They're Too Old For This Shift.

Calling all slackers! It's hard to believe it's been 28 years since CLERKS premiered, a landmark American indie film of the 1990s. If you're a fan (or a Gen X-er) you won't want to miss CLERKS III, Kevin Smith's heart-felt, funny follow-up.

Following a massive heart attack, Randal enlists his friends and fellow clerks Dante, Elias, Jay, and Silent Bob to make a movie immortalizing his life at the convenience store that started it all.

"Smith returns to where his career began and has made one of his best films in decades, a tender and compassionate look at friendships that last no matter what, a remembrance of where Smith came from, and an appreciation for all those who helped him." - Collider
