Top 10 Chick Flicks! Which Ones Did They Miss?

Hi – –

The world is so complicated and devastating right now, it’s good to escape to some romance, so here are the Top 10 Chick Flicks! Which ones do you think they missed? I’m posting the video and then I’ll share a few of the films i think should be on the list.

Do you agree with the Top 10 Chick Flicks! ? I really like most of the films on this list — except maybe Bridget Jones Diary that i can take or leave. I would have put Notting Hill on the main list over Bridget Jones and maybe over Sleepless in Seattle. I would have put Love, Actually and Dirty Dancing higher on the list. Here are some of the chick flicks i think they missed and i’d be sure to include —

A Walk On the Moon — one of the most romantic, sexiest movies ever made, featuring an early, delicious appearance by Viggo Mortensen

Strictly Ballroom — Hilariously funny and intensely romantic, i adore this film. Paso Doble? Hell yes!

4 Weddings and a Funeral — Hugh Grant is the king of chick flicks and this one wins.

Last of the Mohicans — While certainly an action/adventure movie that appeals to guys, Last of the Mos is perhaps more romantic than any other film on the list. I will find you!

I’m sure there are others i missed. What about you? Which chick flicks would you put on this list and which would you leave off?

Thank you for stopping by! : )

Our Romance with the Few “Perfect” Products

hankypanky Hi. Yesterday, i was chatting with a woman in a store in Laguna Beach about those few products that are so exceptional, so perfect for their purposes, that nothing can really compete. I submitted my short list. First was Hanky Pankys, the remarkable thong panties for women that make thong wearing not just better, but an actual delight. Speaking as a person who didn’t grow up wearing thongs, the adjustment period looked to be extreme — until Hanky Pankys came along. Today, i will confess under threat of TMI that i wear them under everything and my lingerie drawer features no other panties!

My second addition to the list of “perfect” products is FitFlops. These thong sandals are fitflopsnothing like a traditional flip flop — those wildly floppy, unsupported, fun things that ruin your feet. FitFlops have all the cool of a flip flop with none of the downside. They’re support for every curve and angle of your feet. They don’t fall off when you walk, and i walk everywhere in them. In the summer, i hardly wear anything else since they come in gazillions of cute styles that look great with everything from dresses to shorts.

Okay, enough hymns of praise to products. But this line of thought made me wonder about romances. As a romance author, i, like my peers, am always trying to write a “perfect” romance that will touch the hearts of virtually everyone who reads it. Are there any “perfect” romances? I think maybe so.

prideandprejudicePride and Prejudice comes to mind. I always marvel that my macho male husband will happily sit and watch Pride and Prejudice the tenth or twelfth time and never get tired of it. He hates most romances. Not P&P! It has everything. The “ideal” hero but for his stupid pride. The perfect feisty heroine who defines all feisty heroines. A considerable amount of angst and real problems to be overcome, and a phenomenally satisfying HEA. I’m sure many will disagree, but i think P&P remains the source of all romance because it’s very nearly perfect.

I know many will disagree with this one, but i have often described Dirty Dancing as the220px-Dirty_Dancing perfect movie. It had everything for the people who went to see it again and again, and it remains popular today. The rich, idealistic heroine who believes everything is possible, and the bad boy hero from the wrong side of the tracks who is striving to better himself make an irresistible combination. Patrick Swayze’s dancing doesn’t hurt. The movie is funny, angst-ridden, sexy as hell, and ultimately so satisfying it leaves you wanting to start it again from the beginning. Sigh. Nobody puts baby in a corner.

So that’s my little lineup. What perfect products are on your list?
