"Darth Vader, the blackest brother in the galaxy, Nubian god! he's a spiritual brother, y'know, down with the force and all that good shit. Then this cracker, Skywalker, gets his hands on a light saber and the boy decides he's gonna run the fuckin' universe."

Chasing Amy is the third part of a trilogy that is actually the best of the three installments, that's a rarity in my book.

Kevin Smith last film in the so called Jersey Trilogy is a time capsule that incapsulates a universal message about love, friendship and fear to lose the one you care about.

The dialogues are entertaining, rude and crude when they need to be, the chemistry between the cast is awesome, they remind me of my own friends back in the day, talking about non-sense and struggling to find who you are in life. That's what's so interesting about Smith films (or at least his early work) he wrote from his own experiences and because of that it feels raw and real.

Like I said before without a film like Chasing Amy we wouldn't have the Judd Apatow films, the David Gordon Green films, the Chapelle show or so many films and shows since this films was release.
