I vote yes although I haven't seen it yet. I call it a chick flick couples can watch together guilt free. Anything could be worse. Just look at "Just Like Heaven."

I was skeptical going in but because my girlfriend LOVES Jennifer Aniston (quick sidenote: Ask any woman alive who they side with in the whole Aniston/Pitt/Jolie thing and they'll all tell you Aniston. They HATE Jolie for breaking up Brad and Jen) I figured I'd bite the bullet and man up.

Gotta say it wasn't as bad as I thought. I knew as long as VV was in it I had a chance and the opportunity to see Aniston's bare ass wasn't too bad either so all in all I came away no worse for ware ;-D

You can't lose with a movie like this guys. It's not atrocious enough that you can't at least somewhat enjoy it, PLUS you get bonus points from the woman for sitting through it. And like that dude from the Citi commerical says, bonus points are rewarding....very, very, very rewarding!

That's an interesting point that someone should probably write a book about, or at least a chapter in a book about what makes women irrational. I asked my girlfriend, self-proclaimed pop culture non-participant and she went with exactly what you said.

You see, these women don't really like Jennifer Aniston... they like "Rachel from Friends." They like her hair, her wit and her down-to-earth way of dealing with the sometimes irrational Ross. Realize something gentleman, to almost every woman out there, we are Ross. That, or they're just wishing we were more like John Cusack in "Say Anything."

I should rent "The Good Girl" where Aniston plays a woman who has sex with teenage cashier Jake Gyllenhall. Or, then, maybe women will just start wishing we're all Jake Brokeback Mountain Gyllenhall. Suck; we can't win guys.

No wonder every chick looks at me sideways when I say I've seen about 15 minutes of Friends in my life, and that's just the buildup from all the few second bits I've caught over years of channel surfing.

I would definitely not recommend this as a "date movie". That might be uncomfortable.

I avoid anything that's a romantic comedy like the plague, but I suppose it appears like a chick flick...although the folks who have seen this are in a better position to make a call on it.

It's definitely a chick flick. Nothing wrong with that though. One of my favorite movies, Amelie, is a major chick flick. The Break-up sucked IMO. There are a few minutes of Vaughn brilliance but halfway through it degrades into a Lifetime movie and gets way too full of itself.

No way is it a chick-flick, RyanK. Don't worry about it.

Just sit back, loosen your bra straps and grab a Virginia Slim out of your purse, and enjoy the film. It doesn't make you less of a man.

Enjoy your movie and flirtini!
