Ten Chick Flicks For Guys

Mean Girls MovieYou can run but you can’t hide because at some point you will be forced to watch a chick flick movie. Yet as someone that has been forced to watch a lot of these movies, I am happy to tell you that there are some great chick flicks for guys that even the manliest of men can sit back and enjoy.

Anyone in a relationship is bound to be sucked by the dreaded chick flick. We have all been there and we have all paid the price, but not all chick flicks are created equal. Quite frankly some are not only good, but some are great!

I am here to help you navigate through this painful process with several chick flicks for guys that will ease the pain of giving in to that dreaded compromise. While she’ll think you are compromising on the movie choice, you have actually outsmarted her with a movie you would want to see anyway. It is a win-win for the both of you!

[adinserter block=”2″]Just remember, watching a chick flick can be a lot of fun…just don’t admit it the next time you are sitting around the poker table.

Mean Girls – Here is a movie I never would have watched if it wasn’t for my wife. Yet I will gladly admit that I was hooked the first time I watched it. Mean Girls plays about 50 times a year on TBS and I think we get sucked in to ten of those showings. The girls are hot, the movie is written by Tina Fey who has made you laugh many times on Saturday Night Live, and it is just very funny. But a word of caution, avoid Mean Girls 2 like the plague.

P.S. I Love You – I held out for months on this one just for the title alone. I mean, c’mon really? But I finally gave in and this was just fantastic. Gerard Butler can be a little over the top for me in this one, but Hilary Swank really levels everything out and is just tremendous in her role. Who knows, it may even grab a tear or two before it is over.

Grease – The funny thing about Grease is that I know more guys that are into this movie than women when at the end of the day, it is a musical! This movie has it all from the bravado, the cars, and Olivia Newton John is smoking (literally) in this one. Just be careful not to tap your feet and give away the fact that she is actually the one compromising on this chick flick.

The Breakfast Club – An outright classic right here is The Breakfast Club. This is about as guy-friendly chick flick as you are ever going to find. The funny thing is that I don’t even know if guys realize that this is actually a chick flick when in fact…it is. This is a John Hughes masterpiece featuring all of your favorite Brat Packers from the 1980s.

Titanic – This one really tests the boundaries of the man card but quite honestly, how can I run down a guy-friendly movie list without the Titanic? Hey, if any of your guy friends questions you just tell them you are interested in bio-pics. Not to mention, Kate Winslet’s topless scene kind of levels out any questions of the man card in this blogger’s opinion.

Say Anything – How could I go through a list of great chick flicks and leave John Cusack off of it? I can’t. Cusack has a nice filmography of several eligible candidates for this one but this was my favorite of all. The scene of Lloyd Dobler holding up the boom box has turned into one of the most iconic movie scenes of my generation for a reason. Cameron Crowe directed this one which features a great cast and even better story.

Fever Pitch – Okay listen, I may be the only one in the world that liked this movie but I thought it was great. Any guy with a passion for sports can relate to Ben and his passion for the Red Sox. As a matter of a fact, your significant other will probably have a better understanding the next time you tell her you can’t make that function because the playoffs are on. Trick her into watching this one and your relationship will improve the next time you have one of those “conversations.”

The Wedding Singer – At the risk of alienating most of my male readers, I will admit that I am not a big Adam Sandler fan. But I am a fan of Styx and the 1980s! This was much better than I thought it would be and a chick flick you will be forced to watch at some point. You know the story, guy has crush on girl, girl is with a jerk, etc, etc. We have all been there, it is relatable, the jokes are really funny, and Adam Sandler is arguably at his best.

[adinserter block=”1″]The Notebook – How could I not? Look I get it, this isn’t something that anyone wants to admit to enjoying but I do. It is a great story, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams have great chemistry, and you will be forced to watch at some point anyway. Go into it with an open mind and you will be surprised at how much you like this movie.

The Notebook DVD

The Princess Bride – Like P.S. I Love You, I avoided this movie for years on the title alone. Even Andre the Giant couldn’t get me to look past the title. Unfortunately or fortunately my wife loves this movie so after years of avoiding this movie, I gave it and guess what? I loved it! It was very funny, Mandy Patinkin is just hilarious, and it tells a great story. Just think of Shrek (which almost made the list), but a lot funnier and you have The Princess Bride.

  1. I don't know why people go on so much about The Notebook. If you want to watch The Notebook, watch Two Moon Junction instead. It's the same story, but a lot better movie.
    Of three other movies on this list that I saw, Grease was fairly good, I guess, although I can't remember much about it. You should read A Night To Remember, with or without watching Titanic. I saw The Wedding Singer and didn't think that much about it.

  2. This is a decent list. I would have hoped for some good obscure one though. So I'll add some of my own:
    – Happy Accidents – Time Travel, cursing, and the Edgar suit from MIB
    – Better Off Dead – I think this is a John Cusack movie that is more accessible to guys, '80s but not overdone.
    – Crazy, Stupid, Love – This was a new one that thoroughly enjoyable, who knew Steve Carrel could be as adorable as Ryan Gosling??

    You all should give these a watch,

  3. "Love Actually" is one of the funniest chick flick out there. It has great scenes, perfect continuity and they even throw in a few nude scenes. I'm a guy and this movie is awesome. Its my only chick flick in my dvd collection. Go see it….. trust me.

  4. I'm a girl and I think most of the films on this list are kinda on the sucky/cheesy side.
    I might watch them with my girlfriends in a 'guilty pleasure' way but no way would I inflict viewership on my boif.
    Except Princess Bride, not a chick flick it's just great.

  5. I'm with you on The Princess Bride, The Wedding Singer and The Breakfast Club. Say Anthing is okay, but you lost me on the rest of the list. Titanic is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I had to watch it in the theater, and tried to take a nap in order to make it go by faster.

  6. Wow, this list stormed off the rails fast. It's now recommended that you eat some type of Porterhouse steak, possibly covered in bleu cheese, bacon, or mushrooms and watch one or more of these movies: Rambo, First Blood, Die Hard (With a Vengeance or Live Free or the original, screw the airport one), Conan The Barbarian, Reservoir Dogs, Point Break, Casino, Fast and The Furious, Training Day, or Wild Things. Wash down with Schlitz and sleep it off.

    Seriously, though, Mean Girls is great, which reminds me that I haven't seen it since seeing it in theaters.

  7. Good list, and I am a female. LOL Titanic is one of my favorite films. Great film, and it is accurate also. The only thing on there that is NOT true is the romance stuff with Jack (DiCaprio) and Rose (Winslet).
