What is the best chick flick?

I vote for Pretty Woman or Officer And A Gentleman.

08-24-2007, 10:27
Calendar Girls or Steel Magnolias

08-24-2007, 10:29

08-24-2007, 10:42
The Notebook

08-24-2007, 11:31
Fried Green Tomatoes, and Out of Africa

08-25-2007, 14:55
Can guys play, too?

Somewhere In Time or Ghost

08-25-2007, 15:32
Saw...sorry I had to, I won't do it again.:smiley2:

scuba Widow
08-25-2007, 15:55
yes guys can play too

how about Grease

08-25-2007, 15:58
Thank you, Scuba Widow. I've been chastised for daring to make an entry in the Women's Forum.

Just a few days ago I sat down with my 7 yr old daughter and watched High School Musical (haven't seen the second one yet) and thoroughly enjoyed it! The soundtrack is pretty good. So I ask my female (and male as well) diving peers: is this acceptable?

no problem...I like it when a man shows his sensitive side.

scuba Widow
08-25-2007, 16:01
sure...why not? I love love all musical type movies usually like Urban Cowboy.

08-25-2007, 20:11
Sixteen Candles--thatsa chick flick, right?

Sixteen Candles--thatsa chick flick, right?

very good...you guys are more sensitive than we give you credit for.

08-25-2007, 20:20
serendipity...then immediately watch grosse point blank and then high fidelity....John cusack is kinda cool in a weird way. Just like Nicolas cage has one character no matter the situation!

scuba Widow
08-25-2007, 20:23
Nicholas Cage is awesome no matter what

08-25-2007, 22:07
Crazy from the heart or american president

08-25-2007, 22:50
Mine is "Love Actually" because it's a great combo of a chick-flick and a holiday movie.

And hot guys with accents help it too :)

08-26-2007, 13:52
50 First Dates...Sleepless in Seattle....:smilie40:

Ditto on "Love Actually". My eyes well up just thinking about it. My favorite part is the little boy and, of course, Rodrigo Santoro in his boxer briefs! Also loved "Cinema Paradiso". Actually wept loudly first time I saw it.:smiley19:

08-27-2007, 10:04
When Harry Met Sally
Pride and Prejudice (the BBC Colin Firth version)

08-27-2007, 22:12
Good choice on the Pride and Prejudice selection!!

Oh, Mr. Darcy.

This does remind that I love both Bridget Jones movies.

08-28-2007, 18:02
I'm a big fan of Thelma and Louise for the girls kick a$$ vibe, oh yeah and a young Brad Pitt doesn't hurt either. Dirty Dancing is the ultimate have-to-watch-it-everytime-it's-on-tv chickflick.

08-28-2007, 18:52
I have a ton of Best. But I am not sure if I can only pick one though. So I have picked my top three. Notebook, Steel Magnoliasand Message in a Bottle.

The Notebook even gets to guys

(no...that's not a tear...damned allergies again)

I'll never admit it outside of here.

08-30-2007, 23:00
Wow, thanks for the start, reminded me of some great movies that I need to definately watch again. Some new ones out on the market,

08-31-2007, 00:24
City of Angels

08-31-2007, 06:40
I do not know if you would call it a chick flick, but I love the Wedding Singer

If that does not count, what about Father of the Bride, both 1 and 2

City of Angels

This was a great one!

08-31-2007, 22:04
Hey I made a thread let alone an entry. The wife would vote for "Dirty Dancing" ; I would vote for "Ghost" or Freedom Writers".

08-31-2007, 23:34
Casa Blanca or Notting Hill....both were great movies

09-01-2007, 00:07
Just saw "you've got mail" and "Sleepless in Seattle" is also playing. And the ever popular "When Harry met Sallie".

09-02-2007, 13:33
I just remember one of the best chick flicks ever The Titanic.

10-06-2007, 17:27
wow great movies. add to the list african queen. bogey is great. on golden pond . and peggy sue got married

10-07-2007, 00:38
Dirty Dancing for sure and You've Got Mail
The Notebook and Maid in Manhattan
and I always watch at least one sappy holiday movie on Lifetime that my hubby hates.

10-07-2007, 11:41
Definitely An Officer and a Gentleman...the ending still makes me cry and clap.

10-07-2007, 16:37
doctor zhivago, The Bridges of Madison County

10-07-2007, 16:38
The Sweetest Thing with Cameron Diaz, Selma Blair & Christina Applegate cracked me up. Fun chick flick, no crying in this one that I remember, I usually end up teary eyed in most chick flicks.:smiley17:

9 1/2 weeks

10-09-2007, 08:32
Cool Thread... just what I need :) Have been wanting to hire a few chick flicks to chill out to, and do not know where to start!

For me:
Sleepless in Seattle
Pretty Woman
High School Musical (it counts right?)
Bride and Prejudice (my kids love it too)
Roman Holiday (Audrey Hepburn... I'm showing my age!!!)
Intermezzo - don't know who, don't know when, only that it was black and white and I cried like crazy when they showed it on TV.

10-29-2007, 00:25
serendipity or notting hill...not a huge hugh grant fan (gasp!), but such a cute story...

10-29-2007, 08:30
Good list. Here a few I've enjoyed with Cshel.

As Good as it Gets
Shakespeare in Love
Finding Neverland
Under the Tuscan Sun
Somewhere in Time
The Lake House
Braveheart ... Yes it was a love story

10-29-2007, 21:35

10-30-2007, 00:42
Mr. Holand's opus
The goodbye girl
Deep Throat

Sorry this was getting boaring.

10-30-2007, 02:44
My wife and I like The Notebook

11-19-2007, 03:59
Bridges of Madison County
Body Heat

11-19-2007, 19:42
I was going to say "Notting Hill", but i'm not a huge Julia Roberts fan. What about "Pretty in Pink", "Say Anything", "much Ado About nothing", "Muriel's Wedding", "Bridget Jone's Diary", and "Shakespeare in Love"?

11-19-2007, 21:03
ooooh, i'd forgotten about "much ado about nothing"....and "sense and sensibility"...both of which my husband won't even attempt to watch!

11-30-2007, 19:23
princess bride. all of me

12-13-2007, 16:33
Thanks for who put City of Angels...couldnt think of the name...I will admit it outside of Here, being 6'2 250 lbs and carrying a gun, dont get too much grielf about it :)

12-21-2007, 08:21
The Notebook.....

Excellent movie, have to give props to Fried Green Tomatoes as well.:smiley32:

12-21-2007, 19:26
Even though Im not a women, Ive been forced to watch "sweet home alabama" multiple times by the mrs.

12-22-2007, 21:43
I always thought that Far and Away was a cool love story, thus qualifying it as a "chick flick"

12-30-2007, 23:00
Everyone posted great movies. My favorite of all times is Gone with the Wind. My favorite quote from Scarlett is "I can't think about this now, I will think about this tomorrow"

01-06-2008, 16:25
The Joy Luck Club. Even though I'm not Chinese, I've never seen a film capture mother/daughter relationships so well.

Oh, and League of their Own, which even Madonna was good in - that's great directing!

01-20-2008, 14:43
The ones I've found I'll watch over and over include: Ever After, Bridget Jones' Diaries (have watched both about 2 or 3 times in the last couple months or so; that's all that seems to be on TV lately!), My Best Friend's Wedding, Dirty Dancing, When Harry met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, Pretty Women, Notting Hills, The Truth About Cats and Dogs. Saw Waitress recently and liked that one too.

And if you haven't seen The Bucket List yet - it's a must!! This is definitely on my list!!!

01-22-2008, 00:21
I love Grease and Pretty Woman! :smiley20:

01-24-2008, 21:43
Just saw '27 Dresses' it was cute, predictable, but cute.

01-24-2008, 23:40
50 First Dates
The Holiday
Certain Episodes of Star Wars

300 - an excellent plot/classic tragic ending, and come on, you can't beat a bunch of hot guys running around in loin cloths XD

01-28-2008, 09:51
Ghost and Titanic get my votes. Also, not really chick flicks, but ANYTHING with Adam Sandler.

01-29-2008, 04:09
Out of Africa...

02-10-2008, 21:06
definately ghost and somewhere in time.

02-10-2008, 21:31
Brokedown Palace is probably my favorite movie of all time.

02-10-2008, 22:26
Its a toss up between "House in the Square" and "The Enchanted Cottage".
