Well well Mr Smith. Chasing Amy isn’t as entirely comic as Kevin’s previous movies, but it’s far, far deeper and emotional. It has comic moments and plenty of laughs, but it delivers a sophisticated and intelligent look at relationships, gender and sexual choices.
Jay and Silent Bob are in evidence but far less prevalent, as the more mature material dictates, and while the backdrop is essentially ‘two guys who are life long friends and who’s friendship is strained when one of them gets involved in a love relationship that is complex’, and so almost the same as Clerks, the details of the relationship and the depth of the material is much greater.
Chasing Amy is intelligent, funny, incisive and emotional.
Kevin Smith made me watch another love story (in which a girl kissed a girl), and I liked it.
