Starring: Ben Affleck, Joey Lauren Adams, Jason Lee, Dwight Ewell, and Jason Mewes.
Director: Kevin Smith.
MPAA Rating : R (Guess: Strong language, frank discussions about sex and sexuality, scenes of homosexual kissing).
Plot: Chasing Amy revolves around Holden McNeil (Affleck) and his friend, Banky (Lee) and their struggles to meet their deadline for their comic book Bluntman and Chronic. Along the way, the pair meets Alyssa Jones (Adams) and Holden falls in love with her, not realizing she’s a lesbian. Holden then sets out to win her love, despite the sexuality barrier. This has disastrous consequences, both for them personally and their relationship.
Notes: Easily the most cerebral of Kevin Smith’s films, Chasing Amy embodies what good film making is. Believable characters drive this story, and while the pop culture references are there, they take a back seat to character development and story.
My Rating: The best of the View Askew films. A must see. Five Goons out of Five.
