Miles away from his usual low level comedy, in Chasing Amy, Kevin Smith manages to deliver a great rom-com with some serious undertones.There are the standard Smith jokes throughout the film, but this time they take a backseat to the touching tale of Holden and Alyssa. I don't know quite how he did it, but Chasing Amy feels real and unpredictable. It's not some glossy Hugh Grant/Julia Roberts production, instead it's filled with characters that feel more like real people, which is a nice relief.The film manages to be both moving and funny, and the cast do their best work to date (Affleck and Adams at the hockey game must rank as one of my favourite scenes of all time). This may not be Smith's best known film, but it's definitely his best. Love stories are difficult to do well.
So is comedy. Kevin Smith does both. Very very well.Chasing Amy is, in my opinion Kevin Smith's best movie (Clerks 2nd, Dogma 3rd) and I really don't know where to start the praise.Traditionally, Hollywood romantic comedies are. Really lame PG-13 comedy, with some catch phrase repeated ad nauseum, and always some sort of 'hilarious' incident involving a baby or a cute dog. And the characters are just as annoying as the lame jokes, so ultimately, you don't really care about whether or not they get together in the end.Chasing Amy is different. These characters are lifelike.This isn't a romantic comedy for teenage girls. It's a movie for adults.
Almost everyone can relate to being a situation where they've loved someone so much, but due to certain circumstances, you just weren't able to have that person. And I guess that's what Amy's all about. Unrequited love. Well, Unrequited love and sexual identity, but that's another topic for another day.The real genius of this film is that for all it's serious themes, it manages to convey it's message without being at all pretentious.
Most independent films have this sort of, arrogant pretentious 'I'm so artistic' feel about them.And I hate that. Smith's success lies in the fact that his movies are meaningful, and they're actually funny as well. And Chasing Amy is no exception.In short, you'll be hard pressed to find a more entertaining, and realistic love story than Chasing Amy. It's combination of hilarious dialogue, interesting characters, and realistic themes makes it a winner. 'Chasing Amy' is a clever and engaging urban love story that just exudes with Kevin Smith's gritty humour. The film's examination of sexuality, and everything involved with it, doesn't for one second sound untrue, even when it makes sure that everything being pointed out is expressed frankly and colourfully.
It's not everyday we get a story of a heterosexual man falling in love with a homosexual woman, and although the concept could easily have resulted in a disaster of a movie, 'Chasing Amy' manages to layer everything almost flawlessly. There are no predictable pitfalls in this film, and nothing is wrapped up in a neat little package.
We are offered a group of characters that are likable but flawed, who don't always get, or give, what we would usually expect. I have to say, I never knew what was going to happen next, it manages to be consistenly offbeat without being unrealistic. Ben Affleck and Joey Lauren Adams have incredible chemistry together, perfectly displaying all the emotional complications a relationship as eccentric as theirs would have. Jason Lee was also outstanding in his role of the vaguely jealous best friend.
The only thing that bothered me about this film was there was too much YELLING!! And it was slightly uneven at times.
But generally I liked it a lot, and I'm just thankful that Kevin Smith is producing such fine work like this, it is truly a refreshing escape from Hollywood's formulaic sap. My all-time favourite film! Kevin Smith creates such truly endearing, eccentric, quirky characters, and then manages to cast actors who seem destined to play their roles.
Joey Lauren Adams steals the show (we need to see more of this brilliant gem!), and the Jason Lee / Ben Affleck dynamic is really powerful - all of the actors appear so natural and comfortable, and Jason Mewes is a gift from God (and that's coming from an athiest!). A beautifully written conversational comedy that very gently uncovers the hypocrisy surrounding gender relationships. This film goes way beyond the 'acceptance of sexual preference' cliche, and instead concentrates on the insecurities that all human beings are born with - gay or straight! Mr Smith, you are truly a genius!!! 'Chasing Amy' has to be the best love story of 1997. It was emotional, gripping, funny, sad, heartwarming, and had some great jokes. How could anyone deny that this screenplay was anything less than original, or perfection.
Absolutely intoxicating. The performances were right on and the writing was magnificent. Kevin Smith is, without a doubt, one of the best new writers. With this movie he goes to a whole new level.
'Clerks' was great, and I think I'm one of the five people that enjoyed 'Mallrats', but 'Chasing Amy' takes the cake. Nothing else came even close that year. That movie should have made a star out of Joey Lauren Adams. She gave the BEST performance in 1997 and was robbed of an Oscar nomination, as was the script. The scene outside of the ice rink is more than enough to show just how good she was.

And anyone who can watch that ending, the you don't know if you should cry or jump for joy ending, and not feel something, is heartless. The movie was great. It is one of my personal favorites, and will always be.
Kevin Smith is intent on making “Clerks 3,” and on Tuesday, he announced in an Instagram post that “I assure you, we’re open,” revealing that he’s writing a new screenplay for the film and will reunite with the film’s original stars, Brian O’Halloran and Jeff Anderson.Smith had previously tried to make “Clerks 3” a few years ago, but couldn’t get the project together, which was compounded by Anderson’s unwillingness to return. However, in the, Smith said that he patched things up with Anderson and that he’s just begun writing a new take on the story.“It’ll be a movie that concludes a saga. It’ll be a movie about how you’re never too old to completely change your life. It’ll be a movie about how a decades-spanning friendship finally confronts the future. It’ll be a movie that brings us back to the beginning – a return to the cradle of civilization in the great state of #newjersey,” Smith wrote. “This won’t be the old script we almost made a few years back: this is a completely new screenplay that I just started writing last night!
And so far, it’s like a dream come true!”Also Read:Smith also said that “Clerks 3” will also feature Jason Mewes and himself reprising their supporting roles as Jay and Silent Bob. After struggling to bring “Clerks 3” to fruition, Smith instead pivoted to “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot,” which plays in theaters on Oct.
'Clerks' (1994)Whatever your thoughts on Smith's more recent output, we'll always have 'Clerks.' Most of the now-signature elements introduced in his indie debut - the casual, rapid-fire banter and the endearing slackers delivering it - haven't been bested. Smith maxed out credit cards and filmed at night in the convenience store where he himself worked in order to make 'Clerks,' and became a standard-bearer of independent film in the process. Not bad for a guy who wasn't even supposed to be here.Previous Slide Next Slide.
