I have no beef with the concept of the “chick flick.” Movie genres are supposed to have formulas they follow, otherwise they wouldn’t be genres. And if one of those formulas is intended to predominately appeal to the sensibilities of the female gender, who am I to judge? That said, chick flicks are, by definition, going to be enjoyed more by chicks than they would be by the fellas. Antonia’s Line, a Dutch movie about a woman and her descendants, doesn’t strictly fit the formula of the “chick flick” per se, since chick flicks usually center around romance and relationships, but let me tell you, this movie was not made for the dudes.
Rating: Women will like it more than men, and that’s . . . okay.
