Best Chick Flicks

Jenny and I may hate on a lot of chick stuff (makeup, shaving, dieting, relationships, etc) but man do we love our chick flicks. Here's a list of our favorites. I say "our" instead of "mine" because we completely agree in this ('cept maybe the last one).

1. Bridget Jones' Diary. Best. Movie. Ever. "Mr. Tits Pervert." That's all I have to say really.

2. Sweet Home Alabama. Funny story with this one. Jenny and I confessed to each other our desire to see this movie, then it turned up on rotation on the NYU free movie channel (where I went to college, yup). We promised each other we'd watch it together but wouldn't you know it I went and saw it without her. Oh man, she was so pissed when I told her! Hilarious.

3. 10 Things I Hate About You. I saw this movie in the theatre with Libby back in high school and I watched it again just the other night with my girl Morgan. Still a classic. Heath Ledger rest in peace.

4. Notting Hill. I don't give a fuck what anyone says, this movie is the tits. That last speech Hugh gives during that press conference? I tear up every goddamn time.

5. Clueless. Don't know if this counts as a chick flick, per se, but I know every single word by heart so there you go. It's given me some great everyday vernacular: "she's a full on a Monet," "I do NOT wear vehicular hair," "I dunno ...stuff," "I'm totally butt-crazy in love with Josh," "He does dress better than I do, what would I bring to the relationship," "I was surfing the crimson wave, I had to haul ass to the ladies," and finally, the ever classic, "She could be a farmer in those clothes." (Jenny used this one to describe my outfit the other night. Fuck I think I need a makeover.)

6. Pride and Prejudice. I prefer the BBC mini-series to the film with Keira What's-Her-Face but honestly I'll watch whichever one's on tv. I own the mini-series in both VHS and DVD form. Represent!


  1. Thanks for representing P&P! Collin Firth tickles my fancy:)

  2. ps its "i do NOT wear polyesther hair." although they are talking about the weave left in murray's car, so points for relevancy. i believe it goes murray: "were you jeepin' behind my back or something?" dionne: "no, but speaking of vehicular sex.."
    try me. just, try me.
    ps by now you have guessed that i am reading all entries backward, and am having a fantastic time doing so, thankyouverymuch
