Done Dirt Cheap DVD


Clerks is a 1990s American buddy comedy film; about a convenience store clerk in New Jersey suburbia, his interactions with his slacker friend (who "works" in the adjacent video store), current and former girlfriends, customers and two stoner drug dealers who hang around the storefront all day; the first of Kevin Smith's View Askewniverse films (featuring recurring characters, settings); thankfully, the original incongruously tragic ending was cut from the theatrical release
