    Okay, someone pointed this out to me just now and man is it funny. Short story, Siegel walked out of Clerks II and made a huge disturbance in the process. Smith shot back at Siegel on his blog and websites. But the best part is when Kevin faces off against Siegel on Opie and Anthony. The link is at the bottom of the page.

    Siegel is so senile it's not even funny. He says that he never made any of the quotes on the ABC website. But the best part is that he doesn't even know he is arguing with Kevin Smith on the show. Take a listen.

    I love how Kevin got permission to use Joel's quote about him being a fine filmaker in ads for Clerks 2.

    Too funny. Loved that Joel didn't know that he was talking to Kevin.

    I also agree that it was unprofesional the way he left the movie. You don't like the show, fine leave, you don't have to make a spectical of yourself. That is only attention grabbing and not becoming anyone.

    Interesting event. Of course Kevin Smith is pissed; he's right, Siegal was pretty rude, especially for a dude who reviews movies professionally. Oughta know better.

    On the other hand, Siegal had the stones to take a public dressing-down. He faced up to what he did, and I thought that was classy.

    Whatever, I'm seeing the flick no matter what.

    I wanna know if Siegal was able to sit through White Chicks. If so, he has no excuse.

    While even I don't expect Clerks 2 to be good, that was still very unprofessional of Siegel.

    Siegal confuses me at the end.

    "I'm sorry for what I did, it was wrong" (or something to that effect), and

    "I'm proud of what I did."

    Also, I like how Siegal pretended to be completely caught off guard by some of his punny headlines. He's either clearly embarrassed by them, or he just revealed that his reviews are ghost-written by someone else. Not good, either way. :p

    I love Smith's mastery of the english language. He uses some of the coolest words/phrases ever.
