Okay Kev, we get it!
22 July 2015 | by bazmitch23See all my reviews

This doc is basically not about the making of the film, but Kev whining about how the movie didn't do well and how depressed they were. BIG DEAL! KEV, YOU DON'T SEE OTHER FILMMAKERS WHINE ABOUT HOW THEIR MOVIES FLOPPED!

If you're in the entertainment industry, whether it's filmmaking, theatre, books, video games or music, some things you do are to people's tastes and some things aren't.

Mallrats flopped because it had no big names (Smith and Affleck were nobodies at this point) and it was defeated by other big movies coming out the same year, such as Toy Story, GoldenEye and Die Hard 3.

Kev just whines and whines and you're like "I don't care. So what?"

Then they talk about how people discovered this movie on VHS and DVD and how it became a cult favourite. Just like any story about box office flops.

You learn nothing about the making of the film, but rather how it crashed and rose from the ashes.

And Kev was at it again when critics bashed Cop Out. Kev, that movie sucked, but this doc was better than watching that tripe!
