Having said that, I thought the other main character in the film as portrayed by Jeremy London was boring and played rather unsuccessfully by said London. Forlani was also poor in her role as the “always looking nervous” girlfriend, while Affleck pulled off his dance as the macho A-hole magnificently. Now, despite the film having plenty of funny lines, it did also contain many duds, while others seemed scripted or just too literate to be uttered by the dudes in this film. Having said all that, I did enjoy most of the lines, and the boatload of movie homages (Off the top of my head, there were tender pokes at JAWS, BATMAN, GODFATHER, STAR WARS, APOCALYPSE NOW, and many others….) but was eventually bored by the ultimately anti-climactic dating game show ending, and the lack of consistency in the movie. Fans of Kevin Smith should check it out for fun, but others should watch it only if they enjoy well-written dialogue, comic books and movie references galore! Otherwise, get out there and rent one of the funniest and best-written films of all time…CLERKS!!!
