A touching drama and a hilarious comedy

"All every woman really wants, be it mother, senator, nun, is some serious deep-dickin'."

Though it contains the standard witty dialogue and laughs aplenty that we've come to expect from the man behind Clerks. and Mallrats, 1997's Chasing Amy is a different kind of Kevin Smith film. The writer-director baulked from recycling his Clerks. formula yet again, instead concentrating his e... read more

What a miserable film. The only thing I can remember from it is how infuriatingly grating Joey Lauren Adams's voice is. It realy wears you down until it starts burrowing at your very soul. The cast has so many dislikable people in it too. I'm trying to think of salvaging moments but there really are none. It makes no sense to me why this film is rated so highly.

A good movie

To be honest, it has been while since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Still, I remember it very well when I first saw it. Indeed, I think it was after ‘Dogma’ was released, I noticed that Kevin Smith had directed a movie before but I completely missed when it was released in France. Eventually, I was so eager to watch the damned thing that I even order... read more

Holden McNeil and Banky Edwards are best friends and authors of a popular comic book called "Bluntman and Chronic" (based on Jay and Silent Bob). Holden falls in love with Alyssa, also a comic book artist, who happens to be a lesbian. Holden's new relationship with Alyssa strains his life-long friendship with Banky, and soon the relationship between Holden and Alyssa hits a wall due to Holden not being able to deal with her past.

My Top 10 Other Favourite Comedies (10 movies items)

"If there's anyone who could make a romantic comedy that actually appeals to me, it's Kevin Smith! In his hands, sexual humour, which I usually find insufferable, actually is laugh-out-loud funny. But what really gets me about this movie is how well the romantic side of it works. You can understand Holden's mindset, willing for his relationship to work out – at least until the end, when even the movie knows he makes the wrong decision. The whole thing comes off as deeply personal, as demonstrat"

Movie Reviews (701-750) (50 movies items)

" A romantic comedy where even one of the sexiest males alive, Ben Affleck, doesn't stand a chance to have girl since she is gay.This makes it one of the better romantic comedies out there and it has great comic book and film references for the geek in us, but I always find the Silent Bob and Jason routine annoying in all the films I have seen from Kevin Smith and while they are more bearable here I still think the film would have been better without them.
