Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Creator Backlash: Kevin Smith famously made a mock apology for how awful this film was on the official movie website just to screw with all the fans who hated it.
  • Executive Meddling: Every time you hear a synonym for "penis" that isn't explicit or a word meaning "fuck" that isn't "fuck", you have witnessed the meddling hand of Universal Pictures.
    • Kevin Smith later thanked the Executives, because his original opening to the film was almost 20 minutes longer. They wisely noted that you can't have a movie called Mallrats and then take a half-hour to get to the mall.
