We See Chick Flicks: “Confessions Of A Shopaholic”

Starring Isla Fisher, Hugh Dancy, Krysten Ritter

Based on the series of chick lit books by Sophie Kinsella, “Confessions Of A Shopaholic,” is the story of adorable, but bumbling “journalist,” Rebecca Bloomwood, who has a serious shopping addiction that has left her in major debt. This movie, as we’ve noted, hit theaters at a seriously awkward time — WE’RE IN A RECESSION, ZOMG! Hardly the most appropriate time for a film about a woman who has a romantic attachment to stores and the wares they sell. Maybe the producers hoped the movie would be “relatable” to the millions of Americans who are having rough times themselves. After all, Rebecca’s credit cards are declined! Rebecca is being stalked by debt collectors! Rebecca cannot afford her rent! It’s just too bad that the account cancellation notices paving Rebecca’s yellow brick road of woe lead back to Bloomingdale’s. Keep reading »

We See Chick Flicks: “He’s Just Not That Into You”

Starring Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connelly, Kevin Connolly, Bradley Cooper, Ginnifer Goodwin, Scarlett Johansson, Justin Long

When God created chick flicks, she/he had this one in mind as the epitome, the end all, be all of chick flicks. Not one straight man on the planet will see this film willingly, and those women who do, should walk in with a healthy dose of skepticism. After all, the movie is based on a self-help book of the same name, which has been ripped apart for its stereotyping of women. Plus, it wasn’t clear to me how in the hell it would translate into a film. That said, it was produced by Drew Barrymore’ Flower Films — which also put out the fluffy gem “Never Been Kissed” — and also stars Barrymore alongside Frisky faves Ginnifer Goodwin and Jennifer Connelly. Additionally, having been a crazy lady in the boy department many times myself, I went into the movie believing that there was nothing wrong with looking crazy moments like those in the face and laughing about how young and stupid we’ve all been. In that sense, “He’s Just Not That Into You” didn’t disappoint. Keep reading »

We See Chick Flicks: Bride Wars

Starring Anne Hathaway, Kate Hudson

Against my better judgment, and the groans of many, many people I respect and whom I want to respect me, I saw “Bride Wars” on Sunday afternoon. [With me! What? I'm not ashamed. -- Editor] Everyone who has seen the trailer and or merely read the title knows exactly what this movie is about. Trust that it goes no deeper than that.

Poll: What Was Your Favorite “Chick Flick” Of 2008?

I’m having a chick flick kind of weekend. So far I’ve watched “Definitely, Maybe,” “Rachel Getting Married,” and, now, “27 Dresses.” It got me thinking about all of the chick flicks we reviewed this year. So… Keep reading »

We See Chick Flicks: Cadillac Records

Starring Adrien Brody, Jeffrey Wright, Gabrielle Union, Columbus Short, Cedric the Entertainer, Mos Def, Beyonce Knowles

I took myself on a date yesterday to see “Cadillac Records” because I’m a history buff and love a biopic. Plus, I get fashion inspiration by seeing how people dressed in the past. I read very few reviews of the film before watching it because I wanted the movie to speak for itself. I was rather entertained, but, since I’m not a real blues fan or scholar, I didn’t notice the historical inaccuracies. Keep reading »

We See Chick Flicks: Four Christmases

Starring Reese Witherspoon, Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, Sissy Spacek, Robert Duvall, Tim McGraw, & Kristen Chenoweth

Let me start by saying that I’m probably not the most biased reviewer, considering I’ve been dying to see this movie since it was cast. In terms of pure movie enjoyment and giggles, Reese Witherspoon is my favorite actress and Vince Vaughn is my favorite actor. Could I have been more excited to find out that they were in a rom-com together? Um, no. As I’d hoped, Reese was perfectly adorable as always and Vince Vaughn, playing himself, per usual, had me almost peeing myself from the beginning. Needless to say, this is the perfect post-Turkey Day movie. Light, fluffy, funny, and, oh hell, heartwarming. Full review after the jump… Keep reading »

We See Chick Flicks: Twilight

The minute my cousin and I realized we both read “Twilight”, we knew we had to make a date to see the movie…a very well planned date so we could get tickets before they sold out. I might be the only person on the planet that thought this, but I couldn’t really envision Robert Pattison as Edward Cullen. He just seemed too scrawny to me. But he proved me wrong! He looked so sexy on screen and had the perfect build to play Edward. I’m sure most of the girls in the theater experienced their first pitter pat down there when he was onscreen. But Pattison wasn’t the only eye candy to be had during “Twilight.” I liked Emmett Cullen’s (Kellan Lutz) hip hop, jock swagger. And Jacob Black’s (Taylor Lautner) boyish looks were dreamy.

Five Reasons To Skip Seeing “Quantum Of Solace” In Theaters

We were big ol’ fans of “Casino Royale,” the last Bond flick, and the first starring the delectable Daniel Craig, another Frisky favorite. So when “Quantum of Solace” came out this weekend, we were extremely excited to see if their action-packed “boys” film would rock our chick flick hearts the way “Casino Royale” did. Sadly, it FAILED. After the jump, five reasons why you should save it for your Netflix queue. Keep reading »

We See Chick Flicks: Zack And Miri Make A Porno

Starring Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks, Justin Long
Directed by Kevin Smith

Last night I got to see the much-talked-about movie “Zack and Miri Make a Porno” as part of the CMJ Film Festival. Quite honestly, I was not impressed. Maybe it’s because there has been so much media attention surrounding the movie because of its title and the banning of certain posters. Or maybe my sense of humor just doesn’t mesh well with writer/director Kevin Smith’s. Either way, I thought the story was a big cliche, and Seth Rogen really didn’t need to say “f&*k” so many times without reason. Keep reading »

We See Chick Flicks: Nick And Norah’s Infinite Playlist

I decided to see “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” because even though “Rachel Getting Married” looked good, I knew I couldn’t handle a movie with so many ups and downs on a Friday night. I dragged two friends to the not-so-highly acclaimed movie, which Fandango classifies as “teen movie” and “comedy,” and I was nervous they would kill me when it was horrible. But the entire theater, including me and my friends, laughed and cheered through the entire film.
