Chick Flick Recovery

One Day

It's a nice Saturday afternoon when I met up with a girl-friend to watch the movie, "One Day" with Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. It wasn't what I expected and definitely not for the light hearted.

This movie will not make you laugh out loud like "Something Borrowed" or "Friends With Benefits" but it will tug at your emotions and capture your attention. Walking out of the theatre.. it's a feeling of damned if you do and damned if you don't when it comes to matters of the heart. Ladies, do your man a favor and leave him at home for this one.

I really thought we were going to come out of the theatre laughing but instead we found our way to pizza and football for the perfect post chick flick recovery. If only Susie Cakes would have stayed open longer, I would have fully redeemed myself with Mel when it comes to choosing sad movies. She still doesn't let me forget that I "made her" watch "Marley & Me".

My favorite line from the movie read, "She made you decent and you made her happy." Maybe just as good as my favorite movie line of all time from Notting Hill, "I'm also just a girl standing in front of a boy asking him to love her." What can I say? I'm a gal .. I like pink.. that's what movies are for though fully aware that life is not a chick flick. Bonne nuit.
