But That Doesn't Mean They're For Women Only


The term can have negative connotations but I tend to believe there's nothing wrong with "Chick Flicks." Label a film a "Chick Flick" and people will know exactly what you're describing.

This film was so well-received it inspired a sequel - which, unfortunately, didn't go over quite as well as expected (the sequel isn't included in this Top 10 List). Nevertheless, you can't hold the sequel against the original. Terms of Endearment is an amazing film that features outstanding performances by Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger.
