Clerks is cheap, crude and poorly-acted but it's a hell of a lot more entertaining than this. Less meandering too, hard as that may be to believe. Despite being held in a Hooters style restaurant - actually because of it - this film's great strength is its feminism. This is a film about women struggling with work, with life and also with men, but only a little bit. It's mostly about women holding up each other, which is a great foundation for a movie. Too bad Bujalski is such a lifeless writer and bland director.
