Joe Siegel, the Good Morning America film critic, walked out of Clerks II and made a point of being an asshole as he left. Apparently, he shouted about  how he "Had never walked out of a movie in 30 years" and some shit. Anyway, Kevin Smith wrote about it on his MySpace:

Then Smith went on the Opie and Anthony radio show and was talking about it. They called up Joe Siegel and Kevin was lambasting him. It was fucking brilliant! Here's a link to it. Enjoy:

one of these days I'm going to knock some sense into you, RC.  I love you, but if, as a filmmaker yourself, you don't see the pure, shallow, desperate motivations behind even CONCEIVING "Clerks II" after a) Smith already made 4 sequels to Clerks and b) promised that after Jay and Silent Bob Strike back that the View Askiewniverse was no more, I gotta call you out.  I mean, I haven't seen the movie, but I see absolutely nothing even slightly humorous in the trailer.  I mean, seriously, that "Star Wars and dick jokes" well has got to be almost bone dry by now, don't you think?  I say if Siegel walked out on it after all the pure shit he's probably seen in his lifetime (think about it...this man probably didn't even walk out of CORKY ROMANO), then it's probably awful.  Plus, I never really knew this when I was a big fan, but KS is such a drama queen that it's ridiculous. 

Sorry for the rant, and I know I'll probably see this movie at some point, but it's going to be on my terms (i.e., free download).  I ain't giving this mofo any more money, especially after he let Fletch slip out of his hands, has started to ride Jason Lee's coattails instead of vice versa, insists on putting his wife in his movies, and wrote a movie in which Dante Hicks, the quintessential loser hero of the nineties, somehow is able to convince Rosario Dawson to let him touch her private parts. 

I say let him be a starving artist for awhile.  The bitch could stand to lose about 150 pounds anyway.

I completely agree with Cass.

Smith was lucky with, or else sucked Satans cock for Clerks.

After I heard about the standing ovation, I thought Kevin had done some amazing philosophical turn-around that left people in tears with memories of the American DreamĀ©.

Then I read the reviews. "OMG Ther's liek an black guy in a THONG dancing with a DONKEY AHAHA ALOLOLOL THIS MOOVIE IS TEH FUNNIESST EVAR%!!!!!!!! Kevin is a GEENEUS!"

Oh my....

Has Clerks 2 been officially released yet...?

Or is the UK just slow...?

I don't care why Kevin Smith made Clerks II, I'm jazzed to see it. The original Clerks was one of those movies that inspired me to be a filmmaker. He captured what life in the suburbs as a twenty-something was, at least for me.

I hear you on Smith in some regards. Still, when he's good (Clerks, Chasing Amy), he's amazing.

See, Chasing Amy is the film that secured Kevin Smith for me. He made a movie about male and female relationships and got it right.

Blah - he's still lucky.

He should not have made Clerks 2... but I may be proved wrong by it being ace. I hope for all our sakes that it IS ace.

Um, it won't be.  How can it?  Clerks II:  Several tens of millions of dollars and tabloid breakdowns later!

Clerks II: The same old crap that's now completely irrelevant to your original, core audience who are, ironically, at whom you are still aiming this film.

Clerks II: Smith is a tit.

Clerks II: Another shagging a dead man joke.

god, i love being right all the time.

dled this tonight out of sentimentality for Kevin (remember, I am the guy who got him to come to my college for this thingie), and now I'm really glad I didn't let my friends convince me to go see it in the theater this weekend. 

If any of you guys enjoy it, just ask yourselves this: would I have liked this if it was the debut film of a independent writer/director?  Seriously, I hate to admit it, and I think I've discovered that the reason I'm so down on this movie is because I admired Clerks and Kevin Smith's story in the first place and hate to see him do something like this, but Kevin Smith just pulled a George Lucas.

You so weren't right - else I'd never have been alive to kill you, and then rape your mother, get her pregnant, then use the old coathanger abortion trick.

Maybe that's what happened your face, all those years ago, except that your milkman wasn't very handy with teh coathanger.
