to come into work on your day off.And you had a whole day of activities you wanted to do.Well that's what I felt when watching this movie.Dante and his best friend Randal find interesting ways to get thru the day.Weather it be talking about Star Wars or customers it's all good and funny to watch.Appearance by Jay and Silent Bob make this movie even funnier in the process.Two crazy guys standing outside the quick stop making fun of people,and dancing.
