5 of My Favorite Chick Flicks

5 of My Favorite Chick Flicks

Anyone who knows me, knows I love me some chick flicks. Here are a few ones that are special to me, as usual in no particular order.

  1. Jerry Maguire                                                                                                                                 Insert your own “You had me at…” joke here. I’ve seen this several times and it never fails to elicit a tear or two. I’m always down for a Cameron Crowe fest.
      2.  Untamed Heart
 Haven’t seen it since I was like 15, but it totally gutted me then. I was in love with Marissa Tomei        
and thought Christian Slater was the bossest.

3. Terminator
Say what? Chick flick? Say what you will, but Terminator is, at its core, a romance (and a pretty sappy one at that.) A few quotes from the movie:  “I traveled through time for you Sarah.”  “He gave me a picture of you once. I was never sure why. I memorized every curve, every line.” “We only knew each other for a brief time, but in those few hours, we loved a lifetime.” “You’re terminated fucker!” Oh well, 3 outta 4 ain’t bad.
*excuse the paraphrases. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen it and I’m too lazy to actually look the quotes up.

4. Somewhere in Time.

This early 80’s romance starred Christopher Reeve amd Jane Seymour. Like Terminator it also involved time travel, theme perhaps? I 10 or 11 when I 1st saw it on home video. I only watched it cuz it had Superman in it, but ended up loving it.

  1. Going the Distance.
Too early to really say how it will stick, but I really enjoyed this movie. My favorite romcom of the year for sure.


  1. You had me at 1 & 5 but lost me somewhere in between.

  2. i figured you'd like Somewhere in Time and Untamed Heart.
