very apt.

I watched The Joy Luck Club tonight. I am an Amy Tan fan, having read only one book – not this one.

It made me cry. That doesn’t happen very often. The acting wasn’t even very good.

    Don’t think I could sit through that one. Since when do you cry during chick flicks?

    I don’t think I’d first describe it as a chick flick… it’s maybe a more girlish movie, but a focus on an idealistic romance doesn’t really come into play. The cover on inmd is rather misleading.

    question 😛 what makes a chick flick? Is it the simple presence of ‘Romance’ in the genre title?

    Nope… its usually an abundance of women in the cinema seats.
