Chasing Amy is the third installment in the "New Jersey Trilogy" from award-winning writer-director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Mallrats, Dogma). Cult comic-book artist Holden (Ben Affleck) falls in love with fellow artist Alyssa (Joey Lauren Adams), only to be thwarted by her sexuality, the disdain of his best friend Banky (Jason Lee), and his own misgivings about himself. Filled with Smith's unique ear for dialogue and insight into relationships, Chasing Amy offers a thoughtful, funny look at how perceptions alter lives, and how obsession and self-doubt skew reality.

The characters are all really well written, they fill in each other's gaps really well.
The language in the movie, to me, is what makes it so wonderful. I love how Kevin Smith throws down for both high art and real people. To me, Kevin Smith's films are every bit as deep and important and penetrating as David Lynch, they just come from a different angle.
People, too, seem to think that frank sexual language or other blunt forms of dialogue can really cheapen romance or a piece's concept of love, but I dunno, I felt like this was one of the best love stories and overall sexual commentaries I've ever seen.
This movie made me feel a lot more at home, in regards to being a human being. I really liked this movie.
Chasing Amy is a movie that begins with gentle comedy, and slowly twists itself into story of insight and integrity. It rips aside veils of hypocrisy and reveals bizarre and uncomfortable truths that make an honest person tremble. The movie is funny, riveting, and heartbreaking. I completely recommend it.
