I first saw "Mallrats" approximately one year ago on t.v and was blown away. To this day the plot and character detail continues to astound and entertain. "Mallrats" introduced me to all of Kevin Smith's work(for the uneducated out there, Kevin Smith is a genius)and i am now a proud owner of many videos, dvds and, best of all, comic books(vital!!) "Mallrats" features a brilliant young cast of virtually unknowns(Shannen Doherty and Ben Affleck being the exceptions) and a rocking soundtrack. You are now probably wondering, "Why only 4 stars?" and the reason is that this edition of the dvd is very dissappointing as there is absolutely no extras or anything to differenciate this release from the vhs version. Still, don't let that put you off from getting this landmark release - I promise you won't regret it, would I lie to you?
