Cheem Chick Flick Words Chick flicks aren\u2019t for everyone. Synonyms include girly movies, cry-fests, and self-pity parties. But if you think they\u2019re simply superficial or vapid (refer below), you\u2019ve pegged them all wrong. Because honey, let me teach you a thing or two. Eight to be exact. 1. \u201cVapid\u201d \u2014 The House Bunny Dictionary definition: without liveliness or spirit; dull or tedious Source Remember that time when you spoke\u00a0to a shallow douchebag\u00a0over Tinder? Yes, he, and that conversation, were vapid AF. 2. \u201cCapricious\u201d \u2014 Clueless Dictionary definition: subject to, led by, or indicative of a sudden, odd notion or unpredictable change; erratic. It kinda means\u00a0you're a bit sot. Source If I, or any man, could encapsulate the female gender under one word, it would be in the exact way Alicia Silverstone described her almost-encounter to sleep with a gay man: capricious. Am I the only one who related to Cher on a spiritual level when she lamented about an embarrassing misinterpretation of a man\u2019s feelings towards her? Source Okay never mind, pretend I didn\u2019t say that. I change my mind. (Lol, how capricious of me.) 3. \u201cTempestuous\u201d \u2014 10 Things I hate about you Dictionary definition: characterized by strong and turbulent or conflicting emotion. Source In the\u00a0show that got us swooning over Heath Ledger, he sure raised the bar for men on how to handle a hot-headed woman. Because his character, Patrick Verona, sure put up with a lot before he could win the heart of our protagonist Kat. Because hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Comparatively, you could say your naggy Ah Ma tests your patience with her tempestuous, yet unyielding opinions on dating. \u201cMewling rampallian\u201d was also used to describe Kat, which is synonymous, but we\u2019ll leave that intermediate level to the ostentatious linguists. 4. \u201cSordid\u201d \u2014 Easy A Dictionary definition: involving immoral or dishonourable actions and motives; arousing moral distaste and contempt. Source Remember that ratchet night when you were prancing to\u00a0Gangnam Style on the table top? Yeah girl, sordid. 5. \u201cQuintessence\u201d \u2014 The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Dictionary definition: the most perfect embodiment of something. Source Not exactly counted as a chick flick; but with themes of self-discovery and courage, it\u2019s basically an equivalent. And I had to include the film that captured the quintessence of Life. It\u2019s like how one could say the quintessence of a girl\u2019s utmost basic bitch instinct is her immediate gravitation to the Snapchat dog filter. 6. \u201cEmpirically\u201d \u2014 When Harry Met Sally Dictionary definition: originating in or based on observation or experience Source Based solely on physical observation, Harry concluded that Sally was a chiobu. His initial stance was \u201cempirically, you are attractive\u201d. While that progressed into something more throughout the movie, it\u2019s not recommended unless you live in a rom-com fantasy where you have the wit and charm to pull off this apathy. Or you could go 12 years a slave in the friendzone. Seems like many men have followed in Harry\u2019s footsteps. Or at least that\u2019s what I\u2019ve gathered, empirically. 7. \u201cFouer\u201d \u2014 Breakfast at Tiffany\u2019s Dictionary definition: 1. crazy; foolish. 2. drunk. Source This slang isn\u2019t used often in our time but it\u2019s always good to expand your general knowledge. And it just feels so much more classy when it\u2019s of the French persuasion. Pull an Audrey Hepburn the next time an Ah Lian picks a fight with you by politely letting her know she\u2019s acting \u201ctres fou\u201d. If you can\u2019t beat her, confuse her till she pisses herself off. You wouldn\u2019t want to be caught acting any fouer than her, after all. 8. \u201cBestride\u201d \u2014 Mean Girls Dictionary definition: 1. stand astride over; straddle. 2. dominate. Source \u201cWhy, Man, he doth bestride the narrow world like a colossus\u201d See? Chick flicks are totally cultured. The influence of Regina George even has me quoting Shakespeare. And it was truly poetic how the class teacher translated it to \u201cWhy is he so huge and obnoxious\u201d. Just like how Regina bestrode the high school with her popularity, bestride the Chick Flick fandom with your new-found vocabulary. Higher Language Level Unlocked I hope by the end of this you'll\u00a0see that there\u2019s more to our beloved feminine films than meets the eye. You can now consider yourself a grade-A William Shakespeare. Or at least, Britney ShakeSpeare.
