Let’s review the top ten chick flick of the year (2010). And for those who have not seen any of these, it’s about time that you should. So go grab the popcorn, the drinks and do not forget the Kleenex!
At number 10, a comeback movie of Christina Aguilera where she played the role of Ali. Ali is a singer from a small-town who takes her shot in getting her dream. She ventured out to Los Angeles and was hired as a waitress instead of a performer in a neo-burlesque nightclub owned by Tess (Cher). But this small-town girl did not give up, until she impressed Tess and made her a star.
9. When In Rome
Starring Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel, this chick flick will not turn you down at number nine. Beth (Kristen Bell) is an ambitious New Yorker who is cynical of love. She went to Rome to attend to her sister’s wedding and found out about this fountain of love where people wish to find their true love. Insolently she took the coins from it (which she thinks is foolish) and then finds herself running away from anonymous men who are madly in love with her. Apparently she discovers that they were the men who owned the coins that she took. As the story runs, a reporter (Josh Duhamel) teaches her that true love does happen.
8. Life As We Know It
In number eight, Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel starred in this heart-tickling film and were the couple assigned to raise a kid. Life as We Know It is about Holly (Katherine Heigl) a caterer and Eric (Josh Duhamel) a major network’s sports director. They have a bad first date but ended up to be a family. When Sophie’s parents died in an accident, Holly and Eric were singled out from a list of godparents to raise the orphan baby Sophie.
7. The Switch
At number seven, Kassie (Jennifer Aniston) is a middle-aged single and has prepped for artificial insemination by looking for the perfect sperm donor. Wally Mars (Jason Bateman) Kassie’s narcissistic best friend insists on donating his own sperm, but Kassie is not convinced that it is such a bad idea. In the insemination party, a very drunk Wally accidentally spilled the sperm and replaced it with his own before blacking out. Watch what happens next.
6. Date Night
The very funny Tina Fey (Claire) and equally funny Steve Carell (Phil) lands on number six. Date Night has more comedy than romance– it is about a married couple going to a “normal” quiet dinner to save their marriage but gets into trouble as they become victims of mistaken identity for stealing another couple’s table. If they’ll turn out alive at the end of the movie they might have a shot in saving their marriage.
5. Leap Year
A very predictable but very interesting love story that can still keep you fastened on your seats is the movie by Amy Adams and Adam Scott at number five. This is about a woman (Amy Adams) who is heading to Ireland to propose to his long time boyfriend after a false alarm of wedding proposal by him. But the trip went to all the wrong places and her plane landed miles short to Ireland and hired a driver to get her to Ireland. Her lucks seem to be off and her trip went from just a no good to worst. But the luck that she is looking is not the luck she should have. Could she catch her love?
4. Going The Distance
What if the love that you know is worth keeping is not at the same time zone as yours. Would you still keep it? Drew Barrymore and Justin Long land at number four with Going the Distance. Erin (Drew Barrymore) charms Garrett (Justin Long) with her wit over a beer and found the spark they have both been looking for in ages. But after the spark turned to be a full blown summer fling, Erin heads home to San Francisco. Both kept the relationship but realized that one should go the distance or stay to keep the relationship.
3. Love And Other Drugs
At number three, Love and Other Drugs gets everyone addicted. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal (Jamie) who is a pharmaceutical representative climbing his way up the ladder of success, he soon met and fell-in-love with Maggie (Anne Hathaway). Maggie has Parkinson’s disease that Jamie should deal with too if he wants to be with Maggie.
2. Letters To Juliet
An American girl went to Verona, Italy (where Romeo and Juliet first met) and found a letter from 1957. People go to Verona to visit a wall where letters of inquiry about love are placed in hope of answers. This girl searched for the writer of the letter from 1957 in the hope of helping her find her long lost love. Helping finding someone’s long lost love, the American girl did not expect to find a love of her own.
1. Eat Pray Love
Love finds you when you least expect it. Julia Roberts plays Liz Gilbert who had it all but then realized that she did not want the life that she has.
