Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
A pair of comic book authors named Holden McNeil and Banky Edwards, who live in New Jersey, have been best friends for 20 years. They spend their time working in their studio, and in the evenings they are going out. But their friendship is about to be disputed for the first time in their life, when a beautiful young lesbian woman named Alyssa Jones enters their life and Holden falls in love with her. Now Holden has to deal with Banky's jealousy, and with his new girlfriend's very rich past. Written by
The scene with Holden and Alyssa is shot on a two-way street from inside the car, but a one way street when they get out of the car. Also, they are going the wrong way on that street (just before they get back into the car a street sign is visible over the roof of the car). See more »

I don't know. I love Chow Yun Fat. I just don't see him playing Madman.

Chasing Amy is again a look into some strange people's lives. This movie strays a bit from the style of Kevin Smith's first two movies, in that the story seems to play a more important role in the movie. In the past the story was almost irrelevant to the hilariously entertaining dialogue. Not that this dialogue is not strange and entertaining as well, but the story does seem to dominate more. Although I enjoyed Clerks the most, I enjoyed this movie as well. Don't you love how Brian O'Halloran from Clerks (Dante) keeps popping up in all of Kevin Smith's movies!?
