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
Although Rene's surname is never mentioned on-screen, the cast list gives it as Mosier, a possible reference to producer Scott Mosier, but more likely a reference to Kevin Smith's ex-girlfriend, and Mosier's sister, Kristen Mosier, whom Smith noted on the DVD commentary track was the inspiration for Rene.

The board advertising Ivannah's talents refers to 'rhunestones', a word not to be found in the dictionary. However, rather than a typo it is probably a deliberate melding of 'rhinestone' (a fake diamond) and 'runestone' (a stone with a runic inscription). See more »
Silent Bob stole the schematics from some foolish carpenter and found a weakness just like the fucking Death Star. You knock this crossbeam out and, fuckin' bickety-bam, the whole stage comes crashing down.
Well we were thinking of something simple, but hey, if you want to destroy the stage, we're all for that.

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 »
A version aired on USA removes all major obscene language. The USA Network Version moves the shot of Ivannah "consulting" her breasts to an angle where her breasts are not visible. There are two different versions of the scene where the tape of Shannon Hamilton and Tricia Jones having sex in circulation. The first version is in the theatrical version and features the two performing anal sex. The second version is used in the USA version and involves them finishing up having sex, and removes all references to anal sex. See more »
That is, if you are into either Comics, Science Fiction or Shopping Malls.
The basic idea is simple: Two dumped guys try to win their girl-friends back, and their brilliant strategy is to hang around in the local shopping mall.
What makes the movie work is the wonderful mix of slap stick humor, intelligent puns and gross sexual innuendos. The actors are excellent in their roles, and I was surprised to see Ben Affleck and Claire Forlani, two coming actors, credited for supporting roles.
For a comic fan this movie is a awfully funny experience. But I can imagine that the film looses some of its appeal when you are not familiar with the Marvel and DC comic heroes and the strange passion (and science) of collecting comic books.
And to everybody who has also failed in seeing a sailboat in those dumb 3-D-pictures, this movie provides some comfort...
