February 7, 2014
With their matching hipster goatees and deadpan cynicism, Affleck and Lee evince the easy rapport of old buds.
February 7, 2014
There is a lot of frank conversation about the technical aspects of sex between women, but Holden and Banky are written more like sniggering eighth graders than inquisitive adults.
February 7, 2014
As in Smith's debut film, Clerks, there's something about the scruffy Chasing Amy that breaks through the pretenses of more conventional movies.
February 7, 2014
Even when its young, uncertain characters appear to be in danger of talking (and whining) themselves to death, there's something genuine and charmingly naive about their attempts to make sense of their feelings.
February 7, 2014
Chasing Amy is not yet a mature work Smith still needs a style to go with his sensibility but its yearning for maturity is palpable and touching.
February 7, 2014
The performances are universally strong. The goateed Affleck makes for a particularly sympathetic protagonist; he has the looks and confidence of a lady-killer, but nagging befuddlement and vulnerability are rarely far from the surface.
November 5, 2018
A reductive juncture in Smith's career compared to his more situationally-specific and fine-tuned predecessors, Clerks and Mallrats.
February 7, 2014
Slowly, like a latent teen pulled against his will into adulthood, Kevin Smith is growing up. But he's not growing quietly.
February 7, 2014
Chasing Amy represents a change in direction for Smith, with drama before gags. A chick flick for blokes.
February 7, 2014
The movie reinforces his gift for dialogue, but his ability to handle actors, compose scenes or keep track of his own story is negligible.
February 7, 2014
Chasing Amy often is convulsively funny.
February 7, 2014
[A] cool, hilarious and sexy romantic comedy.
February 7, 2014
Although [Smith's] dialogue is often witty, he still relies on blunt sexual humor to get his point across.
February 7, 2014
Affleck and Lee have a great comic thing going on.
January 1, 2011
Dated romantic comedy wrong for all kids.
November 4, 2010
The third installment of Kevin Smith's New Jersey Trilogy is also the only Kevin Smith movie that's worth any serious attention.
November 21, 2009
Like a raw nerve tweaked over and over again by emotions both radiant and revealing, Chasing Amy is as close to a masterpiece as Smith has ever created.
November 16, 2009
Smith's best film, in a disappointing audio-visual package with some great extras.
November 16, 2009
Chasing Amy suggests that Smith could do so much better if only he would push himself.
November 15, 2009
Smith's most mature film. Yes, it's filled with crude dialogue, blunt descriptions of sex and an overkill of Star Wars references, but it uses these to dig deeper and make its subject matter more accessible.
