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.

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.
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.
Jason Lee is the funniest guy on the planet!!
The film is a silly teen comedy about two guys who both get dumped and decide to cheer themselves up by visiting their local shopping mall. Whilst there they devise ridiculous plans to get their girlfriends back whilst encountering a strange cast of characters including the now well known Jay and Silent Bob. I love the film and appreciate the geeky pop culture references and the cameo from Stan Lee.
As for the Blu Ray release, I was disappointed that this is just the standard edition. I have a dvd version that included a directors cut of the film and a cast Q&A session. Why these are not on the Blu Ray I do not know. The film itself looks great though and I like to have the Blu Rays if they are available. I hope in the future a more complete version is released for collectors.
What's right about it? Jason Lee and Jeremy London are razor-sharp as the two no-hoper lead males improbably named after characters from "Jaws". The usual collection of "Kevin Smith's mates" (everyone from shrill-but-bubbly Joey Lauren Adams to the splendidly slimy Ben Affleck) allow themselves to be the butt of the jokes with effortless grace. The real star, of course, is the mall (complete with inappropriately named chain-stores) and its principal denizens, Jay and Silent Bob - here given their biggest pre-Dogma role and allowed to wreak havoc with the doggedness of comic-book villains and the effectiveness of Laurel and Hardy.
Negatives. There are a few too many "gross-out" gags for my personal liking - Kevin Smith humour at its best is razor-sharp, and doesn't need to rely on references to bodily functions. The constant references to comic-book subculture, whilst clever in themselves, may be just a little TOO clever for an audience not reared on first editions of Spider-Man (although having Stan the Man himself as a guest star was a stroke of inspiration).Read more ›
