Retains enough Smith-isms to help navigate all potholes in execution. Flawed, yes, but Mallrats has its charms when it isn't shoving its hand up its own hindquarters.

Typical Kevin Smith fare; not suitable for kids.

Almost everyone has lively things to say, the topics usually centering on the Kevin Smith triumvirate of sex, comics, and movies.

There must be a helluva lot of Mallrats fans out there, and I feel pretty confident in saying that they'll pretty much adore this new DVD edition.

Underrated Kevin Smith. Lots of inside jokes, background gags and smart dialogue.

Of the 2,818 movies I've seen, never have I witnessed a greater comedic performance than that of Jason Lee in Mallrats, and I doubt I ever will.

A surprisingly clever and hilariously bizarre take on the Gen-X teen experience.

This sparky if flawed effort deserves re-evaluation.

A disjointed but infectious series of comic vignettes, toilet humor, practical jokes, sight gags, even a sort of grunge variation on Keystone Kops slapstick.

The movie has a few amusing '70s references and there's a wonderfully weird sequence featuring a topless fortune-teller. Overall, though, moviegoers can find much better deals.
