What is a chick flick?
The film industry has defined and classified all its productions into genres so it can reach out to its targeted audience. Movies and films which are targeted at a female audience or with female protagonists are termed as chick flicks.
The main marks of a chick flick?
Ever since the 40’s this genre has been widely explored by Hollywood and every other movie industry in existence. With no specific definition it can be simply called as a commercial movie that appeals to female audiences.
Usually the movie poster defines the chick flick and has two main elements; one could assume a pink touch or even some fancy or colorful lettering. The female protagonist would be surely in the foreground and probably the male love interest might decorate the background.
Those of you who fancy chick flicks would know that it hardly gives any attention to any special effects and is more dialogue oriented. It rarely shows violence and is more about relationships. You might mostly see a female protagonist who fights against some kind of inconsistency or disparity and is a victim of relationships.
These movies revolve around the concept of ‘Happily ever after’, once true love is found. Some of the best chick flicks like What If, The Wedding Partner, 27 Dresses are just a few examples. Quite a large percentage of these chick flick films might just end in a wedding scene and smiles and tearful joys all round.
Other times, they might just end up proving a complicated and yet simple statement. Strong central female characters with some supporters are given concentration. However, as the movie carries on, the lady has to adapt and change to find true love. The Prince and Me, Maid in Manhattan and Sabrina are a few examples which showcase this kind of love.
All in all such movies are just plain fun to watch.
