12 Signs It’s a Chick Flick

Spencer Jarrett, who ended up watching ” One True Thing” with me last night, collects evidence on what makes a girly movie:
–Mom has cancer
–Long dinner scenes
–Requires emotion ‘reading between the lines’
–Tense family get togethers
–Women get all the good lines
–No matter what happens to any character, their clothes are great
–Lots of facial close-ups
–During the big scene, a dish or glass gets broken
–Characters often run away from each other
–Almost every scene has some form of eating or drinking
–Conflicts get resolved with no one being shot
–At least one character is a writer.
