I thinnk Chasing Amy takes place a couple of months (if not years) after Clerks, because Alyssa mentions her best friend f***ed a dead guy in the quick stop.  Holden asks "You know that girl!?!" and Alyssa says something like she did until she went into the psych ward (or something, my memory's not great), implying that some time has gone by and that Catlin Bree has become an urban legand. (I suppose that all could have happened within a week, though, in fairness.)

Also, Smith himself wrote a J&SB comic book, "Chasing Dogma", explaining how the pair got from the end of Chasing Amy to their entrance in Dogma, which would imply if Amy's real, then Dogma must be as well.  And, if you read the Wizard articles in the opening of Chasing Amy, Holden & Brodie made their name writing a comic called "37!?", about foul-mouthed convienence store clerks.  So if Amy's real, does that make Clerks a comic?

Off the top of my head, in Alyssa's monolouge outside the hockey arena in Chasing Amy, one of the people she says she slept with was her character in Mallrats.  Also, the nickname 'finger-cuffs' was given to her by Rick Derris, the jerk in Clerks who claimed Dante grunted when he lifted the milk.  And the girl who enters later in that scene in Clerks is Alyssa's little sister, if memory serves.  (I'm told there's a while flowchart for this in the DVD booklet for Chasing Amy.)

I could go on, but my brain's starting to hurt.

Yeah a lot of it could have been written as in jokes by banky and holden, Even though mallrats and clerks seem to intwine, In fact I'm pretty sure they took place on the same day it doesn't make sense that jay and bob would be hanging out at the mall and outside quick stop.

There's also the fact that the girl who died in the pools funeral seems to come the day after her death which is strange.

To my knowledge, the chronological order is:
(the same weekend)
1. Mallrats
2. Clerks

(a few months later)
3. Chasing Amy
4. Dogma

(a few more months later)
5. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back

As for Jay and Bob being at the Quik-Stop and the mall...well, it's possible that they move around that day. After all, it's not like they have jobs or anything that would keep them still.

Why not? I mean come on she was in it was!

Ok anyway I would say either Clerks or Dogma as best flick but if you have seen all of the series and TV show Jay & Silent Bob Strile Back is a contender for best aswell.

Plus on Kevin Smith movies what do people think of him writing/directing the "Green Hornet" flick? From what little he has said about it on his website it sounds awesome.

And wait there is more! (Hey it gives reason for a few months bump) He also has said after about 3 or so projects ( that is Green Hornet, Fletch Worn and erm...something else) that he will be doing another flick including Jay & Bob!

Snooch to the Nooch!

His latest movie. It didn't make much money. (Not that his other ones did.) I liked it. It was cute. Maybe too cute.

Ok Clerks came out on region 2 disc but not in the UK, it only must have came out in luxunbourg or something but check out ebay as they normally have a couple going for good prices and English is one of the lanuage options.

Or you could just wait till X-mas as there is a 10th Anniversary Special edition coming out with a ton of extras on 3 discs! 3 discs! How many? 3!  big grin    big grin

Let me see if I can crack this code. Were you masturbating, boozey?  tongue Movies in english turn you on, eh?

Dogma is my favorite. Followed by Clerks, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, then Jersey Girl.

Bah! I don't like Kevin Smith. His movies are not that bad, but his filmmaking and writing techniques are not worth discussing. He probably would just go and tell jokes about him losing his virginity, losing weight, etc.
