Plot

Randal Graves accidentally leaves the coffee pot warmer on overnight, burning down the Quick Stop convenience store where he and Dante Hicks have worked for over a decade. Approximately one year later, they are working at a Mooby's fast food restaurant. Dante is planning to leave his minimum wage lifestyle in favor of a family life in Florida with his domineering fiancée Emma Bunting (Jennifer Schwalbach Smith), whose father will even provide them with a house to live in and a commercial car wash to run. Jay and Silent Bob are now drug-free (to reflect Jason Mewes' new-found sobriety[3]) after having been busted and put on probation, which means that they must now undergo drug testing. However, they still deal marijuana, and are otherwise still up to their usual antics, following Dante and Randal from the Quick Stop to Mooby's. Dante is also close to their boss, laid back free spirit Becky Scott (Rosario Dawson), with whom he had a drunken one night stand on a food preparation table in the back of Mooby's several weeks prior to the start of the movie's events.

Thanks to some snide remarks from an old high school nemesis turned internet millionaire, Lance Dowds (Jason Lee), Randal (Jeff Anderson) realizes he is not as happy with his position in life as he had thought. Not only that, but he is scared, both at the prospect of never amounting to anything, and at the idea of losing Dante. He quietly shrugs off this mid-life crisis, but not without causing some trouble of his own in the store. 19-year-old Elias (Trevor Fehrman), a The Lord of the Rings/Transformers geek and isolated Christian virgin, works at Mooby's with Dante and Randal, and is frequently subjected to Randal's brand of social abuse. Randal is shocked at how gullible Elias is when Elias explains to him that he has never slept with his girlfriend because a troll called "Pillowpants" dwells inside her vagina and will bite off his penis if they have sex before "the troll is peed out" when she turns 21.

After Dante confesses he is worried about dancing at his wedding, Becky takes Dante onto the roof to teach him some moves and asks Jay and Silent Bob to supply the music. They initially play a song by the demonic King Diamond before being scolded and replacing that with The Jackson 5. At this point an elaborately choreographed dance routine to the song is performed by dozens of extras. As the song, "ABC," plays, Dante realizes that he is in love with Becky, and at the end of the song, he admits this to her. Becky then reveals to Dante that she is pregnant with his child. She tells him that she will keep the baby, but will not ruin his upcoming marriage by telling Emma, leaving Dante free to pursue his own life in Florida. Anticipating Dante's move there, Randal throws Dante a going away party, which includes "Kinky Kelly and the Sexy Stud", an "interspecies erotica" performance (a donkey show), complete with a fog machine. Dante, having been sent away by Randal to maintain the surprise, arrives back at the restaurant, mistakes the fog for another fire, and calls the fire department. When he discovers that it is not a fire, he watches the show with Randal, Jay, Bob and an increasingly intoxicated and aroused Elias. They are soon horrified to find that Kinky Kelly is not a woman, but the featured donkey. The "Sexy Stud" turns out to be a leather clad, overweight man, whom Randal originally thought was the donkey's wrangler. Everyone is disgusted (but intrigued) at this show except Elias, who unzips his pants, whimpers "I'm sorry Jesus" and then masturbates openly while crying. For the band, see King Diamond (band). ...

Becky arrives, and although she is initially shocked at the presence of the performance in her restaurant, she and Dante share a close moment, in which he tells her that he thinks she has feelings for him, and that he feels the same way about her. They kiss, only to be discovered by Emma, who arrives with a cake she baked for Dante. The situation escalates when Jay mistakenly congratulates Emma for her pregnancy; when Jay realizes what is going on, he encourages Emma to assault Dante (which she does) before asking her out. Emma leaves the restaurant in disgust.


The fire and police departments arrive at the restaurant, responding to the emergency phone call that Dante made but never cancelled and are shocked at what they see. Dante, Randal, Elias, Jay, Silent Bob, and The Sexy Stud are taken to jail while the police decide if charges will be filed; the Sexy Stud calmly recites the New Jersey penal code, reassuring them all that there is no law against watching an act of bestiality, and that he is the only one who will face any recourse-- a small fine. An enraged Dante announces the end of his and Randal's friendship, leaving Randal hurt and devastated. Randal confesses his fear of losing his best friend, and suggests that the duo buy the Quick Stop and RST Video store for themselves. Jay and Silent Bob agree to lend them the money (a deleted scene reveals that the pair received thousands of dollars in royalties after the events of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back), on the condition that they be allowed to loiter in front of the Quick Stop as they did years ago. Jay tacks on a second condition-- that Randall and Dante must blow each other, then they have to go ass to mouth-- that Silent Bob quickly nixes. Dante and Randall take the money from Jay and Silent Bob and buy the Quick Stop and RST Video. Dante proposes to Becky, who accepts, and she quits Mooby's to help Dante and Randall repair and remodel the stores. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001) is a film written by, directed by and starring Kevin Smith, the fifth to be set in his View Askewniverse, a growing collection of characters and settings that developed out of his cult favorite Clerks. ...


Dante and Randal repair the Quick Stop. Elias applies for Randall's old job at RST Video. Randall is hesitant to hire him, but Dante eventually convinces him to give Elias the position. Then, while a visibly pregnant Becky and Elias look on, Dante and Randal reveal an "I assure you, we're re-open!" sign (a reference to the original Clerks) on the front of the Quick Stop. Jay and Silent Bob, the latter playing the song Goodbye Horses yet again as Jay puts on his chapstick and assumingly does his whole dance all over again (a spoof of Buffalo Bill's dance in The Silence of the Lambs). Finally, Dante and Randal are behind the Quick Stop counter. The movie ends with a reverse zoom of Dante and Randal, passing the Milk Maid (Smith's mother) from the first film, as the scene fades from color to the black and white of the original film. Goodbye Horses is a song written by William Garvey and performed by Q Lazzarus (the name of the band as well as the lead singer) in 1988. ... The Silence of the Lambs is a 1991 film directed by Jonathan Demme and starring Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins. ...


Production

In 1999, the original titles were slated to be Clerks 2: Hardly Clerkin' and 'Clerks 2: Rude and Unwrapped'. Smith later modified the subtitle to Clerks II: The Passion Of The Clerks, lampooning the title of Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ. The film was originally scheduled for a 2005 release, and then a January 2006 release, but the production was pushed back due to other projects and Kevin Smith's involvement in the romantic comedy Catch and Release.

Smith released production diaries on the Clerks II website (see links below). They chronicle the entire making of the film from the first rehearsals all the way through to the final release. Some of these web diaries are also available on the two-disc DVD of the film. Smith released a Web-only teaser trailer on the Clerks II website on January 9, 2006[5] and a web-only trailer on April 2, 2006.[5] Smith also released several shorts featuring action figures from his previous films to promote the film.

Prior to the release of the film, Kevin Smith had mentioned releasing an MP3 file commentary to be downloaded and listened to in movie theaters via iPod. Ultimately, theater owners and exhibitors objected, and the plan was scrapped. The abandoned commentary, featuring Smith, Scott Mosier and Jeff Anderson, is included on the DVD. iPod is a brand of portable media players designed and marketed by Apple Inc. ...

The bookend Quick Stop scenes are in black and white (to simulate the original visual style of Clerks), the rest of the film is in color though Kevin has stated that much of the film's color was desaturated almost to the point where the film had a similar texture to the first film.[6] The contrast in color saturation used can be seen the 'ABC sequence' in which a more vibrant and saturated color temperature is used to give a warm and sunny look that adds to the playful nature of the piece.

Casting

According to the DVD commentary, Kevin Smith originally wanted to cast his wife Jennifer Schwalbach Smith as Becky. Executive Producer Harvey Weinstein objected, however, as he wanted a known actress to play the role, since he felt the film's marketing could've had a better chance of box office success. Other actresses that Smith had met with were Sarah Silverman and Bryce Dallas Howard, who both declined. Smith recalls having lunch with Howard, who said she was interested in the film but ultimately passed in order to do Lady in the Water. Silverman said she didn't want to play the character Becky as she had been cast as girlfriends in numerous other productions and feared type-casting, but loved the script and would have been more than willing to play the part of Randall. Rachel Weisz was another name the studio considered but Smith figured she would turn the role down and never offered her the part. Ellen Pompeo expressed an interest but could not take the role due to scheduling difficulties with Grey's Anatomy. Smith has also speculated that the decision to decline from several actresses was due to the racy dialogue.

Rating

The film was originally planned to be released without an MPAA film rating, in order to avoid receiving an NC-17. Smith stated "If we put it in front of the ratings board they'd be like, 'You're insane. We have to create a new rating for that.'"[7] He later submitted it, and, to his astonishment, it received an R rating without any edits. The MPAA film rating system is a system used in the United States and territories and instituted by the Motion Picture Association of America to rate a movie based on its content. ...


Deleted scenes

The Clerks II DVD features a showcase of deleted scenes. These are:

  • The dialogue on the road to work was rearranged. Also, Randal asks Dante if he asked Emma "how many dicks she has sucked", referring to Veronica from Clerks.
  • The Jay and Silent Bob intro is longer. Jay complains about how everything became boring since he's sober and blames Silent Bob for being a silent and boring companion. While talking about how he imagined Silent Bob responding to him when he was stoned, he imitates Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" with the "Danny's not home" line. Then he plays a pun on Silent Bob saying he would like to be stoned again, and then come the two teenagers. The discussion with them is extended.
  • A running gag that never made it to the final cut was the pocket Bible. Whenever Jay and Silent Bob need some advice, Silent Bob opens the Bible at a random page, flips some pages and puts his finger on a random sentence, which Jay reads and interprets it in his fashion. It was actually seen twice. The first time is when Jay and Silent Bob show the teens how useful a Bible can be. Jay asks if a girl would go down on them, prays, Silent Bob points at a random sentence, Jay reads about "two young pigeons bringing a lamb back" and figures out the pigeons are he and Silent Bob, and the answer is yes for both of them. The second time is when Emma sees them by the "Eat pussy" tag. Silent Bob points a sentence, Jay reads it, but finds it's pointless. There was going to be a third time, during the Dante-Emma talk, but it wasn't even shot.
  • During the "Large Clit" talk, Randal calls Emma a hermaphrodite (possibly a reference to Clerks., where he was watching hermaphrodite porn in the Quick Stop) and a mutant, and advises her to reduce her clit with an operation. Emma, on the contrary tells that her clitoris is perfect for having long sex.
  • The Dante-Emma conversation is much longer. Emma asks if someone is watching the counter while Randal is outside with them. Emma proposes to take Dante home right away, but Dante refuses, telling her he must work. Then they remember how they went on a date for the first time (Emma being a client, and Dante asking her out before Randal could do it). It is revealed that Emma was a prom queen in their school. Dante refers to his life as a "Matrix". Emma says she hated growing up in Jersey and didn't miss it in college. When Dante tells her that not all New Jersey people are stupid, Jay and Silent Bob try to join the conversation, but Dante threatens them he would call the cops and they retreat searching for help in their pocket Bible. The conversation ends with Emma saying "Florida forever" and Dante finishing: "Jersey never".
  • After Randal and Jay sing King Diamond and Elias falls on the floor, Randal asks Jay what he's doing behind the counter, and Jay leaves.
  • Randal provides some more arguments in the "Ass to mouth" dispute with Becky.
  • The "Goodbye Horses" dance is much longer. Jay tries to make Silent Bob dance with him, and then pressures him to make some "wrong decisions" with him.
  • When Dante and Becky speak about them having had sex on the prep table, Dante says he would nickname Becky "Tuna salad" if he wasn't leaving.
  • The dialog with Lance "Picklefucker" Dowds is longer, Lance does more remarks about Dante and Randal staying the same. When Lance orders his burger and his drink, he says Dante should ask him if he wants fries as well. Dante asks and Lance refuses. When Dante tells him the price, Lance hands him a 100 dollars bill telling him he only has hundreds. It is revealed that Jay knows Lance's nickname but doesn't know Randal and Dante used it too.
  • On the road back from carts, Randal talks much more about Dante's masturbating at work. When Dante admits he does it in ladies room, Randal starts telling him what it would be like if Dante's own mother got pregnant from the toilet seat and imagines what the eventual child would look like.
  • The black couple does a lot more talking.
  • The prison scenes are those which were cut the most. The prison guard makes noise against jail bars with her baton and frightens Jay and Silent Bob leaning on the bars; only after this Jay says "Déjà fucking vu, right?". The donkey show performer mentions that "even Jesus Christ was persecuted for his personal beliefs". Dante actually tells Jay he screwed with Becky and not with "the guy who owns Mooby's" and Jay makes a remark about her, thus making Randal laugh. When they talk about going to college, Randal mentions Veronica as being the one who had the idea. When Silent Bob says he has nothing to say, Jay asks him to "drop some science on these motherfuckers", then suggests Bob he could just quote Star Wars, Silent Bob squeezes out of himself a meaningless "these are not the droids you're looking for", and only then Jay calls him "a mute fuck". Silent Bob's answer is longer, he actually calls Jay "a gay man in deep denial". Jay mentions they got the money from a movie based on Jay and Silent Bob, obviously referencing "Bluntman and Chronic" in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Randal's peacemaking speech is longer.

Cancelled scenes

Some scenes didn't even make it to the deleted scenes, through being shot many times. They can be seen in "How Movies Are Made" feature on the DVD.

  • When Jay and Silent Bob are outside eating Lance's food, Jay says "At least, it was free" and Silent Bob nods with a smile, before sipping on an awful drink and being disgusted again.
  • When Dante talks with Becky about dancing at the wedding, Randal briefly joins the conversation, criticizing Dante.
  • When Dante runs after Becky after having a fight with Randal, Jay says a baby is a gift from Jesus.
  • When a stoned Elias falls and Jay and Silent Bob honk, Elias sits back on the table and tells Jay and Silent Bob they are his best friends.
  • During the donkey show, Dante and Becky leave the restaurant to talk. While the four remaining guys watch the Sexy Stud going down on Kinky Kelly, Elias tries to kiss Jay.
  • When cops and firemen arrive, Jay and Silent Bob try to pull Randal away, but he refuses to quit the table he's sitting on.

Critical response

The film was received fairly well by critics. As of April 2007, the aggregate critical response measured by Rotten Tomatoes was a 63% Tomatometer reading, enough to earn it an overall "fresh" rating. Similarly the Metacritic.com composite of 29 reviews gave the movie a metascore of 65 out of 100.[8] Conversely, Rotten Tomatoes' "Cream of the Crop" critics (the subset deemed "popular and notable" by the website) were slightly less positive: their 55% Tomatometer reading translates into an overall rating of "rotten" since it takes a 60% to get a "fresh" rating.[9] 2007 is a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

In a review for The New York Times, A.O. Scott notes the following:[10] The New York Times is a daily newspaper published in New York City and distributed internationally. ... A.O. Scott (born July 10, 1966) is a film critic for The New York Times newspaper. ...

"[W]hat makes “Clerks II” both winning and (somewhat unexpectedly) moving is its fidelity to the original “Clerks” ethic of hanging out, talking trash and refusing all worldly ambition. If anything, the sequel is more defiant in its disdain for the rat race, elevating the white-guy-doing-nothing prerogative from a lifestyle choice to a moral principle."

Justin Chang's review at Variety[11] called it a "softer, flabbier and considerably higher-budgeted follow-up to Kevin Smith's 1994 indie sensation that nevertheless packs enough riotous exchanges and pungent sexual obscenities to make its 97 minutes pass by with ease." Variety is a daily newspaper for the entertainment industry. ...


At an advanced screening for critics, Joel Siegel walked out of the movie approximately 40 minutes in, during a scene where the characters attempt to procure a donkey for sexual purposes. Smith claimed on his own website that Siegel "bellowed" the phrase "Time to go. This is the first movie I've walked out on in thirty fucking years." TV Guide film critic Maitland MacDonagh, who claims to have been sitting next to Siegel, largely confirms Smith's account but insists that Siegel did not curse or "bellow." However, she reports that he pointedly left from the farthest possible exit, thereby making sure everyone noticed his departure.[12] On his blog, Smith criticized Siegel for unprofessional conduct,[13] in a profanity-laced tirade in which he referred to Siegel's mustache as a "cum catcher" and referred to the critic performing sexual acts on fellow director M. Night Shyamalan in regard to his praise for The Village[14] before having seen it. Smith later confronted Siegel in a live interview on the Opie and Anthony show; Siegel apologized for cursing and causing a scene, and told Kevin that he thinks he is a "fine filmmaker," while still defending his decision to walk out.

Trivia

  • In the movie there is a shot showing Becky sitting at her desk but the blinds only allow you to see a part of the office. On her desk is a Cock-Knocker doll which was played by Mark Hamill in the movie Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
  • The end credits of Dogma stated that Jay and Silent Bob would return in Clerks 2: Hardly Clerkin, but the fifth film in the "View Askewniverse" films ended up being Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. However, Kevin Smith has already been known to make his fans wait; Dogma was promised to be coming in the credits of his first three movies. Kevin Smith has since stated that Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was the conclusion to the Askewniverse cycle and Clerks II is the epilogue, although in the end credits it states, "Jay and Silent Bob might return someday. Right now, they're taking it easy."
  • Many references are made to the Transformers, including the recent release of the 2007 Transformers movie and Elias' admission that his e-mail address and overall Internet handles are named for Optimus Prime.
