"Chasing Amy" by Yojimbo
Two comic book obsessed twenty somethings find their friendship threatened when one of them falls for a lesbian. The first hour of Chasing Amy is a typical example of Kevin Smith's take on relationships, pop culture and dick jokes, but it's done in a rather more mature and better observed way that his previous films (particularly the appalling Mallrats). Affleck and Lee's friendship seems believable enough to be genuine and there are are fair few genuinely funny moments, usually provided by Dwight Ewell's amusing gay black activist. Unfortunately, once the romance begins in earnest, Smith starts trying to be "profound" and it turns into a contrived photo love story with lots of whining, shouting and tedious soul searching. It's a fair attempt at making a chick flick that nerdy guys can relate to, but by the end it starts to feel like one of those boring relationship heavy episodes of Friends.
