Can chick flicks make men more sensitive?

February 12, 2010 | NeW Staff

Let’s face it.  Men and women are different.  We have unique hobbies, we enjoy different types of entertainment, we certainly have different tastes in color schemes.  Perhaps one of the most distinguishing characteristics between men and women is seen in movie selections.  

Guys prefer the “shoot ’em up” action-packed thrillers, where ladies often would rather curl up to watch an old-fashioned love story.  That’s not to say there aren’t exceptions, or that some men like romance movies and that girls enjoy adventure, but I think we can all agree, that chick flicks are enjoyed much more by women on average.

Well, one man has taken the ultimate challenge:  30 chick flicks in 30 days.  Why?  All in an effort to better understand his wife and the opposite sex.  He’s using his website and Twitter to review and take suggestions for movies to view.  The challenge will end Valentine’s Day.  Check out the website; it’s worth a vist.

This is one brave man!  But I can’t help but respect and admire him both for recognizing the differences between men and women and wanting to understand women better.  Do you think it’s that easy for guys finally to figure out women by just watching and analyzing a bunch of chick flicks?  Could this reignite romance and chivalry?  I’m interested to hear your thoughts.

I thought I’d share one of his video reviews with a fellow gentleman analyzing a movie our own Blogette, Anna Beavon, reviewed earlier this year–Leap Year.  Interesting commentary.  This chick flick was thought-provoking and “inspirational” for one man who watched it:
