Just because they serve you doesn't mean they like you

I adored "Clerks," and was thrilled to watch the trailer for "Clerks 2," in which Dante and Randal find themselves working in fast food.

Some parts of the trailer look too Hollywood for me, missing the low-budget and snappy dialogue that gave the first movie such charm. But I admit, I loved the trailer's opening scene, a perfect homage to the original film.

Also, have you read IMDB's trivia for the original movie? Low-budget films have such better trivia than the Hollywood crap. My favorite: "Randall and the Happy Scrappy Hero Pup lady are not actually in the room at the same time. Jeff Anderson refused to read the list of porno movies in front of her, and particularly in front of the child (although the reaction shots of the Happy Scrappy Hero Pup lady were obtained by reading the list to her)."

I loved that trivia too, and can't wait to see Clerks 2. We plan on seeing it opening night like we did for Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. The atmosphere was perfect as everyone got all the inside jokes.

I'm just sad that he doesn't film his movies in New Jersey any more. I live a couple of miles from the Quick Stop where Clerks was filmed (and just went by it the other day and can assure you it hasn't burned down, movie trailer notwithstanding), and my high school is the one where many of the characters, including Alyssa in Chasing Amy, went to school. I always got a kick out of spotting the locations where they filmed in the early movies. Oh well.

I love that they're working at Mooby's!

Are those supposed to be the actual characters from My Name is Earl, or did those two actors just happen to both wind up in the film?

those 2 actors are in most of Kevin Smith's movies
