'Mallrats' Sequel In The Works: I Tolerate The Smell Of Sequels In The Morning

Kevin Smith has decided that, twenty years after the box office failure of Mallrats, he’s going to make a sequel. According to Entertainment Weekly and Smith himself on Rock102 Mornings with Shmony & Carolina:

“Yeah, that’s what we’re working on,” Smith said when asked to respond to rumors of a sequel. “It’s half a script right now, and we’re pulling our loot together. We’ve got up until the beginning of 2016. By the time we get to May 2016, we’re going to be shooting.”

Regardless of whether you think this is good news or terrible news, one cannot deny the effect Mallrats had on me a certain segment of the population. Judging by the near cult-like status the flick gained upon home video release, it wouldn’t have been insane to once consider a follow-up. To celebrate a movie that gave us so much, and a sequel that may or may not ruin it, here are my 7 favorite scenes from Mallrats.

1. The Stinkpalm


3. “I guarantee he blows a load like a shotgun right through her back.”

4. “Ha, ha, ha! You dumb bastard.”

5. “…like the back of a Volkswagen?”

6. Jay Shows Off His Sweet Dance Moves

7. Operation Dark Knight
