First Look: “White People Embracing”

Just kidding, it's not a new movie, it's every Nicholas Spark book-turned-film ever. Which is your favorite? I like the one about the white heterosexual couple who is so in love but then they're torn apart. You know, the one where they find their way back to each other -- I love that awesome scene…

Work Lessons We Can Learn From Chick Flicks

You can learn a lot from chick flicks. According to our friends at Flavorwire, there's a little nugget of knowledge in even some of the most mundane and fluffy chick movies.

Are Chick Flicks Misogynist?

According to our buddies over at Cracked, some chick flicks secretly hate women. Who'd've thunk it? After reading the list, we'd have to agree.

It's easy to trash chick flicks, like Marisa Meltzer did this week at The Daily Beast. They set false expectations for women. The actresses are capable of more serious work. Blah blah blah blah blah.... But formulaic as the genre is known to be, you'll still find us front row at the latest…

Which Chick Flick Character Are You?

Chick flicks are generally the lamest of movies, but we still watch them, making them huge blockbusters and giving them the longest of lifespans on Netflix.

You know what? I know that everyone and their mom is going to hate on the movie version of "He's Just Not That Into You." Maybe there was a reason to hate on the book -- I don't know, I didn't read it -- but this movie looks funny. For starters, I love Ginnifer Goodwi…
