There are some good chick flicks

Since I got on the subject yesterday about how much I hate chick flicks, I'm going to have to back-pedal a bit. I do have a few favorites that are sometimes included in the chick flick genre, but I know for a fact that many men like these movies, too and I have even seen some male eye-tearing (not eye-rolling) or laughing with the ladies at the theatre while watching some of these:

1. Shirley Valentine
2. Bridges of Madison County
3. Remains of the Day
4. Jackie Brown
5. Sense and Sensibility
6. Bridget Jones's Diary
7. Breakfast at Tiffany's
8. Alien

There are probably more I enjoy, but my brain isn't functioning properly with "Dancing Queen" still rolling around in my head.

My husband enjoys watching
"Pretty Woman " with me because he says "I know how much you enjoy it."
I think that is one of the reasons why I love him. He likes to see me having a good time.

How about "Fried Green Tomatoes"? And "The Color Purple"?

Both favorites of mine. :)

This made me laugh because just a couple of weeks ago I was watching a chick flick kind of movie with my man and I looked over and he was wiping tears off his face. I said, "Hey you're bawling in a Chick flick!" He insisted he just had something in his eye but he's become an old softy.

There's got to be some moniker that's more apropos than "chick flick" for us ladies of a certain age... ;-)

I haven't thought of myself as a "chick" since about 1984...

Hmmm... How about "womanly films"? There's some elegance to it, I think...

You see, when I think of the word "flick," I see what I'm doing down on my knees with little Nerf-y balls that I'm batting at my cats. I also recall that disgusting thing my older brother used to do with (ahem) nasal fragments... :-D

Womanly films I like (that my husband also loves): Educating Rita * Meet Joe Black * Love Actually * Notting Hill * Something's Gotta Give * Shadowlands * Remains of the Day * Away From Her * Iris

Your blog's going on my read-list!
