Smith isn't just fooling around anymore.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly  full review
 
The third time out is the real charm for writer-director Kevin Smith.
Hollywood Reporter, Hollywood Reporter
 
Neither 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.
Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader  full review
 
Amusing and appealing.
Todd McCarthy, Variety  full review
 
Instead of cool twenty-something irony, Smith startles us with raw emotional honesty.
David Ansen, Newsweek  full review
 
Can 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.
Eric Brace, Washington Post  full review
 
It's a rude blast of gleeful provocation, a farce about emotional pain, a drama about sexual slapstick.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
 
Work of such fierce intelligence and emotional honesty that it blows away the competition when it comes to contemporary romantic comedy.
Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
While the surface of his film sparkles with sharp, ironic dialogue, deeper issues are forming, and Chasing Amy develops into a film of touching insights.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
 
It's too loud, sometimes, and it's always pushy, but it's got heart.
Mary Brennan, Film.com
 
What Smith does best in Chasing Amy is write clever, raunchy and emotionally true-to-life dialogue, particularly in the arguments between Holden and Alyssa.
Sean Means, Film.com
 
Often funny but ultimately wrenching
Susan Stark, Detroit News  full review
