Here in one volume are two screenplays by Kevin Smith, one of today's most original filmmakers. Clerks was the independent film success story of 1994, winning the Prix de la Jeunesse and the International Critics Week Award at Cannes, and the Filmmakers' Trophy at Sundance. Set in the everyday world of a New Jersey QuickStop and its adjacent video store, the film revolves around the obsessions, love lives, and friendships of the clerks. Janet Maslin of the New York Time called it 'a buoyant comedy... and exuberant display of ingenuity,' and Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times raves, 'Clerks is boisterous and irreverently funny... an example of what is best and most hopeful about the American independent film scene.'

Two great screenplays from two great movies. I liked to follow along, mark the deleted scenes, mark the lines that are different, and have a blast. Read full review

Review: Clerks & Chasing Amy

User Review  - Keon - Goodreads

He's not everybody's cup of tea but Kevin Smith's mixture of pop culture and heart just makes this completely my thing. Do not approach if you hate excessive talk about star wars, sex and mixed up feelings in your twenties. Read full review
