Clerks (1994)

Clerks (50:56) Rated R for some naughty, naughty words.

Kevin Smith‘s breakout flick is the foul-mouthed subject of our 10th Not 100 Project podcast. Trevor Little chose Clerks after he won our “Pick Your Podcast” contest. Not surprisingly, Smith’s name is mentioned far more often than his actors. Dude’s an unlikely multi-media star. We also chat a little about one of Trevor’s other faves, Super Troopers. Our longtime sponsor remains Sparkplug Coffee.

One thought on “Clerks (1994)

  1. I couldn’t agree more that ‘Clerks’ is required viewing for anyone with direct customer service experience: for me, its charm was always in its relatability. I remember after work one night while I was working at Horton’s, I was visiting a friend who worked at a pawn shop, along with another friend who worked in a shoe store. All of us had had a really annoying workday, and after exchanging stupid customer stories for half an hour or so, Mr. Pawn Shop suggested popping in ‘Clerks.’ What great therapy it was! And Bev, I agree that most of the actors were weak, but two things: 1) It doesn’t get any worse than the coroner, and 2) come on. Randal was awesome.

    Having said all that — Ryan, my friend, if you’re standing by your statement about ‘Clerks 2’ not being a bad movie by any standard, I must beg to differ like we’ve seldom if ever differed before. The world was a better place before that despicable, brain-punchingly idiotic heap of goatshit was unleashed into it. It kinda made me embarrassed that I had ever liked Kevin Smith. Although, you have made me feel like going back and watching the only ‘Clerks’ that matters again, for the first time in well over ten years.
