    Personal Best
    Desert Hearts
    Heavenly Creatures
    Bound
    The Kids are Alright

    Movies about lesbians are the very definition of "chick flicks."

    I saw The Piano three times, each with a different woman.

    But I also saw 9 1/2 Weeks, Blue Velvet, Mikey and Nicky, and Africa Adio once each, which was more than enough, for my purposes.

    The only chick flicks I ever liked were Steal Magnolias and that movie was just a good movie. Great dialogue and characters so I would be hard pressed to call it a chick flick because chick flicks suck. The only good thing about chick flicks is you get to hang out with a chick when you watch them.

    The other would be The Princess Bride. I would argue this is isn't even close to being a chick flick. Its got Andrea the Giant and Carey Elwes in it. Lots of swords and action. Great lines though out the movie.

    Besides that I rather get up and dance around the room in my under pants. I may have to do something else for a couple hours but at least it's not watching chick flicks.

    Hence Night of the Living Dead.

    Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton fit well.

    And the Spiderman movies excel

    I'll give Thelma and Louise a thumbs up, a classic IMO. Great cast with Susan Sarandon & Geena, Brad Pitt, Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen, Christopher Mac Donald.

    One I forgot to mention - Girl Interrupted, with Winona Ryder and Angela Jolie.

    I've looked up a bunch of the CF's mentioned here on Netflix, highest ratings 1.5 - 2 . :neutral:

    Gotta be at least a 3 to be in my queue.

    I thought we were supposed to reject the drama and here is a whole thread all about drama!

    One, plus five, plus bonus inane comment

    The thinking man's chick flick, and one of my favorite films of all time: Dangerous Liaisons (1988)


    Also:

    Fabulous Baker Boys
    The Color Purple
    As Good As It Gets
    Breakfast At Tiffany's
    Something's Gotta Give


    The ex and I used to sit around on lazy, cold winter Sunday afternoons and watch back-to-back Lifetime TV movies; the more brainless the plot, the better. Popcorn for the brain.

    For Gods sake don't watch the English Patient. Fake a heart attack or something. Leave the country but don't watch it.

    I dig the theme music though

    I mostly hate action adventure movies and anything of the sort.

    I had a girlfriend for a while who loved James Bond films. We once went to a theatre to see the new JB flick (can't remember which one, they're all the same to me); couldn't take it, had to leave. She had driven us to the theatre, so I took a taxi home as she obviously wanted to see the silly film. She REALLY hated me for that.

    I know it was super tacky on my part... couldn't help it, it was just that bad. Couldn't do it. I guess that makes me a communist. Or just a guy that doesn't like most action adventure & James Bond flicks.

    Practical Magic always seems to be lurking right at the front of the movie cabinet, and it ain't me or my 10 year old boy doing it. Honest!
