Seeing that Valentine’s Day is this week, I want to help all our male readers out there. Yes, V Day is the BIGGEST FRAUD OF A HOLIDAY ON THE CALENDAR. It was built into our calendar by greeting card companies and florists to help boost their sales between the post-Christmas funk and the Mother’s Day/Easter/Graduation trifecta of the spring. But that’s not important right now.
What is important is that more than likely you are going to be forced to watch a chick flick – one way or another. It’s inevitable. It’s like death. Or taxes. Or middle school girl giggling.
First, let’s define Chick flick…
chick flick n. A movie with themes, characters, or events that appeal more to women than to men.
That’s a decent starting definition.
This chart by Kathy Shaskan is helpful in most regards but it is equally clear that she isn’t down with guy movies.
Right off the bat – you see what is at stake here. You are going to have to watch a movie that has an incredibly high potential of sending you into Postal Mode. THAT is where I come in.
I want to arm you with movies that will not totally drive you off the edge into Postal Oblivion. We already talked about movies to avoid.
Next post – tolerable solutions to this faux holiday.
