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
The studio almost replaced Jason Mewes (Jay) with Seth Green. Kevin Smith insisted that Mewes should play Jay, but the studio made Smith take auditions for the role. Breckin Meyer also auditioned. In the end, all concerned agreed that Mewes was right for the part. See more »
When they do the crane shot down to the food court from above there isn't anybody behind Silent Bob and Trish, but when the camera comes in there are people cleaning behind them. See more »
I call you all time!
"Rene, my mom's asleep. Come over." You call that romantic? When was the last time you pulled out my chair, or told me I was beautiful?
And this guy does all this in a day?
This guy already introduced me to his mother.

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 deleted scene showed Tricia Jones flirting and having sex with the security guard, La Fours. This explains the final segment in the 'where are they now' ending sequence, showing La Fours looking lovingly at Tricia during the book signing. 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 :)
