Plot

Holden McNeil and Banky Edwards are comic book artists and lifelong friends. Everything is going good for them until they meet Alyssa Jones at a comic book convention in New York to promote their comic Bluntman and Chronic. Holden is attracted to Alyssa, but shortly finds out that she is a lesbian. The two begin hanging out, and a deep friendship develops. Banky, however, dislikes Alyssa and is bothered by her and Holden's relationship. Eventually Holden is no longer able to contain his romantic leanings, and confesses his love to Alyssa. She initially considers his confession unfair and inconsiderate since she is a lesbian, but that night the two begin a romantic relationship. A fan convention, or con, is an event in which the fans of a particular TV show, comic book, or actor, or an entire style of entertainment such as science fiction or anime, gather together to meet famous personalities (and each other) face-to-face. ... Midtown Manhattan, looking north from the Empire State Building, 2005 New York City (officially named the City of New York) is the most populous city in the state of New York and the entire United States. ... The cover for the actual Bluntman and Chronic comic book. ... A lesbian is a woman who is romantically and sexually attracted only to other women. ...


This new development deepens tension between Holden and Banky. Banky begins to dig up dirt on Alyssa's past, and reports to Holden that Alyssa participated in a threesome in high school. Holden is deeply disturbed by this revelation, previously believing that Alyssa had never been sexually involved with men. Holden angrily confronts Alyssa while attending a hockey game. During a tearful argument, she tells Holden about her "many" youthful sexual experimentations. Holden learns that she is not a lesbian in the strictest sense (lesbian-identified bisexual would better describe her sexual orientation). She apologizes for letting him believe that he was the only man she had been with; however, she refuses to apologize for her past, and Holden leaves. For the 1994 film, see Threesome (film). ... In human sexuality, bisexuality describes a man or woman having a sexual orientation to persons of either or both sexes (a man or woman who sexually likes both sexes; people who are sexually and/or romantically attracted to both males and females). ...


Later, during a lunch with Jay and Silent Bob, Silent Bob reveals that he was once in a relationship similar to Holden's. Despite the fact that he was in love with his girlfriend, Amy, his insecurities about her adventurous sexual past caused him to sabotage the relationship. Angry at himself for letting her go, he's spent the rest of his life since then "chasing Amy." Inspired by Silent Bob's story, Holden devises a plan to fix both his relationship with Alyssa and his fractured friendship with Banky: he invites them both over, and claims that the three of them must have sex with each other. Though initially appalled, Banky agrees to participate, whereas Alyssa dumps him on the spot, stating that though she loves him, she will not be his whore. Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) and Jay (Jason Mewes) during the events of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back Jay and Silent Bob are fictional characters portrayed by Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith, respectively, in Kevin Smiths View Askewniverse. ... For other uses, see Sabotage (disambiguation). ...


One year later, both Banky and Alyssa are busy promoting their own respective comics at a comic book convention in New York. Holden has a brief conversation with Alyssa, and gives her a copy of Chasing Amy, his new comic based on their failed relationship.

A special edition DVD was released with 1.85:1 anamorphic Widescreen picture abd Dolby 5.1 surround sound. It includes the following bonus features: Audio commentary from cast and crew; Introduction by Kevin Smith; Deleted scenes; Outtakes; and Trailer.


Chasing Amy was originally released as a Criterion Collection Laserdisc. Smith raised eyebrows when he recorded the running commentary for the Laserdisc, as he started it by saying, "This is a laserdisc, and I'd like to take a moment to say fuck DVD." The running commentary was recorded when there was an animosity between Laserdisc and DVD enthusiasts, and Smith was a staunch Laserdisc supporter. When Criterion released the DVD - which re-uses the Laserdisc running commentary - Smith recorded a special introduction in which he apologized for the comment and jokingly attributed it to Jason Mewes. The Criterion Collection is a joint venture between Janus Films and The Voyager Company that was begun in the mid 1980s for the purpose of releasing authoritative consumer versions of classic and important contemporary films on the laserdisc and DVD formats. ...

It was rumored that 2007 would see the release of a Chasing Amy X DVD, in a similar vein as the Clerks X DVD and the Mallrats: 10th Anniversary DVDs.

  • In the tenth anniversary Clerks. DVD, Alyssa Jones appeared in what was called "The Lost Scene".

She also reveals that Mallrats does in fact take place the day before Clerks.

Trivia

  • The "titty cake" shown in the montage was a last-second addition to the film. Kevin Smith designed the face of the cake himself. Director of photography Dave Klein didn't have a good amount of time to light the scene and Ben Affleck, not slated to work that night, was slightly drunk when they shot the scene. [3].
  • Originally, Jay and Silent Bob were to not appear in the film. Their images were to only be seen as Bluntman and Chronic. Instead, Silent Bob delivers his longest monologue in any of his movies about the titular Amy.
  • The characters Holden and Banky Edwards refer to the names of Holden Caulfield and Ed Banky of J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye.
  • In Japan, the screenplay of Chasing Amy was adapted into a novel by Kenichi Eguchi and published by Aoyama Publishing. The unique concept of the book is that it is roughly half-novel, half-manga, with Moyoco Anno providing the art for the comic book pages. Joey Lauren Adams reportedly saw the book and hated it, as she felt that her character's past sexual experiences were depicted in too graphic a fashion. (Source = Vizmedia.com)
  • On the Criterion Collection DVD release, the disc reads "Copyright 1996 Too Askew Prod. Inc.". Although Kevin Smith's production company is actually called "View Askew," the company "Too Askew" was created for the sole purpose of producing the movie as a means of avoiding financial liability in the event that they would be sued.
  • Banky refers to the Hartford Whalers as "a bunch of fuckin' faggots." Ironically, in the earlier Smith film Mallrats, Jason Lee's character Brodie Bruce is playing as the Whalers on the Sega Saturn NHL game when his girlfriend dumps him.
  • In a deleted scene, Steve-Dave and Walt Grover the Fanboy (returning characters from Mallrats played by Bryan Johnson and Walt Flanagan) fervently criticize Bluntman and Chronic. Smith has said that the critiques were almost word for word copies of select critics' reviews of Mallrats.
  • In an interview with Rolling Stone, Chris Rock stated that this was his favorite film. When Kevin Smith heard about this, he invited Rock to appear in his next film Dogma.
  • The character La Fours from Smith's previous movie Mallrats can be seen as a drawing in the opening scene at the comic book convention.
  • Marvel comics editor-in-chief Joe Quesada makes a small cameo in this film. He would later be the artist on Kevin Smith's run on Daredevil. Quesada also drew one of the comic book covers in the opening credits to Mallrats and makes a cameo in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
