Chick Flick Showdown – Round 1

Two chick flicks with a common theme/actor/plot are presented below. Your challenge is to choose which of the two is the best movie (or at least the most bearable). There is a correct answer in each case. For some match-ups the choice should be clear, for others it will be more subjective. Post your choices in the comment section. Answers will be posted in the near future for your consideration.

(If you need any hints, I have reviewed and provided very subjective analysis on each of these movies.)


50 First Dates vs. Blended (both featuring Adam Sandler)

About a Boy vs. Music and Lyrics (featuring Hugh Grant)

Serendipity vs. Runaway Bride (featuring indecisive women)

Still Alice vs. The Fault in Our Stars (featuring terminal illness)

Leap Year vs. When in Rome (featuring Americans falling in love in foreign countries)

The Perks of Being a Wallflower vs. If I Stay (featuring a heavy dose of teenage drama)

The Notebook vs. The Lucky One (based on novels by Nicholas Sparks)

Labor Day vs. Valentine’s Day (movies named after holidays)

Footloose (1984) vs. Footloose (2011) (featuring coordinated, rebellious, dancing teens)

Ghost vs. Dirty Dancing (featuring Patrick Swayze and the late 80’s/early 90’s)
