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.
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
When Willam (Ethan Suplee) gets startled, he says "poopie trim". This is a reference to an inside joke between Kevin Smith and script supervisor Carol Banker. See more »
The 3D picture is not a sailboat but three rows of various 3D objects. From left to right, top row they are: diamond, sphere, diamond, and star. The last item from middle row looks to be a beach ball. And finally the bottom row is a series of four 3-D undulations. See more »
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 director would like to thank:
God - for another opportunity to tell my stupid stories. Scott - for deciding not to hike around the world. Jim - for treating us like the Coens as opposed to the twenty-something know-nothings we really are. Sean - for bringing a pedigree to the project. Pierson - for keeping me pure. Mom and dad - for having sex all those years ago Kristin - for playing "Rene" to my "Brodie" far too many times than she should have. Bob - for laughing during the pitch. Dave - for even prettier pictures than the first bunch. Walt - for being the "Brodie" template, dixie cup and all. Joey - for being my "equiator." The cast and crew - for humoring me. The front credit artists - for lending us phat credibility in the world of comics. Cotty - for the cool book Fitz - for the fan-boy trading cards The audience - for showing up. And lastly... John Landis and John Hughes - for giving me something to do throughout my youth on friday nights. See more »
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).

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.
