After the success of Clerks, Kevin Smith returned with Mallrats, spawning a raft of characters and in-jokes that he would carry throughout his unique comedic world known as the View Askewniverse.
To ease the pain of being dumped by their girlfriends, comic book nerd Brodie (Jason Lee) and best friend TS (Jeremy London) take a trip to the local mall. They soon discover the mall is being used as the venue for a dating show, in which Brandi, TS’s ex, is the star. To win her back, the pair enlist the help of professional delinquents Jay and Silent Bob to hijack the show, while Brodie carries out his own mission to mend his relationship with Rene (Shannen Doherty), who has caught the eye of his nemesis Shannon (Ben Affleck).
With a cast of regular Smith collaborators including Joey Lauren Adams and Ben Affleck, Mallrats can now be rediscovered with this director-approved restoration packed with hours of bonus content.
