Movie Meme - Chick Flick

A little bit of a tough one this week from Hannah at Metal Mummy.  It's the dreaded chick flick.

I'm not a girly girl at all.  I'm not saying I'm a tom boy but I hate all that pink fluffy sparkly fairy crap.  I also prefer a pint of cider to a fancy cocktail any day.

My idea of hell in a movie?  Mamma Mia *shudders* I still can't believe a couple of my friends made me watch that film.  I'll never get 108 minutes of my life back.

Despite this, I can appreciate a good old chick flick.  There have been some great ones: Bridget Jones, Ghost, Pretty Woman, Love Actually, Notting Hill, Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Notebook and so on.

I was going to go with Memoirs Of A Geisha but I wasn't sure if it could be classed as a proper chick flick?

However, I'll stick with my first choice.

Dirty Dancing.

Ah, what a classic.

I've always loved this film and have loved it as long as I can remember.  I remember my friend had it on VHS when it first came out back in the 80's and the bit when Penny is in bed after her 'op' and Johnny walks in and she gasps "Johnny"....we would sit and rewind it and all shout "Rubber" right before she said it.  Ah good childish times!

I'm a complete sucker for 80's films as you already know.  This is one of those films that you can sit and recite all the amazing lines (looks around...just me then?)...

"I carried a watermelon"
"Nobody puts Baby in the corner"
"I think she gets this from me"
"Go back to your play pen, Baby"
"You just put your pickle on everybodys plate college boy and leave the hard stuff to me"


What's not to love about this movie?  Classic lines, brilliant soundtrack and what's more the late, great Patrick Swayze.  Sir, you are a legend.


What's your favourite?  Head over to Hannah's blog and link up...

Yep, loved this too, but it did result in lots of really bad dancing ... since most of us can't move like Patrick Swayze!

Sorry I evoked girlyness on you - believe me, I felt ILL writing it. x

Classic choice. The Notebook is beautiful too. I nearly did both. Totally agree with you on Mama Mia...whoever thought that was a good idea???

I love Dirty Dancing.
You must see The Time Traveller's Wife - it is one of only few films that does justice to the book.
