Real Men Don’t Dig Chick-Flicks

A female friend of mine had a hunch that I would not like a movie she had recently enjoyed.  So, just to prove a point to herself, she spent 40 minutes telling me every damn detail of the film’s scenario, characters, and plot.  There’s 40 minutes out of my life I can never get back.  Judging by what she told me in that long, long, 40 minutes, the only reason any man would sit through that movie, (or anything like it), is in the hope he would deserve sympathy sex afterwards.

In case my friend is in any doubt that I really, really, don’t want to watch a movie like the one she just described to me in such excruciating detail, here are some of the movies I like best.

Come to think of it, my friend did once make me sit all the way through an even worse film, (including the out~takes), than the distressingly stultifying chick flick she’s recently told me all about, (and I mean all about).

Some of my favourite movies that didn’t make the cut; Bambi, Bullit, A Bridge Too Far, Casablanca, The Cruel Sea, Die Hard, Ben Hur, Groundhog Day, High Society, North by Northwest, The Searchers, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Sleeping Beauty, Vanishing Point, Young Frankenstein, and many, many more.  Some of which are rom-com, but none is a damn annoying depressing chick-flick…

    1. Based on the novel The Honest Courtesan, (is there such a thing as an honest whore?), courtesan movies are sometimes OK, but I’ll bet there aren’t many laughs in this picture. I think Catherine McCormack is cute, looks a lot like Jodie Foster.

      1. To your question…is there any such thing as an honest man in touch with himself? I kind of see the two things (that type of man and a whore as you see one as two sides of an odd coin.
        The character in that movie is very honest, imo. It’s the lead man who has an issue being who he wants to be. It’s more of a movie about the sexuality of the time – a dichotomous existence of closeted uneducated wives of men who much preferred the open and educated courtesans. The only 2 roles that women had and the men …I’ll stop – don’t watch it. Bridge Over the River Kwai is pretty good!

  2. See, I’m curious about what movie was explained to you in such great detail.

    1. The Painted Veil, from the 1925 novel by W. Somerest Maughan. Starring Niomi Watts, Edward Norton and the great English actress Diana Rigg. I never did like W. Somerset Maughan either.

      1. Edward Norton irritates me to no end and that put on accent is atrocious! I quite like Liev Schreiber. I vaguely remember the trailers for that, and thinking, “um…nope.”
        Sad face for the loss of those precious forty minutes. The could have been much better spent.
