Abc Critic Siegel And Director Kevin Smith Clash Over Clerks Ii

Today's (Wednesday) New York Post prints director Kevin Smith's online rant over ABC critic Joel Siegel's noisy departure from a press screening of Smith's Clerks II. According to the newspaper's "Page Six" column, Siegel rose from his seat 40 minutes into the movie and declared, "Time to go! ... First movie I've walked out of in 30 [expletive] years." In the scene in question the characters discuss hiring a woman to have sex with a donkey. Siegel described it as "foul and mean and repulsive." Smith responded on his MySpace blog, attacking Siegel's use of puns in his reviews and adding, "How about a little common [expletive] courtesy? You never, never disrupt a movie, simply because you don't like it. Cardinal rule of moviegoing: Shut your [expletive] mouth while the movie's playing." (Clerks received an eight-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival in May.)
