I give Chasing Amy a perfect rating in spite of the fact that I can't stand Ben Affleck in this movie. I can't stand his stupid "dance" moves. I can't stand his dumbass goatee. And I can't stand his stupid pompadour hair. His character of Holden is dumb and self centered, who thinks the world revolves around his d*ck. So how does it still manage a 5 star rating? There are a lot of factors that add up to it. First off, coming off of Mallrats, this movie was the complete opposite. Kevin Smith wrote an intelligent script that had weight and balls (or lack thereof pertaining to lesbians). while still retaining your d*ck and fart jokes. There are plenty of scenes with witty dialogue that harkens more along the lines of Clerks and not some watered down Hollywood flick like Mallrats geared toward 16 year old's. Bonus points for setting the movie in the world of Comic Books.

Once again, Jason Lee as Banky steals the show here and Joey Lauren Adams as Alyssa Jones does a great job. Her breakdown scene was full of intense emotion and I was hoping that she would really punch Ben in the face during the scene. Didn't happen. Pfftt! Also, reducing Jay and Silent Bob down to a cameo was the best thing Kevin could do if having them in the movie was a must.

This is a definite Buy. Highly recommended.

Is this the first time you've watched this?

I haven't seen it since it came out and remember some things. One, it was a pretty good script.

Naw man. More like 20th time. I own all of Kevin Smith's movies. Well, all of them with the exception of Cop Out.

Chasing Amy Outtakes

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNKFBJHrzjk

Usually when they tack on outtakes, they aren't all that funny. But this one definitely is. Watching Jason Lee trying to not laugh makes me laugh uncontrollably to the point of tears. Ben Affleck trying to utter the words "hogwash" is pretty damn funny as well.
