Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Clerks II

Jay and Silent Bob are hanging out in front of a fast food joint, Mooby's. Why? Because that's where Dante and Randal work now. Randal spends most of his time making fun of Elias, their coworker, while Dante contemplates moving to Florida with his fiancee Emma. They get into arguments with customers regularly and debate the validity of racial slurs.

While taking dancing lessons from the restaurant manager Becky, Dante finds out that she got pregnant after the one night stand they had. Becky gets mad when Dante tells Randal and storms out, giving Randal an excuse to get Dante out of Mooby's. He's planning a going away party and hires a sex show which turns out be a bit weirder than expected. Let's just say that "Kinky Kelly and the Sexy Stud" should be considered false advertising. Becky forgives Dante and he breaks up with Emma.

When Dante accidentally calls the firemen as the show is going on, they all get thrown in jail. Randal and Dante get into a huge argument. Dante blames him for holding him back while Randal accuses him of bailing on their friendship. Dante asks Randal what he would do in his place. He proposes they reopen the Quick Stop where they used to work. Jay and Silent Bob offer them the money. Dante agrees and in the end we see them back in their store hanging out.
Best part of story, including ending: It's hard to live up to the first Clerks, and this movie doesn't, but I think it's funny enough to stand on its own. The movie might be more colorful, but Dante and Randal's prospects aren't.

Best scene in story: After all the funny and gross scenes, you get to the prison scene and it really sums up what these people are about.

Opinion about the main character: You can't blame Dante for wanting to move on. Most people would change their current situation if given the opportunity. But he's lucky to have a buddy like Randal to bring things into focus for him and these two guys need each other.
