Now this is the hardest post that Tato has ever done. Requested by none other than DangerouslyShy(well not so shy in making requests,now, is she?)
Her challenge, and I had chosen to accept it-was to post on Good Chick Flicks! Yaani Chick flicks even guys could watch and like. Now such an arduos task..I've been rummaging thru my memory for a while to come up with these list. I decided to go via mushy route and chose what flicks appealed to me in a manner that I myself would be a sucker for in real life.
Disclaimer: u have to turn on your mushy side for this post!
So here we go! Not in any particular order:
"you had me at hello"
"You complete me"
WOW think of what state of mind you must be in for that to make total sense!
If that ain't love, I don't know what else is.
An Officer and a Gentleman
I was a sucker for this flick. First it was long and i love long movies...and i fell for that whole "love lift us up where we belong" routine...
That washing off the feet by the lake...I gave that marks. Any cute pedicured toes out thereI can wash?
Two bodies entwined while playing in clay pretending to be doing pottery. And that Unchained Melodies song playing..." my darling...ive hungered for your kiss......"
And Demi Moore and that One-Eyed crying....
Coming to America
Cammon it was a sweet movie and funny too...happy ending with the Prince getting his true love! And the girl getting her prince!
Save the last dance
So totally not just a chick flick...and the killer soundtrack...a modern version of Jungle Fever
Oh this is so a CHICK FLICK it hurts.(sink the bloody ship already!) But that line of ati "Promise me something Rose..and promise me you will never let go of that promise"
Guess it does make it in the cut unfortunately
Eternal Sunshine of a spotless mind
I totally yawned through this one...but i so digged the fact that even after erasing someone from your mind you are destined to end up together!
Yup makes the cut- a classic.
When a Man Loves a Woman
Probably my best Romantic movie of all time. You do know Meg Ryan was the Queen of romantic movies...but here she delivered.If she ever deserved an oscar it was right here. I think even When Harry Met Sally makes the list.
Sleepless in Seatle perhaps as well...but it was too too boring. But cute idea!
50 First Dates
I think after Meg Ryan comes Drew Barrymore in this genre..and if I was to pick my fav of all time it would have to be this one. Maybe cause of cheap humor!
This was also a classic...woiye and she died on him!
My Fair Lady
Now I have never watched the classics like Casablanca and Gone with the Wind which apparently rule this field. So i f i was to chose a classic this would be it...plus the songs were good too.
So that there is my list
I here Bridges of Madison County and Notebook should also be here...you unleash your fav Chick Flick aka Romantic Movie....
I'd also like to add that Upside down kiss in Spiderman1. KarateKid2 him fighting for that ka-babe.That love triangle in Pearl Harbor.
Another Disclaimer: I may have ommitted other movies cause this aint a post Tato would normally do...but i rose up to the challenge.
