Chasing Amy

Trivia: The collector who calls Banky a tracer is played by film producer Scott Mosier.

Trivia: During the lesbian bar scene, they are all around the table. The lights behind them glow eerily like portholes. They re-enact the scene from "Jaws" where they compare injuries, only with cunnilingus stories. Even putting the leg on the table comes from "Jaws." This scene was originally meant to be in Mallrats, but was rejected by the studio.

Trivia: When Holden and Alyssa are talking in the Meow Mix club, they mention the Quick Stop and one event that took place there in "Clerks" (other Kevin Smith movie). They also talk about the girl who drowned in the YMCA pool and that is also mentioned in "Clerks". (00:19:20 - 00:20:10)

Trivia: When Alyssa is telling Holden about all of her "unusual" sexual experiences she mentions Shannon Hamilton, Ben Affleck's character from "Mallrats."

Trivia: When Alyssa is bearing her soul to Holden about all of her sexual encounters, she mentions leaving her prom halfway through to have sex with a 26 year old man and Gwen Turner in the back of a limo. In "Mallrats" (1995), Joey Lauren Adams played Gwen Turner.

Trivia: When Banky and Alyssa are swapping stories in the lesbian bar, Banky shows how little he can move his head after Brandi Svenning's dad caught him with her. Brandi Svenning is in "Mallrats," along with her psychotic father, Jared.

Trivia: The film's events take place two years after the events of "Clerks," which in turn takes place the day after "Mallrats."

Trivia: In some of the opening convention scenes with Banky and Holden, the bottom left corner of their newest "Bluntman & Chronic" issue can be seen, with the drawing of a security guard that looks a lot like LaFours from "Mallrats."

Trivia: Not necessarily a mistake, but this is something to notice. Throughout the entire movie Holden has a goatee. However, on the cover of the Criterion Collection DVD Holden does not have any facial hair.

Trivia: The comic-book shop customer's rant about "Bluntman and Chronic" was actually copied from a real film review for "Mallrats".

Continuity mistake: When Silent Bob is telling the Amy story in the diner, his cigarette mysteriously grows from barely above the filter to about half length, then it disappears from his hand entirely, and he draws a new one. (01:30:40)
