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.
Before Mallrats (1995) was released, Kevin Smith had written this movie as a teen flick in the same vein as Clueless (1995), taking place in high school, with Ethan Suplee as one of the leads. Since Mallrats (1995) failed at the box-office, this film's setting and premise changed.

I don't know. I love Chow Yun Fat. I just don't see him playing Madman.
When Holden first tells Banky he loves Alyssa, Holden takes a drag on his cigarette and never exhales. He even talks a minute later with no smoke coming out of his mouth.
Jay and Silent Bob will return in "Dogma" ... (promise).
