Not all suck. I think most of the mainstream chick flicks grasp that genre in a firm choke hold slowly suffocating cinematography. So that being said there are movies out there that do focus on female leads that are intelligent and deeply personal without being corny.
What is the best romance movie/chick flick you watched? And why?
Japanese Story - The cinematography is great and the storyline is believable. No happy ending.
In Her Shoes - Another Toni movie (she's awesome and underrated). The story is simple without going down a corny road.
What is the worse romance movie/chick flick you watched? And why?
Anything with Ashton Kutcher (enough said).
Or why do you watch chick flicks/romance movies?
I'm a movie buff. I'll watch anything once. I just like stories.
How often do you watch them?
Not often. I stick with dramas that don't deal with romance.
Best chick flick:
Roman Holiday (Audry Hepburn)
Cinderella (with Leslie Caron)
Someone Like You (Ashley Judd)
Worst Chick Flicks: Anything that goes "I love you, I hate you, Now i love you but we cant be together, Now we can be together but you don't love me, wait you do love me, but I'm dying so I hate you, no wait I love you."
How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days - This one will always hold a special place in my heart for the humor.
Cruel Intentions - Sebastian shows what an INTJ is capable of in manipulation. Though I'm wondering if he's an ENTJ.
A Walk to Remember - A lot of people bash this one, but a lot of people praise it. It was one of the VERY few movies that made my eyes watery. I'm wondering if Jamie was an ISFJ. My favorite part of it:
10 Things I Hate About You - I managed to watch this for the first time a few months before The Dark Knight came out. Heath Ledger showed how awesome he is:
13 Going on 30 - I have a crush on Jennifer Garner, so this one goes without saying. This one had this amazing scene:
What Women Want
The Hot Chick - Another fun movie with a popular scene:
There was one other that I watched a few months ago. It came out early this year. It was about a guy explaining to his young daughter the story of how him and her mother got married. It involved 3 women, and she was trying to guess which one in the story was going to be her mother. I really wish I could remember it, but I loved it.
As for ones that sucked....Good Luck Chuck made me want to poke a needle in my eye. There was one other one...oh wait. Over Her Dead Body. That one was just...boring, and so predictable.
Another one, I'm not sure if it counts, but The Girl Next Door. I'm not sure if that counts as a chick flick.
