Not all "chick flicks" suck -- post some that don't
Advertisements [?]
One of my favorite movies is "How to Make An American Quilt", the ultimate chick flick.

But even though it's 100% a "women's movie", it's the exact opposite of romantic - it's about how women live with and accept or don't accept the results of the choices they make - it basically says "honey, there's no happily ever after, just ever after". Men aren't demonized, but they're sure as hell not portrayed as "saviors" - just as potential partners on the road through life (and maybe as diversions...)

I went with 4 long-time girlfriends, all women with high-powered careers (well, except me) and we were all sobbing at the end. And none of us cry at movies. It is just a beautiful picture about being female.
