I have to admit, I liked "the Princess Bride" and "Shakespeare in Love".

The rest of the lists, I either never have seen (60%) or found to be wretched (40%).

"Terms of Endearment" sucked up 130 minutes of my life I'll never get back.

Doing that pretty much qualifies it as a gal movie, right?

An Affair To Remember...Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr


Arrrgh.....no offense, Dorothy, but that must be my wife's favorite women's movie as well.

The reason I say that is that it seems to be on every Sunday afternoon on Turner Classic Movies, when I am trying to turn on whatever NFL game might be the alternative.

Denise,

Other than Legends of the Fall your post is not within the spirit of this thread. Although I must say most of the other movies mentioned on this thread cause me to retch uncontrollably.

I guess I'm not exactly sure of this "spirit" of which we speak. The last time I checked, I'm a "gal", and these are the movies I like. Perhaps this, and the fact that most of the movies on this list too make me retch uncontrollably, is why my husband and I get along so well. To each her own I say.

I agree completely. I just wanted to see what people think are good "chick flick" movies. I try not to categorize movies that way but wanted to see what movies people would put in that category.

Legends of the Fall is probably about as "chick flick" as I get, although I will confess to crying at the end of The Notebook (however, I cry harder, and every time, at the end of Braveheart).

I can't go by what movies make me cry. I cry at the drop of a hat. It's my worst weakness. See?

I think that if what we are after are sterotypical "chick-flicks", then for fun, I think the guys should put their best efforts into a "guy-cry" list. That would be entertaining. I'm guessing Brian's Song, Old Yeller and Where the Red Fern Grows would be in the mix somewhere. Come on guys. Start a thread!

Hi! It's neat someone started a "gals only" thread.

My favorites are the movies that remind me of feelings I've had in my life.

The Notebook! At the beginning of the movie, I thought, "My God, Are they making a movie about me?"
The Bridges of Madison County. When Meryl Streep grabbed the door handle of the truck to be with Clint Eastwood, I knew exactly how she felt!
Kitty Foyle. She was SO in love with Dennis Morgan, whose charm reminded me of my first love! Was he Irish?

I know I started the thread but most of the movies mentioned here I've never seen. Anything termed a "chick flick" I tend to avoid like the plague.

Interesting how "Chick Flicks" has been politically corrected to "Gal Movies".

Already mentioned, but "Sex in the City" (the movie) really sucked. That's a portion of my life I'll never get back.

After incessant mocking, for never having viewed the following two, and to make it stop (essentially forced to do so) I'll add... ahh, they weren't so bad ... but definitely fit into the category ...

- "Gone with the Wind" (mentioned above)
- "Doctor Zhivago"

Larry, I wasn't really trying to be politically correct. I was just trying to mirror the "Guy movies" thread.
