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).Written by
In the scene where the cop cars converge on the mall,watch the cop from the car close to the camera. His hat is starting to tilt as he emerges from the car and as he runs it completely comes off his head with what seems to be a white "headband" inside that falls away from the hat and both of these are ignored by that cop and the succeeding ones.

I took you shopping all the time!
[Banging his hands against the elevator wall]
You took me where you went shopping, you jerk! You think I care what store in that shitpit dirt mall has the latest Godzilla bootlegs? Do you call eating pizza in the same dive pizzeria every night eating out? Do I give a shit when two major comic book labels are crossing over characters, selling two editions of the same book in varied-ink chromium covers? I'm a girl, damn it! I wanna do girly things! Like fix up ...

The DVD also features an alternate take of the video of Tricia Jones (Rene Humphrey) and Shannen Hamilton (Ben Affleck) having sex shown after the game show. This version shows Ben Affleck in a dress. See more »
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 out how.
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 :)
