(Clerks, Mallrats, or Chasing Amy)

Clerks. My favorite comedy of all time.

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 purpose or place. We have no Great War, no Great Depression. Our great war, our defining crucible, is a spiritual war.

Chasing Amy.

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.

Clerks. Mallrats has its moments, but man, Chasing Amy is hard to watch now. It's... really kind of lame. Not nearly as bad as Jersey Girl, though, which is one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

Clerks is far above Chasing Amy which is farther above Mallrats. I do agree with the Psychotic Midget that J&SBSB is above them all.

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.

...oh bother.

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.

Despite the presence of Priscilla Barnes' naked boobies in "Mallrats", I also have to go with "Clerks". Randall is one of my favorite characters ever.

Clerks, hands down.

I worked 18 months in a convenience store...and it was exactly like Clerks suggests. Plus, it has my favorite last line of any movie: "You're closed."

1 - Chasing Amy - Only one of the three I saw in the theater
2 - Clerks
3 - Mallrats

It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.

This is a cruel question. How can one decide?
All movies are brilliant depending on the mood.
Clerks for its cynism, Mallrats for its goofiness and Chasing Amy for the story.

I will say Mallrats because Lee's character is most hilarious in that one.
Though ofcourse in Amy he is a tracer and ...argh!
Head is gonna explode!
Amy! Clerks! Mallrats! Clerks!

I go for Mallrats because the 10 year anniversary dvd will be out soon.

Chasing Amy. It never fails to deliver the funny to me.

Finger cuffs.
"What's a nubian?".
"Ooo Yanni!".
"So... you're a TRACER.".
Archie is gay.

There was just SO much in this movie that still cracks me up when ever I see it. Even the bad singing from Renee Zelwigger was funny.

J&SBStrikeBack is a strong second though.

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.

I take it there's a reason that's under spoiler tags? Because if it's true, this will be the greatest episode ever. (spoiler text)
