    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    When harry met sally- chick flick or not?

    BrandeisSanSoo thinks that this is a chick flick, but I don't think it is.

    Chick flicks are overly sappy, have absolutely no plot, are predictable, and are generally booring

    What do you all think?

    I dunno, I watched it some time ago and it seemed ok.

    Granted, I can't even remember what it's about now.

    Meg Ryan was cute at some point in time.. haven't seen her in ages though, I dunno what she's like now.

    Well.....

    My girlfriend made me sit through WAY too many of those Meg Ryan flicks...

    'When Harry met Sally' IS a chick flick, but to it's defense, it's not as much a chick flick as French Kiss.

    Do Brand a favour and take him to see Kate and Leopold. It's the only Meg Ryan flick I saw that I genuinely liked.

    Really? I didn't realize that she'd acted in anything good after WHMS

    Well, Meg didn't really do it for me in the movie.....

    The reason why it was cool was because it had a good storyline, time travel and that guy who played Wolverine - he's surprisingly a really good actor.

    When Harry met Sally is the #7 chick flick of all time: http://www.eonline.com/Features/Topt...kflicks/7.html

    Which means, if you make him watch it, you are obligated to perform "special favors".

    Chick Flicks do have plots! But they are boring plots!

    I can't believe you would make him watch that piece of trash.

    ...dissapointing...watch something balls out and unsettling like "City of God"
    or "Europa Europa"...."Come and See" would be really good too (if you want to have nightmares)
    ..."Pixote" is the Brazillian film that inspired C.o.G. that **** will blow your mind. Anybody else have solid recomendations in order to save our comrade Brand from the mediocrity and dissatisfaction (temporarily we hope) of chickflickdom?

    Geez BBJJ, next thing you know you'll be breaking out the " Dirty Dancing".

    When Harry met Sally is simply the best chick flick ever made, and contains the most important movie conversation between a man and a woman. Hint, its in the beginning of the movie where Harry explains to Sally what males wish to do to their female friends.
