Clerks  

1994 92 mins

Director Kevin Smith
Starring Brian O' Halloran - Dante Hicks
Jeff Anderson - Randal Graves
Marilyn Ghiglotti - Veronica Loughran
Lisa Spoonhaver - Caitlin Bree
Kevin Smith - Silent Bob
Jason Mewes - Jay Phat Buds

Costing a mere $26,685 to make Clerks proves along with fellow low budget successes like El Mariachi (Robert Rodriguez - 1992, $7000) that money doesn't necessesarily guarantee a good film (the commercial crap that was Wild Wild West shows that).

The film simply shows the life of a convenience store clerk over a couple of days and his attempts to sort his messed up love life out whilst also showing what he gets upto with his mates in between which isn't really much - a funeral and a game of roller hockey on the roof of the store is the best of it. You may be thinking that if this is it, it doesn't sound like a very good film but what makes it the good film that it is, is a) the comedy, b) the characters and c) its simplicity, and these ensure that despite its very low budget it is an excellent film.

There are three sequels to Clerks; Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma which, from what I have seen and heard don't quite match their predecessor. I sat through all but the last fifteen minutes of Mallrats (when I fell asleep) with a few hardy companions after a bit of a do at Neil's house and from what I saw through my half closed eyes was a big disappointment but I will hopefully get the video off Bates the Younger so I can do a proper review soon. I think she's got Chasing Amy as well so that will be something to look forward to won't it!!
