Hilarious independent film that ignited the career of filmmaker Kevin Smith. Told from the point of view of security cameras, it follows the whacky adventures of employees who work the endless hours it takes to keep a convenience store going, while also managing their own personal lives. Hilarious dialogue as well as some pretty screwed up situations (the girlfriend who accidentally has sex with the wrong guy in the employee bathroom is a riot) keep this a cut above the usual slacker-comedy that was getting too popular in the nineties.
