    I love John Cusack and this movie was one of the first I watched with my wife when we first started dating.

    Mine is High Fidelity. Still John Cusack.

    Does that count?

    John Cusack is the best reason (not sex related) to ever watch a chick flick

  • Xanadu. Great stuff--just an awesome time warp.

    Places in the Heart and Murphy's Romance--had a crush on Sally Field as a kid, always happy to watch these with the wife.

    Always--I grew up where the whole middle of the movie was filmed, so it's a must see.

  • Brides Maid but you could argue that it's not a chick flick just a hilarious movie with women as the lead characters.

    It's a chick flick, it's just disguised. Take away the sports background and look at it again. Hot rich guy with list of hot girlfriends loses everything and develops relationship with awkward single mom. They fall in love, have a friendship with a funny African American couple, a cute kid steals the show, and one of the most quoted lines in love story history makes everyone cry as the hot guy confesses his love for the awkward single mom. If it wasn't a sports movie, it would be blatant.

  • I'm not really sure what constitutes a chick flick. I didn't care much for The Notebook. Hated Titanic. I liked Serendipity well enough but that's because I love Kate Beckinsale. Along Came Polly? Knocked Up? Are those chick flicks?

    I do have a bit of an affinity for late 90's young adult/high school/coming-of-age movies like She's All That, Ten Things I Hate About You and Can't Hardly Wait. Do those count? Nick & Norah's infinite playlist?

    I would say all of those count, but maybe that's just me.

    I think a chick flick is any movie that centers around an unlikely love story. I don't know how else to define it.

  • I like P.S. I Love You... and will watch most Hugh Grant movies..except the one with Sarah Jessica Parker. Hugh Grant is just really watchable for me. About a Boy especially is really good and probably a chick flick though I think anyone could enjoy it.

  • Figured I'd revive an old thread because I went on a "nostalgia binge" today with films. Watched Back to the Future & Terminator 2, then (this one's not nostalgia) The Butterfly Effect.

    I have to say - while The Butterfly Effect didn't make me "cry" per se, it made my eyes glisten a couple times. It's a very dark and emotionally depressing film. Absolutely outstanding job by Ashton Kutcher proving he has very high-level acting abilities. Fantastic score to go along with it, as well.

    It's dark and depressing in a similar sort of way to Requiem for a Dream, which is another outstanding "dark" film.

    Fried Green Tomatoes (but caveat it is maybe simply fundamentally strong female characters)

    I've never seen "The Notebook" but have read the book (well, ***looking at floor***, a Reader's Digest condensed book version!) and loved it.

    Probably not really chick flicks, but I love stuff like: Something About Mary, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Heartbreak Kid, Couples Retreat.

    My wife hates chick flicks, so that automatically makes her cool in my book.

    I'd say a "chick flick" is a movie written and developed for women. The Notebook is the most obvious sort of chick flick, and also the worst.

    But IMO too many good to great movies get pigeonholed into being called chick flicks. Some of my favorites;


    500 Days of Summer
    Crazy, Stupid, Love
    50/50
    Midnight in Paris
    Crazy Heart
    Waitress
    Easy A
    Enough Said (James Gandolfini's last movie, very good)

    Great coming of Age/Chick Flick movies:
    The Spectacular Now
    Perks of Being a Wallflower
    The Way Way Back

  • For anyone who listed one of Nicholas Sparks's page vomit, I ask you to consider this:

    http://www.cracked.com/funny-4725-nicholas-sparks/

    BTW, anything that qualifies as a chick flick that stars Cary Grant, whose movies I grew up watching. He was my mom's favorite actor so I saw a lot of his stuff, and at least a third of it qualifies as a chick flick. Probably a bit of a stretch on the definition, but Charade is my favorite.
