Convenience and video store clerks Dante (Brian O'Halloran) and Randal (Jeff Anderson) are sharp-witted, potty-mouthed … and bored out of their minds. So in between needling customers, the counter jockeys play hockey on the roof, visit a funeral home and deal with their love lives. Produced on a shoestring budget by director Kevin Smith, this classic indie comedy won awards at both the Sundance and Cannes film festivals.

A buoyant, bleakly funny comedy chronicling a day's worth of activity at two adjoining stores.
Janet Maslin, New York Times  full review
A hoot one moment, a hiss the next, the film is about as even as a city road after a hard winter. But the script's sheer vigour sees us through.
Rick Groen, Globe and Mail  full review
A collegiate and post-collegiate laugh fest.
Desson Thomson, Washington Post  full review
Clerks is so utterly authentic that its heroes have never heard of their generation.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
The film looks no more expensive than it was; some of the acting (by local nonprofessionals) is spectacularly amateurish; the story is a series of anecdotes about hockey, shopping and loving the one you're with. But it's worth loitering in this shop.
Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
Amateurishly acted, clumsily edited and slapped together out of what looks like surveillance camera footage, the thing bumps along not so much on talent as on audacity.
Hal Hinson, Washington Post  full review
At 24, Smith also knows something about casting. Using a mixture of stage actors and novices, he's found the right ensemble tone to make Clerks seem as spontaneous as it needs to be.
