From director Kevin Smith (Clerks), comes the outrageous story of two loafers who spend way too much time hanging out at the mall. When Brodie (Jason Lee) is dumped by his girlfriend (Shannen Doherty), he retreats to the mall with his best friend T.S. (Jeremy 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.

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! These days it's rare to see such lengthy bonus materials except on mega box office successes (forget Marvel, they never gave much after 2010's Iron Man 2). So it's nice to see as much features as one could possibly want. If you're an extra aficionado as much as I am, here are a few directors you might want to look at who have excellent films AND bonus features: Peter Jackson, James Cameron, Guillermo DelToro, Edgar Wright, Kevin Smith (D'uh) and David Fincher.
For now, this Mallrats edition has just about everything any Smith fan could wish for. This reprises just about everything from the previous special edition DVD (which had easter eggs, I don't know if they transferred them on blu-ray though).
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.
