When guys meet up, they fill their conversations with testosterone-induced topics like poker, sports, cars, and hot women, all ribbing each other and comparing notes on said topics. What many of them are loathe to admit to one another is that they are actually secret softies and enjoy less manly things too, one of which is watching chic flicks.
Yes, chic flicks. Many men are allergic to the term because it alludes to something girly. For those not in the know, chic flicks are basically romantic movies that are targeted more to the female market than the males. But believe it or not, there are full-on chic flicks out there that real men can attest to not just watching, but enjoying thoroughly. Maybe it’s because there are hot actresses in the movie that they can drool over. Or maybe the men try to live vicariously through the male character who gets the girl in the end. Whatever the reason, it certainly doesn’t make these kinds of men weak. In fact, a man’s ability to get in touch with his romantic and mushy side is one of the things that makes him a real man!

Who can forget Julia Roberts as the beautiful hooker Vivian Ward in the highly successful romantic comedy Pretty Woman?

She eventually gets the guy in the end, of course. Men enjoyed this movie because who doesn’t find Julia Roberts endearing and charming? And who doesn’t like to dream about being able to sweep a girl off her feet?

Anyone and everyone has the highest of regards for screen legend Meryl Streep, whose career has spanned more than four decades. When she was tapped to play the enigmatic editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly in the film adaptation of the novel The Devil Wears Prada, it was practically a given that the public would be in for a ride. And Streep didn’t disappoint, playing the role of the icy fashion magazine executive with much aplomb, making the film a box-office hit with both men and women trooping to the movie theatres to watch it.
