I want this book for my bookcase! Terrific guide to 50 essential Chick Flicks. You cannot remember them all when you go to the lirbary or video shop so make sure you photocopy the list a tthe front of the book before you return it. Better yet - search the catalogue and request a hold on the spot.

The book starts with a brief history , then devotes half a page or so to each movie.

If you love women's movies, you'll love this book!
