On their way back from Park City, Devin & Amy detour to New Jersey’s Quick Stop convenience store to discuss the Sundance surprise of 1994: Kevin Smith’s Clerks. Is this the View Askewniverse's only good film? Did Clerks prove that anyone could make a movie--and is that a good thing? Can Devin put aside his personal beef with Kevin Smith? Plus, they predict which flicks from this year’s Sundance could be potential canon fodder. Tune in for the battle -- and head to the forums on Wolfpop to cast the deciding vote!

A heavy-hearted no. I loved this movie so much when it came out. I probably ended up giving blockbuster many times the value of the VHS. But in the end, I don't think it holds up.

I'll say yes on Clerks.

Really wish you guys would have brought up and discussed the deleted ending where Dante gets shot and killed at the very end of the movie. Imagining how that would have played out if they went with that ending has always really intrigued me.

I was 19 or 20 when Clerks came out so juts a bit younger than the guys in the movie & Kevin Smith. At that point in my life I enjoyed the film a lot for what it was and what it did, but watching it years later I'm not sure it holds up as much as it could. But because of the way it was made, I'll give it a very soft yes, but only if you also put Reservoir Dogs in the canon for similar reasons.
