Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether you’ve already got a Valentine, or you’re still searching for one, this list of the best chick flicks will come in handy at some point.
In every relationship, you’re bound to have those lazy and enjoyable movie nights from time to time. The only problem is, of course, agreeing on a movie that you both will like.
Staying away from the stereotypical “shoot ’em up” and “tearjerker” extremes and finding a balance of the two is key. There are actually quite a few movies that both men and women thoroughly enjoy and consistently list on their favorites lists.
Top 5 Chick Flicks that Guys Like
“In Her Shoes” (Includes a heavy dose of a scantily-clad Cameron Diaz throughout.)
“When Harry Met Sally…” (It’s actually a pretty good movie, and Billy Crystal as a leading man in a romantic film gives you hope.)
“Love Actually” (Keira Knightley. If you need more motivation, there’s also several nude scenes of other women.)
“Lost in Translation” (Scarlett Johansson in all of her curvaceous (albeit clothed) glory.)
“Jerry Maguire” (Though shrouded in romanticism and high emotions, it’s still about a sports agent!)
Top 5 Guy Movies that Girls Like

Pick out one or all of these unisexual best chick flicks, and the two of you may end up making a special movie of your own (or, at least, acting out one of the steamy love scenes, minus the entire camera crew and director commentary).
