'Clerks II': Picking at scabrous

clerksii.jpg 

Sure, it's scabrous, but is it funny?

Those scabrously funny folks over at Rottentomatoes.com are having fun with the reviews of "Clerks II." Here are some of the quotes that appear on the main page right now:

"If 'Clerks II' doesn't have quite the scabrous kick of its predecessor, the chance to revisit a classic premise must have renewed the writer in Smith, whose banter here often achieves a sharpness and quality." -- Justin Chang, Variety

"What was scabrously funny and charmingly amateurish in the 1994 black-and-white 'Clerks' is now less so on every level in the color bigger-budgeted sequel..." -- Emanuel Levy, EmanualLevy.com

"A tender, scabrous and very, very funny comedy that picks up 12 years after the original." -- Damon Wise, Empire Magazine (UK)

For the record, as of 10 p.m. PST, July 18, 2006, a Google search for "scabrous" + "Clerks II" yields 117 results. What will it be after Friday???
