A film that indulges in the hopes and dreams of women and/or girls. A film that has a happy, fuzzy, ridiculously unrealistic ending.

A film that has the following formula:
Two people fall in love
They get along fine
There is some kind of misunderstanding

Oh no, not another boring formulaic chick flick!

A sappy film that is generally geared towards women. It is always a love story, usually a comedy, and nausea inducing in men.
Man, did you see that chick flick Pretty Woman?! It was awful!

Term for a movie geared for women. Quite often seen on cable TV like The Hallmark Channel and endorsed by people like Oprah. These movies make women the heros and show life from a woman's perspective. Most men hate these films cuz they are cheezy and dumb. Pussy-whipped men like them...or pretend to.
Wife: Honey, lets watch: She Finally Kills The Bad Guy!
Husband's mind: ( Not another chick flick! )
Husband's reply: ...yes dear.

A movie that embodies all that is wrong with the world; a movie which displays a gross over-indulgence into, and exploration of, the workings of the female psyche and the accomanying emotional tendencies.
