The film definitely had an indie feel to it, and that was good. The fact that it was shot on location made it feel more natural as opposed to a major studio project would have been on a backlot. The humor was pretty good for the most part. A film fan will definitely love many parts of the film, including the "Star Wars" debate, which had to be my favorite part of the movie. I also really liked the stupid customers and guidance counselor scenes. Even though Jay and Silent Bob were at times funny, I felt that their subplot was less relevant to the film and they could have just been customers that came and went.
The film was pretty well-made for a film of this caliber. The cinematography was pretty good, and at first, I thought that the monochrome didn't really add anything to the film, however after reading up about it, it was likely a creative solution to Smith having to film at night.
So overall, "Clerks" was a pretty fun movie, but it isn't for everyone. I am looking forward to watching the rest of Kevin Smith's View Askewniverse over the next week or so.
