Celebrity Commitment Symbols: Not Your Average Diamonds

Who needs gold, platinum and silver, when you can have blood, tats and locks? Today’s celebs are anything but traditional when it comes to expressing their love and “commitment” to each other. Rings are just too boooring for these celebs.

We See Chick Flicks: Not-To-Miss DVDs During Summer Blockbuster Season

Summer blockbusters like Hancock (gag!) and The Dark Knight (okay, I’ll see that one) have left little room for my beloved chick flicks, with nary a Dermot Mulroney film or Nora Ephron script in sight.

The Lowdown: Okay, so I am not sure if 21 totally qualifies as a “chick flick,” but it’s got most of the variables: Kate Bosworth + hot up-and-comer Jim Sturgess + one somewhat tame, but still sexy love scene=good enough…

We See Chick Flicks: Definitely, Maybe

DEFINITELY, MAYBE
Starring Ryan Reynolds, Abigail Breslin, Isla Fisher
The Lowdown: Ryan Reynolds stars as a recently separated father, who gets suckered into telling his daughter (Little Miss Sunshine’s Abigail Breslin) the twisted tale of how he met her mother in the form of a bedtime story. “Gag!” may be your first reaction, but give…

We See Chick Flicks: Juno, Atonement, and P.S. I Love You
