In the mid-90s, the notorious Kevin Smith wrote and directed a comedy that quickly became a cult classic. This raunchy and somewhat absurd film is called Mallrats, and tells the story of two best friends who desperately want their girlfriends back. The film follows T.S. Quint (Jeremy London), who has just been dumped by his girlfriend Brandi Svenning (Claire Forlani) due to his lack of ambition. His best friend and roommate Brodie Bruce (Jason Lee) is also going through a breakup with his girlfriend Rene Mosier (Shannen Doherty). They both decide to go to the mall to try and win their girlfriends back.

Once at the mall, the duo encounter several characters including Jay and Silent Bob (played by Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith himself) who are selling drugs and causing trouble, and William Black (Ethan Suplee), a young man who is pursuing a relationship with a girl by asking her ridiculous questions about superheroes.

Throughout the film, T.S. and Brodie encounter a series of ridiculous and hilarious situations as they try to win back their girlfriends. Along the way, they uncover a plot to sabotage Brandi's father's game show by her ex-boyfriend, which leads to further chaos and a race against time to save the show.

One of the most iconic scenes in the film involves Brodie and T.S. attempting to win back their girlfriends by participating in a game show called "Truth or Date" in front of a live audience. The cringe-worthy moments that follow are sure to leave viewers laughing and shaking their heads in disbelief.
