It’s that time of year again, Chick-Flick season. Well, for me it is. I love rom-coms and romantic movies in general but I can’t say the same for most of the men I know.

I have been conducting some TOP SECRET research at home to find Chick-Flickesque movies that a guy won’t complain about.6 Chick Flicks He Won't Hate

So far we have 6 (count ’em 6!!) films that fit the classic chick-flick genre yet aren’t torturous for the male gender. A couple were actually requested with very few chick-flick references made throughout.

These movies have been the salvation from those awkward “What do you want to watch?”, “I don’t care, what do you want to watch?”, “I can watch anything, what do you want to watch?” moments. They’re not {even remotely} new movies but I consider them to be in the “Movies I can happily watch multiple times” bin.

Bonus to watching older movies: You can usually find them on Netflix, Prime, Vudu, or something similar.

Check ’em out and let me know what I missed (I’m always in the market for new movies!)


On the outside this looks like your typical, sappy rom-com. I mean, come on… there’s a wedding for goodness’ sake! Dig a little deeper though and the hilarious cast is exactly what takes a rom-com to the men-approved section. The potty humor is perfect for keeping the guys occupied while the unbreakable bonds of sisterhood and love give women what they look for in a good romantic comedy.

Along Came Polly

Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston are an unlikely duo that really work great together. Throw in Debra Messing, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Alec Baldwin and the love and laughter just don’t quit.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Funny, witty, and upbeat – this is one of my favorite movies ever. Kristen Bell vs. Mila Kunis – what man (or woman) doesn’t love that setup?! Jason Segel’s brief full-frontal aside, there’s nothing your guy won’t love about this movie.


I wasn’t crazy about this movie but the fact that Lebron James has a cameo meant watching it was mandatory. There’s non-stop dry, potty humor. Amy Schumer plays her part well, with only a few cringe-worthy scenes. There isn’t much romance involved until later in the movie, but the sex / comedy is spread throughout.

There’s Something About Mary

The movie that taught us all to check labels and avoid hair gel is a great movie for both sexes. Cameron Diaz is fabulous in every role she pursues and is a favorite among men. Matt Dillon and Ben Stiller are the perfect pair to vie for her affections.

Crazy, Stupid, Love

Ryan Gosling is a (kind of) douchey player who teaches a heartbroken Steve Carell a thing or two about playing the game. Emma Stone throws Gosling for a loop while causing more problems for Carell (no spoilers!) This is a good, well-rounded movie that doesn’t play favoritism to either sex.
