That would be me, I figured, as I looked over The 20 Worst Chick Flicks of All Time and realized I hadn't seen a single one of them*. I've never seen any movie with the word "Sisterhood" in the title. The only movie I've seen with "Tomatoes" in the title started with "Attack of the Killer." I've never seen Titanic. I haven't even seen any part of Titanic**.
But as I was reading the list and the descriptions of the hideousness thereof, I thought, I wonder if chicks have a similar list of "Guy Movies"? Not a list of bad action movies per se, but a list of movies that chicks hate but that guys think are great?
So I looked at my collection of "guy movies" and tried to figure out what my wife hates. Not Commando or Die Hard. She loved True Lies, too. Not anything of the horror-comedy genre (e.g. Tremors, Eight-Legged Freaks, Evolution); she's fine with all that. She doesn't dislike sports movies; she'll watch The Waterboy and Caddyshack, and has even suffered through The Replacements a few times. It's not even, surprisingly enough, cheezy old Sci-Fi; she quite liked "the Day the Earth Stood Still."
And then I found them: she hates poorly-made movies featuring overgrown monsters (e.g. Empire of the Ants, Night of the Lepus, Piranha) and anything overdubbed from Chinese where guys can run up walls. And she hates Heavy Metal. Especially Heavy Metal.
Are those, then, the worst Guy Flicks of all time?
* Ok, so I saw like 2 minutes of "Dirty Dancing," but in my own defense, I was tricked mercilessly. I saw Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey and I was like, "Weird, I don't remember this part of Red Dawn..." I was horrified at what then transpired, but simultaneously relieved that what was happening was indeed not in Red Dawn.
** I did once see Stone Cold Steve Austin standing atop his truck yelling, "I'm the king of the world." That was pretty funny.
