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.

Sex And The City Is Going To Do Just Fine

Some people are wondering whether the Sex and the City movie will be a blockbuster since most summer movies appeal to guys, and there really haven’t been any female-focused rated R movies of this scale. But I have reason to believe that the movie is going to be a success. Two weeks ago, I told all of my friends I was going to buy tickets to Sex and the City for opening night. I was very concerned it was going to sell out and didn’t want to miss the hysteria that will certainly take over theaters on Friday. Then I got busy and forgot to actually purchase them, and now, from what I can tell, the freaking movie is sold out in every theater in New York. I have no idea how this is possible, but now my friends hate me (if you have extra tickets, let me know!), however, I don’t think I’m alone in my predicament. “We can’t remember the last time a movie has created so much anticipation among female moviegoers from their 20s through their 40s,” said Harry Medved, a spokesman for Fandango. Harry said they’re getting a lot of group ticket sales, and 67 percent of those surveyed by the site said they were planning to go in a group of women. Only 6 percent said they were going with a man. I think that all the men who are being dragged along should give their tickets to people who actually want to go, and then everyone will be happy. [AP] Keep reading »
