      Oh my yes. Pretty Womn, Clueless, Crazy Rich Asians, most of Meg Ryan’s early movies, Moonstruck, Devil Wears Prada, those Hugh Grant movies, Pitch Perfect. Watched them all any number of times. Even the older ones like Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

      Personally I prefer a good little cry by myself to some gorefest or even unsettling films.

      I have watched at times those Hallmark and Lifetime movies and some are enjoyable but a few are a little over the top …for me anyway

      I have always loved a romantic comedy,  and a good emotional drama.  I also like action and Sci fi.

      I just watched the latest Grey’s anatomy,  I cried for ateast half of it.  I didn’t understand why I cry at every emotional movie, or commercial. Now I realize it has been my femme side coming out.

      I love a good cry.

      Hi Sandy,

      I made the mistake of watching ‘Beaches’ for the first time in the week after my wife died. Whoops!

      But since then it’s become my ‘go to’ movie when I’m in a certain mood. And it still opens the floodgates, lol.

        Marti, I’ve almost forgotten this post and the movie ‘beaches’. Now I just read you post and am nearly ready to fall apart. It has only been 5 days since my fist post and 2 days ago I lost my mother, her body just completely shut down since Monday. Every time I start to talk about it I almost start crying but do the male thing, change subjects and hold it in. What I really need to do is let my fem side completely out and just have the BIG cry.

          Oh Sandy I’m so sorry. Such a sad time for you, but, honest, it will pass over time. Try to forget about the men-don’t-cry thing. It’ll come in its own time if you let it.

          Love and hugs

      Yes Sandy

      Gradually started watching films I would previously never have, and yes it really does help me connect with the inner feminine feelings that used to be buried under a lifetime of learned masculinity.

      Pride and Prejudice

      Bridesmaids

      Belle

      27 Dresses

      The Devil Wears Prada

      Maybe Baby

      Mama Mia et

      Nobody gets killed, no aliens, no tough guys, no testosterone fuelled fight scenes, but I’m no longer afraid to say I enjoyed them, and it helps me further understand the feminine side of life.

      ❤️B

          Hi, Grace, I first became a Katherine Heigl fan when she played Izzy in Grey’s Anatomy. I also loved “27 Dresses”. She plays a great role in “Jenny’s Wedding” as well, and if you haven’t seen that one, you should check it out.

      While not a chick flic in any sense… Forrest Gump is one of my all time favs!
      I will admit to being an early Hugh Grant fan and rewatch the classics on a regular binge.
      I do prefer well made movies of any genre and will feel with the characters.
      Has Polly become a softer chick flic watching person? I rather think not… I’ve always been able to immerse and identify with the characters. Feel with them and their struggles!

      Long live good films… Polly xxx

      Hello girls.

      Just realised I must be a bit of a Hugh grant fan….. definitely Love Actually, but also Four Weddings and a Funeral and  Notting Hill…

      Wonderful stuff,

      Grace ❤️.

        Thanks Grace. My knee is getting better, some times in small leaps. A couple of days ago I quit using a crutch. I am now walking sometimes a mile at a time, but need to get to 2 miles so I can get back to work.

      Pretty Woman.  Hands down my favorite since I first saw it 30 odd years ago.  Love the chemistry of Roberts and Gere.  Just love Julia in this period.

      Would The Quiet Man rate a chick flick?  Even tho it has John Wayne, it also has Maureen…. and its such a cute Irish tale…🙂

      Hi Sandy, in our family I’m the one who watches “chick flicks” and “rom coms” (as well as reading those bodice ripping historical romance books).  My wife, on the other hand, is a bit of a considered film expert here in NW Canada. She runs a film festival, has been a script writer and a playwright, and a producer on a number of films.  For her, the genre of the film doesn’t much matter; rather it has to be a “good” and “well-made” film, with an excellent script and a believable protagonist.  I’m on the program review team for the film festival and have watched over 10,000 films in the last four years.  There sure is a lot of crap out there (the vast majority) but a good film is wow so worthwhile to find.

      As noted by others, there are channels devoted to chick flicks, i.e. Hallmark, Heart & Home, Oprah has a lot, and if you go to Netflix or Amazon Prime, they have chick flick categories where you can easily over indulge. Being retired, I usually watch at least one movie per day (not counting film fest entries) and more often than not it is a chick flick.  I’m also a sucker for films about dogs.  But please don’t let them die – damn I weep like a baby when a dog dies in a film.  Sorry, it is so easy for me to go off on a tangent.   Stay healthy, stay safe, All the Best, Hugs, Krista.

      Well, there’s….
      Pretty Woman
      Love Actually
      …. as mentioned by Diana Morgan

      And I don’t know if any of these would be considered “chick flicks”, but I wouldn’t admit to the Duck Dynasty types that I’d ever watch anything like this:
      My Best Friend’s Wedding
      27 Dresses
      Jenny’s Wedding
      Kissing Jessica Stein

      Then there’s romantic period pieces like:
      Emma (BBC production starring Romola Garai)
      Sense and Sensibility (Emma Thompson)
      Pride and Prejudice (Keira Knightley)
      Jane Eyre (Masterpiece Theatre)

      I’ve watched most of these at least twice, and I’ve always kept a box of tissues close at hand.

        Camryn I totally agree about the Jane Austin mini series you list, I’ve always loved Pride & Prejudice, did you see the last mini series of Vanity Fair with Olivia Cooke as Becky? It was a bit quirky with Michael Palin doing the intro and “All along the watchtower ” as theme music sort of a modern take on it without affecting the story, anyway I loved it.

        I also liked Bleak House with Gillian Anderson.

          Thanks for that tip, Diana! I see that Vanity Fair is on Amazon Prime video and I’m putting it on my watch list!

          OBTW, in looking thru my DVD collection, I found that I should have included these “chick flicks” in my above list:

          Sleepless in Seattle
          You’ve Got Mail
          Persuasion (Jane Austin)

            When I was at high school (too many years ago) we went to a cinema to see the 1967 BBC version of Vanity Fair starring the lovely Susan Hampshire and Franco Zefferellis Romeo & Juliet with Olivia Hussey. I’m sure my love of period dramas dates from this time!

      I watch a lot of Hallmark channel and other chick flicks. Just curl up on the sofa with a drink, some popcorn and a box of kleenex. Before my “transformation” I would watch a lot of action flicks and the like, will still watch one occasionally but I would rather watch a movie that tugs on my emotions.

      P.S. Thank God for waterproof mascara.

      I have always loved chick flicks Sandy. Have always been an emotional girl and love tear jerkers… Years ago I saw ‘The Notebook’. Can’t recall much of it now, however I recall enjoying it imensely.

      ‘Steel Magnolias’ is also another wonderful film… Absolutely love Sally Field’s performance when she broke down in front of her friends at the cemetary… so powerful. Just watched a clip of that scene on Youtube 😭 pass the Kleenex please…

      Love,

      Gen ❤

          Mostly SVU, Gen; but a bit of Criminal Intent, also. Oddly, not much of the original, and she stopped viewing the new episodes.

            Criminal Intent is my favorite L&O… Vincent D’Onofrio was excellent in his roll as detective Robert Goren… My wife and I call him ’tilty head’ as he sometimes would bend at the waist while looking at the purp…

      I’ve been watching a lot of Hallmark movies lately with my wife.  I also love 50 First Dates and the other day I watched The Devil Wears Prada and I absolutely LOVED it.  I’ve been turned off the masculine action films and books for a long while now.  I love chick flicks and chick lit.  They are my addiction now.

      It’s nice to give the manly and gorefest movies a break for a while and chill out with the likes of Love Actually and Pretty Woman. Have to keep Diana happy or she gets a mite tetchy….
