The movie was incredible. It replaces Mallrats as my new favorite commedy.
I love how it's filled with all the wholesome inside jokes that you
wouldn't get unless you saw the other films. I'd go see it 100 times if I
could. But I'm
only 15 so I gotta pull the ol 'pay for a shitty movie, sneak into a good
movie' gag. I can't wait for the cartoon.
P.S. Put Clerks back on the air.
: 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.
: And the real tale, anyway, will be told next week. Let's just pray it
doesn't repeat the 'Dogma' second week drop (51%), and instead, hold in
there with a 30% or less drop.
: But remove the figures and all (because, let's face it - the movie's
going to make it's money back and then some; especially with video) and
concentrate on what really matters...
: 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.
