Okay, girls (or guys O:)), what's your favorite chick-flick? And why?

Also, if you could write/rewrite a chick-flick, what would you want to include/change?

Thanks for finding that thread, danadelfos, but since it hasn't been posted on in 4 months, I think that a new one is fine, especially since it has a new twist to it. :) Most people who posted in the old one probably have no idea what they said (myself included ;)) and a lot of people have joined since then too.

Including me. :) I wondered if there was an old one, but I didn't look back further than a page or two. Thanks for the info.

I'm actually not that huge a fan of chick-flicks myself (sure, I like Kate & Leopold, Ever After, and Pride & Prejudice), but I had an idea for maybe writing one recently. I just wanted to know what everyone else especially likes about chick-flicks, or what 'makes' a chick-flick for them.

oh mercy, I love so many of them it's hard to choose! But Sleepless in Seattle is one of my all-time favorites. Why? Well, Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks are awesome as co-stars. The references to "Affair to Remember" which was an awesome movie except Meg doesn't get a spinal cord injury in this film, which is a nice happy twist. (sorry if that ruined it for anyone who has yet to see this movie). The kids are cute, Seattle is great...umm...what's not to like? Winter must be awfully cold for those with no warm memories. sniff sniff. you learn how to fall in love in a movie too, which is a great skill.

Return to Me is a movie I really like. I hate how sad the first part of the movie makes me though. And I'd write in more kissing. :D

Laws of Attraction and Kate and Leopold are my favorites. (My pastor absolutely adores Cinderella Man, but I have yet to see that one. He's basically assigned it to me as homework, though.)

If I could change anything about a chick flick, the first thing that comes to mind is Kate and Leopold. The part where he gets in bed with her (nothing bad!) really bothered me because his character would never have done that and would have been completely appalled. And when he kissed her, I wasn't too happy, but not quite as outraged as the other scene.

Good movie. Especially, I like the part when she passes the guy by and her heart reacts. Kinda brings up thoughts of organ donation, obviously , i guess....I wonder what my organs will do after I die.

Don't think that's a chick-flick..

and what was wrong with him kissing her? A real person from his time period wouldn't have?

I like Lorna Doone, but I would love to take out some of the kissing and make the costume designers add more material to the tops of the ladies dresses!

What Women Want


We watched The Phantom Of The Opera a little while ago, and all throughout we were pointing out where we woulda killed "the boyfriend" as we called him. I started that. Kept pointing out where I would make him die and then a new boyfriend would prance in, than die too. We ran through about thirty of them. That's how I'd've made it. A chick flick/horror/comedy/spoof/remake.

*sigh* I love chick flicks... :D

Some of my favorites are:
The Sound of Music
While You Were Sleeping
The Phantom of the Opera
Anne of Green Gables
Pride & Prejudice
Ever After
The Princess Diaries
Return To Me
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
You've Got Mail
Just Like Heaven
Legally Blonde

And there's many more, but I'm getting choked up just thinking about the sweetness of all of them. :inlove:

Well, based on what he got out of it, it is. But he tends to pull strange things out of movies.

You know what, I didn't live during that period and I don't have a lot of knowledge about it. But I don't think he would have after the little amount of time he'd known her. It just didn't seem to fit his character.

Cinderella Man has a lot of family values and Jim sacrifices himself for his wife and children repeatedly, but it's not a 'chick-flick' in the traditional sense. I think it would be commonly catagorized as a drama.
