You may be asking: Who are you to write an article about what chick flicks men like? Aren't you a woman? Don't you only have sisters? And isn't your father a fan of all chick flicks?
Thank you for asking those strangely well-informed questions.
And yes, those all are true.
However, these two things are also true.
First of all, I'm very well-read on the chick flick movie scene so there's no questioning my expertise in the land of romantic comedies.
Second, believe it or not, I do know a few fellas. I've even coerced some of them to watch sappy, romantic movies. Also, in preparation for this article, I conducted a highly scientific (that may be stretching it) facebook survey, as well as asked men directly for their input. So this information comes directly from authoritative sources.
As one of the few romantic comedies told from the guy's perspective, 'Hitch' is a great go-to for a chick flick the both of you will love.
I'm not absolutely sure what the male (or 'mail') appeal is here but I guess guys just have good taste because you can't go wrong with this 'Shop Around the Corner' modernization.
For the gals: Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks at their best.
For the guys: Godfather references.
A Walk to Remember
I was definitely reluctant to include this one on the list. I mean, it's got all the cheese of nachos and all the sappiness of maple syrup. But the men have spoken, and for some reason, they like this one.
