After the success of Clerks, Kevin Smith stays on slacker territory for this salty comedy following a day in the lives of two college-age wasters. Having been dumped by their girlfriends (Shannen Doherty and Claire Forlani), Brodie (the debuting Jason Lee) and his buddy TJ (Jeremy London) console themselves with a spot of trash-talking R&R down at the local mall. Babes, comic books, videogames - matters of no importance are thoroughly analysed as the guys work out their next move. And naturally, if there's any loitering to be done, Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewes and Smith himself) will be there with bells on.
