Have you seen any good chick flicks lately?
Probably, for most guys, the thought of it is quite scary.
Here's how it works. Chick (a baby chicken) is a term that used to be used to refer to women, particularly in the hippy 60's.
If you were going to the flicks, you'd be going to watch a movie. The word flick comes from flicker when light flashes very quickly. This is because that's how the movies looked in the early silent movie days.
So what's a chick flick? One that appeals more to women but you may drag your reluctant husband or boyfriend along - he's just hoping he won't be spotted by his mates!
You can also have chick lit. which is literature aimed at women - Sophie Kinsella, for example.
OK, back to chick flicks - nothing defines the genre more clearly than this. Guys - look away now - yuk!!
