i wouldnt call eternal sunshine of the spotless mind a chick flick, but i guess to some it is.

Also, I do think they went for the tear-jerker type ending. I just don't think they pulled it off well.


they said thats not what they were going for. maybe they were lying, i dont think so though. cold mountain has a tear jerker ending. the break up just wanted to be different.

for me the real litmus test for a chick flick is whether or a not a guy would admit to watching the movie without his girlfriend.

Agreed, I think it's much more of a dark comedy but it doesn't follow the typical chick flick formula either. Basically, if there is complex character development and an original plot, it ceases being a chick flick regardless of the subject matter. Chick flicks by definition are intended to appeal to the bonehead mass audience. You're typical woman who loves chick flicks would absolutely hate a Charlie Kauffman film.

I don't think that's a good litmus test. Maybe when you're 17. I like a lot of chick flicks. I don't really care what people think. ;-)

I disagree. Besides, at least i didn't fall asleep in the middle of the break up.
