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).

Quotes

Brandi: Suitor number 3, is your kiss like a soft breeze, a firm handshake or a jackhammer?
Gil Hicks: Definitely a jackhammer, I'm in there with some pressure and when I'm done, you're not the same as before. You're changed.
Brodie: Where do you come up with this shit? That's the cheesiest response to an honest question I have ever heard. I saw you kiss and it wasn't anything like that.
Bob Summers: [Chuckling] Suitor #2, you'll have to wait until you're addressed before you respond.

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).

User Reviews

Oh please everybody, this movie is great!
16 May 1999 | by AdrianeSee all my reviews

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.
