I'll admit that some chick flicks are good. The really bad ones are bad because the character is poorly written, silly, or just vague. But with a great female lead, the word chick flick never comes to mind as I'm watching it.
These are awesome films with strong female leads
My Life Without Me
In Her Shoes (Toni's character mostly)
Is a strong woman necessarily always "tough chick"? Just curious.
Yeah....I thought this was about women characters that are well-developed (as in, the writing and performance has complexity, not simply a one-dimensional character to drive the plot). Then halfway through the thread I noticed it became about "tough and strong women" characters, many of whom seem quite flat and unreal to me....
