Why Guys Should Watch Chick Flicks

Besides building up good will with the women in your life it gives you a chance to study.

That girl that you want to date\marry\sleep with has a man in her head. That man is a compost picture of all of those movies you have refused to watch. The mannerism, the excitment, the look, the talk, the quirks, the jokes..its all there for you.

Watch ten of them. Compare yourself to him. What is one thing you can take from each of these movies and add to your game? Watch 10 of these and take one from each and your batting average will go up by .300!

Here is a brief list of some of my favorites to get you started.

- Brief Encounter

- Love Actually

- Bridget Jones Diary

- Somethings Gotta Give

- Sweet Home Alabama

- Breakfast at Tiffany's

- 50 First Dates

- Casablanca

- Notorious

- The English Patient

How does it work with the women who know that the men in these movies are really just caricatures and not real. Don't they see through the act?

I can't do it, glad I'm happily married.

Never underestimate the power of denial and a woman's inner wish to believe in the fairytale.

Well, has it worked for you so far? Have you transformed yourself into Prince Charming?

Brian in Mpls said...

No, not even close.

I don't want to be prince charming and I don't want to date a woman who needs prince charming.

This strategy is more for people who are looking for STR or one night stands. I am way past that point in my life which is why I am telling my man secrets.

Hopefully it will cause a light to go off in peoples heads cause them to examine what they are looking for and why...then maybe when it is all based on some thing real, something can have a chance.

Otherwise you are staring at a mirage that will never come.

Fair advice.. does it work the other way around? Should I start watching those shoot-em-up movies and turn into those women?

Brian in Mpls said...

Ironically it does...You turn into Lara Croft and see what happens you will have a wait list.

scargosun said...'s not really a chick flik but add "The African Queen" to your list.

I love chick flicks, my favoritist types of movies. Interestingly though, none of the ones you listed are among my favorite. Some of my favs, just so ya know, lol.

1. Under the Tuscan Sun
2. Must Love Dogs
3. 13 Going on 30
4. Better off Dead (sort of a chick flick, but I think a generally loved 80s movie)
5. Finding Neverland
6. Elizabethtown
7. Because I Said So
8. Breakfast Club (oh wait, maybe that's just a really good movie and not necessarily a chick flick)

Damn wanted to give you 10 but now I'm drawing a blank.

I can attest to the Lara Croft comment. Seriously, if you watch enough guy movies and porn, you will be every man's dream girl. If that's what you want LOL. But that's not exactly going to make him want you to bear his children.
