Chick Flicks

May 27, 2008

I am married to a man who loves the great outdoors. He loves to fish, hunt, kayak and camp. Every year, he takes a trip or two to be with the guys and do manly men things. He always invites me, however, until he figures out a way for me to have a flush toilet and internet connection, I am perfectly content to stay home. While he is gone, I go on a chick flick movie binge. Every year, my movie collection gets a bit bigger. 

My fav chick flicks: 

*Hope Floats (I'm on my 3rd copy! The soundtrack is great, too.)
*A Walk to Remember (I rented it during one of his hunting trips and loved it so much, I ran out to buy it and watched it two more times that week.)

*Titanic (I still hold my breath hoping Titanic will miss the ice burg. I still don't get why Jack didn't find something to float on. What's up with that??!!)

*8 Below (The first time Russ and I saw this one in the theater, we sobbed and sobbed...Great movie!)
*Fly Away Home

*The Last Sin Eater

*Pride and Prejudice (My latest addition. Mr. Darcy...Oh, sigh!)

Please share your list of favorite chick flicks. I know I am missing some really great ones! 

I also treat myself to a large Canadian bacon and green pepper pizza from Zoey's, the BEST pizza in town. Yummy!! 

Oh, honey!!! Is it hunting season yet?? 


  1. I haven't seen some of the ones you mentioned and will have to check them out. Thanks!

  2. Hope Floats is one of my very faves also, and I own the soundtrack, too!!

    Also like (enough to own): While You Were Sleeping, My Best Friend's Wedding, and Runaway Bride (another good soundtrack).

    I'd only watch Titanic or 8 Below if I need to cry. . . I agree that Jack should've found something that floated!

    And I've been wanting to see The Last Sin Eater, so I'm gonna get that one based on your recommendation.

    Good post!

    I watch movie after movie when the guys are gone. I can't think of too many right now, but The Lake House came to mind. I have several that I keep in "my" closet. :D

  4. Nolan got me Fly Away Home last year, cause I love it so much. I also love "I am Sam" ...... one of my faves.

  5. I love Hope Floats, too, as I think I've shared with you before.

    Fly Away Home is another of my favorites!

    I haven't seen it in years, but I also liked A Walk to Remember.

    Though I loved Titanic, I've never had a desire to watch it a second time, though Hubby enjoys watching it over again. Go figure! ;-)

    Pride & Prejudice rates up there as one of my all time faves.

    Have you ever seen Sense & Sensibility, with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslett? I LOVE that movie! I've seen it so many times I've lost count. It's one (like P&P) that I could sit down at any time, in any part of the film, and begin watching it. If you haven't seen it, DO go and rent it, Amy!

    Oh, and I love My Best Friend's Wedding, too!
