A fun, interesting, but sassy film guide for women
Bette Davis walking off the boat in Now Voyager, the orgasm scene in When Harry Met Sally, Bill Murray backing off into the crowd, away from Scarlett Johanssen in Lost in Translation -- all are seminal chick flick moments, and, as such, are often passed over in more traditional(i.e. male) film guides. Chick Flicks seeks to make amends: written by and for women, you won't find lengthy pieces on Hitchcock's lighting engineers, Fellini's use of suture of Antonioni's representation of the sixties in Blow-Up. Rather, a witty, sassy and irreverent guide to what video to get out when the girls come round for a pizza: Eric Rohmer's Full Moon In Paris? Or Dirty Dancing? Mr Wonderful? Or Singles?
