    Guys often note that they don't much care for chick flicks. Women often complain about the kind of mindless "action movies" that guys tend to favor.

    So, put the bias aside and admit which movie of the other variety you like the most.

    Guys: name your favorite chick flick -- and tell us why.

    Gals: name your favorite action movie -- and tell us why.

    Since I put this stupid thread up, I will go first (and maybe last):

    I have liked a couple of chick flicks, but the one I have (until now) secretly enjoyed the most was "Definitely, Maybe." I think Isla Fisher was flat out adorable and hot in that movie.

    Favorite chick flick:

    The Secret Garden

    The only movies that actually brings tears to my eyes.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VrMahhudZvo]YouTube - The Secret Garden (1993)[/ame]

    At the end when the little girl tells her uncle, "It wasn't wanted", the double meaning was simple and extraordinary at the same time.

    I'm normally an "Alien Resurrection" type of guy, but "The Secret Garden" is a very special movie.

    My favorite chick flick is "Keeping the Faith". That movie just cracks me up because it's such a very funny love story. All of the characters in the movie are just perfect for the role.

    Braveheart.
    No, wait. Gladiator.
    No, wait, Conan.

    I can't decide.

    I also like that off the wall one with Gina Davis as a pirate. Treasure Island.

    Favorite chick flick -- Dr Zhivago

    I like it because it's a well made movie.

    Braveheart, The Terminator, Predator, The Dark Knight. I quite enjoy 'action' movies.

    interesting replies so far.

    I haven't seen all of the movies.

    I probably also should probably "qualify" the terms. For example, one of my favorite all time movies is "Casablanca." But I don't think it fits as either a "chick flick" or an "action movie."

    Nope, it's an action movie.

    I love it, too. It's actually better than the one about pirates. The way she keeps saving the dude in both is just too much.

    The Dark Knight is my current favorite action movie. I finally saw it recently on twc and I understood why Heath Ledger got the academy award for it. He was excellent as the Joker.
