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

This movie is not an action packed rollick it is, however, a slice of life from the '90s. The focus is on the dialogue and the experiences of the characters throughout their day. Kevin did appear to use friends and local talent as evidenced in the delivery of some of the lines but I think it added a certain charm to the overall experience.
Bottom line: This is one of my all-time favorite movies. If you have seen Clerks 2 do not expect the same thing from this movie. By the time Kevin Smith made #2 his style and skill as a writer/director had really developed.
The View Askewniverse is one of the best comedy film series around. The first film Clerks, was the vision of Kevin Smith who maxed out credit cards and even sold his comic book collection to see it through.
The film is about Dante Hicks who has to work at Quickstop Groceries on his day off. He interacts with his best friend Randal Grave who works at RST Video and often messes with customers. And of course this film introduces Jay and Silent Bob, one of the greatest comedy duos around.
Over the course of the film, Dante has to deal with a chewing gum representative making an anti-smoking campaign, playing hockey on the roof, going to an ex-girlfriend's funeral, dealing with annoying customers, dealing with his ex-girlfriend Caitlin Bree getting married to an Asian design major, and his feelings for his current girlfriend, which ends with Caitlin accidentally having sex with a dead man and his girlfriend dumping him.
This movie was great when it came out over 20 years ago and it's great now! Just comic brilliance and one of the most wonderful indie films of all time. (And it's a true indie film. Not this modern day "I only had a budge of $7 million and had to release under the FOX Searchlight banner" nonsense. This movie was made for $30,000 by a guy who had his friends as the production staff (and half the cast)
From Randal pining on what bothered him about Return of the Jedi to Olaf signing Berserker this movie is just fantastic. And it holds up over time!
If you've buying this on disc, and it's WELL worth the money to do so, get the Clerks X anniversary version with all the special features. It's the only way to go.
This is definitely worth a look and sets up the 2006 sequal Clerks II nicely. Both great films with great characters, some of the conversation pieces are great and really make the movies.
