Why Clerks Isn't Supposed To Be Here in 2023 episode 213 GTSC podcast

1h 38m | Dec 2, 2023

Why Clerks isn't supposed to be here in 2023? The 90's indie comedy juggernaut shuffles in front of the firing squad at the request of Ray Stakenas. Who Would Win's favorite curmudgeon returns to spit water in the face of a treasured Gen X comedy that literally spawned an entire universe: Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Clerks 2, Clerks 3. Ray tactfully discusses why the terrible acting can't cover up the mediocre jokes and why some of the plot points are also deserving of no penance.

Sitting in with Kevin Gootee is one of his favorite ladies, comedienne Linette Paladino (HBO and Amazon Prime) Can Ray get in the win column again? Or is his argument worse than a bunch of community college actors working under a first time director?

Is this truly a comedy cult classic? How does this rank on your list of movie soundtracks?
