Best Chick Movie Ever

"French Kiss"

Yes, absolutely the best.  There are others, I know.  Like, "Hope Floats," and "While You Were Sleeping" and "Shag" - oh yeah.  Also, "Serendipity" and "Sleepless in Seattle."

Yeah, we can debate it.  But when I come across "French Kiss" on cable, it reminds me of when I was driving through the Tuscany region of Italy with my best friend in the entire world, quoting lines from the movie while searching for a little tiny restaurant, and I can recall the look of the sun washing over the buildings....yup.  It takes me right back, and it's just sublime.....

My friend's name is myfriendTeri.   Because for the last 11 years, I've said to family and other friends - "yeah, I went to Italy with myfriendTeri."  Or, "MyfriendTeri is so funny!"  Or, "MyfriendTeri is coming to see me."  They KNOW she's my friend, they've met her, she's shared holidays, I don't have any other Teris in my life....yet, I add this qualifier.

Is it because I'm so proud that she's my friend - pick me pick me! - or because I need to somehow 'splain everything?

Not sure.  All I know is that she rocks, and everyone I know now calls her myfriendTeri.


Best ever movie.  Go ahead and debate me though - really.  Let me know your favorites and quote some stuff.

BTW - new blogs on the 'Run Scamper' list - yup - look over there.  On the right.  See?  Get there.  Yo Mama and Bananas and Toddlers and Happy Meals and Happy Hours.

Wow, thanks so much for adding me to your blogroll!! Consider yourself added to mine too!

I have to admit that I didn't care for French Kiss. But then, if I had been to Tuscany I would probably love it too. Did you like Under the Tuscan Sun? The book was way better, but the movie had beautiful scenery.

Anyhoo, my favorite chick flick is When Harry Met Sally. Love it, own it, want to marry it.

Ang -And there's chemistry! That's what makes FK so great - it's the chemistry. You can see the moment on the train when he realizes that he's fallen for her.

Amber, you have to pretend to smoke the cigarette when you say that..."you people (sucking inhale, fingers to mouth) make my ass twitch...."

Miss Yvonne -French Kiss is actually set in France, but when I was in Italy with MFT, we were doing lines from the movie.

Ah yes...Italy, Ditaly, Ditaly!! (singing a made up tune at the top of our lungs...driving down the Autostrada). Good stuff, good stuff!

French Kiss - THE BEST Chick flick ever!! "Beautiful, gorgeous, wish you were here!". Can never see it enough.
