Product Description

CLERKS is one wild day in the life of a pair of overworked counter jockeys whose razor-sharp wit and on-the-job antics give a whole new meaning to customer service.

CHASING AMY: Filled with Smith's unique ear for dialogue and insight into relationships, CHASING AMY offers a thoughtful, funny look at how perceptions alter lives, and how obsession and self-doubt skew reality.

JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK: Wildly irreverent and packed with stars, including Ben Affleck, Chris Rock, Jason Lee and more, the hilarious conclusion of Jay and Silent Bob's story is big entertainment.

Clerks
Before Kevin Smith became a Hollywood darling with Chasing Amy, a film he wrote and directed, he made this $27,000 comedy about real-life experiences working for chump change at a New Jersey convenience store. A rude, foul-mouthed collection of anecdotes about the responsibilities that go with being on the wrong side of the till, the film is also a relationship story that takes some hilarious turns once the lovers start revealing their sexual histories to one another. In the best tradition of first-time, ultra-low budget independent films, Smith uses Clerks as an audition piece, demonstrating that he not only can handle two-character comedy but also has an eye for action--as proven in a smoothly handled rooftop hockey scene. Smith himself appears as a silent figure who hangs out on the fringes of the store's property. --Tom Keogh

Chasing Amy
Writer-director Kevin Smith (Clerks) makes a huge leap in sophistication with this strong story about a comic-book artist (Ben Affleck) who falls in love with a lesbian (Joey Lauren Adams) and actually gets his wish that she love him, too. Their relationship is attacked, however, by his business partner (Jason Lee), who pulls a very unsubtle Iago act to cast doubt over the whole affair. The film has the same sense of insiderness as Clerks--this time, Smith takes us within the arcane, funny world of comic-book cultism--but the themes of jealousy, deceit, and the high price of growing up enough to truly care for someone make this a very satisfying movie. --Tom Keogh

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
With sidesplitting dialogue and rampant profanity, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back reunites Kevin Smith's dynamic duo in supreme lowbrow style. It's the fifth comedy in Smith's celebrated New Jersey "trilogy." Here Quick-Stop potheads Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith) wreak vengeance on Hollywood, where Miramax is making a "Bluntman & Chronic" feature inspired by J. and S.B., but without their permission. En route from Jersey to La La Land, Jay and his "hetero life mate" encounter sexy jewel thieves (including the delightful Shannon Elizabeth), a precocious orangutan, a dimwit wildlife marshal (Will Ferrell), and a nonstop parade of in-jokes, harmless (yet controversial) gay jokes, and splendid celebrity cameos. While gently biting the Miramax hand that feeds him, and paying affectionate homage to the Star Wars saga, Smith sheds all inhibitions to give Jay and Silent Bob a stellar sendoff that's nasty, sassy, and undeniably hilarious. --Jeff Shannon

No one's reviewed this beast yet? Really? No one? Okay, here we go. While Clerks may not be the first working class slacker comedy, it's certainly the quintessential film of the genre, not to mention of Kevin Smith's lengthy career. I first saw it when I was about 15 and was turned off by the filthy, over the top sexual discussions, but giggling at the odd ball debates on the nature of customer service and Starwars. Now that I am literally the age of the characters in the film (maybe even a little older), I found myself immersed in the rhythms of the film, barely noticing the bawdy language and demented twists. Single, fresh out of college, and working retail, I more or less live a version of this movie. What I once took to be amateurish (which it is to an extent) I now see was brilliantly conceived and executed. This is simply a must see. While the film was shot on a shoestring budget and is known for its grimy look, the blu ray is surprisingly capable. The HD transfer adds a subtle layer of texture to the film that DVD just can't duplicate. Sure, you may scoff at the ability to see the grain better, but that's exactly what it feels like. Since the original print was blown up from a lower resolution source, there is still a somewhat fuzzy quality to it, but if you have a large enough TV, the improvement is noticeable. And the sound... well there is a little action on the rear speakers, and I could hear all of the dialog... though I'm just sure it has to be basically the same as the DVD. The extras are the real meat and potatoes of the set, including everything from the Clerks X dvd box. As much as I love Smith's movies, I almost find myself enjoying the documentaries produced by Zak Knutson and Joey Figueroa even more.Read more ›

Chasing Amy
Its almost a chick flick, but then again it isn't.
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Jay and Silent Bob go on an adventure to shut down production of a movie about them, Hilarity Ensues.
Clerks. The one that started it all. If you are expecting special effects, run away, if you are expecting something PG, RUN. If you just want to laugh at brilliant dialogue and a story about two somewhat likeable rogues, watch this. My favorite line... well its probably best not to publish that... Just watch it.

This set nicely completes my collection. I was actually only missing Chasing Amy and Jay and Silent Bob strike back. An extra copy of clerks is just a bonus.

I'm fairly happy with my purchase. I would have given it 5 stars, but the disc for "Chasing Amy" skipped in a couple places (which was the movie I bought this set for.) Was disappointed by that. The other movies didn't skip or freeze up, so I guess it's just that one disc.

This is a must for any Kevin Smith fan. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was their first blu ray release, so the bonus features on it are not too great. Great way to start your collection!

Good quality. A must watch for anyone over 18. I started watching these when I was younger and have enjoyed them ever since. I just can't recommend them to any minors due to explicit nature of the films.

The growth of Kevin Smith as a filmmaker from Clerks to Chasing Amy is enormous. Both great movies, but the emotional weight of Chasing Amy is a different basket from Clerks. I've always referred to it as a Chick Flick for Guys. Great stuff. Jay and Silent Bob - nice little send up.

Overall, great value, great flicks.

I love most Kevin Smith movies unconditionally, and this is my three favorite in one collection. And on Blu Ray! Everytime I feel bummed out about my job I just put in Clerks and laugh.

This is a great 3-disc director's set originally released in 2009 featuring 3 Kevin Smith films: Clerks (15th Anniversary Edition), Chasing Amy and Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back. Mallrats is also well worth watching (sold separately). Oddly Chasing Amy has disappeared from the Criterion Collection when she went from DVD to Blu-ray. There are good extras for Clerks (including the 92-minute, 2004 making of documentary), some extras for Chasing Amy (including the 90-minute, 2009 making of doc), and no extras (except the audio commentary and a featurette included in the Clerks bonus content) for Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back. It is priced right for $22. It does have over 5 hours of total bonus content making it a treat for fans. If you like the director then the audio commentaries are worth an extra star alone.

Buy this Triple Feature.
