320. Clerks II (2006)
All right, look, there's only one "Return," okay, and it ain't "of the King," it's "of the Jedi."
"Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back" was supposed to be Kevin Smith's fifth and final entry into the "Jersey Trilogy" of his View Askewniverse, but it was more of an inside joke than an actual film. It also did not capture what makes his films great, the self-deprecating relationship humor that all started with Dante and Randall in the original "Clerks." This film recaptures that vibe and is probably my second favorite of Smith's movies behind "Chasing Amy". Even if you are not a fan of the films, this one is almost worth it for the "pillow-pants" scene alone!
