woord van de dag: 14 februari 2009
A film that indulges in the hopes and dreams of women and/or girls. A film that has a happy, fuzzy, ridiculously unrealistic ending.
My best friend's wedding, Mona Lisa Smile, Runaway Bride, The Wedding Planner, Maid in Manhattan, Josie and the pussycats, Mean girls, A cinderella story, Freaky Friday.... I could go on forever!
A film that has the following formula:
Two people fall in love
They get along fine
There is some kind of misunderstanding
They break up
They get back together
Oh no, not another boring formulaic chick flick!
I word which refers to movies characteristically geered at young females in their twenties and late teens. Must include: love scenes, kissing, something sad, a happy ending, Flipper.
LAURA: Hey wanna watch "The Happy Movie" with me?
DANNY: That chick flick!?!?! No way.
A movie a guy goes to with the sole purpose of making out.
Did you hook up with Leslie?
Yeah, we went to see a chick flick.
A poor excuse for a movie that usually ends of with people crying, not because of the plot, but because of how they wasted $6.50 on a movie ticket. Also it seems that the only type of people that watch them are either chicks and guys who go out with the chicks.
Chick flicks are a waste of money.
A movie that embodies all that is wrong with the world; a movie which displays a gross over-indulgence into, and exploration of, the workings of the female psyche and the accomanying emotional tendencies.
Sixteen Candles (Herb
A genre of movies that has been formed all on it's own combining the genres of Romance, Drama, and Comedy. These movies are filled with cliche after cliche, yet so irresistable for the female population to go out and see the next version. Each contains the same plot with the Character names changed. Producers see sales of these movies soar when the members of the female population are eithe PMSing or just plain MSing. Must have Kleenex box in hand.
Mandy: "I started my period this week.."
Carrie: "That's it, time to rent 'A Walk To Remember'"
