Winter Chick Flick Club Picks

I totally dropped the ball, yet again, on my Chick Flick Club. To be fair, Christy and I put together a super fun Movie Night a couple of weeks ago that my sweet friend Michelle hosted...but it's not the same as hitting the theater with the a bucket of popcorn (or something chocolate, if your name is Amanda), some caffeine to keep you awake, and a few good friends to laugh through the previews with.
I'll share more about hosting a movie night at home another time, but I thought it would be fun to do a little round-up of movies that are on my radar. I tend to go for romantic comedies...there's too much seriousness going on in the world to weep through a movie on a girls' night out!

Must-see:

One for the Money (Katherine Heigl and some very hot scruffy-ish guy)
I finished reading the first book in Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, so I can't wait to see this one. Looks like a fun movie:




The Hunger Games (Jennifer Lawrence)
Another wonderful series, this one by Suzanne Collins. I don't normally like stories about dirty, down-trodden people, but this series is an excellent story. It is geared for teens, but the themes of power, reality and entertainment, class, sacrifice, etc. etc. will draw you in. Can't wait to see it played out on the screen.



Maybe?


This Means War (Reese Witherspoon, two hunky guys that can beat people up)
I love Reese Witherspoon, and I think she's a wonderful actress, which is why this one made the list.



"Meh"


Gone (Amanda Seyfreid)
This looks like it's scary enough to make me want to sit locked in my house with a gun trained on the door, never letting my kids out in the fresh air again. So, I could pass on this one.



The Vow (Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum- hubba hubba)
Looks a little too lovey-dovey mushy serious for a girls' night. But hello? Channing Tatum?



Anything you're looking forward to seeing this winter? Do you like to go out to the movies with friends?

  2. Yes! Love going to the movies with friends. Love my Chick Flick crew. We saw One for the Money and it was cute. We also saw The Descendants and The Artist. Not sure what's next but I can't wait for The Hunger Games!

  3. Honestly I don't go to the movies all that often. Girls Night Out is usually dinner and shopping, and Jason only allows me one chick flick at the movie a year:) Just kidding, but we usually see something we both would like. I did see a preview for the Reese Witherspoon movie and it looked pretty good!

  4. I know it's been a while but my friends and I had a girls night in December. We saw New Year's Eve... It was really good!

  5. I have got to get to the movies! The three month old finally takes a bottle, so I'm close. Of course with the DVR, I don't watch commercials so unless it was advertised during the superbowl, I've never heard of it!

  6. I love the Stephanie Plum series, but ONe for the money was not very good. It was meeh. I'd save my money and wait till it comes to Redbox.

  10. I LOVE the Stephanie Plum books! I think as long as you don't expect the movie to be as good as the book, it's a fun chick flick. I did a quick comparison of the book and movie at http://www.annehogan.net/2012/01/one-for-the-money-book-vs-movie/

  11. I REALLY wanna see The Vow!

    Have you seen the poster on Pinterest that has a super hot picture of Channing, and it says, "If I woke up from a coma and Channing Tatum said he was my husband - I wouldn't question it." ?

    I LOVE it...cracks me up!

  12. Just finished reading Book 1 of the Hunger Games. Starting on book 2 ASAP! :) I can't wait to see how certain scenes in the book come to life in the movie! I also read One for the Money... Need to get on with that series too before the other movies start coming out!

I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
