"You know, there's a million fine looking women in the world, dude. But they don't all bring you lasagna at work. Most of 'em just cheat on you." - Silent Bob, Clerks (1994)

Synopsis: Dante and Randal are two convenience store workers that spend a day dealing with gum salesmen, loiterers, annoying customers and girlfriends sexual history an one of them wasn't even supposed to be there that day!
Fact: The original ending called for Dante to be killed during a stick up.
Trivia: The VHS version of Clerks was the most stolen movie in the U.S.
Movie Mistake: In the funniest scene of the movie, Randal ordering videos, the little girls coat disappears and reappears.
My Take: Because of Kevin Smith and Robert Rodriguez anybody with credit cards, the fortitude to undergo a months worth of medical testing and a camera can make a movie. Because they opened the door to inexpensive independent films we've had the opportunity to see some great movies from people that we may never have heard of. Clerks itself is a very funny movie and Randal has the best lines of the film.
