My Top 10 Chick Flick

Everyone needs a cry or two sometimes. As we grow up, work and life gets the best of you and sucked out pretty much every dose of emotions you have. No? Maybe it's just me.

One way for a good cry is to watch chick flick. Leave your boyfriend or spouse somewhere, anywhere and grab yourself a movie! Chick flick is primarily made ONLY for women, though it doesn't hurt to bring women-alike along, haha. Come to think of it, if your spouse needs any sort of "punishment", get him to watch these genre of movie. Hahaha!

Last night my girlfriend and I were having a movie marathon. One of the movies that we watched was A Letter for Juliet. I wouldn't say that this is the best among all, but I think this is one feel-good movie to watch with your girlfriends along with nice popcorn and dessert. Oooh, kleenex included! Not gonna give out much spoilers or description on this since this just hits the theater lately.

In conjunction of the movie above, I here to present to you my top 10 favorite chick flick of all time. These are the list of movies that I've cried to and pretty much gave me a lot of goosebumps and butterflies...

Serendipity - Put a coy, soft spoken British girl and a wise cracking, witty New Yorker and BOOM, you'll get Serendipity. There is something about John Cusack that makes an excellent candidate for a male chick flick. Probably his funny and charismatic personality that makes me melt like butter. Winter, hot chocolate and New York - what a delicious way to find love. And I got to applaud the soothing numbers of the movie's soundtrack.

While You Were Sleeping - I love watching any movies with Sandra Bullock in it. One of my all time favorite and I named the title after my comic novel. Note to Malaysian: Do you guys remember the Fair & Lovely commercial where a guy met this receptionist girl and he didn't noticed her cos she's erm, dark and dull? I think that scene was taken from this movie.

The Notebook - This movie is based from a novel written by the hopeless romantic Nicholas Spark. I think this guy (Mr Spark) is like a lady trapped in a man's body. He wrote the most heart wrenching stories including Message in a Bottle. I wonder if he's a romantic guy in real life?

My Sassy Girl - Unlike the movie above that was an adaptation of a book, this movie is an Americanize version of a Korean comedy romance. I love the element of surprise in the movie, the surrealistic shots and definitely the romance. Love it!

Only You - The romantic side of the Iron Man. This is one movie that made me to ga-ga on Robert Downey Jr. Robbie was still young and fresh this time! And they could not find any location better than the lovely Venice. *drool* I think Marisa Tomei is cute, but her 80's short hair really does look masculine much like the leading man. LOL!

A Walk to Remember - I never thought Mandy Moore was a good actor until I watched this nine years ago. I used to watched this in my college dorm, at night, with the light off and just bawl over this. Bad boy meets innocent and tacky girl - what is there not to love?

Kate & Leopold - Nothing could go wrong when you have the two most adorable duo like Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman. Hugh Jackman plays in a romantic comedy? Who knew? The story of a modern, career woman and a fine, dashing gentlemen from the past!

P.S. I Love You - Two most toughest actors Gerard Butler and Hillary Swank show their soft side in this romantic comedy. I thought that this movie is a bit anti-climax, but it's enough to shed tears of any women whose watching this.

Breakfast at Tiffany's - The classic never dies in this old movie played by the most stunning, Audrey Hepburn and the blue eyed gorgeous, George Peppard. The song "Moon River" was made particularly for this movie. My favorite moment,
Paul: I love you.
Holly: So what.
Paul: So what? So plenty! I love you, you belong to me!
Holly: No. People don't belong to people.
Paul: Of course they do!
Holly: I'll never let anybody put me in a cage.
Paul: I don't want to put you in a cage, I want to love you!

13 Going on 30 - This movie doesn't really digs you in to the soppy side, very much like a tidbits of everything. Like a Neapolitan ice cream! Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo made a good pair in this movie. I can't really pin point what makes Mark Ruffalo such a good candidate for this genre. His blurry signature personality? The way he talk/mumble? Also look out for him in "Just Like Heaven" along with the incredible Reese Witherspoon.

That's it? So...chick flick anyone?
