This review is from: Mallrats [DVD] (DVD)
I first saw Mallrats a few years ago on a sky movie channel since then I have searched high and low to find it on DVD finally I need search no more I have found the holy grail.
So, the movie would never be considered worthy of an oscar but there is more to a movie than exceptional acting. Some performances are very good Jason Lee (Brodie) is arguably the most hilarious out of the cast including such luminaries as Joey Lauren Adams, Ben Affleck and Claire Forlani before they reached their present day highs. Oh and those two characters that have graced every Kevin Smith movie to date Jay and Silent Bob add a few laughs in what is one of their major roles in any of Smith's films (with the exception of Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob stike back).
The only suspect acting is that of Jeremy London who Smith, quite rightly, savaged for such an inept performance.
The plot is not very original girl dumps boy, boy mopes about, boy thinks of way to win her back and a cheesy Blind Date rip off gameshow. Mallrats is not the most structured of movies but it is the dialogue and the Jay and Silent Bob slapstick that makes this film hilarious and is why I have searched for so long for this movie.
