    I have seen most of the movies on the top 30 list and liked most of them.

    Does that make me a girly man? Maybe, but some of the chick flicks also have some nice T&A. OK, now I'm back in the manly man column. :D

    However I also like the musicals - Paint Your Wagon, Cats, Phantom, Music Man, etc. Does that make me a manly girly man? I'm soooo confused! :confused:

    Movies I liked from that top 30 list:

    Bridget Jones' Diary
    Sleepless In Seattle (I loved that movie at 12-13)

    I don't get it. Where the hell is the 'manly man' law that states that men must not have emotions to be tough?

    Most men I know without emotions aren't 'tough', they're buttholes, and what's funny is that these same type of 'tough' guys are the kinds in gangs who rat each other out if their found out.

    Real toughness isn't being an ass and having a lack of emotions. Real toughness means doing the type of things that people would laugh at you for.

    I carry around a pink laptop everywhere. Yeah you heard me, Pink. You know what? I'm not gay, and I don't care what anyone says. My laptop gives me 3g internet anywhere, and I couldn't care less how I look in public.

    With this said, pink isn't exactly a color that goes with my stuff, black would make a better laptop color, but color, or how men feel, ain't important to me. It's all about the usefulness. It was the last model in the store and I didn't mind it.

    It's funny isn't it? Macho guys try to say emotions are bad, colors, etc, when they are simply worried about how other men view them. Doesn't that make you closer to being gay then not caring about how MEN feel about you?

    All these macho guys are afraid to show emotion or have pink things because other MEN will view them wrong. They aren't worried at all about how women perceive them, their only fear is how their macho male friends will view them. Personally I wonder how many of them need to come out of the closet, because I don't care what men say about my pink laptop, and I hit on hot ladies any chance I get.

    In case you thought I was pretending... That IS my laptop, and I've already had nitwits bash me.

    Whats funny is that gay men don't like pink either. It's not exactly a color that looks good on a man. It's only bashed by insecure guys.

    And considering the 10 gigs of naked ladies I have the laptop, I can't see how a color would make me gay.... But again, I don't get why people get upset. Colors and emotions don't make you straight or gay.

    Los Gatos,...
    I've seen every movie on that list made after 1960. I have a wife and 2 daughters (24 and 15) so I see all the 'chick flicks'. I actually like most of them. Most of these films show how messed up people generally are in relationships. It's nice to talk with the girls about what's going on in the movie, what would be a better way too handle it, etc. Most often they just tell me to shut up.:bonk1:

    You ought to check out Paint Your Wagon. It was made in the late 60's IIRC and starred Client Eastwood and Lee Marvin. Eastwood may not be the best singer, but the movie is has some very funny moments and a couple of classic songs.

    Cats is a filming of the stage show, so I'm not sure I would really call it a movie.

    Phantom of the Opera is a movie based on the stage show. If you want to see an excellent stage production of it, it is showing in Las Vegas now. I went to it a year ago. I think it had the best stage production of any live musical show I have seen yet.

    Music Man was remade 4 or 5 years ago. The new version was on Ovation a couple of weeks ago. A bit corny in spots (set about 1915 or so in a small town - Gary Indiana) but still fun.

    I'll watch a "chick flick" movie with the wife from time to time, usually because the chick in said movie is hot. ;) Most of these are typically comedies though. "Serious" type chick flicks I don't care for.

    Off the top of my head I can think of
    1) Ten Things I Hate about You
    2) Legally Blonde
    3) First Wives Club
    4) Romy And Michele's High School Reunion (HUGE fav)
    5) Clueless
    6) Josie and the Pussycats

    and of course the all time #1 chick flick movie that everyone loves.....The Princess Bride

    Most of the movies on that top 100 I've never seen and many I've never heard of.

    On the opposite side of things my wife *loves* action and sci-fi movies along with the screwball comedies (Dodgeball is a particular fav or her's). The more explosions the better. Gotta love her. :D

    I don't know why, but I get a kick out of Clueless. Maybe it's Stacey Dash.

    My wife and I were talking about something related to this, this past weekend... it wasn't about movies but rather about television. I'm not sure, but perhaps there is a big difference between how "chick"-y "chick flicks" are as compared to how "chick"-y "chick television series" are -- because my wife and I watch everything together, and generally don't disagree significantly about our appraisals of television shows. So, for example, my wife puts Desperate Housewives (undoubtedly, a "chick television series") as 4 out of 5, while I'll put it 3 1/2 out of 5, and that's probably the series we disagree about the most. It works both ways, though, because she's a big fan of Syfy series, and science fiction movies in general.
