Product Description

Comic book writers Holden (Ben Affleck) and Banky (Jason Lee) meet Alyssa Jones (Joey Lauren Adams) at a convention. Holden is smitten with her, and despite the fact that Alyssa has a girlfriend and claims never to have slept with a man, the couple become friends. When Holden tells Alyssa that he loves her, she reciprocates, and they start sleeping together. But his friend Banky becomes jealous and sets out to wreck the relationship.

From Amazon.co.uk

Writer-director Kevin Smith (Clerks) makes a huge leap in sophistication with this strong story about a comic-book artist (Ben Affleck) who falls in love with a lesbian (Joey Lauren Adams) and actually gets his wish that she love him, too. Their relationship is attacked, however, by his business partner (Jason Lee), who pulls a very unsubtle Iago act to cast doubt over the whole affair. The film has the same sense of insiderness as Clerks--this time, Smith takes us within the arcane, funny world of comic-book cultism--but the themes of jealousy, deceit and the high price of growing up enough to truly care for someone make this a very satisfying movie. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Of Kevin Smith's four films - Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma - this is arguably the best, though it should perhaps be pointed out that this isn't a truly great film: I suspect that his masterpiece is yet to come.If Clerks was a little too primitive, Mallrats was too predictable, and Dogma was overwrought, then Chasing Amy sees Kevin Smith playing to his strengths: a warm, funny and most importantly unconventional romantic comedy. The scatalogical humour sits a little uneasily with some of the film's more emotional content, and Joey Lauren Adams tends to overact slightly as Ben Affleck's target of affection; but don't let such minor flaws put you off a film that may well be one of the best romantic comedies since 'Annie Hall'.

Director Kevin Smith does it again! This is another great film by this director-writer who has turned his sights on romantic comedy, scripting an intelligent, funny, and edgy film and deftly directing it.
The plot focuses on Holden Mc McNeil (Ben Affleck), a successful comic book artist who has yet to fall really and truly in love. While at a comic book show with his friend of twenty years and collaborator, Banky Edwards (Jason Lee), with whom he lives, Holden ends up meeting a struggling, spunky, independent, female comic book artist, the gorgeous and sexy Alyssa Jones (Joey Lauren Adams). The only problem is that she claims to like women. This self-styled lesbian and Holden begin a friendship, however, that eventually deepens into something else.
Unfortunately, a strange love triangle of sorts seems to develop among Alyssa, Holden, and Banky, as Banky takes a strong dislike to Alyssa when she and Holden manage to take their relationship to the next level. The seemingly jealous Banky does his best to try to erode the bonds between the two, but it is Holden himself who does the most to erode what he and Alyssa have, with a little inadvertent help from Alyssa. It seems that the concept of unconditional love is one with which Holden has a problem.
This is a gender bender sort of film, with wonderful performances by the entire cast. Ben Affleck is well cast as Holden, giving a winning performance. Jason Lee is terrific as the erstwhile best friend with issues. Joey Lauren Adams lights up the screen every time she is in a scene. She does a terrific job with the role of the conflicted Alyssa. Dwight Ewell is sensational as Hooper LaMont, the ostensibly racist comic book artist, who has his own issues and is quite funny.

Seldom do you see a movie that mixes humour and love in such a way that it both makes you wet yourself laughing and feel a strong connection with the plot.
The plot is pretty straight forward but the quality of the writing is the thing that sets it a part from the rest of the films of its ink.
Affleck and Adams pull off terrific performances as the lovers, Affleck in particular performs the best he ever has in this film. But Jason Lee steals the show once again (much like Jeff Anderson in Clerks) as the jealous best friend. He not only performs with hilarity but with a heart too. He plays the funny man perfectly and much of it is reminiscent of his past performance in 'Rats. A great part casted to perfection, hats off to him. Jay and Silent Bob make a welcome appearance in another memorable scene, but it isnt as comedic as their parts in 'Rats (nor should it be) but they are there and their presence is felt.
The script is incredible, Smith wrote an absolutely amazing declaration of Love acted beautifully by affleck and it really shows his sensitive side.
Overall a film that truely deserves all the praise Clerks had and more. It will make you laugh, cry and think hard about love and sexuality. The best of the New Jersey "trilogy".

I have to confess I preferred Kevin Smith's first film, Clerks, but in Chasing Amy has a great scene where Silent Bob finally breaks his silence and tells Jay to shut up. Smith then delivers a great scene - essentially explaining the title of the film and giving Affleck some advice on his relationship. Ben Affleck is not bad in this film, but then this was in his pre-Gywneth days, Jason Lee is good and Dwight Ewell is excellent as the black, gay, Sci-Fi comic writer - he has he best line in the line: "I'm in a minority of a minority of a minority". That only really leaves JoeyLauren Adams, whose voice tends to grate on the nerves somewhat (think Barbie on Helium). Smith has proved himself more than a one-cult hit wonder, and what's nice in the continual references to previous films (that unfortunate incident in the toilet at the Quickstop in Clerks pops up again) and characters that crossover (such as Jay and Silent Bob - played by Smith himself).
