guide created for all women, ladies, girls, wives, girlfriends, and any
person of the female persuasion...to get a better understanding of the
male psyche through cinema.
We've sat through ALL your "chick flicks", some of those were exceptionally excruciating..."Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants"..one and gasp two!, "The Ya Ya Sisterhood"...I still have nightmares, anything with Freddie Prinze Jr., Hugh Grant, Hugh Jackman, YOU SUCK! Chad Michael Murray, arrrrgh...but I am remiss. If you're thinking of buying a gift, please avoid the proverbial tie or ugly sweater...buy a dvd of any of the following films...or better yet, watch them with us. It means sooo much more to us than you could ever imagine.
This is a
partial list and is by no means complete. A recurring theme are movies
made by certain actors(Steve McQueen, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Clint
Eastwood, Robert DeNiro)...these guys make Chuck Norrisisms sound
sophomoric and infantile. I challenge anybody to come up with your own
