Chasing Amy is a film which has arguably no more an adventurous plot than 'boy meets girl, boy gets girl, boy loses girl.' However, in Chasing Amy, Writer and director Kevin Smith uses his special blend of off-beat characters, clever humor, and engaging dialogue to turn a simple romantic comedy into a complex, intelligent, thought provoking, and very original take on love, friendship, and the wages of jealousy. The much underrated Jason Lee is nothing short of superb and Ben Affleck gives a performance he has never since bettered. The total antithesis of the usual dreary run of the mill rom-com, Chasing Amy is a must see movie.
