Not being a big Ben Affleck fan I saw this movie with trepidation. What I saw was a very entertaining and well acted movie. Jay and Silent Bob steal the movie where Silent Bob actually gives some good words of wisdom. He tells Affleck that he should not dwell upon his girlfriend's relationships with her exes because whether it was better or worse the girlfriend is only interested in Affleck now so the past doesn't matter.

Silent Bob goes on to say that his relationship with "Amy" was ruined by not heading this advice and he didn't realize it till it was too late. Affleck still manages to muddle his relationship and not be able to enjoy his personal success in the comic book world because he still mulls over the blown chance he had with his girlfriend

**** out of ****     Kevin Smith is not a filmmaker. He isn't even a director; yet, he's always been labeled as one. Perhaps this is because he's the one behind the camera, "directing" his crew to fit his vision, and learning from the experience; eventually taking references to one film into another. His signature style is the element of crass humor; which I can admire, as long as it's done right. And if you know Kevin Smith's style, then you'll know that most of the time, he …

About this movie

Wiki

Chasing Amy is a 1997 romantic comedy film written and directed by Kevin Smith. It is the third film in the View Askewniverse series. The film focuses on two comic book artists: Holden McNeil (Ben Affleck), a heterosexual male, and Alyssa Jones (Joey Lauren Adams), a lesbian-identified woman.

The movie contains frank sexual dialogue, and was originally inspired by a brief scene from an early movie by a friend of Smith's, Guin Turner's Go Fish, wherein one of the lesbian characters imagines her friends passing judgment on her for "selling out" by sleeping with a man. In real life, Kevin Smith was dating Joey Lauren Adams at the time he was writing the script, which was also partly inspired by her.

The film won two awards at the 1998 Independent Spirit Awards (Best Screenplay for Smith and Best Supporting Actor for Jason Lee) and Joey Lauren Adams was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy/Musical.

Dave Pirner of Soul Asylum was the Musical Consultant/Producer on this film and wrote music for it.
