Everyone loves a good movie, especially one that can make you laugh, cry, and smile all within roughly two hours. Chick flicks definitely fall into that category of film. But what is classified as a chick flick? The conception of this type of film is quite broad, but can essentially be anything that includes romance, humor, friendship, loss, and learning of some kind. There are no superheroes or action sequences, just raw human emotion.
There are also sub-categories within the entire spectrum of the chick flick genre. For example, romantic comedies; the movies in which relationships are depicted in a humorous way and are for the most part lighthearted. Then there are best-friend chick flicks, which encapsulate the entire essence of female friendship, whether it be that they’re growing into adults or just learning to find their place in the world. These movies are less about the romantic elements and more about platonic friendships. There’s also the category of chick flicks which are basically just movies we watch when we need a good cry: the ones that reflect real life and can break down any person.
