It's a weaker Smith film, but a weaker film from the stronger Kevin Smith era (the mid to late 90's), so it still has its share of social commentary, sharp jokes, and fun cameos. Not as inventive as Clerks, but way more fun than later films, such as, say, Clerks 2.

Probably the weakest film in the 'ViewAskew'-niverse (as Smith calls it). The humor is more spotty and while it does have it's moments and trademark Smith dialogue, it's just not as enjoyable as his other works. This really is for fans only.

definitely feel that this is one of Kevin Smith's weaker films. I love Smith to death.. but as a second film not so great. It wasn't as good as Clerks was, that's for sure.

"Mallrats" by Yojimbo

Two suburban slackers are both dumped by their girlfriends on the same day, so they decide to hang out at the local mall to cheer themselves up. And that's it. Kevin Smith's second film obviously had a much bigger budget, and to be honest all it did was take away any excuses he had for the severe lack of skill he displays behind the camera. He desperately tries to recapture the easygoing charm of Clerks, but to be honest that film was seriously propped up by the Gen X zeitgeist of the time in which it was made and that being taken away, the whole thing just falls flat on its face. The dialogue is clumsy and unnatural and peppered with Smith's trademark pop culture references, but without any semblance of structure, plot or even ideas to hang them on, it just comes across as an aimless, wi...

Mallrats review

T.S. Quint (Jeremy London) is dumped by Brandi Svenning (Claire Forlani) after a heated argument. Rene Mosier (Shannen Doherty) breaks-up the immature comic and Sega fanatic Brodie Bruce (Jason Lee). Rene goes out with clothing store Manager named Shannon Hamilton (Ben Affleck). Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith) try to aid T.S. and Brodie with their love problems. It had a lot of film references such as the Untouchables line, silent Bob emulating the caped crusader, Superman and Godfather where Brandi’s father talks to T.S. The artists delivered the lines naturally though its difficult to realize if people talk the way they did.

The soundtrack was hip and screenplay was witty but at times to geeky and childish. The deleted scenes, “easter egg” and “look back” on th...

Living in the shadows of Dante And Randal.

Clerks was the first Kevin Smith film I saw, followed by the sequel, Clerks 2. The Clerks series is a favourite among View Askew fans, and I love them myself. Like children. But while watching Mallrats, Brodie and T.S, are like Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back, it's not genius, but I definetly can live with it. We've got two guys who have been dumped for minor reasons to end a relationship, and their only goal that day was to roam the mall like, well, Mallrats. The characters don't seem to be too upset. Either the girls weren't worth the grieving, or this mall they went to must have really kicked ass. Jay And Silent Bob return, Which I'm glad to see, since they made the movie much better than it was before the two reached the pet store.

Not the best Kevin Smith film, but still worth seei...
