This 21 minute documentary on the making of the movie "Mallrats" can be found on the now out of print Collector's Edition of that aforementioned movie. Featuring interviews with various cast and crew members their's a lot of pathetic comments thrown around like how the film would be a "smart Porky's" which is sacrilege as far as I'm concerned as Porky's is and always will be a classic, whereas Mallrats isn't and never will be one. Kevin Smith also tells of how the "powers that be" screwed his movie up. Kevin, be a man, and live up to your mistakes. While we're at it take blame for your crappy "Jersey Girl". It didn't bomb because of some Bennifer thing. It bombed because you're a one-trick pony and you strayed from said one-trick of dick and fart jokes. Deflate your ego a tad bit, bro. Back to the documentary, I learned nothing from it.

My Grade: D-
