About the Movie
From Kevin Smith, the acclaimed director of Clerks, comes this outrageous story of two loafers, Jeremy London and Jason Lee, who spend way too much time hanging out at the mall. When Brodie (Lee) is dumped by his girlfriend, Shannen Doherty, he retreats to the mall with his best friend TS (London), whose girlfriend has also left him. Between brooding and visits to the food court, the unmotivated twosome decide to win their girlfriends back with the help of the ultimate delinquents, Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) and Jay (Jason Mewes), whose continuing adventures take the word "nuisance" to a whole new level.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Mallrats mixes clever bits and an appealing quirkiness (which goes a long way) with gross-out practical jokes, needless repetition and obvious padding, since it has no real plot.
Rotten: Smith has slicked up his follow-up vision of Slackerville USA, but the outcome is nowhere near as brash and original.
Fresh: A disjointed but infectious series of comic vignettes, toilet humor, practical jokes, sight gags, even a sort of grunge variation on Keystone Kops slapstick.
Fresh: This sparky if flawed effort deserves re-evaluation.
One of my generations calling cards.
Not so often does a film talk a generation, about their lives and become a cult classic. kevin Smith is a writer and director who saw the world around him and places it on screen, in a smart and funny interpretation of life as he saw it.
Though many seem to scoff at this instalment of the Smith films (Other films of his, as often happens with director/writers, have missed the mark quite substancially, yet every one is worthy of viewing, even Jersey Girl) This is a quirky take on the Grunge lifestyle of the early 90's, love, friendship, and the love of the shopping mall.
Kevin's influence by Richard Linklater's Slacker is evident in this film. This is one of those films that is best watched with the rest of the Smith films in the order they were made. Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and finally Clerks II.
One of my favorite movies growing up
