Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

It finally hit me why it has taken me so long to warm up to Clerks II.

With the original Clerks, I was able to relate to the notion of being stuck in a rut, and yet being so comfortable in that rut that it was impossible to make changes to it, no matter how much you hate your current situation.

When Clerks II came out that told the story of the main characters finally realizing what it took to move on and get out of that rut, I was still in the situation of the characters from the first film. It's taken me seven years to finally find a way out of the rut I was in, so now the premise of Clerks II resonates with me so much more than it ever did when the movie first came out.
