Mallrats had to have been one of the best movies I'd seen. Interestingconversation. Funny as hell. Unique. I liked this movie the best of all ofKevin Smith's Jersey flicks. I loved the movie and I gave it a 10. Quitepossibly the greatest comedy I've ever seen.
A complete misfire.
Mallrats is Kevin Smith's sellout to Hollywood. But, of course that doesn'tmake it bad. To be quite blunt, I prefer Mallrats to the over-rated AmericanPie. Mallrats follows the adventures of the recently-dumped T.S.Quint(Jeremy London) and his slacker buddy who has also been dumped, BrodieBruce(Jason Lee). They decide to numb their pain by going to the local mallto chill. T.S. discovers that his former girlfriend is going to be auctionedoff at her father's "Dating Game" ripoff show, which is going to bebroadcasted live at the mall. T.S. and Brodie run into Jay and Silent Bob,and enlist them to destroy the gameshow. This is where the hilarity ensues.The movie isn't as good as Clerks, but it's a helluva good ride. Completewith Easter Bunny Bashing, topless fortune telling, Stan "The Man" Lee,comic book, Sega, and a very obscure reference to Clerks. NOTE!! Brian O'Halloran (Dante in Clerks) shows up in the movie as Gill Hicks, an obviousrelative to Dante Hicks.And don't miss the hat that T.S. picks up in the Flea Market.
Mallrats is the story of Brodie and T.S., two pretty much average twenty-somethings who have somehow managed to get themselves dumped by the women they love, and how they find slight comfort, and eventual resolution, in the mall. The storyline is hilarious, and with wit and intelligence throughout, it is completely tolerable to even the most adamant anti-silliness movie-goer. Their mishaps in love and in the mall may not be all that realistic, but if you take just a moment to think about it, you'll realize that they're not really SUPPOSED to be.. it's just supposed to be funny. (However, in Chasing Amy, everything is supposed to be realistic, and although there is humor, the storyline is to be taken seriously. You'll have a pretty hard time relating to the promiscuous, carefree lead in Chasing Amy, but it probably won't be that hard to picture yourself getting dumped and loafing around at the mall later that day, as in Mallrats.) Continue watching Mallrats and you'll be dealt the cards of wonderful perfomances from Shannen Doherty and Ben Affleck, hilarious comebacks, awesome quotes, a rapidly moving storyline, and awesome work from Jay and Silent Bob in aiding T.S. and Brodie's plea for their ex-girlfriends to be their girlfriends again. Don't forget random insertion of various actors from Kevin Smith's "family" at View Askew. This movie is hilarious, hilarious, hilarious, and it comes highly recommended. Kevin Smith actually did what he's good at very well here, as opposed to the next film in the series, which was a huge and utter disappointment.
Whoever says this movie sucks can bite me. Seriously. It's not Citizen Kane, it's not even Chasing Amy or Clerks for that matter, but it's a funny, mindless teen flick. Jason Lee, is as always, a GOD. He's quickly surpassing Edward Norton as my favorite living actor, although Norton probably is a lot more talented.The DVD is superb. There's over an hour of deleted scenes, some okay commentary, and some other nice features. Overall, one of the best DVD's out there, and certianly the best one that I own.
They're Mallrats! Mallrats is a seriously funny movie that will make you laugh your a-- off but of, to date, Clerks, Chasing Amy, Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back Mallrats has got to be the most...well, bad Smith film. Its not that its just totally bad and you shouldn't give it the 1 hr and 36 mins to watch even the video version, but compared to Smith's other films Mallrats is the one that seems so out of place. Perhaps that is because this was only his second movie, but Clerks was his first and it is by far better than Mallrats. Mallrats, I believe, was Smith's first shot at a slap stick comdey, unlike any other film he wrote or directed besides Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back which came years after Mallrats. The movie starts out as friends Brodie and T.S. both get dumped by their girlfriends on the same day, but for different reasons. Brodie because he's a comic book reading, no job having, sega obessed loser who slips his girlfriend in his bedroom window at night and makes her get up and leave in the morning so his mom, who he lives with at over 25 something years of age, won't know she was there...'cause he hasn't told his mom about his girlfriend!!! T.S. is a bit better, but not by much. Under some kind of freak circumstances he indirectly caused the star of his girlfriends father's love connection like TV show not to appear on the show anymore...causing his girlfriend to have to take the girls place when they had plans to go on vacation, where T.S. was planning on proposing. Both down and out after being dumped by both their girlfriends, Brodie and T.S. they decide to go to the mall where after walking around and getting into several funny situations already Brodie and T.S. decide their going to get their girlfriends back, and you'll laugh your a-- off as you watch them try. If you are a Kevin Smith fan and haven't seen this film, then its a must. But if you have no idea who Kevin Smith is you shouldn't watch this video before, say...Chasing Amy, or even Clerks, 'cause Mallrats just might make you not want to watch the other Smith films and that just would be bad for you 'cause you'd be missing out on four other great films.
Mallrats is the second film in Kevin Smith New Jersey trilogy (though since it is five movies and a cartoon series, I don't think trilogy fits anymore), and his first large budget studio film. And it is pretty good, though the weakest of his movies. It is loaded with the dialogue that Kevin Smith is good at writing and has strong performances by Jason Lee and Jeremy London. Jay and Silent Bob have larger roles in this film than they did in clerks, and there is a cameo appearance by Stan Lee. Ben Affleck's performance is weak. It loses a little bit at the ending, but it's still a film that I like. I don't think it is for everyone, but if you like Smith's films, and haven't seen this one yet, you definitely need to. Like Clerks, this is a strong dvd. The commentary track contains Kevin Smith, Jason Lee, Jason Mewes, Ben Affleck (though his role in the film is so small, I don't understand why he was brought in for commentary), Scott Mosier (producer), and Vincent Pereira. This is a better commentary track than that on Clerks. There's an hour of deleted scenes, introduced by Kevin Smith, a video, and a few trailers and featurettes. If you like the movie, then this dvd is definitely worth buying.
if you want laugh so hard that your stomach will hurt hurt go rent MALLRATS. friggin hilarious, especially since we get to see jay and silent bob again. if u like this movie check out some other kevin smith classis - CLERKS DOGMA JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK p.s. please dont post saying i forgot chasing amy, cause i didnt forget it - it just SUCKED
I really don't understand people that call Kevin Smith a sellout for makingthis movie. Sure, It had a bigger budget than clerks, but compared to mostmovies the budget was still extremely small. This is one of the funniestmovies I have ever seen, and I think that it is just as good of movie asClerks or Chasing Amy. I must have seen Mallrats over 30 times and it isstill as funny now as when I first watched it.
Mallrats was an excellent film. Kevin Smith put together a great film. OnlyKevin can go from dick and fart jokes to a enlightening line like "Hellhathno fury like a woman's scorn for Sega" and make it work. Jason Lee'sportrayal of Brodie and the great one-liners from Jason Mewes (Jay) and theantics of his trusty sidekick Silent Bob (Smith) make this movie worthwatching.
Though not as popular as the rest of Kevin Smith's movies, Mallrats is everybit as funny. The dialogue is so harsh and witty, every scene containssomething to laugh at. Sure, it has a Hollywood ending, but it is still donewith Smith's own unique style, and it is damn funny. It seems it's unanimoushere that Jason Lee is the star of this show, as he is in Chasing Amy. Hehas the funniest dialogue I've seen in a long time, and he takes the moviefrom an already funny level and elevates it to the ranks of Clerks, Dumb andDumber, and other comedy classics. The game show scene, while maybe a tadunbelievable (who cares) is the funniest scene in the movie. "If you weremaking whoopee, what noise would you make?" "what's whoopee?, you meanlike f**k?" It may not sound hilarious, but watch the movie, and you'llsee that it is. Jay and Silent Bob are funny as ever, and the re-appearanceof Dante (as a different character) as the third contestant on the game showis a nice touch. Overall, just as good as Chasing Amy, and on par withClerks (maybe slightly behind), and should get more credit than it does.9/10
This movie is the best of the Kevin Smith films (although many criticsdisagree) and it is in my top ten funniest films of all time. This movie hasso many funny characters, like Jay and Silent Bob, the wierd stoner comicbook fans who want to act like superheroes, and a really perverted guy whotalks about superhero anatomy. I think that I would have liked this movieeven more if I was into comic books (a theme in the film) but even thoughI'm not it is still completely hillarious.If you can handle very r-rated language,See it now!!
this m,ovie was great it was the best of Smith's movies and my favorite movie and the DVD specials like deleted senes mak it even better it even has a different begining u can watch that is better than the one they put in
First off to Mr. Lapitan above, while you are correct that Mallrats haslessof an indie feel in the cinematography of it, it does have a very indiefeelto the writing. Secondly Chasing Amy is not the immediate "sequel" toclerks, Mallrats was. As is actually noted on this page.Mallrats was a big disapointment to most people after clerks, while Idisagree that it sucked, it wasn't quite up to the same level. The later"viewaskewniverse" movies are of much better quality and writing. Onmany ofthe following DVD commentaries, as well as interviews with Kevin, heconstantly rags on how bad Mallrats was as well.
This movie is a classic, its about 2 guys who get dumped by theirgirlfriends, so they decide to go to the mall, and of course thats whenallthe mayhem happens.Jason Lee was great as Brodie, you just couldn't shut him up, he had themost one-liners and his stories were funny as well- the plane, thecat..veryfunny, Jeremy London wasn't bad as TS, wasn't a bad character, he has hisspots as well, Shannon Doherty was pretty good as Jason Lee's girlfriend-watch out for the elevator scene with Jason Lee, Jason Eewes and KevinSmith(the writer and director) were great as Jay and Silent Bob, Jay had somanyone liners I've lost count-look out when they try to trash the stage,ClaireForlani was good as Brandy, had some good spots especially on the gameshow.Stan Lee makes a guest appearance, after he is signing autographs at 'TheMall' as said by Brodie.I never liked Ben Affleck, the only good bit he was in, was well at theend, onthe video screen, you have to see it, its real funny.There are so many characters, and they were heaps funny.Altogether a good film, with many great quotes, a must for any Kevin Smithfans.
when i saw clerks for the first time i didn't think it possible to make a movie that orignal and funny with the release of mallrats i stood corected and when i found out the both were written and directed by kevin smith i was blown away. As a 16 year old from glasgow i should not really have seen kevins outstanding work but all i can say is that I THANK THR LORD i have as every movie is in its own way genius,funny(to say the least)and well amazing. Keep up the good work kevin i am looking forward to seeing and enjoying jay and bob strike back.
Kevin Smith has done it again, with a great script and superb acting byJason Lee and Jeremy London, Mallrats delivers everything you've come toexpect from Kevin Smith. I've seen this movie a million times and I neverget sick of it, it's fun to watch and always makes me laugh. Seeit!
The movie has a few amusing '70s references and there's a wonderfully weird sequence featuring a topless fortune-teller. Overall, though, moviegoers can find much better deals.
This sparky if flawed effort deserves re-evaluation.
I have seen and love all of Smith's flicks. This is by far the worse. If itweren't for Jason Lee (just a little bit less than the performance inChasing Amy) this movie would be complete rat droppings.The dialogue is good, but not delivered with the pizazz of other Smithfilms. I think Smith films rank like this: 1. Dogma (1999) 2. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001)3. Chasing Amy (1997) 4. Clerks. (1994) 5. Mallrats (1995) I think it safe to say that Kevin Smith, unlike a lot of movie makers, isgetting better with time and experience. Big budgets help too. Let's see howFletch turns out.
