Chick Flicks for Guys, and Macho Films for Girls

<p>Last night, we rented Scarface, the classic guy film...thought my girls should see it to understand "say hello to my little friend" and I love Al Pacino, and his co-star...woohoo...</p>

<p>anyway, we started talking about films girls should see that guys like and vice versa. We came up with these to start, if you have any more please add!!</p>

<p>Girls should see:<br>
Animal House
Godfathers 1, 11 and I guess 111
Anything with Clint Eastwood- Dirty Harry or a Western</p>

<p>Guys should see:
Steel Magnolias
Working Girl
And something with Debra Winger and Mollie Ringwold</p>

<p>And all teens should see:
Any Alfred Hitchcock movie beyond just Physcho
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Anything with Vincent Price from the 60s
The Orignal Planet of the Apes
Vietnam War movies- Platoon, Coming Home,</p>

<p>"Mean Girls" for guys... they tend to like it. Most of them get a good laugh out of "10 Things I Hate About You" and "Cruel Intentions."</p>

<p>I love the sports movies - Hoosiers, Remember the Titans, Friday Night Lights.</p>

<p>I love Animal House. And I'm a girl.</p>

<p>I would also add Apocalypse Now to the 'Nam movies ("I love the smell of napalm in the morning!") and Monty Python and the Holy Grail to the general teen category. You haven't lived till you've seen Monty Python.</p>

<p>My girls love:
The Italian Job
Gone in 60 Seconds
Fast and the Furious
Mortal Combat
Top Gun
Iron Eagle
All 3 Indy movies and all 3 back to the future
Friday Night Lights.....</p>

<p>Boys like and watch:
10 things I hate about you
Legally Blonde
16 candles
Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast
Sword in the Stone
Doc Hollywood....</p>

<p>But they all like the movies, not really any specific preferences, just always tons of fun. All love star wars, batman, indy, harry potter, LOTR, and all are waiting for cinderella on dvd. Also really like Zorro, Weekend at Bernies, Sahara, 3 muskateers, and the Last starfighter.</p>

<p>Boys are 20, 17 and 15 and the girls 21 and 19. We watched shrek 2 last night for like the 50th time. Laughed til we cried. Then watched Sahara, a buddy movie.</p>



<p>My Ds love MP, and my favorite scene in Apocolypse Now is the guy surfing behind the river boat, I have been in one of those boats going under the Golden Gate Bridge</p>


<p>I just thought of:</p>

<p>Dr. Strangelove
Rosemarys Baby
The Original of Oceans Eleven
Man Who Knew too Much
and anything with Lon Cheney</p>

<p>My dh actually REALLY liked "The Notebook"! ~berurah</p>

<p>In my house the S likes funny. So. Girls should watch Orange County, Dodgeball, Wedding Crashers, anything that Monty Python ever even remotely influenced.</p>

<p>From the Ds perspective? Boys shouldn't watch movies they should just want to snuggle up a little more:).</p>

<p>The ultimate chick flick for guys-Somewhere in Time, Christopher Reeve & Jane Seymour (My DH and S groan everytime I put the DVD in. They don't stay in the room long enough to get past the Interpol warning :) </p>

<p>Ultimate guy flicks for chicks-Any three Stooges movie-(I personally hate watching the I don't :) ; Monty Python-Holy Grail; Robin Hood-Men in Tights; and Young Frankenstein with Gene Wilder.</p>

<p>D likes both "The Great Escape" and "Chicken Run." She also likes "Dr. Strangelove."</p>

<p>"Mortal Combat"</p>

<p>I believe it is Kombat (with the K)</p>

<p>Hey, it is picky, but i gotta represent.......peace.</p>

<p>i am really sick of "mean girls". i'd also like to throw out the movie amelie - that's a good one for girls and guys. it's in french so i hope they enjoy reading subtitles :)</p>

<p><em>lol</em> doddsmom! Get dh <strong>LOVES</strong> "Somewhere in Time"! It was filmed on Mackinac Island at the Grand Hotel. My dh is from Michigan, and his love for Michigan was transferred onto that movie. We visited the Grand Hotel the last time we went to Michigan to visit! </p>


<p>"something's gotta give"( Keaton and Nicholson) for older guys who think that they might have something in common with younger women! A moral is tucked into this movie that experience and wisdom is worth far more than.....well you know the rest.........Am I the only guy that liked this movie?</p>

<p>hey -- don't forget to mention "dirty dancing" w/Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Gray.</p>

Girls should watch Orange County


<p>We just saw that movie for the first time this summer.
I actually have nightmares about that kind of thing happening to S! There is another kid at his (rather large) HS with the exact same name. And this "evil twin" has a less than stellar record at the school......we know this because S will sometimes get called to the office/couselor's office and they will look at him and go, "oh, not you, we wanted the other one" :rolleyes:</p>


<p>BTW, I just bought the DVD Sense and Sensibility<a href="Emma%20Thompson">/B</a> the other day and watched it last night.
S stayed up and watched the whole thing ;)
And he watched **Babette's Feast
with me last weekend too!</p>

<p>Just discovered H watches Sex and the CIty now, the tamer version, censored cuts, he thought it was stupid when it was on HBO, so he missed the, um, racier versions. He gets into the drama I guess....</p>

<p>So honey watcha watching? Oh, flipping between golf and Sex and the City....</p>

<p>okey dokey</p>

<p>Not a movie, but I was completely hooked on the series 24. Last season was not as good as the first 2, but I still watched. My H and S's love this show and it's kind of a "guy" show (lots of shooting, explosions, etc ;) )</p>

<p>Since when is Holy Grail a guy movie? I don't know anyone, girl or guy, who didn't grow up laugher their, uh, socks off at that.</p>

<p>Best tough guy movie that girls will love--"Cool Hand Luke"</p>

<p>Best thoughtful movie for everyone--"the Shawshank Redemption"</p>

<p>My new favorite, possibly chick flick but again, I think the guys will like,too --"Garden State".</p>

<p>It's hard for met to categorize, my S and D like pretty much the same movies.</p>

<p>Girls should see "The Right Stuff", guys should see "Moulin Rouge"!</p>

<p>I like "touching the void" saw it in a theatre.
I love anything about climbing- I am actually scared of heights- but climbing fascinates me & several climbers are great writers.</p>

<p>RIght stuff was fun ( confused it for a minute with Top Gun- another macho movie)
Haven't seen Moulin ROuge_ I like more romantic films if I am going to see a "chick" movie- i.e anything with Ralph Finnes like English Patient or teh Constant Gardener
Shawshank Redemption is good- I much prefer Kings short stories to his novels.
You want to see a great movie?
The Duellists
Saw it in a theatre- Keith Carradine- Harvey Keitel- from a story by Joesph Conrad</p>
