Ultimate Chick Flick Winner!


I had a great time watching the four Chick Flick finalist movies. The best part was actually watching them with my hubby! Speaking of my hubby, he is totally chick flicked out. I probably won't be able to get him to watch another chick flick with me for at least a year or more. But it was quite fun while the fest lasted.

After watching each movie, my hubby wrote pages and pages of notes about what he liked or didn't like, what made it a good chick flick, etc. I actually enjoyed reading his notes and thoughts about each movie.

As a quick review the four finalists were:

Ever After

Miss Potter

Somewhere in Time

While You Were Sleeping

After a few days filled with much debating, he has finally narrowed it down to the one movie he thinks was the best chick flick of the lot.

And the winner of the Ultimate Chick Flick contest is . . .

Miss Potter!




We had two different people who nominated Miss Potter. So both names went into a hat and my one year old chose the winner.

Congratulations to . . .

Robin T.!

She will be receiving a $15 Megaplex Theatres gift card. We hope you enjoy your night out!

I'd like to thank everyone who participated by nominating and voting for movies. I'd especially like to thank my hubby for his willingness and good humor as the Ultimate Chick Flick Judge.

That is the one movie I haven't ever seen...I'll have to check it out. Did your husband like it? I know he picked it as the 'ultimate chick flick', but I guess that doesn't necessarily mean he liked it. :)

De - It's actually the movie he liked the best out of all four movies. He really, really liked it. When you watch it, be sure to keep a box of tissues nearby. :)

Yippee, I knew you guys would like it. I'm glad to see it win.

It's an interesting story, but not a "happy ever after" ending. And my husband was the one who watched it, so it's not TOTALLY chick flick. Some guys will enjoy it for the time frame in which it takes place.

Nice contest, Danyelle, even if my favorite, "You've Got Mail", didn't win.

Okay, wait. "You've Got Mail" WAS on the list, wasn't it? :)

Danyelle Ferguson said...

Robin - You're welcome!

Amy - You were right! :)

Gaynell & Cindy - You guys are so funny. I love You've Got Mail, too. Unfortunately, it didn't get enough votes to make it to the final round. Darn.

Have a great day everyone!

Robin said...

A name and a movie!

Ooh, Robin - Welcome to Blogging world!

Bre Bell said...

I'd be interested to see his notes on what makes a chick flick!

Danyelle Ferguson said...

Hey Bre - he actually started putting together his notes and a blog for guys about what a chick flick is, etc. It was actually pretty funny. When (of if) he gets it finished, I'll be sure to post it up on QOTC.

This was fun to follow along with. And what a nice guy your hubby is (but I already knew that.)

Danyelle Ferguson said...

Thanks Tristi - it was fun, wasn't it? I think I'll have to do more contests. Wait - I'm starting a new one tomorrow! :)

That was pretty fun! The chick flick that a guy likes too. I want to try that with all my guy friends now--it's a good excuse to get them to watch chick flicks with me, ha ha!

Stephanie - That's a great idea! Let me know how it works out!

Danyelle,

I don't think it was on the original list of movies that we all suggested but I just remembered yesterday a movie that would have been great. Have you seen The Importance of Being Earnest with Colin Firth? It is awesome and is definitely a chick flick that guys, especially guys like your husband since he is a writer, can appreciate because of the quirky dialog.

I haven't seen that movie. I've thought about renting it several times, but never did. I'll have to watch it now! Thanks for the recommendation!
