Quite truly, it is a little hard to define the chick flick genre but mostly movies with this moniker do have some common characteristics. It seems that they appeal mostly to women, probably to the younger generation; they concentrate on strong female characters in romantic or familial relationships.
The best of chick flicks
Genre or no some of the best chick flicks are those that you would like to see a hundred times and can actually recite line by line. They are for sure the most watchable movies of all time.
The best of chick flicks list has to have Titanic in it. The tragedy that strikes the love birds Jack and Rose makes the best of us weep. This list should also definitely include Beaches, Steel Magnolias and Thelma and Louise. How can you leave out The Notebook? One thing to note in is that these chick flicks are definite tearers. Nobody can see the final scene of The Notebook’s last scene without exhausting a tissue box.
Their funny side
Contrary to what most might think, chick flicks are not always dramas. The best of them have also tickled you to the core. Romantic comedies or what we like to call rom coms like Harry met Sally and Bridesmaid are a lovely example. The movie Bridesmaid touched the crude, rude side of women and yet was socially accepted and also managed to be hilarious and popular.
If you look at the list of these chick flicks you would see women singing out their hearts, women bonding and probably having a heart break just because they are the only person who’s dressed up as a bunny. Chick flicks are everything from swooning romances to tear jerkers to even funny classics like Clueless.
It is the perfect way to have a girl’s night with a touch of tears and laughter. They might be called sappy, but what a way to spend the night!
