I let my boss borrow Clerks the other night and it was just returned to me with the phrase “ouch, that sucked” attached. OK, I realize it isn’t Shakespeare, but it’s damn funny for what it is: a very cheaply made movie with friends as actors and sarcasm and toilet humor for it’s main focus. Come on, who doesn’t laugh at the phrase “try not to suck any dick on your way through the parking lot”. Thats funny stuff people. Yeah, I know the actings weak, yes it’s in black and white, yes the plot is thin. Who cares. The very premise of the movie is funny as hell if you’ve ever worked behind a counter. I guess thats the point really. Some people are clerks and some people are customers.
Oh, and while I’m on the subject, the 10th Aniversary Edition of Clerks will be out today. I think I might pick it up although I already have a copy. My original copy is getting a bit worn and I’m a suckers for extras. I could have purchased Monty Python’s Holy Grail when it came out but I figured they’d come out with some uber-special edition and I was right.
