“What makes Clerks 2 both winning and (somewhat unexpectedly) moving is its fidelity to the original ,em>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.” — N.Y. Times critic A.O. Scott.
