* AuthorAppeal: The movie was written and directed by Creator/KevinSmith, one of the most famous ''Film/StarWars'' fans on Earth.

** Randal does his little nervous laugh ("Nyeh!") from ''WesternAnimation/ClerksTheAnimatedSeries'' when he tells Becky "Yeah, I've waited on your brother too."

* StunnedSilence: Randal, series snarker, who has a smart ass retort for almost anything, is simply rendered near speechless by the "Pillowpants" discussion.

Although judging by his enthusiasm when he goes to tell Dante, he might just mean he's reveling in hearing Elias say the stupidest thing ever with utter sincerity.

* {{Flanderization}}: Some find that Randal got a little dumber between the first movie and the second.
** Blame ''WesternAnimation/ClerksTheAnimatedSeries'', where this happened for sure.
* ForegoneConclusion: [[spoiler: It crosses into Tearjerker territory, but if you've seen the first movie, then it's obvious just from watching the first twenty or so minutes of this that Dante either never got back together with Veronica or Caitlin or didn't end up staying with them if he did.]]

* AlternateDVDCommentary: Kevin Smith, Scott Mosier and Jeff Anderson recorded a podcast for fans to download to their MP3 players and listen to in the movie theater, complete with Smith telling the listener which scenes to take a bathroom break during. For whatever reason, the idea was scrapped, but the recording appeared on the DVD proper.

*** Variant: As mentioned in the commentary, the entire film was desaturated after filming, because the colors were far too bright and cheery. The dance scene where everything is brighter? That's how everything actually looked!
