2/7/2014 by Steven ReaWith their matching hipster goatees and deadpan cynicism, Affleck and Lee evince the easy rapport of old buds.
2/7/2014 by Paul TataraThere 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.
2/7/2014 by Jay BoyarAs in Smith's debut film, Clerks, there's something about the scruffy Chasing Amy that breaks through the pretenses of more conventional movies.
2/7/2014 by John HartlEven 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.
New York Daily News
2/7/2014 by Dave KehrChasing 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.
2/7/2014 by Mark CaroThe 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.
2/3/2009 by Owen GleibermanSmith isn't just fooling around anymore.
2/3/2009The third time out is the real charm for writer-director Kevin Smith.
2/3/2009 by Jonathan RosenbaumNeither PC nor crudely anti-PC, this tough and tender movie, like its characters, is prepared to take emotional risks, and the comic book milieu is deftly sketched in.
9/5/2008 by Todd McCarthyAmusing and appealing.
3/31/2008 by David AnsenInstead of cool twenty-something irony, Smith startles us with raw emotional honesty.
6/24/2006 by Geoff AndrewThe script moves beyond Smith's customary cataloguing of male adolescent ignorance and idiocy to offer sharp insights into the romanticism and pragmatism, pride and double standards that define the tangled threesome.
Minneapolis Star Tribune
11/6/2002 by Jeff StricklerSmith is at his best when he's letting his movie be silly. The more he chases significance, the more Chasing Amy fails to find its way.
1/22/2002 by Eric BraceCan a script exploring some truly deep questions about human sexuality and emotions be any shoddier and wooden? Will Miramax continue to fund one of the worst directors in the business? Don't stay tuned.
5/11/2001 by Peter TraversIt's a rude blast of gleeful provocation, a farce about emotional pain, a drama about sexual slapstick.
Los Angeles Times
2/14/2001 by Kevin ThomasWork of such fierce intelligence and emotional honesty that it blows away the competition when it comes to contemporary romantic comedy.
The New Republic
1/1/2000 by Stanley KauffmannSmith makes it crackle, with various aggressive honesties and wit.
1/1/2000 by Sean P. MeansWhat Smith does best in Chasing Amy is write clever, raunchy and emotionally true-to-life dialogue, particularly in the arguments between Holden and Alyssa.
1/1/2000 by Mike ClarkSmith's most provocative outing yet and certainly the toughest to forget.
1/1/2000 by Richard SchickelA brutally honest romance. If you loved Sleepless in Seattle, you'll just hate it.
