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

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
The frequently recurring title characters, employed by writer and director Kevin Smith as supporting players in several of his films, are put to rest with this comedy that focuses on them exclusively. Jay (Jason Mews) and Silent Bob (Smith) are a pair of stoned New Jersey slackers who have long been used as the templates for a pair of popular comic book heroes, Bluntman and Chronic. When they learn that their alter egos are to be turned into a major motion picture without their consent or compensation, the pair sets off for Hollywood to sabotage the production. Along the way, they encounter an ape, a nun (Carrie Fisher), the cast of Scooby-Doo, a Charlie's Angels-style band of sexy women who use them as stool pigeons in a diamond heist, and an unhinged wildlife ranger (Will Ferrell). They also meet up with some regulars from the Smith canon, including Alyssa Jones (Joey Lauren Adams), Brian O'Halloran as Dante Hicks, Jason Lee as Banky Edwards, Alanis Morissette as God, and actors Ben Affleck and Matt Damon in dual roles as themselves and two other familiar characters. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back co-stars numerous other recognizable performers in roles of various sizes, including Shannen Doherty, Jason Biggs, James Van Der Beek, Shannon Elizabeth, Tracy Morgan, Judd Nelson, Chris Rock, and George Carlin, among others. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

Clerks
When Dante Hicks (Brian O'Halloran) is reluctantly put in charge of the Quick Stop market on his day off, he tries, though half-heartedly, to perform his minimum-wage duties as efficiently as possible. This gets tough amidst the on-going fight with his girlfriend, Veronica (Marilyn Ghigliotti), and his attempt to get back together with his ex-girlfriend, Caitlyn Bree (Lisa Spoonhauer). Meanwhile, his friend and alter ego Randall (Jeff Anderson) is working behind the counter of the adjacent video store -- at least when he feels like it. Randall's unabashed disdain of his place of employment, a long with his self-admitted hatred towards its customers is a sharp contrast to Dante's feeble attempts at the niceties of customer service. Much of the film consists of Randall and Dante's criticism of their customers, their lives, and the world in general. Clerks, filmed in black-and-white on a budget of only $27,000, began the career of writer director Kevin Smith, who would go on to make Mallrats (1995), Chasing Amy (1997), Dogma (1999), and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    2 Great Indie Films and 1 Really Fun Hollywood Seq

    None of the information below will spoil the movies for you. You should also check out Dogma and Clerks 2 if you like these 3. They can be a bit vulgar though. -- Clerks--The indie film that launched 1000 indie films. This move was and is truly unique. If you haven't seen it, you should. There is a restaurant where I live that currently has a "We are open" sign in the window. The reminder of this movie made me smile, but I do wish the restaurant didn't have to close. -- Chasing Amy--I haven't seen this one in a while, but I remember it being very entertaining. I have this set of movies, so I need to go back and watch it. -- Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back--This one is just fun, but probably more so for anyone who has seen the other Jay and Silent Bob movies than those who haven't. The good news is that 2 of the other movies are included in this set. I also recommend seeing Dogma and Clerks 2, although Clerks 2 actually followed this movie.

    What else can you really say, I mean Clerks, Chasing Amy, and Jay and Silent Bob strike back? Together in a single pack? The only thing that could have made it better is if Dogma was included as well. Clerks was Kevin Smith's first movie, and still a classic. No matter how many times I watch it, I still laugh. Chasing Amy is great, but I have to say the zany antics of Jay and Silent Bob strike back along with the long list of superstar cameos really takes the cake in this pack. Three must watch movies for any fan of comedy.

    This is a perfectly reasonable set for those who do not already own any of these movies. The only knock on the set is that all the extras from Jay and Silent Bob are not carried over, so hold on to your DVD if you are upgrading to blu-ray.

    Three great Flicks on blu-ray. Tons of extras. All for under $20 (I actually got mine when BB had it for $4.99 - SCORE)! Kevin Smith fans looking to fill out their collection should definately grab this up.
