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 movie is mentioned in "Love Cliche" by Bran Van 3000, both by name, and by reference to one of the themes of this film.

I don't know. I love Chow Yun Fat. I just don't see him playing Madman.
The scene with Holden and Alyssa is shot on a two-way street from inside the car, but a one way street when they get out of the car. Also, they are going the wrong way on that street (just before they get back into the car a street sign is visible over the roof of the car).
The producers wish to thank ... the Allred family ... Jack Anderson's music ...
In the skee-ball scene, Alyssa tells Holden that Banky is a passive-aggressive gay basher, partially for what he said in the EA Hockey scene;
