The film that started it all for one of the most recognised personalities of DIY film mythology. Also one of the how-to guides about making your own instant cult movie.

Dante and his compatriots work in stores around a small area of New Jersey. The film is a Day In the Life Of with just some of the trials and tribulations they go through trying to navigate their lives and customers. The original tagline said it all 'just because they serve you, doesn't mean they like you.'

Launched the awareness of two cinematic icons, Jay & Silent Bob, who featured to varying degrees of prominence in Smith's films ever since.

As a piece of culture, it's vastly important. As a movie, it's okay, funny in parts and worth seeing. Smith's standout talent is the quasi-neurotic Tarantino-like dialogue, for example the conversation about how many guys Dante's girlfriend has given oral sex too.
