Product Description

Product Description

From Kevin Smith, the acclaimed director of Clerks, comes this outrageous story of two loafers, Jeremy London (The Babysitter) and Jason Lee (Kissing a Fool), who spend way too much time hanging out at the mall. When Brodie (Lee) is dumped by his girlfriend, Shannen Doherty (Heathers, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun), he retreats to the mall with his best friend T.S. (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.


Sophomore jinx hit hard in this second film by Kevin Smith, whose debut Clerks transcended the limits of its setting and budget to become something memorably funny. (Smith followed Mallrats with the wonderful Chasing Amy, so Mallrats definitely had the old curse.) A ramshackle comedy set in a mall, the film follows several story lines involving lovers, enemies, friends, goofballs, and Smith's own "silent" character, who also appeared in Clerks and Chasing Amy. 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 Jason Lee and Joey Lauren Adams. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Mallrats is actually my first Kevin Smith film. This is one of those films I wish I liked less than I do because it is pretty stupid, it inflicts a really doughy Ben Affleck on us, and it gets pretty campy and predictable in the end. It's not hard to see why critics hated it and theatre-goers didn't exactly fill the aisles to see it - the characters may be college age, but this really plays as a teen film, and the deserved R rating kept a good part of the target audience away.

After being dumped by their girlfriends, T.S. (Jeremy London) and Brodie (Jason Lee) decide on a little mall therapy, and so the mallrat adventure begins. T.S. is rather annoying, actually, but Brodie is a great character - a flippant, constantly amusing wise-acre who is frighteningly intelligent in the most obscure of ways. His endless chatter would drive you crazy after a few hours, but, fortunately, you only have to spend an hour and a half with him in the movie. The girls, neither of whom is adequately developed as a character, are also at the mall - as are Jay and Silent Bob and other assorted oddballs. The guys are anxious to try and patch things up with their girls, but each one faces a major obstacle: for T.S., it is his girl's brutish father, while an almost unrecognizably doughy, unimpressive Ben Affleck is laying claim to the girl Brodie thinks is rightly his.

A boatload of hijinx and juvenile situations arise, sexual innuendoes dot the cinematic landscape, and a good time is had by all. There's nothing very original about the plot (apart from the dispensing of romantic advice from the lips of comics legend Stan Lee), but the film is continually entertaining throughout. It really comes down to Jason Lee; as far as I'm concerned, he carries the whole film on his back and almost single-handedly makes everything entertaining.

I remember seeing Mallrats when it was first released and thinking how good it was. It was probably a mix of the lingering Clerks honeymoon and the familiar setting of Eden Prairie, MN. But I've rewatched this film twice in the last week and it's slipped a couple of notches.
Here's why:
1. Mallrats is an exceedingly large production compared to Clerks. Think only about the different locations between the two films. Convenience/Video Store vs. 2 malls in 2 different states. The Mall in MN was somewhat of a ghost town during the filming period so they were able to customize the stores more than a typical mall (Carpet Munchers and Buy Me Toys). The grandure of the production seems to detract from the meat of the film. Whereas Clerks was carried by it's dialogue.
2. Budget was of little concern to Smith (who made Clerks for chump change) for this film. Seemingly unlimited funds facilitated a "kitchen sink" mentality. "We've got enough money to do this, this and this" As opposed to "This or that". So Mallrats is a little fat around the middle.
3. Acting - Be honest. After seeing this movie, did you think you'd ever see Jeremy London in another film? This guy couldn't act his way out of a paper bag. (Probably explains why he's on Seventh Heaven now.) Jason Lee is Jason Lee. Certainly not up for an Oscar, but convincing and charismatic. The rest of the cast is about average. I'm not suggesting we should expect top-notch acting here but at least make it natural.
I can't blame Kevin Smith for wanting to strike while the iron was hot here, but with a little more time and a little more focus, this could have been much better film. Smith may have been in a "This is my one big shot, so I'm gonna show 'em everything I got" mindset.

It's been 8 or 9 years since the last time I saw that film, but I always found it funny. Not in a "perfect" way or a "sweet" sense, but funny for its characters, its dialogs, some of the mayhem, Jay and Silent Bob (always a win for me), and more. This is the film I saw on TV back in the late 90s and introduced me to Smith's universe. I was instantly drawn, being very much a teenager at the time, and still am. It's fun nostalgic times even though watching it now makes the 90s feel like so long ago (which is pretty much true by now). If you've seen a Kevin Smith movie, you know what you're getting yourself into. If not, ask for a friend or netflix it before buying. Plus, it has a fantastic and touching Stan Lee cameo :)

A slacker (Jason London) gets dumped by his girlfriend. He will try everything to win her back in a shopping mall where he and his friend (Jason Lee, owning most of the movie) spend most of their time (not shopping, just being there).

The audio performance of this transfer is quite excellent. Since Smith's films are mostly dialog-driven, it's a no-brainer that this was going to be quite good, but I'm surprised at how good it is.

Not the best video transfer of all time by any stretch of the imagination, Mallrats nevertheless features a nice enough image (better than Clerks, rest assured) even though some moments are murky, lack detail or definition, but overall it's nice to watch it in high definition.

You get a little over 3 hours of visual special features! Plus a commentary track. Just about everything that can be hoped for is delivered, as well as both cuts of the movie. It's excellent stuff and there's no less than 62 minutes of deleted scenes!
