If anything, Kevin Smith proved that there will always be a market for penis and fart jokes in Hollywood. Unlucky for him, Judd Apatow had better friends to work with. Still, Clerks is one of Smith’s best features in a writing capacity, making his stars/friends Jeff Anderson and Brian O’Halloran look like a million bucks, despite the film costing less than $300,000 to produce. With great commentary about George Lucas’s Star Wars saga (like the Death Star and the use of independent contractors to rebuild it), not to mention the indictment of the film Navy Seals, which by the way starred the tiger blood drinking warlock Charlie Sheen, Clerks was a film that spoke to a generation of misspent youth and is as relevant now as it was then.
Released on Blu-ray back in November 2009, the film will be turning seventeen in October. And in a few years it will reach the same age of the main character, Dante, a Quick Stop convenience store clerk who has no clear idea what he wants to do with his life. If you have never seen Clerks before and own a Blu-ray player, a below $10 price is hard to resist. Or if you own a Blu-ray player and have wanted to pick up the release, the price is hard to pass up. The Blu-ray is loaded to the gills with extras including two cuts of the film, multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes (including two feature-length docs for both Clerks and Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back – which probably should have been included on that release instead), short films and TV spots, etc.
Up until recently the Blu-ray was selling for $12.99. It then dropped to $9.99 and now to $9.49, where it is currently priced as.
