Why every chick flick is exactly the same

04.06.2010

If you've been dragged to a Nicholas Sparks movie by a significant other, or just went because you're a fan of true love, you’ve noticed that they all a fair amount of common threads running through them. So much so sometimes that it’s almost uncanny.

Well the observant folks at Cracked picked up on this as well, and came up with this graphic that illustrates just how true this is. Check it out below, and show it to your girlfriends who will clearly be rendered speechless at the logic.

Click on the picture to enlarge over at Cracked.

Extra Tidbit: I thought THE NOTEBOOK was decent except for the old people. The end of WALK TO REMEMBER was bullshit.

I read somewhere that there are no more original stories (they've all been told), it is the telling that is different... But then again, I despise "chick flicks"

It's as if I have finally found a clear way to tell my sister how much of an idiot she is for thinking this shit is original.

I will say The Notebook is a pretty good flick though, and I actually liked the old people in it.

The guy proclaims himself some kind of romantic revolutionary, and even criticizes Shakespeare and Jane Austen for writing the same stories, when he himself does exactly the same thing.

As long as I get laid afterward I do not care. In fact I would be in favor of a new Nicholas Sparks movie every month. Also the posters are hilarious.

I haven't watched a Nicholas Sparks movie since "Message in a Bottle." What little I remember it was decent enough until the out-of-left-field ending. I never want to see another Sparks adaptation again.

I loved Walk to Remember and I don't care what anyone says its a great movie. Dear John was decent too. Notebook was overrated. I will admit that

hahaha, People piss on Stephanie Meyer a lot but at least HER crappy books had vampires. Albeit sparkly ones. Nicholas Sparks is the true hack.

I saw this on Cracked.com this morning and I loved it. It's all so horrible and yet Sparks continues making money. That's Hollywood.

What mainstream genre DOESN'T follow a formula?

I usually don't critisize Chick Flicks too much. Yes, they're predictable and follow a similar formula, but this is typically true of most other genres, especially horror.. which I'm a huge fan of. So I don't like calling the kettle black.

The Notebook sucked balls, but a Walk to remember was good.

Out of all the N.Sparks movies, I did enjoy A Walk to Remember the most. Shane West gave a good performance and he actually bought the Camaro he drove in the movie. thumbs up.

Read the Cracked article. Its a little more about Sparks claiming to be the most original writer in the genre and less about the fact that the genre is formulaic
