Chick Flick or Comedy?

Television is an invention that permits you to be entertained in your living room by people you wouldn't have in your home. ~David Frost

A quick post because I woke late and still want to try and write a bit.

I caught my DH watching "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" last night and said, "You're watching a chick flick!"

"It's not a chick flick. I don't watch chick flicks. It's a comedy."

"Chick flick," I crowed.

"Comedy," he growled.

(Aside: I love using funky dialogue tags here... because I CAN!)

So, I post the question to you: Despite the fact that MBFGW is certainly funny, do YOU think it qualifies as a chick flick?

Inquiring minds want to know.


New review just came through on Google Alerts (aside: Google Alerts, how I love thee) for "A Change Of Heart".

Five angels from Fallen Angel Reviews, who said (in part):

Get ready to savor every moment of this delightful read. A Change of Heart is a page-turner...Marianne Arkins produces a star-studded read I enjoyed immensely. With realistic characters she allows the players to emit love, jealously, betrayal, and a turn of the heart to make all things flow at their own pace. The reactions and justifications of each of them are brought out in a way that threw the reader into the scenes, making one feel a part of it. Heartwarming and wonderfully spun, this story packs a wallop of an exciting tale.



And, now... I'm off to write more for JaNoWriMo. I do believe a super-soaker will be involved in the next scene.

That's a great review.

I never saw MBFGW and I bet it's because I thought it was a chick flick.

Chick flick, definitely. Sure it's funny, but c.f. all the way. BTW, my DH likes the movie too. I'm sure he wouldn't call it a chick flick either. The lengths they'll go to to protect their precious masculinity.

Congrats on the review! You rock!

And have a good writing day!

Definately CF !! I loved it, but it was a chick flick.

Congrats on the review. You deserve it. You work so hard on your writing.

Hmm, I disagree with the majority here. Less of a chick flick and more of a comedy.

I've never seen MBFGW, but I was under the impression it was a chick flick. :)

Diane Craver said...

Congrats on the review. I saw the movie and think of it as a chick flick.

Brandy said...

Um, it can't be both? I say more comedy than Chic Flick and it's one of my family's favorites. *G*

Amy said...

Apologies to the husband, but MBFGW is definitely a chick flick.
