2011 had no chick-flicks that were not the same old thing and we’ll admit that we’re disappointed. 2010’s offerings were ok, but we thought that there was a lot of room for improvement that we just didn’t see in 2011. Instead we’ve got a bunch of predictable repeats. Let’s review, shall we?
There’s Nothing More Romantic than Meaningless Sex: The Best Chick Flicks of 2011

5Something Borrowed

Based on the chick-lit by the same name, this is the story of Rachel, a young lawyer who sleeps with her best friend’s fiancé. Fortunately, Rachel and fiancé should have been together in the first place and the best-friend is self centered and overbearing so it’s all ok. Instead of characters, we’re given caricatures and just have to hope that the original book developed them more than the movie can. In the meantime, we’re asked to relate to universally beautiful, wealthy people with successful and prestigious careers, without seeing much else to them. We’re told a lot of things that are supposed to make us think that everyone is deeper than they look and that certain behaviors are excusable because of emotional scarring but we’re not actually shown much of it. The result is characters that just seem mean.

Can you think of any chick-flicks that show a better side of 2011? Let’s hear it!
