Electric Boogalo?

Youtube has previews for the movie "Clerks II." I have mixed feelings about the July release of this movie. The original "Clerks" is one of my favorite movies. It captured, albeit in a ridiculous way, the essence of a bad day for a kid in his early 20's. Dante, the hero, was working his dead end job as a clerk, had just had a fight with his girlfriend, just wanted to play hockey with his buddies.

Kevin Smith has done some good and some bad films since then, but "Clerks" was lightning in a bottle. I can only hope that this doesn't ruin the charm of the original for me.
