These are a few movies that men can watch without laughing for the wrong reason. Occasionally a guy is going to have to watch a Chick Flick.

1) When Harry Met Sally (1989)

As soon as Crystal spits the grapes against the car window, you know this movie is going to be okay for a guy. Probably the best of the chick flicks a guy can watch. Very funny.

Streisand before she got too big and political. She doesn't sing in it.
