Chick Flicks: February 2014

chick flick – (n.) A movie that targets a primarily female audience.
(e.g., most rom-coms, rom-drams, rom-droms and the like)
Note: Although commonly misconstrued as such, the term is not, in fact, a pejorative or a synonym for
The Notebook.
What’s In A Name?: Re-Defining “CHICK FLICK”

February has long been a favorite month of mine. Why? Well, it’s certainly not because I love its icy demeanor. (Can we please transplant NYC south of the Mason-Dixon line already?!) Nonetheless, a few factors work in February’s favor. First (and foremost), February is the month of my birth. Second, February is home to Valentine’s Day…the passing of which marks the beginning of Easter candy season, the greatest candy season of the year. Third (and most pertinent to our common interest), because of Valentine’s Day, February often plays host to an unequal share of a year’s chick flicks. (Or, at least it tends to feel that way when recent months—ex. last summer and December 2013—have come and gone without their typical chick-flick glut.)

I am happy to report that February 2014 suffers no such lack of chick flicks. Here’s the 411 on 12 chick flicks hitting theaters and VOD/digital February 7-21. (Oddly, for a month boasting so many chick flicks, not one debuts on the month’s final Friday (February 28).)

P.S. For anyone interested in tracking chick flicks’ MPAA ratings after our R-rated January, February’s numbers are…Not Rated (NR): 2, PG-13: 4, and R: 6.
