Anne's Top 5 Chick Flicks

Currently there is a trend sweeping through the gaming community. People everywhere are listing Top Ten Movies in the monster genre. Well I thought I'd get in on the fun, but in my own unique way. Today I'm listing my top five favourite Chick Flicks.

Many of you men have always assumed these movies were for you. Well they're not. They are all Chick Flicks disguised as macho male movies.


Number 5 James Bond


James Bond. Hollywood began early in it's efforts to delude men by bringing 007 onto the big screen.  Yes, they threw in some scantily clad women for you, but no one gets more screen time than the always sexy James Bond.  

Number 4 Wolverine

Yes, men think this movie is for them and we women allow them to because by doing so we get what we really want. Hugh Jackman. Now if this movie was for men, they'd have picked someone like Nick Nolte to play the lead.
Number 3 Iron Man

Yes another movie based on a comic book hero from you men's childhood. The comic may have been for you, but the movies are for us. Robert Downey Jr. is dead sexy no matter what film he's in. This fact alone qualifies Iron Man for Chick Flick status.

Number 2 Thor

Chris Hemsworth. Chris Hemsworth in that sexy costume, Chris Hemsworth sweating, Chris Hemsworth without a shirt. Need I say more? No, this is a chick flick.

Number 1 300

Men around the world were deluded into thinking this movie was for them.  What gave them that idea, I will never know. Just look at this for Christ's sake. How could this not be a chick flick. Jaysus there's 300 half dressed, sexy men sweating on a really big screen. 


Did I mention that Gerard Butler plays the lead role?  Clearly God loved women on the day he created this man, making 300 the best Chick Flick in the history of film.

So next time your woman goes to the cinema to see an action film with you ask yourselves this question. "Do women find the lead actor sexy and does he take his shirt off?" If the answer is yes, you just might be going to see a Chick Flick.

This post is part of the belated celebration of my blogs second birthday, which will continue throughout the weekend. And truly these posts are designed to make me smile, so if you don't want to comment or read them, I will not be offended.

  1. I think you've now made it much easier for men everywhere to get their women to see action movies. I think a lot of them weren't aware of this. It's actually impossible to debate your logic on why these are actually chick flicks (especially Wolverine, I mean, look at the guy) so I won't even try.

    1. I'm right and I know it. What genius though for Hollywood to full millions and millions of men for so many years.

  2. You're right! What man enjoyed watching three hundred half-naked men on the screen?
    Well, if your reasoning applies, then the Underworld films with Kate are definitely dude films.
    And yes, my wife will watch any film with Jackman.

    1. Loads of men loved 300 and they truly believed all that fighting and action was what the movie was about. I saw the movie and if there was a plot I don't remember it, but I remember those men.

  3. Should change the title to "What men aspire to and what women crave!" Thanks Anne, now you have twisted my perception of these movies, now I need therapy!

    1. I was slightly concerned that some men might feel a little "weird" after seeing this from my perspective.

  4. Michael Fass My Benders is also in 300, dear :) and Dominic West too :)
    I support Huge Jackman and Chris Hunksworth, and the only one I don't get is Robert Junkie Junior....

    1. We like Michael and Dominic as well. But it is Gerard that I would follow into hell:)

    2. methinks you will like Sullivan Stapleton in 300 RISE OF AN EMPIRE as well :)

  5. If it's a good film it should work for everyone on some level. I have no problem of women lusting after men, I am happy for them to look at the menu but you can't beat home cooked!

    1. The Hubby doesn't mind if I lust after these men. His attitude is "You'll never get any of them, so knock yourself out."

  6. A friend of mine said something similar about Troy - she thought it was a chick flick because it has Brad Pitt wearing a skirt. Apparently.

    1. See how you've been fooled all these years. It's a great money making scheme as these movies fill the theatre with deluded men and happy women.

  7. I think you just proved that Titanic is a movie for men. That would, ultimately, explain it's raging success since it's statistically proven that it's men that are the repeat movie goers.

    1. Titanic is definitely for men. Leonardo DiCaprio is stone ugly.

  8. 300!! Yeah, I've watched it a few times. Have no idea what it's about. I just watch with the sound off. :P

    1. I bought it on DVD and have worn the thing out and I still don't know what it's about:)

    2. I'm shocked you two ladies haven't watched SPARTACUS show for the same reason :)

  10. I'm a bit surprised as I thought those were guy favs - for the action of course. I can see why women would like the leads though. Best, Dean

    1. The action is just there to distract you from the sight of our drooling.

  11. The only reason the chaps have to take their tops of Anne, is so you girlies will go to the cinema with your hubbies! And how the hell did you get that pic (2nd to last) of me, Fran and the rest of the Rejects??

    1. You'd be surprised at the file of racy pics I have of you guys stored on my hard drive:)

  12. Call them what you like, if I can get the wife to go with me to see an action movie I don't care if its a chick flick or not. Although I was a bit dismayed when someone said that one of my favorite movies is a chick flick, it doesn't fit in with your shirtless requirement.

    1. If you mean Titanic, it's not a chick flick. You're completely safe taking your wife to that one.

  13. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) and happy blog birthday... ;-)

    By the way...are you ready for the Neapolitan Painting Challeng, also known as the "the Blonde, the Redhair and the Brunette contest"? :-p

  14. Brilliant! But if these fine pieces of celluloid mastery are indeed chick flicks, then why is it that us chaps often hear, 'what's going on?' throughout the movie. :D

    1. You mean there's a plot to these movies?

  15. Great post; made me smile on a hectic Friday afternoon.

    Happy Labor Day!

  16. I think Michael's comment proves you're right Anne.. women say 'what's going on?' because they're too distracted by the eye candy and their own internal thoughts about what they're seeing. Plot is rarely a concern for porn. Yep. Mystery Solved.

    1. The plot is for you guys, we don't need it. I still don't know what 300 is about, but I can't get the memory of that film out of my mind:)

  17. (Waves hand from the back of the blogosphere) Ohh! I have one for you, Anne. I loved the historical spectacle of movie "Troy" and my wife and daughter loved it for Brad Pitt's bare and oiled bum!

    1. Hahahaha. Well at least you know. The Hubby still tells me he buys Playboy to read the articles. I pretend to believe him:)

      Dammit, I will miss your blog when it rests, Anne.

  18. Hahaha. Way to ruin every man's echo and false macho pride. Thanks Anne, you are a true feminist with a twist.
    to my kids' father watching sports made him an athlete, and amusement park rides a daredevil and these movies a handsome hunk and a irrestible ladies man, if you give him the truth this raw and pop his bubble he will prepare his bucket list right away.

    Excellent picks by the way.

    1. I think it's best to just keep men in the dark. Allowing them to think is just plain dangerous!

  19. Damn, look at you go at your show. Now women everywhere will watch these films, works for me. And if you liked 300, you'll surely love Spartacus, they show more.

    1. Women everywhere do watch these films. We even meet in secret societies in the dark of night to talk about them.

  20. You mean that all my DVDs that I have, that the wife asked my to get are really Chick Flicks? Gosh well I never, but now the secrets out, lol. I love reading your posts Anne

    1. Certainly are and the really clever thing is that she gets you to think she's buying them for you. Thus earning her bonus points she can cash in later at the mall.

  22. Nailed it, Anne. I still remember the girlfriend "suggesting" we go see Dune in the theaters. Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen played by Sting in a thong was the only thing she was going for. Nothing I liked better as an insecure 18 year old than having to compete with fantasies about a Tantric sex fanatic.

    Hell, I'm not sure I like the idea any better at 47. :)

    1. Oooh I remember Sting in that movies. That's the only thing I do remember about it. Don't fight it Rich, just go with it. She may be dreaming about Sting, but it's you getting all the loving:)

      Delete
    2. Ah, no. That one was many a year ago, and not a pleasant breakup when it ended. Whether she's still dreaming of Sting I don't know, but we certainly give each other nightmares these days.

      Thankfully, the current lady-love's sole comment regarding Sting's exhibitionism in that film was that he was really much too skinny, which I find heartening if somewhat implausible.

  23. Love your thinking, it seems to be fool proof,

  24. Now I can't stop imagining Nick Nolte as a grizzled old Wolverine. I think you're onto something. What was once thought of as a dick flick has been reborn as chick flick. Brilliant.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I almost thought it was a list of attractive guys.. but then you got to 300 and that's definitely a movie, so I was deeply mistaken. Really though, I had no idea I watched so many chick flicks.

    Happy blogbirthday!
