If we're only allowed to select from those three, Mallrats simply because of the awesomeness of Jason Lee.
If we throw in Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, my favorite is J&SBSB. I know it's not the best movie in the world, but it's certainly my favorite of the Jersey ones. All the cameos, inside jokes and such, just everything in it is hysterical and I can watch it anytime and it doesn't get old. Good stuff.
We're the middle children of history...no purpose or place. We have no Great War, no Great Depression. Our great war, our defining crucible, is a spiritual war.
Easily the most mature of the three and the most emotionally substantial. Good acting and some nice bits of writing, especially making the two male leads so fundamentally wrong. There's no absolute right-thinking person for the audience to latch on to. These are contradictory, maddening, normal people.

For all your CZW and Nickels Trivia information. I am now the Sex Division Trivia Champion, and on September 10 I face someone who actually works part time in the WWE! Will I be starstruck, or will I hold him down worse than the WWE holds down Val Venis? STAY TUNED!

Voters at IMDB ranked them as follows (all out of 10): Clerks: 7.9 Mallrats: 7.2 Chasing Amy: 7.6 Dogma: 7.3 Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back: 6.9
My favorites are all the ones they rate the lowest. Clerks never fails to make me laugh. Dogma interests me, especially as a person who is unsure about things religiously (I mean from a religious perspective, not "religiously" as "all the time"). Jay & Silent Bob is also really funny, but it took me a while before I really understood what was going on (Jason Lee playing two different characters, and Ben Affleck both playing himself and another character, will do that).
Clerks just seemed kind of pointless to me, and while I didn't mind Chasing Amy, it is the least funniest of them all.
In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

I would have enjoyed Dogma a bit more if I hadn't read Mage. Turn Kevin Matchstick into a woman, and substitute religion for mythology, and he didn't even bother to change out the hockey skating punks.
Clerks is hands-down my winner. I saw Chasing Amy once and thought it was really good, but never had any desire to see it again. I did not like Mallrats at all the first time I saw it, but I seem to enjoy it more and more each time I watch it (it's on HBO a lot and I'm bored a lot, so hence I've seen it a lot).
If we throw in the other movies, then Dogma is far and away my favorite. I really don't know why I love that movie so much, but I do. Hey, any movie that has George Carlin as a catholic priest instantly goes to my top 5.
The answer to WWE's financial problems...
Never 'Wiener of the Day', and is actually quite bitter about it.
BANKY (leafing through mags) Varietyís the spice of life. I like a wide selection. Sometimes Iím in the mood for nasty close-ups, sometimes I like them arty and air-brushed. Some times itís a spread brown-eye kind of night, sometimes itís girl-on-girl time. Sometimes a steamy letter will do it, sometimes - not often, but sometimes - I like the idea of a chick with a horse.
