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.
This featurette happens to be on the Mallrats Collector's Edition and the 10th Anniversary edition DVDs.
The title of this documentary basically says it all, its a View Askew look back with most of the people who were involved with the movie.
Its broken up into about four Chapters: 1. They Wanted To Make a Smart Porky's, which explains the films origins.
2.Snootchie Bootchie Nootchies, which talks about how difficult it was to get Jason Mewes In Mallrats.
3. A Friend Who's Making A Movie, which is more or less a Kevin Smith love fest where most of the cast and crew talk about how great Kevin is.
And finally 4. Critic's Schmitics, which talks about the films Post Production and critical and box office crumble.
This is a pretty interesting doc where its just a sit down with some of the people from the cast and some of the crew, talking about how the film was made and how it fell apart upon release. Though along the line, this becomes a problem. There are way to many talking head interviews and very few of the subjects haven't been said to the public, most of the info that is being said in the documentary is stuff that we have already heard before. But still, if you're a fan of Kevin Smith (like I am) you'll like the featurette, and its a good way to kill 21 minutes.
