The last time I saw grandpa, we played baseball in the backyard. Well, we played "A League of their Own". He was Tom Hanks, I was everybody else.

The truth of the matter is, there is kind of an art to the chick flick. No, I'm not talking about the ones that are on the spectrum like "Is 'Hunger Games' a chick flick?", "Is 'Bridesmaids' a chick flick?" I'm talking about the ones that are ovaries-to-the-wall, estrogen-inducing, couldn't-be-mistaken-for-anything-else chick flicks. The same way an action film like "Harry Potter" is gender-neutral, but "Pacific Rim" is obviously a dick flick, which is like a chick flick, only the exact opposite. And that's also not to say men can't like chick flicks or women can't like dick flicks. But let's not kid ourselves, it's not boys who made the "Twilight" films a hit and it's not girls who made the "Transformers" films a hit. Hollywood is always going to market to repetitive demographics. When they find a pattern that keeps repeating, they're going to exploit the fuck out of it. But here's the thing: there's a lot of chick flicks out there that are really good. I don't care if it mostly stars women, "A League of Their Own" is fucking hilarious. I don't care if there's a lot of romance and kissing, "Princess Bride" still kicks fucking ass. As the years go on, we see more and more effort being put into what was originally thought to only be a niche market.
So Sophie's dads arrive, played by Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgård... Am I saying that right? Do I pronounce the other little "O"?... and is ecstatic to find that she has been thrown into an adventure of "Choose Your Own DILF".
