    10 Chick Flicks That Actually Don’t Suck

    Ready to end your relationship if you have to sit through The Notebook one more time? Pop one of these flicks into the DVD player on movie night.

    1. Bound (1996)
    Director: The Wachowski Brothers
    Starring: Jennifer Tilly, Gina Gershon
    A mob princess, Violet, gets her pipes cleaned by the plumber, Corky. realizing sex is so much better when you’re rich, she and the Corkster steal $2 million from her beau, Joe Pantoliano (who played Ralph Cifaretto in The Sopranos). It doesn’t end well for him here, either.–Matt Barone, Jerry L. Barrow, Katie Hintz, and Clover Hope

    Who refers to Bound, Shrek and Knocked Up as chick flicks? Terrible list, terrible writing.

    How can you not have Love Actually on that list?

    Decent list. I have to agree a little bit.

    phil says:
    The list sucks. Out of sight, Knocked up, and Shrek are not chick flicks. Bound is basically softcore porn directed at guys. Half these movies are garbage with titties. Which i like, but they aren’t chick flicks, and they do suck. FAIL.

    Alan Graves says:
    Does Gia really count as a chick flick?? Also whats the etiquette when watching softcore porn with your gf? Are you allowed to whip it out and go to town? Ive never been in a relationship so Im not sure of the ground rules here

    12.9.08 at 4:25 am

    Testing Pattern says:
    Action, lesbians and Seth Rogen. Those are not chick flicks.

    Knocked up isnt a chick flick you fucking knob.

    tricky says:
    IMDB indicates that Bound is a 1996 movie, not 2004.

    Shrek,Out of Sight-neither are chick flicks-Bound–for lesbians only

    hey, be honest, everything besides knocked up sucks in this list. How could you ever come up with a list this bad? There are way better chick flicks around. I can understand the amount of pain you receive when building such a list, but i’d rather not do it at all than make it suck this much.

    12.9.08 at 8:29 am

    Miles H says:
    “The Craft”?! Have you actually watched that movie? It’s heinous! I felt simultaneously lobotomized and castrated being forced to watch it. And Soderbergh’s “Out of Sight” and “Bound” scarcely qualify as ‘chick-flicks’, unless you just mean that they have chicks in them (who engage in lesbian behaviour…), or they may induce discomfort in your date (see ‘lesbian behaviour’, above; see torture scene in Out of Sight).

    12.9.08 at 9:52 am

    Richard Head says:
    How many women do you know? Do you have any idea what a chick flick is? Shrek and Knocked Up are definately not chick flicks. Neither are half of the other movies on your list.

    12.9.08 at 10:11 am

    dmack says:
    Bound came out in ’96.

    12.9.08 at 10:20 am

    Bombfor says:
    This list is horrible. I don’t even know what qualifies half of these as chick flicks. Knocked Up? Seriously?

    Nice, I loved Clueless! jess

    Ummmm… I don’t think you have a clear understanding of what a chick flick is…

    Great article! Thanks!

    12.9.08 at 10:45 am

    Joshi says:
    Your definition of chick flick seems to be casting a fairly wide net if you think Shrek and Knocked Up are chick flicks.

    12.9.08 at 10:59 am

    bsdrummer says:
    After having to endure enough of these movies, I will say that this is not a bad list. I was surprised that What Women Want wasn’t on the list though.

    12.9.08 at 11:09 am

    Bob says:
    the person that wrote this should be fired it is the worst list ever 2 out of 10 that anyone with a brain could ever sit through one of witch only if you have kids

    12.9.08 at 11:35 am

    SD says:

    Wow, finding a list of 10 chick flicks must have been really hard for you. Gia?? Bound? Shrek?? You must be kidding.

    12.9.08 at 12:52 pm

    avenutolo says:
    Idiot list … Shrek – NOT A CHICK FLICK;
    Out of Sight – NOT A CHICK FLICK!!!!!!
    Knocked Up – NOT A CHICK FLICK. In fact, it was made for GUYS!!!!!!

    12.9.08 at 12:57 pm

    Matt says:
    Worst fucking list on earth. Seriously, take this down, it’s an embarrassment to you and your publication and is currently being ridiculed across the internet.

    12.9.08 at 1:03 pm

    D J E says:
    classifying these movies as chick flicks is a fail… Knocked Up = FAIL!!!! SHREK = EPIC FAIL!!!!

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind kids most of these movies asses if not all.

    Cody says:
    This list sucks, really bad. Most of these aren’t even chick flicks. And half of them would fit better on a “movies to wack off to in 7th grade” list. Fail.

    12.9.08 at 3:28 pm

    Larry says:
    Not to be rude or anything, but NONE of these constitute as a chick flick.

    12.9.08 at 4:07 pm

    Fernando says:
    This list is so inaccurate. Great job!…btw that’s sarcasm

    12.9.08 at 4:16 pm

    dtg says:
    Even the idea of “Chick Flicks” is outdated and moronic.

    12.9.08 at 4:21 pm

    Ross says:
    “Bound” and “Shrek” are NOT chick flicks. In fact, none of these films are good examples of chick flicks. Perhaps the author would do best to study the genre a bit more. In addition, most of these films are not that good.

    12.9.08 at 5:36 pm

    jessie says:
    i’m so thrilled that the vast majority of these comments agree as to the stupidity of this list, and frankly, writer. No chick flicks. all of them suck. except maybe Shrek and Knocked Up. Which are not chick flicks. lol, the comments made reading this article worth it!

    12.9.08 at 6:20 pm

    The Average White Guy says:
    Dude, they all suck – except Knocked Up, which is not a chick flick.

    Ok, to the author of this list. You are a fucking retard. Half these movies aren’t chick flicks. I see top x lists all over the internet, this is by far one of the worst. Go to any social aggregate news site (such as digg) and see how people are tearing this list apart. You should re-evaluate your work Also, you forgot to mention Garden State.

    12.9.08 at 10:50 pm

    Dave says:
    A couple straight-forward action-comedies, an Apatow comedy, a kids movie and a horseshit horror-drama are chick flicks? I do agree with Mean Girls though, that movie is hysterical.

    12.10.08 at 7:45 am

    Television Spy says:
    The Craft, Mean Girls, Clueless and Gia (only for that one lesbian scene). That’s where it ends, knocked up isn’t a chick flick but it’s not a good movie. And Shrek isn’t a chick flick it’s a kids movie.

    12.10.08 at 10:46 am

    Ouimer says:
    Terrible list. More than half of these I wouldn’t even come close to considering “a chick flick”. Judd Apatow making a chick flick? Come on. There is a much better and well rounded list of ACCEPTABLE CHICK FLICKS FOR GUYS here: http://thesegoto11.wordpress.com/2008/12/03/top-eleven-acceptable-chick-flicks-for-guys/

    12.11.08 at 8:33 pm

    Tim says:
    As long as everyone is giving you shit, I’m going to throw in my two cents. Yes, your list sucks, but even worse is the fact that i have to click ten times to see the whole thing.

    12.12.08 at 4:19 pm

    Jessica says:
    I read the title of the page, but where are the chick flicks? I only found pictures of 10 random movies. :P

    As mentioned above, I am not sure if some of these movies can be considered as chick flicks. but yeah…love and basketball was a sweet film.
