Joey Lauren Adams,
Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
Brodie Bruce, a Sega and comic book obsessed college student, and his best friend, TS Quint, are both dumped by their girlfriends on the same day, and to deal with their loss, they both go to the local mall. Along the way, they meet up with some friends, including Willam, a guy who stares at Magic Eye pictures, desprately trying to see the hidden image; Gwen, one of TS's ex-girlfriends; and Jay & Silent Bob, of Clerks fame. Eventually, they decide to try and win back their significant others, and take care of their respective nemesises (TS's girlfriend's father, and a store clerk who hates the two for not having any shopping agenda).

[Looking at comics]
These should have boards in them. Bloody savage.

this is an incredible movie and if your a clerks fan (which I'm
assuming is the only Kevin smith film you've seen because its
blasphemous to watch them out of order) then this is even better.
mallrats is the kind of movie you watch once on DVD and don't take it
out of the drawer, because you know you'll wanna watch it later. its
laugh out loud funny and anyone remotely interested in the inner
workings of a geek or, like me, you are a geek, then this will give
voice to the geek generation and make it cool. Recently, The OC has
made comic books cool in the form of Seth Cohen. but before there was
Seth, there was Brodie.
easily the greatest character lee has ever played and the best
character that Smith has ever written, Brodie is obsessed with two
things, Comics and himself. and as long as the two are together, he
doesn't care. which is exactly what must be changed. ill let you find
jay and silent bob make a welcome comeback in a slightly more central
role with a lot more to do. with hilarious results.
i originally put 8 for this movie. but thinking about it again its a 10
and its going in my movies :) l8er days PaUl :)
