Clever movie for the open minded.

"It's not who you love, it's how" is a great tagline for the movie.

Affleck's character cannot deal with Lauren's character's past and that's the main reason why they can't maintain a serious relationship.

Silent Bob in a very important scene talks about "Chasing Amy" and that's when everything makes more sense.

I'm not a big Kevin Smith fan but I have to admit that I liked this movie very much. There are some personal conflicts that not many movie-makers talk about; in this case, it's your partner's love past. Smith brings his own experience to the movie and it's told in an interesting manner.

SCRIPT "Chasing Amy" has a clever fast-paced script filled with funny lines and intelligent discussions related to love relationships. The cast is surprisingly good. Creative script that works as a comedy, a drama, or a romantic comedy with Smith's personal touch.

CAST Ben Affleck gives a totally believable performance as the lead male character; Joey Lauren Adams was simply great in her role, and what can I say about Jason Lee? He stole the show whenever he was on screen.

Supporting characters like Jay and Silent Bob were a good addition and the movie asked for them.

FUN FACTOR It's very high. The subplots are entertaining and the climatic scene involving the three main characters has great dialog.

7/10. Surprisingly good. Recommended for open minded people.

what a piece of work is man and woman

At this point, Kevin Smith had only directed "Clerks." and "Mallrats", but "Chasing Amy" really showed his talent. It portrays a young man (Ben Affleck) falling for a woman (Joey Lauren Adams),only to find out that she's a lesbian. I think that my two favorite scenes are the racism speech about "Star Wars", and the joke about who gets to the dollar bill first.

True, this is the sort of movie that could only really appeal to people below thirty, but Kevin Smith always knows how to put a neat spin on everything. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon of course co-starred in "Good Will Hunting" later that year, and Kevin Smith continues casting them in his movies. All in all, this is something that you're sure to like.

Hilarious Kevin Smith writing

Holden McNeil (Ben Affleck) and Banky Edwards (Jason Lee) are New Jersey lifelong best friends who co-author their comic 'Bluntman and Chronic'. Banky is a short-tempered inappropriate loudmouth. Holden meets and falls for Alyssa Jones (Joey Lauren Adams) at the Manhattan Comic-com. She writes her book 'Idiosyncratic Routine'. Then they find out that she's a lesbian. Holden becomes good friends with Alyssa. They even start dating. She gets ostracized. Banky finds out that Alyssa's high school nickname is 'Finger Cuffs' from a threesome which causes him to question their whole relationship.

Kevin Smith pens hilarious, sharp, inappropriate, explicit dialog. So much of it just had me gut laughing. Banky is such a lovable Neanderthal. The exchangers between Hooper X and Banky about Archie are insanely funny. Holden and Alyssa's relationship is doing a different version of 'When Harry Met Sally'. Only he's digging at some more dangerous grounds. There are some who complained about the 'conversion' of a gay person. It's actually more about Holden's hang ups. I'd argue that he's the more juvenile. The camera work is still amateurish but Smith is going all out with his writing.
