Rarely, my DH goes out of town & I love to indulge in a chick flick or a romantic comedy. Last week I picked "The Englishman who went up a hill and came down a mountain" (a friend's suggestion) and was very bored and disappointed. I'd love to hear your suggestions! I'd prefer some that have been out in the past 2-3 years...if it's a new release, odds are I haven't seen it. Thanks!

Welcome to the board! So you want chick flicks, huh? Let's see....

About a Boy - very cute kid, and Hugh Grant!

Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood - Sandra Bullock, Moms and daughters... Sweet, touching and funny.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding - You don't have to be Greek to enjoy this one.

Kate and Leopold, but you may have seen that. It was out in 2001 - If you haven't seen it, it's really sweet. And Hugh Jackman is in it!

That's all I can think of. Personally, when my dh has to be away a few days, I head for the horror movies, LOL!

Okay, anyone? jump on in here! I know there are more chick flicks out there!

Ok here are a few that I have that I really like.

Notting Hill-Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant, very funny and sweet

Playing by Heart- One of my fav. movies has Gillian Anderson, Sean Connery, Anthony Edwards, Angelina Jolie, Jay Mohr, Pyan Phillppie, Dennis Quaid, Jon Stewart, and Madeleine Stowe. And great look at relationships through different generations

You've got mail- Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan

Miss Congeniality- Sandra Bullock, Michael Caine, Benjamin Bratt and Candice Bergen. Another one of my fav.'s Very funny movie of a FBI angent undercover in a beauty pagent.

Erin Brockovich- Julia Roberts

Ok those are a few I really like, I hope it has helped some.
