Next week My Sister’s Keeper will hit theatres and I have a handful of double passes to give away to my readers so they can check it out. Based on the novel by Jodi Picoult, it stars Cameron Diaz, Alec Baldwin, Sofia Vassilieva and Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine), and is directed by Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook).

I also have a special sneak peak of the Pete Yorn single, “Don’t Wanna Cry” which is featured in the film.

Pete Yorn – Don’t Wanna Cry

  1. paulo says:

    i would have to vote for The Notebook.

  2. n* says:

    My all time chick flick movie would have to be “Before Sunset” & “Before Sunrise”. It was the most emotional and meaningful movie for me.

  3. Erin Hochstein says:

    My vote would have to be Fried Green Tomatoes.

  4. Janis says:

    If we’re going with ALL TIME favourite, it’s gotta be Pretty Woman.

  5. Jason Kurylo says:

    Chick flicks fall into several categories for me…

    My all time fave romantic comedy is head’n’shoulders above the rest: When Harry Met Sally. It’s the model upon which every subsequent romcom has been built, and Meg Ryan’s hair in the final ballroom scene is absolutely epic!

    Romantic fantasies come and romantic fantasies go, but The Princess Bride lives on forever.

    Oh, and gal pal bonding stories? Thelma & Louise, no question.

  6. Miss604 says:

    @ Jason – I walked down the aisle to Storybook Love from The Princess Bride *sigh*

  7. Donna says:

    My all time favorite chick flick is Beaches with Bette Middler!

  8. Linda Bilben says:

    Fried Green Tomatoes when she dies of cancer – I bawl everytime -and I have seen the movie over 20 times easily.

  9. Erin says:

    Love Actually is my favourite – romantic and funny, but with intersecting storylines that show the wide range of “love” as we experience it: puppy love, the love of a man for his recently deceased wife, an unrequited love for a friend’s wife, love that reaches across language/culture barriers, love versus duty, love in the face of infidelity.

  10. priyan says:

    heard of dat movie….wish 2 watch it !

  11. Darren says:

    That song title is kind of ironic, because this badboy looks like a total weep-fest.

  12. Jessica says:

    Practical Magic.
    Loved the soundtrack, and loved the sister / girl bonding theme throughout. And in the end, she gets her guy! The one she’d always dreamt and wished for! How can you beat that.

  13. Alex says:

    My pick would be Runaway Bride featuring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts.

  14. Yasmin Abraham says:

    My all time favourite chick flick is Love Actually. So many amazing characters and great story lines of how love can be displayed in so many different ways.

    My favourite scene is when Colin Firth’s character goes back to Portugal after learning Portugese to find his house keeper whome he’s never spoken a word of English to.


  15. My favourite chick flick of all time is The Notebook. It’s just so romantic. I hope for a love story like that!

  16. Jenny says:

    The Wedding Singer and Love Actually

  17. Maryanne says:

    Beaches – I was 12 saw it with by best girlfriends at the time, had the soundtrack – the whole nine yards!


  18. Lyndsey says:

    My favorite girly flick of all time would have be The Notebook. I actually don’t watch many, but that one pulled at my heart strings. I also liked Before Sunrise/ Before Sunset 😉

  19. Fedora F. says:

    I would have to say The Princess Bride-I mean c’mon, its such a classic! Also characters like Inigo Montoya make the love story funny at the same time.

  20. Lisette says:

    I’d have to say Love Actually my favorite part was when the guy goes to the girls house and…well I won’t say in case you haven’t seen it 😀 soo cute!!

  21. Heather S says:

    My favorite is Tristan + Isolde!

  24. CY says:

    Four Weddings and a Funeral

  25. The Notebook as to be handsdown my favorite chick flick of all time. The story is amazing, funny, and moving and leaves you hoping for the same kind of love in your life.

  26. Hayley says:

    Mine would have to be Ever After…the costumes, the setting, the romance….its perfect <3

  27. Rachel says:

    Fried Green Tomatoes

  28. Tara says:

    My all time favorite emotional chick flick would have to be A Walk to remember, Its a great story of a girl who is living with leukemia, it was in recession and acts up again after her body no longer responded to treatment, she starts changing a guys life after he messes up badly when hanging with friends, all his friends notice the change and he does to, and he starts falling for her, and she tells him not to.

  29. Shellie Wetrick says:

    The NoteBook

  30. Christine says:

    Love Actually was one of my all-time favorites, too, but then I’m just a huge Colin Firth fan and I thought that story line was very sweet. Yasmin, the house where he and his Portuguese housekeeper met is actually in the south of France, and the town he goes back to is Marseille, France where there is apparently a good-sized Portuguese population. It’s the Marseille airport where he throws that hilarious jumping up and down fit over having to give up the cab to an older woman.

  31. Katy Lin says:

    just one! there are so many! Somewhere In Time, You’ve Got Mail, Little Women, The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, The Devil Wears Prada, I could go on and on! I love a good chick flick! 🙂

  32. Dee says:

    Well, I don’t know if I can say I have a favourite for all time but the last one I love the best is tied between Love Actually and PS. I Love You.
    = ]

  33. Preet says:

    Ever After-Cinderella story. It had every emotion you can think of.

  34. Sue says:

    I just love Gone With The Wind.

  35. Mandy Candy says:

    I think it would be “The Notebook” – teaches me never to give up on love 😉


  36. luc says:

    Pride and Prejudice!

  37. aria says:


  38. Kyler says:

    Surprise surprise, before I saw any of the comments, what came to mind was “The Notebook”. Clearly a success when it can get this many responses (I also know several guys who teared up during this “chick flick”).

  39. Wendy says:

    Another vote for When Harry Met Sally. CLASSIC.

  40. ereeves says:

    P.S. I Love You if my favorite chickflick

  41. Frank says:

    The English Patient
