** In ''Clerks'', Randall tells the story of how his cousin Walter died attempting to...satisfy himself. The opening lines of this movie have Brodie telling a similar story of a bizarre act by ''his'' cousin Walter, implying that they may be the same cousin and that Brodie and Randall are related.

* UncannyFamilyResemblance: The guy going against Brodie and TS in the game show is Gil Hicks, played by Brian O'Halloran. This is the same actor who starred in ''{{Clerks}}'', and the two characters share a last name. WordOfGod is they're cousins, along with two other characters played by O'Halloran in the View Askewniverse sharing the same last name.

* RepeatedCueTardyResponse: The climax featured Brodie setting up to expose the antagonist's previous crime (indecency with a minor) to be as public as possible, but it backfires in this fashion when the tape gets dropped. Cue protagonist yelling, "NOW!" several times while being hauled away before events turn and the tape plays, resetting Brodie's plan.

Though it is now considered just as much a cult classic as ''Clerks'', at its time of theatrical release it significantly underperformed the earlier film on a '''much''' higher budget (grossing less than $2.5 million of its $6 million budget) and helped come close to bankrupting distributor Gramercy Pictures (though Creator/MichaelMoore's ''Film/CanadianBacon'' [[BoxOfficeBomb did even worse, recouping less than $179,000 of its own $11 million budget]]).

20 years after the film was released, a sequel was [[http://www.slashfilm.com/kevin-smith-mallrats-2-2015/ unexpectedly announced]] by Smith, titled ''Mallbrats''; they're doing this before ''Clerks III'' as a tribute to late Universal producer Jim Jacks, who supported Kevin, the movie and a potential sequel even after the movie flopped; almost all of the cast (with the exception of Ben Affleck) has been confirmed to return. Filming's scheduled to begin at the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exton_Square_Mall Exton Square Mall]] in the Philadelphia suburbs in 2016; according to [[http://www.denofgeek.us/movies/mallrats-2/249676/mallrats-2-kevin-smith-drops-new-details this article,]] it'll basically be the old "Die Hard in a mall" idea Smith had tossed around, but with a "Save the Clock Tower" element, specifically having Brodie try to save the mall by organizing a Comic-Con, only to have terrorists invade. Ralph Garman (the host of ''Series/TheJoeSchmoShow'' and one of Smith's more recent media partners) will portray the terrorist leader, and Creator/BruceCampbell has been cast in an unknown role. [[http://consequenceofsound.net/2016/06/kevin-smith-confirms-mallrats-2-will-be-a-10-episode-series/ More recently]], Smith revealed that, due to being bogged down with legal issues between him and Universal, the sequel will be reconfigured into a 10-episode TV series instead.

T.S. and Brodie are comic-book loving slackers who have both recently broken up with their respective girlfriends. Seeking solace at the local mall, they find ways to sabotage their exes' plans and to try and woo them back. Like all Smith films, this film takes quite a bit of VulgarHumor. It was filmed in Eden Prairie Center in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, which at the time was a tired and dying mall with low traffic. (It has since been extensively renovated.)
