This small-scale, low-budget movie is defined by an honest searching quality.
80
Funny, profane and surprisingly painful at times.

Smith makes it crackle, with various aggressive honesties and wit. [May 5, 1997}
75
Smith shows the grasp of character and offbeat humor that really registered in "Clerks," and a subtler mastery of film fluidity and professionalism than anything in the cheesy, amateurish "Mallrats."
70
What Smith does best in Chasing Amy is write clever, raunchy and emotionally true-to-life dialogue.
70
Has a squawky, endearing, pugnacious angst about it, like Adams. It's too loud, sometimes, and it's always pushy, but it's got heart.
70
Its honesty and insights are refreshing.
