Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chick flicks rule at the box office. The highest grossing movie of all time is still Titanic, and the success of these films grows every year, as many are now breaking the coveted $100 million mark. In a lively celebration of chick flicks past and present, The Ultimate Guide to Chick Flicks is packed with recommendations and glam photos, so every aficionado can feel like a pretty woman. Much more than an examination of individual movies, The Ultimate Guide to Chick Flicks has experts explore the elements that make a movie a chick flick and offer insights into the archetypes—the bad boy, the Cinderella, the misfit—that are essential ingredients for any film with girl power. Culled from interviews with stylists, choreographers, and many others, The Ultimate Guide to Chick Flicks features:

• Chick flick recommendations for every day of the year

• Recipes for disaster, heartbreak, and fried green tomatoes

• Signature fashions, from the Flashdance ripped sweatshirt to the pink suit featured in Legally Blonde

• Essential viewing from the classics to the undiscovered gems, and suggestions for must-have DVDs

• The inside dirt on Hollywood hunks

Packed with photos and original illustrations, fun lists and sidebars, this tribute is as delicious as the films it celebrates.
