1995 - The movie went over so well that Smith was able to make another movie, Mallrats. This movie, as Kevin has said, was meant to be a "smart Porkys". Although it didn't do well at all in the box office, it has done more then well on video store shelves and is usually the favorite among many Smith fans.

1997 - Smith has said that his relationship with Adams has been much of an inspiration for his next movie, Chasing Amy, Smith's comedy drama which won two independent Spirit awards: Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Role for Jason Lee.

         - Married to Jennifer Schwalbach Smith on April 25th.
