Double bill of 'slacker' comedies. In 'Loser' (2000), Jason Biggs and Mena Suvari star as Paul and Dora, two students trying to make ends meet at New York University. Paul is a mild-mannered smalltown guy, at odds with the brash party attitude of his rich flatmates. He meets Dora and falls for her instantly, glad to have found a kindred spirit, but doesn't realise that she is involved in an affair with their literature professor Edward Alcott (Greg Kinnear). In 'Mallrats' (1995), when Brodie (Jason Lee) and T.S. (Jeremy London) are dumped by their girlfriends, they take to hanging around the food court of the local shopping mall. They then hit upon a scheme to win back their lost loves, using two delinquents, Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) and Jay (Jason Mewes).
