I'm Not Even Supposed To Be Here Today

     If you are like me, these words bring back fond memories. Reminds me of a time when movies were not so budget heavy. A time when you may find a small budget film to be as entertaining as a high dollar "blockbuster".

     Clerks is the story of a man by the name of Dante, your average joe, stuck in a rut. Same thing day in day out. We are introduced to him, passed out halfway in his closet, being woken up by his boss calling him into work on his day off. For me at least the laughs start there.

    Everything you could possibly imagine goes wrong right from the beginning for poor Dante, the shutters of the Quick Stop convenience store he works at are stuck closed. Insane customer after insane customer come in making his day horrible. The worst part is, this all happens not thirty minutes after he has been open. The one saving grace of his day, and I use that term loosely as possible, is his best friend Randal works (if that is what you want to call it) next door.

     I really don't want to ruin too much of this movie for you, but in every way shape and form, it is worth the time for you to check it out. Funny, witty, clever, everything that a good actual movie should be, without all the over the top Hollywood B.S. that accompanys so many of today's films.
