Clerks II: 7 out of 10.
Clerks was one of my favourite films of all time. I loved the dialogue, I loved the raw indie feel and I loved the sentiment. Everything was ultra cool, from the Death Star discussion to the ball hockey game on the roof. Even that Soul Asylum tune kicked ass.
I was worried about watching Clerks II because I love Clerks so much. Thankfully, Clerks II is good. It still has that charm and entertaining dialogue, and even Jay and Silent Bob show some restraint that keeps them funny as opposed to annoying. Clerks II is good, but it suffers from the same faulty premise that plagued the even funnier Knocked Up.
Ugly dudes like Brian O'Halloran who work at a fast food joint don't score total babes like Rosario Dawson. At least, not in the real world. And Seth Rogen, bless his heart, doesn't get my Izzy to fall in love with him. It's fiction.
Once you accept this premise-flawing required leap of faith, Clerks II is a winner.
