Top 10 Chick Flicks for Guys

Chick flicks. It’s a broad term for any movie girls are going to like. There are two problems with the term that I’m going to address.

First, the vagueness of it. What is it? For our purposes and the standard I have always lived by; a chick flick is any movie with romance but not too much action. Like Shaun of the Dead has an element of romance to it but it mostly has zombies and people getting their insides taken out.

The second problem is it’s kind of sexist. This is the 21st century. Boys are getting manicures and girls are playing football on TV. It is lingerie football but still progress. So these movies can’t all just be for girls right? Sure most of them are. That’s fair. I got dragged into Dirty Dancing Havana Nights. Longest 86 minutes of my life. Some of these movies a man can enjoy though. Here’s my top 10.  Have a "HooplaHa" moment with your lady friend.

  1. Casablanca - Why can’t we wear hats anymore? I’d look so good in a hat. Humphrey Bogart dresses well, smokes, drinks and says cold blooded things to people. Bogart is the epitome of detached coolness that every man wishes he could be.  Instead of the daiquiri drinking, emoticon texting lady boys we’ve become.
  2. The Purple Rose of Cairo -   I love Woody Allen. Jeff Daniels was in Speed and dresses like a safari guide in this.
  3. When Harry Met Sally – This is really funny. And I go to Katz’s, the deli in the movie, all the time. I like the pickles. It takes Harry and Sally 12 years before they finally end up together. Giving me hope that I’ll end up with my prom date despite not speaking in 10 years. Mary, baby, I miss you. If you read this call me. Actually text me. I’ve got new emoticons I want to use.
  4. Kate and Leopold – Time Travel and Hugh Jackman. Where is the chick flick part of, oh, Meg Ryan. Right. This is my guiltiest pleasure. Look out for the scene where Hugh Jackman sells butter.
  5. Moonstruck – The "I lost my hand" speech is the most manly speech in movie history. It stirs me up. Life can be unfair. Why not be unfair right back? The passion in this explodes off the screen and all over your face. We’re going to need some towels over here.
  6. Wall E – I cried when I saw this. Maybe 10 times. How’s that for masculine? You’ll cry too. Don’t fight it. Share a close moment with someone you love.
  7. High Fidelity – There had to be a John Cusack movie on here. He’s a record store owner and there is lots of good music. And you can hate Jack Black but he’s great in this. His Cosby Sweater line is one of my favorite put downs I’ve ever seen in a movie.
  8. 10 Things I Hate about You – It’s a modernization of the Taming Of the Shrew. You don’t have to trust me but would The Bard steer you wrong? Oh and Larisa Oleynik is in this. What’s the Secret of Alex Mack? She’s hot now. She’s hot. The rest of the cast is great too. Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Larry Miller. And the guy from Numbers. You know the really Jewish one. No, not Rob Morrow. The other really Jewish one. David Krumoltz.
  9. Science of Sleep. This is for the hipsters and cool kids. Michael Gondry presents lots of interesting imagery in everything he does. He’s a genius in his inventiveness. It’s weird and mesmerizing. The main character thinks of ideas for calendars as a job. Maybe the easiest job I’ve ever heard of. Oh we don’t have anything for October? A kitten peeking out of a pumpkin. July? Same kitten holding a sparkler.  Internet blogger by comparison is basically a railroad worker or Ice Road Trucker or something. Anyway. Good movie.
  10. Jerry Maguire. Football! Grr! It goes last. So it completes this list.  It’s tough because there is a corny kid and a divorced woman man hating group. And so much romance. There is football though. A lot of it. Touchdowns are scored and the NFL draft is covered. How did they fit this all in a single movie? They made it two hours and twenty minutes long! You might need an intermission. Order some pizza. It’s better than popcorn anyway. And the tomato sauce has lycopene. So it’s basically health food.

Baby Countdown Enters Final Days - The Creation Of Us (S1:E7)

** OGTV's first The Creation Of Us (S1) playlist story of the week follows Aydian and Jenilee as they enter the final planning stages for the birth of their baby! **

What is more dramatic than the dwindling days before the birth of a couple's first child? In this episode of The Creation Of Us, the countdown is on as Aydian and Jenilee scramble to learn all they have to know about childbirth and being parents.

Although there is much to do, the parents-to-be are pretty organized. First, they sit down with their doula to come up with a day of birth and postpartum plan. They discuss their ideas for keeping Jenilee comfortable, and create checklists and guidelines to help manage all the details. Afterward, they are off to a birthing class where they go through what the actual birth will be like.

"The birthing class always makes me feel so much more secure about giving birth," Jenilee relates. "It's comforting to be developing a toolbox so I have things to grab from when the birth actually happens." Aydian has concerns and questions and their birthing teacher, Sarah, walks them through different techniques for the actual birth and things they can practice at home.

After the birthing class, they meet with their midwife for the first time. While a little nervous about a first meeting with someone so integral to the birth, Jenilee and Aydian are very excited to have both a doula and a midwife on board. "Jenilee and I chose to have a midwife because the birth process is so intimate," Aydian notes. "Our plan is to birth in a place that doesn't feel like a hospital. Ideally, if we are in a birthing center that makes us feel like we are in our own home, we can give that to ourselves and our child for the first moments of birth."

Jenilee and Aydian hope that if they are able to follow their plan, it will make the birth feel less medical and more spiritual, true to who they are as a couple. The clock is ticking – join them as they start the final countdown to the biggest day of their lives.
