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).

Trivia

Originally, William Atherton was Kevin Smith's first choice to play Jared Svenning. Atherton chose not to do it, because the film was aimed at a teenage audience. See more »

Goofs

Brandi tells T.S. that the female contestant for her dad's show had an embolism pop in her head in mid backstroke. Embolisms occurs when an object (usually a clot) migrates from one part of the body (through circulation) and causes a blockage (occlusion) of a blood vessel in another part of the body. There is no popping involved. Brandi is apparently confusing an embolism with an aneurysm (a localized, blood-filled dilation (balloon-like bulge) of a blood vessel caused by disease or weakening of the vessel wall). See more »

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

Three versions of the introduction were scripted (only two filmed). The original, short opening had TS and Brodie blowing a lead on Collegiate Quizbowl when Brodie mispronounces 'Biscay' as 'Bisquick'. He trips over a mike while going to fight a Seton Hall heckler, and electrocutes the host. This opening remains unfilmed. The studio requested above mentioned opening (with the Governor's Ball and the shooting). Much footage had to be dubbed, reshot, or edited because of the opening change (it eliminated an entire subplot as camera crews chased TS, and people recognized him though often for the wrong crime). The third ending had two variants in and of itself. The movie would open near the end, with Brodie on the stage of Truth Or Date, where he would introduce the cast via voice overs, then tell about himself, his birth in a fast food joint that was now a tanning salon, how the place changed since then, and how he was the only constant. A second version featured a completely different voice over commentary, relating a story about how his father had been hurled from his wife's grandparents house after kissing the grandmother shortly after having oral sex. (This story is in the first variant, but Brodie says it was he who was caught.) A TV version mangles a great many scenes, editing all the language, drug references, most of the violence, and any product placement (the Diet Coke cup is cropped out, the references to Jaws and Universal are pulled, and some very awkward zooming is used on Ivana).

Wow is the only thing to say here.
28 March 2006 | by incomprehendibleSee all my reviews

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 :)
