I like action movies too. I just can't stand horror movies. I love suspense/thrillers, but all the blood, guts, walking dead, etc get to me.

I figured I had the ultimate chick flick collection, but I don't have any of the movies listed so far.

Not really... If there is something in a theatre that I really want to see, I'll sneak out to the late late show on a weekday... Like Wednesday night at 10:30pm. She's cool with that. I don't do it too often... but for instance, I wanted to see the Matrix movies, and she wasn't so interested, so I kissed her goodnight and headed for the theatre. It was great because not too many people hit the late late show during the week, so I practically have the theatre to myself.

Plus, she's into this thing called "Stampin' Up," so sometimes she'll stamp her cards while watching a chick flick. Usually, I'll be upstairs bugging you guys, or working on OMane stuff.

Okay, a chick flick, to me, is a romantic comedy, a romantic drama, or anything that makes you cry. And no, that doesn't mean you're crying because you have to watch it.

We have a theater in town that gives you a stamp for every movie ticket you purchase. After getting so many stamps, you can redeem them for free stuff like popcorn, candy, soda, or a free movie ticket. I thought that was what he meant by it.

Love Actually, Emma, Notting Hill, Shakespeare in Love. I have NEVER seen (and pretty much refuse to watch) Pretty Woman, Dirty Dancing, Ya-Ya Sisterhood, and Drumline.
