8 August Chick Flicks – WHAT IF, LIFE AFTER BETH, IF I STAY and More

chick flick – (n.) A movie that targets a primarily female audience, is by women, by women-for-women, lady-centric, and/or just lady-friendly.
(e.g., most rom-coms, rom-drams, rom-droms and the like)
NOTE: Although commonly misconstrued as such, the term does not automatically exclude
non-lady audiences, and is not, in fact, a pejorative or a synonym for
The Notebook.
