6 "Chick Flicks"
He'll Click With!

Sometimes getting a guy to watch an occasional “chick-flick” is like getting him to go for a prostate exam, tag along for a shopping trip to the mall, or meet our parents.   Let’s just say it’s not on the top of his priority list!

Wouldn’t you agree?

After all, men are physical.  They are conquerors.  They dig contact sports, movies with blood and violence, and plenty of action!  They’re just wired differently.

Still, on our “planet”, we like activities that allow us to share, get in touch with our emotions, and encourage conversation and meditation. 

But, there’s hope. “Sappy” doesn’t have to mean crappy.

What exactly is a “chick-flick”?  These are movies or programs that are considered tearjerkers, have romantic themes or sensitive subjects, and have low to no fighting or action filled activities.  They typically encourage dialogue or deep reflection from viewers.
And men avoid them like Superman avoids kryptonite!

Still here are a half-dozen chick flick movies your man will enjoy!

In this crowd pleaser, Taye Diggs plays a sexy, savvy, commitment phobic author, and the best man at football star, Morris Chestnut’s wedding.  The wedding party reunites college buddies and former lovers, and deals with some pretty relevant relationship and social issues.  

The Guy Appeal? Besides featuring some of the biggest Black sex symbols as “eye candy”, there’s a bachelor party scene that is raunchy, fun, and full of excitement!  He won’t wanna’ miss it.

Mel Gibson portrays a swinging bachelor and ad executive.  Due to a freak accident with a hair dryer, he gains the ability to read women’s minds, giving him an edge in personal and professional matters.

The Guy Appeal?  What guy at some point and time or another hasn’t wished he could read women’s minds to bypass some of the drama and confusion that often plagues interpersonal relationships.

Julia Roberts realizes that she’s in love with her best friend, who just so happens to be on the verge of marrying someone else.  This picture is hilarious, clever, and full of surprises!

The Guy Appeal?  Can you say “JULIA ROBERTS”?!

This is an oldie but goodie.  No matter how often I watch it, it never gets boring.  Storyline---Patrick Swayze plays a ghost who teams up with  psychic, (Whoopi Goldberg) to reveal the events behind his murder.  It’s also a great love story about a young couple totally into each other and every day relationship issues.

The Guy Appeal? Demi and Patrick have great chemistry in this movie.  Adding to the enjoyment is a well-developed plot, hilarious performances, special effects, and ongoing mystery.  “You’ll fall in love with Ghost,” says Joel Siegel of Good Morning America.

In this film, Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep are said to have “made magic”.  He plays a National Geographic photographer, who by chance, meets a housewife with whom he later has a torrid affair.  It deals with difficult decisions, choices, family, commitment, consequences, and love that spans decades.

The Guy Appeal? Clint Eastwood is a “man’s man. Also, the love scenes are totally believable and touching.  Let your guy cry on this one.

A nice, gawky, Greek girl is deemed as destined to be an old maid with loser potential. But that’s until this plain Jane sets her sight on a better life, defies tradition, goes to college, gets a job, and does a total life “make-over”.

The Guy Appeal? This movie is like a modern day Cinderella story.  He won’t stop laughing at the many cultural, familial, and romantic mishaps in this one!
