10 Chick Flicks Men Secretly Enjoy

By

Believe it or not, there are some "chick flicks" that appeal to the male species!

4. Knocked Up- This is the new breed of romantic comedy and it's being perfected by guys like Seth Rogan and Judd Apatow. Again what makes this movie work for guys is that it's atypical of the romantic comedy. A slacker dude hooks in for a one night stand with a hot news reporter and she gets pregnant? On top of that, he and his buddies are building a "Vagtastic" website? Hilarious.

5. 40 Year Old Virgin-The humor sucks every guy into this movie - the sweet innocence of Steve Carrell's character, Andy Stitzer, and the fact that many women can relate to Mary Steenburgen's character, Trish. Trish is a single mom in the dating world, going through the angst of trying to find a decent guy -and of course she and Andy fall in love. Awwwwwwww….so sweet.

6. Thelma & Louise- The female Butch and Sundance - girls with guns on the run from the law! Awesome.

7. As Good As It Gets- See the pattern here? Another romantic comedy with very little "romantic" and plenty of comedy for the guys, and just enough sappiness for the ladies - "You make me want to be a better man." Plus, dudes love Jack Nicholson.

8. Notting Hill- Any story where the dorky English guy (Hugh Grant) pulls a hot film superstar (Julia Roberts) is every guy's dream. Plus Hugh Grant's weirdo buddy, Spike, played by Rhys Ifans, is hilarious - he's worth the price of admission by himself.

9. Hitch- This one is the typical chick flick with a couple of notable exceptions. The diversity of the lead characters, Will Smith & Eva Mendes, makes this a standout. Plus, who doesn't love Will Smith? Will's built up quite a bit of good will (no pun intended) with some of the best action flicks of all time, so we give him a pass when he goes softy romantic lead on us. And let's face it - the dude is funny in this film. There's some great slapstick comedy in this one with Will and Kevin James in a supporting role. Plus we get to see Eva Mendes for two hours - and the ladies get to see Will Smith be all sweet and charming.

10. There's Something About Mary-Perhaps the greatest romantic comedy of all time. And make no mistake, this Farrelly Brothers comedic masterpiece is a romantic comedy at its core. Strip away the slapstick, the cringe-inducing "hair gel" scene, the political incorrectness and focus strictly on the story and what do you have? A guy (Ben Stiller) who's been in love with one woman (Cameron Diaz) since he was in high school, who goes all out to find her and profess his undying love for her - and of course he gets the girl in the end. Love story for the ladies and "We got a bleeder!" jokes for the guys.

Perfection!
