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…

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…

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…

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…

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 review…

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…

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 Pattiso…

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,…

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…

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 nervou…

We See Chick Flicks: Rachel Getting Married

I’m not gonna lie; part of why I wanted to see this movie is that it had my name in it. I didn’t read much, if anything about it, aside from seeing the poster, so I will tell you right off what I didn’t know until the film started: this is not really a chick…

We See Chick Flicks: The Duchess

My weekend ended on a depressing note last night because I went to see “The Duchess.” While the costumes and scenery were certainly amazing, the story put me in a very gloomy mood — and made me thank my lucky stars I didn’t live in the 18th century, when women were second-class citize…

We See Chick Flicks: My Best Friend’s Girl

Starring Kate Hudson, Dane Cook, Jason Biggs, Alec Baldwin
While the film “My Best Friend’s Girl” could be easily classified as a typical rom-com judging by the misleading commercials and cheesy poster, its filth factor actually pushes it into the “gross humor” category. And that is what made me love it even more. I cracked…

We See Chick Flicks: Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Starring Rebecca Hall, Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem
Written and Directed by Woody Allen

Woody Allen is a hit or miss type of genius – critics loved Annie Hall and Match Point, but hated Cassandra’s Dream and Melinda and Melinda. His movies either blow your mind or make you feel like you’ve…

We See Chick Flicks: The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants 2

When I went to the theater last night to see the second installment of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, I expected the movie to warm my heart and make me wish I was young again, with a close group of attractive friends. I thought it would be cute. I thought it would be cheesy.

We See Chick Flicks, Er, Action Movies Starring Dearly Departed Aussies: The Dark Knight

The Dark Knight
Starring Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Aaron Eckhart, & Gary Oldman
Directed by Christopher Nolan

Before walking in the theater (and for the record, I bought my ticket four days in advance because it was obvious every showing the opening weekend was going to sell-out) I already knew The Dark

We See Chick Flicks, Er, Action Movies Starring James McAvoy: Wanted

Starring Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman, Common
I was very excited to see Wanted because it stars two of my most favorite sexual beings ever: James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie. I dragged our usual “We See Chick Flicks” scribe, Lesley, out to see the movie on Friday night and needless to say, I…

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. But if you’re really jonesing for some schmaltz and chivalry, these DVD releases should get you through the…

We See Chick Flicks: Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Starring Jason Segel, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell
Okay, ladies this is a very special addition of “We See Chick Flicks”. Both because I loved, loved, loved this movie and for the PENIS factor. Yup, you’ve probably heard about it, and maybe some of you have already seen it, but this movie i…

Haven’t We Seen This Chick Flick Before?

One movie The Frisky will not be reviewing in our “We See Chick Flicks” column? Made Of Honor. Why? Because you’ve already seen it. It was released in 1997, under a different title, My Best Friend’s Wedding, and it starred Julia Roberts, not Patrick Dempsey. It was a terrible movie. Pretty sure thi…
