Tales of Rejection and Complication: The Seminal Chick Flicks of 2009

4Confessions of a Shopaholic

This is the movie based on the best-selling epitome of Chick-Lit by the same name. This goes beyond chick flick to general silliness of mistaken identities, prat-falls and the adorable quirkiness of debilitating debt. Our heroine is Rebecca Brown, a talented writer whose dream is to write for a fashion magazine. Due to an unexpected twist of fate, she instead gets a job writing a column for a finance magazine despite having money management skills sent from hell. But fear not! The heroine does manage to prove herself and her abilities to be an independent and functional member of society before she and the hero finally get together.
Honorable Mention

Up
This animated movie is not a chick flick. It is a whimsical adventure about finding friendship in unexpected places. However, the back-story, which provides the motivation for the action is possibly the sweetest, most romantic ten minutes in all of movie-dom. We can think of no more genuine and straightforward portrayal of everyday true-love between everyday people and so we feel that it deserves to some recognition.


Think you know of a chick flick that can bring 2009 some credit? Let‘s hear it!
