Product Description

Kevin Smith's follow-up to 'Clerks', his hugely successful no-budget debut, flopped at the box office, but became a sleeper hit after its video release. When Brodie and T.S. are dumped by their girlfriends, they take to hanging around the food court of the local shopping mall. They then hit upon a scheme to win back their lost loves, using two delinquents, Silent Bob (Kevin Smith himself) and Jay.


The "sophmore jinx" hit hard for this second film by Kevin Smith, whose debut Clerks transcended the limits of its setting and budget to become memorably funny and a cult classic. (Smith followed Mallrats with the wonderful Chasing Amy, only to be cursed again with the appalling Dogma. Clearly he's settling into the same one-off rhythm that afflicts the Star Trek movies.) A ramshackle comedy set in a mall, Mallrats follows several storylines involving lovers, enemies, friends, goofballs, and Smith's own character "Silent Bob", who also appeared in all the other Smith films. A heavy self-consciousness weighs on everything, as if Smith forgot how to make obscenity funny instead of tedious. Still, it's nice to see some of the director's film family on screen, among them Ben Affleck before he was famous, Jason Lee and Joey Lauren Adams. --Sally Chatsworth --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stupid and funny 25 Feb 2002
By A Customer
This film is excellent, and it's easy to see why Kevin Smith and his J and Silent Bob characters are such cult figures. Very funny from start to finish.
Top performances from pretty much everyone. Jason Lee has had a good few major films under his belt now (Almost Famous, Vanilla Sky for example), but he really shines as the hilarious comic-book obsessed Brodie. Jay and Silent Bob turn in, as usual, a highly amusing performance, with imitating quotes galore. Joey Lauren Adams is excellent as the blonde bimbo, and Claire Forlani is just as good as the pressured "daddy's girl". Ben Affleck debuts and is the subject of much mockery as the giant bully who proceeds to terrorise Lee and steal his girlfriend, Shannon Doherty. But Jeremy London is poor - in fact, even though he's the main character the viewer ends up getting annoyed with his introspectiveness.
The DVD extras are lame. Unless you're a DVD perfectionist there's no real difference between the VHS and DVD extras.

5.0 out of 5 stars Say, Would YOU Like a Chocolate Covered Pretzel? 14 Mar 2004
If you only learn one thing in life let it be this: Critics do't always get it right. Go with your feelings as to wether you will enjoy something and you will probably be correct. Critics HATED this film,and yey here it is still selling 10 years later. Kevin Smith is a genius in my book, but had I listened to those damn critics I may never have realised as he still gets very little coveage in the UK. I love this kind of thing! The humour is so sharp and the film is like a cartoon or comic. Check this out and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars IF YOU DON'T ALREADY OWN THIS FILM BUY IT NOW! 31 Mar 2003
This film is another masterpiece in comedy by Kevin Smith.
The story of mallrats centres around 2 friends - T.S & Broadie, who have both recently been dumped by their girlfriends, while T.S is desperate to get his girl back Broadie is to arrogant to admit he wants his back 2. Broadie takes T.S to the mall to help them forget about their estranged loved ones but this is where their epic quest to get their girlfriends back begins with hilarious consequences, enlisting the help of the infamous Jay and Silent Bob along the way. This film is a rollin on the floor laugh out loud comedy maybe not quite as funny as Smith's Jay and Silent Bob strike back but still up their with the funniest comedys of all time. Buy it now its great!...................oh its a sailboat(insider joke) you'll have 2 buy the movie to get it

4.0 out of 5 stars Profane but Hilarious 3 Oct 2003
With Clerks, Kevin Smith managed to transcend his low budget to produce a film that relied on script more than special effects - and Mallrats is much the same. Obviously the budget was increased from Smith's debut outing, though not to the usual stellar Hollywood levels. Once again he relies on his (very sharp) script and sympathetic but funny characters - Jason Lee is a stand-out as the acerbic Brodie. Obviously it wouldn't be part of the View Askew-niverse without ever-presents Jay and Silent Bob, and the pair are present and correct in Mallrats.
Many people call Mallrats inferior to Clerks (possibly), others call it a bad movie (definitely not).
I think that Mallrats has a brilliant script, hilarious scenarios springing up from a relatively mundane basic premise, and a whole host of memorable and funny characters. The acting is (on the whole......TS) excellent, and if you can look past the - admittedly prolific - profanity, there is an excellent film here.
A particular treat for those who have also watched other films in the series (e.g. Clerks, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back).

1.0 out of 5 stars blu-ray disc not the film 11 July 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Big fan of Mallrats; one of the few, it would seem, who saw it in the cinema. Have bought more than one version on DVD, including the alternative cut and even bought it on HD-DVD.

This disc is a "vanilla" disc, in the extreme. Perhaps because of the fact that the cover used was not the same as the original awful R2 dvd release I thought this might at least have the extras available on R1 DVD (if not the extended cut). Wrong. No "featurettes", no deleted scenes, no 10th anniversary goodies, no extended cut (no surprise) but worst of all no commentary! Yes, no commentary. No English (or any) words on the menu, for example to select chapters you choose the symbol that looks like an open book.

Picture is sharper, colours are richer and the DTS-HD sound is an improvement but that is the absolute minimum I expect from a blu-ray hi-def release.

A wasted opportunity.

5.0 out of 5 stars kevin smith is some kind of god 20 Oct 2003
this movie is awesome. it is so much more than the no-brainer comedies seen so often in this day and age. the many in-jokes reference the other movies made by kevin smith, and so they are all worth watching. the only faults i can find are that several scenes were cut for the Uk release of the film, and so several jokes and references do not make sense, as they refer to incidents not included in the movie. also, the acting is dire from brandy's father. however, the fast paced, tongue in cheek humour, combined with jay and silent bob makes this movie one of the best comedies in years. buy it

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Kevin Smith Film Ever? 20 May 2003
I view this film as an aquired taste. If you like Kevin Smith, you will Love this film, as it is by far his best work. The story is both chaotic yet at the same time seamless. Everything that happens in this movie has some purpose. This also fields Jason Lee's best ever role in the form Brodie, the self obbsessed annoying geek you can't help but love. He is constantly given reason to hate him yet it seems to add depth to his character. it also comes packed with cameos from Kevin Smith's buddies, such as Ben Affleck.Much better than any of his other work, all hail Kevin Smith
