Review: ‘The Ultimate Guide to Chick Flicks’

In addition to producing more than a dozen short films in the past decade, Kim Adelman has positioned herself as the girl's guru: Her previous titles include "A Girl's Guide to Elvis" and "A Girl's Guide to Country." Chick flicks seem a logical next step in that lineup.

In addition to producing more than a dozen short films in the past decade, Kim Adelman has positioned herself as the girl’s guru: Her previous titles include “A Girl’s Guide to Elvis” and “A Girl’s Guide to Country.” Chick flicks seem a logical next step in that lineup.

As she covers topics including pics to accompany ice cream eating (with suggested flavors: “Grease” goes well with a Carnation Neapolitan ice cream bar), seven of the best special-edition DVDs, sexiest scenes and forgotten treasures, Adelman explores, as she puts it, the “reason Julia Roberts’ movies have racked up over $2.5 billion worldwide.”

The lavishly illustrated paperback original has the fun, sassy tone of a friend recommending a favorite film. Adelman’s choices encompass a wide range of films, and the book’s organization and size make it the perfect companion for a trip to the vidstore.
