Chick Flicks Alert...

Two for the Tissue Box
Well, admittedly, I am selective about my chick flicks, but 2 upcoming movies have me curious enough to pay attention.

The first is the The Ugly Truth ( a romantic comedy starring Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler. Heigl plays a romantically challenged morning show producer who gets schooled in relationships by her chauvanistic correspondent (Butler). He believes men are only interested in one thing, she disagrees -- the games ensue...with unexpected results. Opens July 24
Admittedly, I will see this because of Butler, who had me at the 300, and cinced it with PS-I Love You.

Up next is a romantic drama The Time Traveler's Wife, ( starring Rachel McAdams (The Notebook, Mean Girls, Wedding Crashers) and Eric Bana (Star Trek, The Other Bolyen Girl) and based on the best selling novel by Audrey Neffenegger. A love story that "transcends time" -- Clare has been in love with Henry her whole life, despite the fact he suffers from a rare genetic anomoly that has him skipping through the span of his lfe without warning when he will come or go. Opens August 14
I think Rachel McAdams is the cutest thing in movies right now. Somewhere in Time fans should sit up & take a look...reminiscent of the past classic with a fresh take.

  1. I think I'll pass on "PS", but I am a little stoked to see "The Time Traveller's Wife". I'm such a sucker for sci-fi romances - "Somewhere In Time", "What Dreams May Come" and the like. I'll probably get all teary-eyed at this one just like I do at the other two, but hey - it opens up the sinuses quite nicely.

    (And I agree about Rachel McAdams, she's painfully adorable.)
