Wow is the only thing to say here. (by incomprehendible)
this is an incredible movie and if your a clerks fan which I'm assuming is the only Kevin smith film you've seen because its blasphemous to watch them out of order then this is even better. mallrats is the kind of movie you watch once on DVD and don't take it out of the drawer, because you know you'll wanna watch it later. its laugh out loud funny and anyone remotely interested in the inner workings of a geek or, like me, you are a geek, then this will give voice to the geek generation and make it cool. Recently, The OC has made comic books cool in the form of Seth Cohen. <more>
but before there was Seth, there was Brodie.easily the greatest character lee has ever played and the best character that Smith has ever written, Brodie is obsessed with two things, Comics and himself. and as long as the two are together, he doesn't care. which is exactly what must be changed. ill let you find out how.jay and silent bob make a welcome comeback in a slightly more central role with a lot more to do. with hilarious results.i originally put 8 for this movie. but thinking about it again its a 10 and its going in my movies : l8er days PaUl :
This movie is really extremely funny.That is, if you are into either Comics, Science Fiction or Shopping Malls.The basic idea is simple: Two dumped guys try to win their girl-friends back, and their brilliant strategy is to hang around in the local shopping mall.What makes the movie work is the wonderful mix of slap stick humor, intelligent puns and gross sexual innuendos. The actors are excellent in their roles, and I was surprised to see Ben Affleck and Claire Forlani, two coming actors, credited for supporting roles.For a comic fan this movie is a awfully funny experience. But I can <more>
imagine that the film looses some of its appeal when you are not familiar with the Marvel and DC comic heroes and the strange passion and science of collecting comic books.And to everybody who has also failed in seeing a sailboat in those dumb 3-D-pictures, this movie provides some comfort...
That's what Kevin Smith said the studio wanted from him when they gave him the green light on the DVD: "They wanted us to make a smart 'Porky's'." In fact, there was so much riding on this follow up to "Clerks" that there was talk of a sequel, "Mallrats 2: Die Hard In A Mall". Alas, the film didn't do well in theaters and a Mallrats 2 never materialized then again, the sequel to Clerks hasn't come about yet either . Film eventually found its audience on video, and provided Ben Affleck with an early film credit before he hit it big and <more>
started a good working relationship with Kevin Smith that has lasted to this day.Jason Lee also became a Smith regular after this film and made appearances in "Chasing Amy", "Dogma" and "Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back". Jason plays Brodie, a fan boy of grandiose proportions and buddy of Jeremy London's TS. TS is dumped by his girlfriend Brandi Claire Forlani for being obsessive and unreasonable in light of her doing her father's 70s throw back love show pilot to get him out of trouble for accidentally sending the original girl to her death via drowning. Brodie is dumped by his girlfriend Rene Shannen Doherty for being a loser who only plays video games, reads comic books, never takes her shopping where she wants to go and refuses to introduce her to his mother. Brodie deals with this the only way he knows how - going to the mall, which is where he spends most of his time anyway and he drags TS along with him to share in their mutual misery. There they hatch up a plan to wreck the love show so that TS can reconcile with Brandi, whom he truly loves and in fact wanted to ask her to marry him on a trip to Universal Florida that they had planned but was dashed because of the show Brandi's dad does not like TS . Brodie also succumbs to the temptation of winning back his true love Rene, especially when he finds out that she's seeing local mall worker Ben Affleck, who has a knack for picking up women who are "on the rebound" from bad relationships and subjects them to his bizarre sexual fetishes "screw them in an uncomfortable place" . Did I mention that Ben hates Brodie for having "no shopping agenda" every weekend that he comes to the mall? And to think he later played the comic book super hero Daredevil... Also along for the ride is Jay & Silent Bob in this wild and raucous romp of teen madness, so vastly superior to "Clerks" it should be a crime.Joey Lauren Adams, who plays one of TS's ex-girlfriends here, later had the title role in "Chasing Amy". Comics legend Stan Lee plays himself.
Mallrats in fact was a studio film but it's still funny as hell. Kevin Smith has always been a genius and in this movie he contiues his genius in this very funny film. Look for the first movie with the hialrous Jason Lee as scene stealer Brodie Bruce.
Honestly liked it better than Clerks (by AustinLayne)
People may kill me for saying this, but I honestly liked Kevin Smith's second film better than Clerks. I liked Clerks, but I thought the jokes in Mallrats, even the sex jokes, were more clever than the ones in Clerks. One example is the opening narration that serves as a prologue to the film in which Jason Lee's character asks why his cousin keeps buying kittens which keep getting "stuck up his ass", to which the cousin replies "how else am I supposed to get the gerbil out?" I also liked the style of the film more than Clerks. Yes, much of the film is static like <more>
Clerks, and even the Steadicam shots are very steady, but there's still a lot of cool things going on here with Kevin Smith's directing.Of course the review wouldn't be complete without mentioning the great, hilarious performances by Jeremy London, Jason Lee, a young Ben Affleck, Ethan Suplee, and of course Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith as Jay and Silent Bob, who I actually found to be at their most likable in Mallrats I especially liked the bits detailing their plans to thwart the evil mall cop La Fours and how they execute them .The only criticism of the film I have is that the romantic element of the film gets a bit too cheesy for me at times, but the movie isn't supposed to be like Chasing Amy where romantic realism is put face first, it's supposed to be a fast paced comedy, so of course not as much effort went into the romance as the rest of the film. But this doesn't really depreciate the value of the movie, just sort of weighs it down.Regardless, I believe that if people can loosen their hold and focus on realism for an hour and a half that Mallrats is a very enjoyable film and definitely worth a watch.
See I loved this movie from beginning to end, BUT after saying that I must also note that this was the very first Kevin Smith movie I saw and is my favorite. Too start things off I'd like to say this movie's plot well isn't that original it focus's on: these dudes have girl friend,and dudes lose girl friends, dudes try to get girls back. But for any one reading this that hasn't seen a Kevin Smith movie you, you don't really go to Kevin Smith movies for plot. You go because of characters and dialog. For example: Jay and Silent Bob, two stoner's that aren't even <more>
major characters in the film but just from there parts in the movie you learn to love these characters. Brodie, one of the 2 main characters, just the way he's presented and the witty dialog. It's just you cant not like these characters and what the characters talk about or to each other.This was Kevin Smith's 2nd film Clerks was his first . The sad thing about Mallrats was that it did not do good at box office and did not get the best reviews way back in '95, but now it is considered to be a movie before it's time. Because it has received such a cult following and got way more attention then it ever did when it hit VHS and DVD. So go see this movie. If you like it check out more Kevin Smith movies like Clerks, Dogma, Chasing Amy, and Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back. These are all such great films........... oh I almost forgot about Jersey Girl........ well no ones perfect. SRS
Mallrats tells the story of two friends who are dumped by their girlfriends on the same day. They seek solace at the local mall where they hang out all day doing nothing but talk about their girlfriends and comic books. They get into a series of situations that eventually leads to the two enlisting the help of slackers Jay and Silent Bob to get their girlfriends back. This is the second film in the "New Jersey" series by Kevin Smith. This entry is miles better than its predecessor Clerks.I loved how Kevin Smith did this movie. Kevin Smith is a comic book geek, so I'm glad he <more>
made a movie to portray that taste. Comic book lovers will truly enjoy all the references and parodies within the film. I know I did. That's what made the movie even more enjoyable to me. The appearance of Stan Lee was the cherry on the ice cream for me. Aside from that, this movie is just paced and styled better than Clerks was. This was non stop laughs whereas Clerks was more of a satirical black comedy. Also, a lot happened throughout the film even though it only takes place within a day and within the same mall, rather than Clerks which was slow moving and downright boring in some parts.I enjoyed the acting in this movie. Jason Lee is hilarious as comic book fanatic Brodie Bruce. Jay and Silent Bob have a lot more to do in this film than in Clerks, and they make some of the funniest scenes in the movie.Overall, Kevin Smith had his practice with Clerks, so he had the resources to make a better film, and he certainly did. If you liked Clerks, or even if you didn't, you'll love Mallrats.8/10
Wacky Comedy in a Shopping Mall (by Chrysanthepop)
'Mallrats' but is the kind of film you either like or don't like which is pretty much the case with any Kevin Smith movie. I liked it. I enjoyed all the dirty street humour, the awkwardness, the characters and the concept.It's full of slapstick comedies, comic book 'adventure' and some witty and dirty dialogues. Even though many of the situations are unrealistic, it's hilarious.'Mallrats' is about two friends who both lose their girlfriends. The two friends spend the rest of the day in the mall discussing things and what to do about them. In the mall they <more>
meet some friends, enemies, and weirdos. Though the plot isn't what would be referred to as a work of 'genius', it's more the characters and the funny situations that will stick to mind.The only sequence I didn't like was the toilet humour bit, about making the hand stink. That sort of brought down the film a little. The film was already on the right track with its funny characters and funny situations. There was no need for toilet humour.London and Lee play the two friends. London is okay while Lee is very good. He pretty much steals every scene. Doherty and Forlani are adequate. Lauren Adams is brilliant in a brief role and Affleck is good as the evil Salesman. Mewes and Smith are alright though some may feel that they go a little over the top .So all in all, you'll meet some very weird and not-so-weird characters and exaggerated situations but I think you'll at least have some good laughs. It's one of the better comedies from a country that has made dozens of blockbuster garbage like 'American Pie'.
Kevin Smith's most underrated movie (by Bravesfan17)
I don't understand the hate that Mallrats gets. I find it to be funny, original, and another stepping stone in Kevin Smith's career as a writer and director. Jason Lee is in his first leading role as Brodie, a guy who like to hang out in malls. He is not there to work or shop. He is one of the most popular guys there. However, his girlfriend Rene Shannen Doherty is sick of how he lives, so she dumps him. At the same time, Brodie's best friend T.S. is dumped by his girlfriend Brandi Claire Forlani because his mouth caused her trouble. Then through the day of being at the mall, <more>
hanging out with Jay and Silent Bob, and meeting an unusual psychic, Brodie and T.S. find meaning in their lives.Kevin Smith shows us what makes his movies funny and let us know how his movies work. This isn't up there with Smith's other works like Clerks and Chasing Amy, but it is still a solid effort on his part.
