Storyline

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).

Crazy Credits

As with Kevin Smith's "Askewniverse" movies, the credits end with one of Jason Mewes' lines from the film. This time, he says, "Come, Son of Jor-El! Kneel before Zod! Snootchie bootchies--hehehehehhh!" See more »

Alternate Versions

DVD Collector Edition includes almost an hour of outtake footage, including an entirely different opening setup for the movie where T.S. meets Brandi over a rooftop while her father is hosting a luncheon for the governor of New Jersey, hoping to get funds for his public access cable programs. T.S. is mistaken by the bodyguards for a sniper and the governor is hospitalized in the ensuing mayhem. See more »

User Reviews

Oh please everybody, this movie is great!
16 May 1999 | by AdrianeSee all my reviews

To everybody who did not like this movie: You are not obviously Kevin Smith fans. I am, and everyone one of the NJ3 are great. This one is just different. Shannen Doherty is surprisingly cool in this one, and Jason Lee is hysterical. Jay and Silent Bob are hysterical as usual, and everyone else is great. Watch if you are a Smith fan, just keep an open mind.
