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.)

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.

* LipLock: Some scenes had to be re-dubbed to remove the references to the Governor's Ball plot; this occurred in the scene where TS and Brodie meet up with Jay and Bob, and the guy who gets decked in the parking lot by TS when they arrive from the dirt mall also suffers from this. The "[[{{Bowlderize}} edited for TV]]" version also had this.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: Mallrats was shown on network TV (ABC) once and remains the only View Askew movie to do so. Needless to say, much of the raunchy humor was removed, including the explanation of the stink palm (Brodie's dialogue is changed to make it sound like his pretzels are moldy, which is why Mr. Svenning gets sick), plus some terrible ADR to boot. However, to make up for lost time, some of the deleted footage was added back in.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Brodie is pretty selfish when it comes to Renee's needs, but is far more likable than either of the above, and ultimately goes out of his way to prove his love for Renee (with a little help from T.S. and Stan the Man).

* RepeatedCueTardyResponse: The climax featured Brody 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 Brody's plan.
