Damaged by chic flicks


Are you above 25 and your favorite movie still is Notting hill or Pretty woman, When harry met sally or The Note book or all of them? Do you still sometimes read Mills & Boon? If yes, then you are damaged by chic flicks for life. The common notion is that only teens love these movies but in spite of being on the wrong side of 30, I still love watching these. It's these movies that made us fall in love with love. And watching them again reminds us that though love feels faded over time but it still exists, it still is beautiful and it isn’t over rated. It is also like escapism from the stressful real world. So like the way booze, smoke work for some to de-stress, chic flicks work for some others like me.
I also think the whole world can be divided into two halves, one who love chic flicks and the others who don't. The ones who do love, they love them for life and the ones who don't, never ever loved them. Am sure if we make this a point of research there would a lot of characteristics common amongst women who love them. This could even be an interesting diagnostic tool.
There are some who find chic flicks lame, calling it puppy love or unreal fantasy but then how real is sci-fi fiction. There also many who are closet lovers, who are embarrassed to admit that they still like watching chic flicks. I have no such issues. I don't think I am a lesser of an ‘in control’ woman if I still love watching chic flicks.
If my thoughts trigger a thought of your own, do leave a comment. I would love to read your view.

Depends upon the environment you live in. Just imagine you watching "harry met.." and your friend enters the room and computer stop responding as it is also enjoying the movie ("chic flick PC"). Then it can be lifetime embarrassment.

Just kidding, Nice post liked it...

@ Sandeep, thats my point...i don't think watching 'harry met sally' makes anyone less of a man or a woman. The fact is you were enjoying watching it.

Nice blog you've got here. I'm not embarrassed to say that I loved Notting Hill and Love Actually. The fact that people still talk about these movies yet show how popular they still are.
