Top Chick Flicks

by vbchica14

A guide to some of the top chick flick movies.

Chick flicks are movies, generally romantic comedies, designed to appeal to the young female demographic. Chick flicks typically focus on romantic relationships but can also be movies focusing on female friendship or female empowerment. Generally the main character (protagonist) is woman/girl that female audiences can related to. Chick flicks are typically released around Valentine's Day and there is even a popular movie titled Valentine's Day. Valentine's Day is one of many romantic comedies that involves multiple plot lines and characters and, in this instance, multiple big name celebrities. Similar movies include New Year's Eve, Love Actually, and He's Just Not That Into You.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

A Classic Chick Flick

The beloved Audrey Hepburn movie, Breakfast at Tiffany's, is a classic film that also happens to be a chick flick.  Breakfast at Tiffany's tells the story of Holly Golightly, a charming socialite in the 1960's who lives alone. Her carefree independence is changed when she meets her neighbor, an aspiring writer named Paul.  Paul is suffering from writer's block while being kept by a wealthy woman.  Paul and Holly begin to develop a romance when Doc appears and complicates matters after revealing the truth about Holly's past.  This bittersweet romance is perhaps most remembered for Hepburn's iconic image as Holly in the classic black dress and updo hairstyle.

Pretty Woman

Story of a Hooker With a Heart of Gold

Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back--that is the equation for the "classic" love story, but this love story has a slight twist as the girl is a hooker and the relationship is meant to be all business.  But in the movie that made Julia Roberts a star, love gets in the way. Just as the world fell in love with Julia Roberts, so did Richard Gere and in the end, he was climbing up a fire escape declaring his love in a movie that shows that anyone can fall in love.

Titanic

Oscar Award Winning Chick Flick

The second highest grossing film of all time, only recently knocked off by Avatar, not only won the Oscar for best picture but also the hearts of the world.  It proves that chick flicks can be critically acclaimed and award winning films, not just "fluff."  Titanic focused on getting every detail of the doomed vessel's first and final voyage correct except one detail, the lover story.  Rose and Jack are two star crossed lovers from two different worlds who fall in love during the Titanic's doomed voyage.  There love is epic and memorialized in the over played (and annoying) "My Heart Will Go On."
