Okay one really huge difference between the two is that the first one is in black and white and that sucks!!!!
Secondly the second Clerks sorta had more point to it then the 1st Clerks.
The whole 2nd movie was tons better then the 1st!!!
The whole pillow pants, and the Lord of the Rings vs. Star Wars debate, AND
Jays monologue and his dance were tops to the original!!!!
Thanks to whoever accepts this debate!!!

My opponent has some good points clerk to had some ridiculously funny moments in it and Clerks 2 has been one of the funnier movies I have seen in recent years.

I must disagree with the fact that the second movie was better and to steal a quote from Clerks 2, Clerks 1 was a massive achievement if you look at how much they accomplished with such a low budget movie. If the first movie wasn't so successful then they wouldn't have been able to become so popular (by they I mean Jay and Silent Bob). The sheer achievement of the second movie can only be attributed to the brilliant setup from the first.

OKAY BUT IF THEIR WAS NO SECOND THERE WOULD BE NO BRILLIANT SEQUEL(CLREKS2)!
FOR INSTANCE NO ONE WOULD KNOW THAT THERE WAS A WEIRDO CHRISTIAN DUDE NAMED ELIAS THAT TOOK CONSTANT RIDICULE FROM RANDALL!!!
THERE WOULD BE NO PUKING OF A SUPER NERD!!!
THERE WOULD BE NO (THE DONKEY THIING)!!!!
AND THAT DUDE WOULD'VE NEVER GONE WITH THAT GIRL!!!!i HAVEN'T SEEN EITHER MOVIES IN A LONG TIME.....SORRY IF I SOUND ENEDUCATED IN THE WORLD OF CLERKS!!!
SO WHILE IT IS TRUE THAT THERE WOULD BE NO SECOND WITHOUT THE FIRST THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THE FIRST WAS BETTER......
THANK YOU FOR ACCEPTING THIS DEBATE!!!!!!!
OH YEAH AND WASN'T THERE A JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKES BACK OR SOMETHING BEFORE CLERKS TWO!?!?!?!?! MY FRIEND WHO IS AN AVID CLREKS WATCHER SAID IT SUCKED.... BUT IDK I NEVER SAW IT.......

Not to worried about punctuation or sentence structure as long as you can state your point. This is a some what relaxed debate so i wouldn't worry to much. Although the characters are brilliantly put together I beg to differ. Have you seen all of jay and silent movies Jay and Silent Bob play the exact character the story lines are always the same and their is always a great deal of camios.

Don't get me wrong I am by no means degrading the movie it was a riot I just feel that Clerks 1 is better because it is one of the movies that defined their style and made them who they are today.

I'm going to have to go with con on this one. First, pro forfeited round 3 leaving con no reason to post. Secondly, I liked 2 better than 1, but I think you've got to give a lot of credit to the originality of the first. It spring-boarded Kevin Smith's career and cult following. And for the record, it's never forgivable to go a** to mouth.
