If you happen to have a special lady in your life with very poor movie tastes, she probably likes to watch a lot of bullshit with Katherine Heigl or Jennifer Lopez or god forbid even Julia Horsecackle Roberts in it. Fortunately, there are some decent movies out there revolving around love stories that you both can enjoy this Valentine’s Day… AND BEYOND!!
Valley Girl (1983)
A punk Nicolas Cage, and underrated hotties Elizabeth Daly (TOPLESS) and Michelle Meyrink.
Sixteen Candles (1984)
Sweet story, totally ’80s and a character named Long Duk Dong. The great thing about Molly Ringwald back then is that she was cute but not really hot, so it was believable that she would have to pine over the captain of the football team.
I actually love this movie and have seen it numerous times. Ok, so it’s not so much a chick flick but there’s a fine line between chick flick and romantic comedy. And you get to see Goldie Hawn in a thong back before she melted.
When Harry Met Sally… (1989)
Pretty good flick, depending on how annoying you find Billy Crystal. I don’t care for him one bit, but this is still watchable.
Demi Moore’s haircut actually knocks her hotness down a peg but otherwise this is about ghosts and there are demons, too. It still blows my mind that it’s directed by Jerry Zucker of Airplane! and Top Secret! fame.
Ok, the first 19 hours or so of this is torture to sit through. I’ve never actually seen all of it because it’s boring, has a horrible script and some pretty bad performances by otherwise good actors. However, Kate Winslet’s boobs (where the name TITanic came from), and the sinking part is pretty good.
As Good as It Gets (1997)
This wouldn’t be nearly as watchable as it is without Jack Nicholson. There’s no way anybody else could have performed his role as well. Except Walter Matthau.
Fools Rush In (1997)
A Matthew Perry movie, watchable??? Yeah, this really isn’t too bad. And it’s got Salma Hayek at her apex of hotness.
The Wedding Singer (1998)
The last funny movie Adam Sandler ever did. Full of gnarly ’80s references and Drew Barrymore is a cutie pie. R.I.P., this Adam Sandler.
Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001)
It’s really not that good but it’s not horrible and women seem to think this is the greatest movie ever made. The sequel, though, is a complete nightmare.
Some good laughs in parts, although immensely overhyped. Single-handily started the trend of women shitting in sinks.
1) this post is awesome
b) what is that on Goldie’s butt??
3) how did About Schmidt on naked Kathy Bates not make the cut????
TRUE OR FALSE: Melissa McCarthy REALLY did shit in that sink??
2) My heart
3) That movie is definitely pure male fantasy. Women are too intimidated by her body.
4) False. She used a stuntshitter.
I call bullshit! You never sit through chick flicks for me, I get sent to the bedroom.
That’s the only thing you do in the bedroom!
I have never seen Bridget Jones Diary – the entire thought of it made me a bit nauseous. Did love Bridesmaids – avoided it for a long time because I thought it would be godawful. Didn’t chicks shitting in sinks start with Baby Mama though?
Sixteen Candles is one of the funniest Teen-Rom-Com movies ever!
Lol, you got called out by the wife! To me that makes this epic Valentines post even epicerer.
Torture, every Damn one of them! I will not sit thru them, Sam I am. My wife won’t even sit thru them. She hates chick flicks.
To be fair, my wife is half German. She thinks Carrie is a chick flick 🙂
It’s not? It’s all about what it’s like getting your period, right?
I try to avoid chick flicks wherever possible but there are some good ones here….although you missed out ‘Legally Blonde’ and ‘Bring it On.’ Yeah I said it, I like ‘Bring it On.’
True, those two aren’t horrible. Drop Dead Gorgeous isn’t bad either.
YES! You’re so right. I forgot about ‘Drop Dead Gorgeous.’ Brittany Murphy is brilliant in that movie.
