Top 5 Acceptable Chick Flicks for Men

Last year I made a list of top 5 acceptable chick flicks for men to watch on the Dad Wilder Podcast. These movies are acceptable to watch when football is not on, and you are hanging with your wife or girlfriend on the couch. Also, you can only watch these movies when they are on TV AND Goodfellas, The Departed or Training Day are not on at the same time. I didn't make the rules up; I just follow them.

My honorable mentions are The Notebook (quote from Heely's "Ryan Gosling's bone structure gets me every time"), Dirty Dancing (The tasteless wonder's all time favorite movie) and finally Pitch Perfect (only the first one).

Now, here is my top 5!


Lindsay Lohan's glory days. We were debating on the best looking mean girl on the podcast (link above), and I said Lacey Chabert. Janitor said Rachel McAdams and Heely's voted Tina Fey. No one is wrong here.


You cannot go wrong with Justin Timberlake. He can sing, dance and act. He is your equivalent of your 5 tool baseball player for entertainment. Also, Mila Kunis is not bad to look at, and also a great actor.


Heath Ledger and Joseph Gordon-Levitt kill it. Very underrated. Also, Alex Mack was also a very underrated show growing up!


I laughed my ass off throughout the entire movie. From the drunk on a plane scene to Melissa McCarthy stealing all the puppies. It is greatness.


I grew up watching this movie with my Grandma so it does have some sentimental value which bumps it up a few notches. Tom Hanks is great in this. If you have not seen this (Janitor), go watch it now!

I know this list can be controversial because there are a ton of chick flicks. Leave a comment below on something I missed!
