Both dumped by their girlfriends, two best friends seek refuge in the local mall.

The slapstick would put Curly and Moe to shame. The raunch is crude as often as it is clever.
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
There are several painfully awkward "dead spots" in Mallrats where nothing works -- not the dialogue, the acting, or the direction.
The New York Times - Elvis Mitchell
Mallrats mixes clever bits and an appealing quirkiness (which goes a long way) with gross-out practical jokes, needless repetition and obvious padding, since it has no real plot. [20 Oct 1995]
Washington Post - Desson Thomson
I'm guessing even die-hard "Clerks" fans will find this only-in-America stuff only partially satisfying, like something they gorged on at the Eatery, then wished they hadn't.
Austin Chronicle - Unnamed
While Smith's testosterone-loaded humor is a taste I have yet to acquire, his choices of a comic book-inspired credit sequence, the guest appearance of Marvel Comics genius Stan Lee, and the film's overall superhero aesthetic perfectly capture the mall mise-en-scene.
