Movie Meme – Chick Flick

by Hannah

This is my first week contributing to Hannah’s Movie Meme over at Metal Mummy. I thought it best to have a look through at the other posts beforehand as I didn’t want to bang on about the same film as everyone else. Of course I would have been extremely predictable and picked the ultimate in my eyes, the epic Dirty Dancing.

Like most I took a little while to ponder this one and many I came up with didn’t fall under the category of ‘Chick Flick’. I am sure however there will be plenty of opportunity to dredge up some other favourite films in future meme’s!

My chosen flick is Love Actually. The film is pure cheese and warms the cockles of my heart. Now I don’t normally buy DVD’s and never have, once I have seen a film I don’t wish to watch it again over and over (excluding a few classics), but I was given Love Actually and it was a godsend. Over 3 years ago we moved into our new flat just before Christmas only to find out we wouldn’t have any signal for the television for 6 weeks, aargh.

So….this film (along with the Holiday) became the background sound most days as it was about Christmas and had Christmassy music. I love all the individual scenario’s that unfold and eventually tie together at the end. The airport scene at the end just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling! So this gets my vote simply for the fact I will watch it again and again and I am still not sick of it!

This is one of my husband's favourite films – he has TWO copies of it on dvd because he likes watching it on plane journeys and once left his original copy in England so had to buy a new one for US flights….I despair 😉

It was a good film reminds me of the early days with hubby, and I thought the airport scene was ingenious

Great film, me and Mr M love this one. I cry every time when she discovers the necklace in his pocket and gets given the CD. Sniff.

I love it. I love chick flicks. Notting Hill was good too. For something more recent, try "The Rebound"!

I love this film, and love that fact it's a good old british film too! Think it is very clever .

Good choice,

great choice! I too have the DVD, I just like watching it for the airport scene as it takes me back to the emotional very first meeting between my parents and Sam 11 years ago when he was 2 weeks old *sniff*…and of course Hugh Grant….but I do prefer him in About a Boy, another must watch cheesy chick flick!
