You had a guy review a major chick film and then let him suggest romantic Valentine’s movies to watch at home? Are you out of your minds? Sure, “Because I Said So” wasn’t great art. But it was great fun, especially if you are female of mature years like me and my best pal who laughed along with me at the movie on Saturday. I don’t care what the critics say, I gave them my money and won’t be spending a dime on the one-big-fat-joke “Norbit” or the disgusting “Hannibal Rising.”
As for those DVD suggestions, give me a break! “When Harry Met Sally” is the worst film ever, suggesting that men and women can’t be friends without sex entering into the equation. What a load of hogwash. And “Moulin Rouge,” in a word the younger generation who loved it can understand, sucked.
For romance that men and women can enjoy together, I suggest “Romancing the Stone” for the action lovers or “Father Goose” for a dash of comedy. For a good musical, try “Pure Country.” Instead of the Disney cartoon (which I love, don’t get me wrong, but we’re talking about adults here!) I suggest “The Four Seasons.” And for just the ladies, go with any version of “Pride and Prejudice,” including the delightful modern musical version called “Bride and Prejudice.”
And the next time you want a chick flick reviewed, please send a chick!
