Joey Lauren Adams,
Dante Hicks is not having a good day. He clerks in a small convenience store and is told to come into work on his day off. Dante thinks life is a series of down endings and this day proves to be no different. He reads in the newspaper that his ex-girlfriend Caitlin is getting married. His present girlfriend reveals to have somewhat more experience with sex that he thought. His principal concerns are the hockey game he has that afternoon and the wake for a friend who died. His buddy Randal Graves works as a clerk in the video store next door and he hates his job as much as Dante hates his.Written by
Kevin Smith originally cast himself as Randal, which is why Randal gets some of the best lines. See more »

The Australian Video Version, there are no alternate Endings, hence it does not show Kevin Smith in the deleted Scene where he steals the Cigarettes. See more »
In the original theatrical and early home video versions, the scene where the mom comes in with her kid to rent "Happy Scrappy Hero Pups" had a different child voice dubbed in saying "happy scrappy". However, starting with the 10th anniversary Clerks X DVD, the audio for the girl's line of dialogue was replaced with the girl's actual voice, rather than the dubbed version in the earlier releases.

A MUST SEE FOR ALL EMPLOYEES THAT ARE CLERKS AT MOVIE STORES!
This movie completely and perfectly describes the details of over the counter life as a clerk! It is one of the funniest movies i have ever seen.Kevin Smith is a very talented and insightful director with a great since of humor.The movie does look very cheesy and low budget, but a little movie trivia, Kevin Smith sold his comic book collection to fund this movie. Then after the movie became a hit he bought his comic books back! I currently work for blockbuster video and life is exactly like this movie! Thanks to this movie some of us are thinking about holding a hockey game on the roof of the store when we quit!I recommend this movie to every person who works as a clerk in a convenience store, or in a video store. This movie for those who don't work in mediocre place such as this will explain to you why we are the way we are!
