Clerks Sequel Makes Critic Walk Out for First Time in 30 Years

Good Morning America film critic Joel Siegel could only stand forty minutes of Kevin Smith's "Clerks II" yesterday at a screening in NYC, and made a fuss about it.

Smith has a blog.

Apparently, rather than quietly exit, both Joel and his Cum-Catcher (my slang for the fancy kind of mustache he sports) made a big stink about walking out, calling as much attention to himself as possible, and being generally pretty disruptive. Check this shit out: roughly forty minutes into the flick, when Randal orders up the third act donkey show, Siegel bellowed to his fellow critics "Time to go!'' and "This is the first movie I've walked out of in 30 fucking years!''

Now, I don't need Joel Siegel to suck my dick the way he apparently sucks M. Night's, gushing over his flick before he's even seen it; but shit, man - how about a little common fucking courtesy?

This morning Siegel appeared on the Opie & Anthony show which Smith happened to also be on.Hilarity ensued (mp3).
