How the heck
Chick Flicks A Guy Can Stomach
Occasionally men and women will want to watch a movie together and sometimes that mean chick flick. According to Wikipedia, a chick flick is a movie which is designed or considered to appeal mainly to women, and generally focusing more on romance or relationships
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)
Directed by: Rob Reiner
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.
2) Return to Me (2000)
Very funny story. Hunt and Belushi are great as is the rest of cast. Basic story, man's wife is killed in a car accident, donates heart to a woman in need. Later falls in love with a woman who happened to get the heart. Pass the bottled water, please.
Rated: 6.7 out of 10 at IMDB
3) Six Days Seven Nights (1998)
One of those relationship comedies. Harrison Ford explains how a woman can get a man excited:"You know how a women gets a man excited? She shows up. That's it. We're guys, we're easy." Hey, its got pirates and lots of scenery.
4) Shop Around the Corner (1940)
Yes Oz fans, the Wizard, Frank Morgan stars in this movie. "You've Got Mail" is a remake of this original "weeper." The romantic comedy has new sales clerk Margaret Sullivan hating James Stewart, the senior sales clerk who as it turns out is her pen-pal lover. The story ends with the Christmas rush and as such can even be a "Christmas Movie" is you like.
5) You've Got Mail (1998)
Hanks is owns a chain of discount book stores. Ryan owns the "Shop Around the Corner" Hanks destroys the business and still gets the girl in the end.
Rated: 6.2 out of 10 at IMDB (I think the critics were getting tired of Meg Ryan)
6) What's Up, Doc? (1972)
Streisand before she got too big and political. She doesn't sing in it.
Rated: 7.3 out of 10 at IMDB
