Rated R · 91 minutes · 1994

At the time reportedly the cheapest American independent feature ever to be shown at Sundance (it cost less than $28,000), this raunchy 1994 black-and-white comedy by Kevin Smith (Chasing Amy) follows a day in the life of a beleaguered New Jersey convenience store clerk whose best friend (Jeff Anderson in a neat debut performance) operates the adjoining video-rental outlet. Most of the film's prodigious energy is verbal—scuzzy gross-out humor involving the customers and the sex lives of the two heroes and their girlfriends—and if not all the gags work, the overall irreverence and all-American anomie are fairly contagious. 89 min.
