Okay- so you are well past the first few dates scene and are looking for some cozy, comfy indoor time with your boyfriend! What pops to your head- a box of pizza, chilled beer, a snug blanket and a movie that plays on screen while you sneak moments to kiss and cuddle, right? But you wouldn’t want to watch his action picks and he sure ain’t getting in on any of your mush-sagas? How do you find a balance, then? By picking chick flicks your guy will love too! Yes, they exist!
1. 500 Days Of Summer (2009)
Why will guys like it- Unlike the boy-meets-girl, falls-in-love, gets-her-after-hardships and lives-happily-ever-after kind of love story, this offbeat and honest tale of a broken heart, poured out in flashbacks by the hero (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) whose heart was broken by Zooey Deschanel’s character is a refreshingly REAL dose of romance!
2. P.S. I Love You (2007)
Why will guys love it – A reverso of sorts of the conventional ‘chick-flick’ genre, this movie’s a must watch to explore how love finds a way to be ever-present. Plus, the splendid presence of Gerard Butler.
