MOVIE: Clerks II

Q: What do the following all have in common:
A: They were sequels that actually managed to SUCK LESS than Clerks II.

Outside of anything by Uwe Bole, there have been maybe three movies in the past thirty years that I've stopped watching in the first five minutes. Seriously. And Clerks II is one of those three.

I suppose the overwhelming vulgarity can eventually be saturating to the point of polymorphing itself into something remotely approaching "funny." I suppose the complete lack of acting ability is part of the humor. And perhaps the dialog is supposed to be stilted and trite.

Maybe I'm too old. Maybe I'm not cool enough. But I definitely do not "get it."

So I turned it off.

I've lost those five minutes of my life forever.

Kevin Smith owes me, big time.
