Movie critic Joel Siegel has walked out on the press screening of Kevin Smith's Clerks II, the sequel to that film school favorite/underground classic Clerks:
In the scene that sent Siegel to the exit, the characters graphically discuss hiring a woman to perform sexual favors on a donkey. Siegel told Page Six: "It was so foul and mean and repulsive. I finally realized I could not say anything positive . . . I wasn't ready for this kind of smut . . . I hope he doesn't make any more movies."
After Clerks, I think Smith's only decent flick is Chasing Amy, with Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back being actually quite ghastly. On the other hand, if he can't scare a few people out of the theatre, then Smith's not brought his A game.
I shall wait therefore before passing judgment.
