Holden [=McNeil=] (Creator/BenAffleck) is an artist who works fairly successfully for his "Bluntman and Chronic" comic along with his best friend Banky Edwards (Creator/JasonLee). Holden meets fellow comic artist Alyssa Jones (Joey Lauren Adams) through a mutual friend at a convention, and after connecting with her on an intensely interpersonal level finds himself greatly smitten; before he can make a move, however, he discovers that Alyssa is a lesbian. He is devastated by that information, but they still become incredibly close friends. There is one hitch, however: he is still in love with her.

A 1997 romantic comedy-drama written and directed by Creator/KevinSmith, and the third film in TheViewAskewniverse series, ''Chasing Amy'' was originally inspired by a brief scene in ''Go Fish'' (cowritten by Smith's friend Creator/GuinevereTurner, who has a cameo here), wherein one of that film's lesbian characters imagines her friends passing judgment on her for "selling out" by sleeping with a man. In real life, Kevin Smith was dating Joey Lauren Adams at the time he was writing the script, which was also partly inspired by her. Smith has even admitted that the film is basically an apology to Adams for his real-life overreaction upon learning of her sexual past while the two were dating.

The film explores concepts of sexuality and love, how you can't necessarily just turn off your feelings and the social pressure you get. It was generally well-received, winning two awards at the 1998 Independent Spirit Awards (Best Screenplay for Smith and Best Supporting Actor for Jason Lee). Joey Lauren Adams was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy/Musical. There's even been speculation for years that it was a nose away from winning an ''[[AcademyAward Oscar]]'' for Best Original Screenplay.
