Movie synopsis
When handsome young comic book creator Holden McNeil (Ben Affleck) meets cute young comic book creator Alyssa Jones (Joey Lauren Adams), romance seems preordained. But Holden is soon confronted with Alyssa's complex sexual history, as well as his friend and colleague Banky's (Jason Lee) conflicted and enraged response to the affair. Despite the seriousness of the issues, director Kevin Smith keeps the laughs coming, even as Holden goes through hell and grows up.

Editorial reviews

"...This is Smith's most provocative outing yet and certainly the toughest to forget..."
USA Today - Mike Clark (04/11/1997)

"...The film's great strength is its screenplay, which approaches its actors with moving emotional honesty..."
Film Comment - Gavin Smith (03/01/1997)

"...Still showing his touch for garrulous, hair-splitting conversation, Mr. Smith engages his characters in a bright spirited demonstration of just how difficult modern love can be..."
New York Times - Janet Maslin (04/04/1997)

"...A little movie with big truths, a work of such fierce intelligence and emotional honesty that it blows away the competition when it comes to contemporary romantic comedy..."
Los Angeles Times - Kevin Thomas (04/11/1997)

"...A touching, funny love story..."
Total Film - James White (09/01/2000)

"...A riotous, ferociously smart love story....Adams has four dimensions and a mouth big enough to prove it..."
Movieline's Hollywood Life - Michael Atkinson (12/01/1998)

Chasing Amy is Delightfully Dark, Twisted & Fun

Review For: Chasing Amy (DVD, 2000, Criterion Collection)

Chasing Amy
The Criterion Collection presents another classic dark comedy: Chasing Amy. If you’ve never seen this – do yourself a favor and pay tribute to the great Kevin Smith. Like all Kevin Smith movies – Chasing Amy combines unique production with witty and sarcastic humor and dialogue and a cast of not-quite-A-list-actors-who-ge​t-the-job-done (does that make sense?!).

In fact, the best compliment I can pay to Chasing Amy is this: Ben Affleck has a major role in the film… and I still like it!! I really despise Mr. Ben Affleck, but somehow he is rather good in this movie.

From the DVD box: Chasing Amy is the third installment in the “New Jersey Trilogy” from Award-Winning writer/director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma). Cult comic-book artist Holden (Ben Affleck) falls in love with fellow artist Alyssa (Joey Lauren Adams), only to be thwarted by her sexuality, the disdain of his best friend Banky (Jason Lee), and his misgivings about himself. Filled with Smith’s unique ear for dialogue and insight into relationships, Chasing Amy offers a thoughtful, funny look at how perceptions alter lives, and how obsession and self-doubt skew reality.

Chasing Amy Review

Review For: Chasing Amy (DVD, 2000, Criterion Collection)

Chasing Amy without a doubt is Kevin Smith's best work yet. The reason I bought the item is because it's a beautiful film. It somehow has the feeling of "Y Tu Mama Tambien" which is one of the greatest foreign movie ever made. It came with the original insert booklet which has "The Legend of the Askewniverse", it explains how "Mallrats","Cle​rks", and "Chasing Amy" connect. The DVD is excellent, specially cause its part of the Criterion Collection. I mean that its part of one of the most important collection of DVDs, it is part of great classic movies. It comes with deleted scenes, audio commentary, and intros with Kevin Smith. This is a great item to buy.

Just hittin' home

Review For: Chasing Amy (DVD, 2000, Criterion Collection)

I really thought it was a strong movie. I like finding stuff that flies under the radar, but is still a satisfying little gem. No real review stuff here, only because I've been in a similar situation (where the woman I was sleeping with and falling in love with had been f*** buddies with just too many other people) and I can relate to the confused atmosphere that these people find themselves in. I thought the scene at the club where Adams is singing (good song written by Adams by the way) and Afleck thinks it's for him, is the stongest comic moment. Very funny! I'll tell you one thing though - I fell half in love with Joey Lauren Adams. What a beautiful girl! Ben Affleck has made it but I don't know why she isn't a bigger star. I think this is easily the best movie Kevin Smith ever made. I thought Mallrats was just junk...but that's my opinion.

Kevin Smith Rocks

Review For: Chasing Amy (DVD, 2000, Criterion Collection)

Kevin Smith, the Director and an actor in "Chasing Amy" is one of my favorite Directors. I pretty much worship the guy. I bought the DVD to help fill in my collection of Kevin's movies. "Chasing Amy" is one of his finest. I love all the actors--and as a director, Kevin seems to be able to get performances out of actors like Ben Affleck that other directors just don't always seem to be able to do. Kevin never gives himself enough credit, but I think anyone who hasn't seen this movie is seriously depriving themselves of the chance to see a fine comedy with some excellent acting, wonderful writing (also by Kevin Smith)and a movie that will make you laugh and cry. Don't walk, run to the nearest video outlet and rent it, if you haven't already seen it. You're in for a real treat.

Great movie

Review For: Chasing Amy (DVD, 2000, Criterion Collection)

Just another great Kevin Smith film!Love, romance/comedy that throws curve balls at you non stop. Afflect, Lee, Jay and Silent Bob, and many others in this movie are great.All out of the new jersey area. Nice movie that i believe people should watch. Comic lovers will appreciate how ben and jason portriat themselves as comic writers in this film. Very interesting movie from beginning to end
