In this sequel that takes place 10 years after "Clerks," best friends Dante and Randal return (Brian Christopher O'Halloran and Jeff Anderson) as the indefatigably unambitious New Jersey friends. The quick mart where they worked has burned to the ground and now they are flipping burgers at a fast food restaurant, while continuing to abuse the customers. Also with Rosario Dawson, Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith. Directed by Kevin Smith. [1:38]

SEX/NUDITY 10 - A man wearing leather chaps and underwear (he's bare-chested and part of his bare buttocks are exposed) dances around a donkey while several other men watch: the man moves below the donkey, presumably performing oral sex on it, and then stands behind it thrusting rhythmically, presumably having sex with it.
 A young man masturbates (we see him moving rhythmically and moaning). A man makes crude sexual comments and dances seductively while caressing his own nipples.
 A man stands with his coat open revealing his bare chest and legs and his genitals are tucked between his legs. A man presses his bare buttocks against a restaurant window. A woman lifts her top to reveal her breasts to a man (she is wearing a sheer bra). A woman wears a low-cut tank top that reveals cleavage and dances while a man watches and admires her. A man dances while using a urinal in a restaurant bathroom, and his pants slip down revealing his buttock cleavage. A young man with his pants around his ankles runs across a room (we see him in boxers and he is bare-chested). A man sitting on a toilet with his pants around his ankles opens the bathroom door and a girl eating in a restaurant sees him.
 A woman climbs over the counter of a fast food restaurant and kisses a man passionately (it's her fiancé). A man and a woman hug and kiss. A man and a woman dance together and he dips her.

A man tells another man that he thinks the man's fiancé wants to get them all together for sex. Three people debate about whether a particular sex act is acceptable or not. A man makes reference to a part of a woman's anatomy and describes its size.
 A crude sexual remark is written on a young man's employee photograph and then a picture of male genitals is taped to it. A crude sexual remark is written on the wall of a restaurant. A man wears a T-shirt that says "Sail Nude."

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A woman knees a man in the groin, and then hits him in the head with a cake (he falls to the floor).
 A man grabs a man by the shirt collar and shoves him against a wall. A man swings at a man and punches a restaurant drive-thru statue instead. A man lunges at a man who shoves him away.
 A man talks about high school hazing incidents that include stripping boys of their clothing and shoving them into the girls' locker room, and inserting a pickle into a boy's anus. A young man talks about his girlfriend having trolls in her body that will bite off his genitals if he tries to have sex with her.

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
