Why Men Love Chick Flicks: It’s the eye candy, stupid!


It seems that men are so against chick flicks, but I’m here to tell you why you love them. It’s about time you come to the realization. When we’re in a sausage fest, we just can’t help but to talk about how much we hate those sob stories. Fine, you’re a hard ass like every other guy on this planet. And just like every other guy on this planet, you’ll pay to see eye candy.

Prime example: Bride Wars. Now, I’m not here to promote the movie, but the eye candy is phenomenal. I boycotted Sex and the City cause I honestly think every actress in that movie is unattractive to say the least. Bride Wars is a whole different story. You’re putting Anne Hathaway (Devil Wears Prada, Get Smart) and Kate Hudson (You, Me, and Dupree and My Best Friend’s Girl) on the same screen, giving most men more eye candy than they can handle when they’re out with a lady friend.

So when she calls you and tells you she wants to go see that new chick flick with Kate Hudson, the best thing to do is to play dumb: “What’s it called? Oh. Never heard of it, but we can go I guess.” You shouldn’t start jumping for joy, because then she might not think you’re a man anymore.
