So the fifth and (thank God) final Twilight movie is coming out this weekend and I am proud to say ‘No, no I have not seen any of the Twilight movies.’ I say that out loud for two reasons. First, incase any of you women out there are looking for a real man. You know, the kind who watches Ghostbusters while quoting everyone’s line of dialogue out loud the entire time. And secondly, because I refuse to support any movie about ‘vampires’ in which they can just walk around in the day time, aren’t interested in screwing some hot piece of human ass and fall in love with the most uninteresting girl at their high school.
So believe me when I say that I’ve never seen one of those movies. That being said…I’ve also told people I’ve never seen Notting Hill or Pitch Perfect. I once even told a cop that no, I didn’t see that nice Italian man shoot that snitch and dump the body in the river my house overlooked, but that was for different, far more disturbing reasons. Point being, sometimes chick flicks are actually pretty enjoyable–the dialogue is witty, there’s hot trim to stare at and sooner or later the main chick usually ends up in her underwear.
So yes, I do have the entire Rambo Bluray collection on my shelf for all to see, but if you were to open those shell cases you’d find a movie that probably stars either Hugh Grant or Drew Barrymore, or both (Didn’t you guys just love Music & Lyrics?!) hidden inside. Because what guy wants to own up to the fact that when no one’s at home and the door’s locked just to be sure, if a Reese Witherspoon movie is just starting at HBO when we sit down in front of the TV, chances are we’re going to sit through it. ‘Just for a few minutes,’ we lie to ourselves. And ninety minutes later our eyes are watery and we’ve eaten three pints of Ben and Jerry’s.
So here are the 10 best chick flicks every guy is ashamed for secretly kind of digging.
