Chasing Amy - 3/9/13

Every week, the members of the Saturday Night Freak Show (Brent, Tom, Colin, Travis & Sean) gather in a subterranean screening room. Each week, a different member of the group chooses a movie to watch, and afterwards we enter the Thunderdome to debate the movie's merit for the entertainment of you, the listener.

This week, Brent places Kevin Smith's Chasing Amy (1997) on the block.  Pre-Good Will Hunting/Bennifer/Argo-director, Ben Affleck, stars as a comic book writer who falls in love with a cute lesbian comic book author (Joey Lauren Adams), and the hilarious hijinks that ensue in this unconventional love story.  We argue about the cinematic oeuvre of former filmmaker-turned-podcast-impresario-and-stand-up-comedian, Smith; trace character links through the View-Askewniverse; learn about the hitherto unknown "90's Stank"; and crush Brent's dreams of sending this podcast to Kevin Smith himself.  NOTE: due to a technical problem, this week's podcast's audio is overmodulated.  We've done everything we can to make salvage it.  We promise to do better next time!
