*** 1/2 (out of 4)
Kevin Smith, Jason Lee, Ben Affleck, Jason Mewes, Michael Rooker and other cast and crew members of MALLRATS are gathered up to discuss why it was such a bomb at the box office and with critics. This twenty-one minute featurette starts off with some archival interviews where we see these same people talking about how people are going to love the movie and then we get to the current interviews where people talk about the disastrous reception the film got.
I really, really enjoyed this featurette because usually when movies flop no one wants to discuss it. That's certainly not the case here because all the main people are here sharing their thoughts and it's great fun hearing from them. It's especially interesting hearing from Smith who discusses the pain of getting that call and learning the film had tanked. We even get to hear from a couple film critics who discuss how bad the film was.
