Holden and Banky are comic book artists. Everything's going good for them until they meet Alyssa, also a comic book artist. Holden falls for her, but his hopes are crushed when he finds out she's a lesbian.
This is the third film in Kevin Smith's intricately interconnected View Askewniverse series (the others being Clerks (1994), Mallrats (1995), Dogma (1999), Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001) and Clerks II (2006)). The movies are all linked by characters, themes and events and each contains numerous references to the others.

I don't know. I love Chow Yun Fat. I just don't see him playing Madman.
When Holden is looking at Alyssa's yearbook in the park, her photo is next to some guy with the last name beginning with P, Alyssa's last name is Jones.
To all the critics that didn't like our last movie: "All is forgiven."
