: : First off, the day we mourn an 11.1 million dollar opening is the day I want out of this business.
: : Yes - first place would've been nice. Shit, it was almost do-able. But it wasn't in the cards, apparently, and that's okay. Opening to double digits with a movie this inside is a-okay in my book.
: : Were you entertained?
: : I've been combing through the last few boards (good Lord, we're going through them quickly lately, aren't we?), and the majority of you were, indeed, happy with the flick. Some cats weren't (hey, what do you want me to say? No flick's for everyone), but largely, folks dug it. That makes us here at the home office very happy.
: : Many thanks to those who did double and triple duty (hell, even single duty). You're posters are waiting for you when you send in your stubs.
: : If you feel so inclined, hit the flick again next weekend. That'd be nice.
: : So please - no long faces. We've done well. I'm happy. Very, very happy.
: : And while it was nice to have the number one movie in the country for a night, to be honest, it didn't alter my existence. All I cared about was if you guys dug the flick, and beyond that, if *I* dug the flick.
: : And I did. Very much. Always have, and always will.
: : But now it's no rest for the weary, and right back to the drawing board. If all goes smoothly, we'll be shooting again in Feb/March - just as 'Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back' should be hitting the video stores (unless Bob decides to go for the Christmas release).
: : And then, of course, there's the cartoon flick next year.
: : Which, if you think this movie was for the fans...
: : Hoo-boy, you ain't seen nothin' yet.
Thank you, I loved the movie. You have inspired me to become an independent spirited filmmaker like yourself. Not just from this movie but from the first time i saw clerks about three or four years ago. I can't even tell you how happy this movie made me. I didn't even know it was coming out until about four weeks ago and i almost shit when i heard. Anyway i live in delaware and i am going to make a trip up to the shop and check it out maybe i'll get lucky and get to meet my favorite filmmaker. You fuckin rule dude. Fuck American Pie 2 and all that shit. Thanks again Kevin Smith. Also i plan on starting out with some production assistant work and i would be honored to work my ass off on anything you do and that's my fuckin word. I would say more but i threw my back out last night fucking your mom nooch............You done good bubee.
