Chick Flicks

My darling husband says that the definition of a chick flick is a movie that includes at least one humiliating public apology, often including a marriage proposal. The Not Coming to a Theater Near You site has a terrific salute to Chick Flicks -- just click on the upper right corner of the picture for some chick flick essentials: the little black dress and "when Meg (Ryan) met Nora (Ephron)" as well as reviews of canon films like "Working Girl," "Walking and Talking," and the indispensible "Say Anything." Holding a boom box overhead blasting "In Your Eyes" is as good as a humiliating public apology anyday, at least in the movies.
