    Synopsis


    Chasing Amy
    After a pair of films about hipster slackers, the work of writer-director Kevin Smith matured and gained critical respect with this low budget, independent comedy-drama about love, sex and the fine line between the two. Ben Affleck stars as Holden McNeil, a New Jersey comic book writer who is roommates with his best friend and professional partner, artist Banky Edwards (Jason Lee). Their hit comic book series, "Bluntman and Chronic," is loosely patterned after a pair of acquaintances, Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (played by Smith), two characters already familiar as supporting players in several Smith films. Into Holden's life comes Alyssa Jones (Joey Lauren Adams), a lesbian and fellow comic book creator who quickly becomes a close friend, although Holden is powerfully attracted to her. Eventually, Alyssa realizes that she is attracted to Holden as well and they begin a physical relationship, much to the consternation of Banky, whose ire over losing his best friend to a lesbian seems to border on romantic jealousy. After he learns something about Alyssa's sexual past, however, Holden's immature response to his new knowledge destroys both his romance with Alyssa and his friendship with Banky. Chasing Amy (1997) was the third film in what Smith referred to as his "New Jersey series," films set at least partly in the Garden State and featuring the Jay and Silent Bob characters. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      Doesn't need to be on BluRay, but happy it is

      This is one of those films that BRD does nothing to really enhance it. It's just one of "those" movies. But what I appreciate about it is the subtle nuances of the background noise brought to life by the BluRay edition. Things like the sound of the rain during Holden's confession, the clinks & clanks of the dishes & background of the cafe, the chatter among the fans of the ComiCon. Just sorta immerses you into the View Askewniverse.

      This is a really great film, showing that Kevin Smith has the skill to write stuff other than toilet humor. The only downside to it would be the Kevin Smith formula (sub-par filming techniques, recycling frequent collaborators), and the somewhat unfair portrayal of the LGBT culture. It's not a misrepresentation, by any means, merely not as p-c as some people would like. Regardless, it is a very funny and pretty heartfelt film.

      This is one of Kevin Smith's greatest movies. Much like Clerks and Mallrats (Both in the "Jersey Trilogy"), this movie will really speak to your heart. While still a comedy, it delves into some alternative lifestyle situations that some people have never even HEARD of. It will make you think, make you laugh, and if you've ever lost a love, it will make you cry!

      Kevin Smith's 3rd film

      Director Kevin Smith takes his New Jersey films to the next level, if only marginally. Making good use of it's cast as it tells a unique story line and cleaver characters with the expected witty dialogue.

      this movie is a bit different. Ben just wants that one girl, but she has a bit of a different past. He don't like it.

      This film is excellent. The DVD includes many deleted scenes with introductions, and they are all good. Highly recommended.
