If Guys Made Chick Flicks…

My wife loves the Anne of Green Gables movie series, which is fine.  It sure beats watching Jerry Springer, or the Real Housewives of Atlanta, or the NBC Lying News.  And believe you me, she has watched all the Anne movies, umpteen times:  Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Avonlea, Anne – The Continuing Story, and Anne: The Denture Years.  Still, after a certain period of time, the movies can get a little tedious.  If you’re honest, you guys will admit that you watched these movies at least once with your wife, back in those early years, when you tried to convince her that you weren’t the insensitive jerk that you really are.  As you sat there on the loveseat, fake smile implanted on your face and sipping a Cafe International mocha, you craved action, any action, from the Anne movie.  Secretly, you wished that Gilbert or Matthew, or even Miss Stacy for goodness sakes, would open up a can on somebody.  One well-placed light saber battle, right in the middle of the movie, would relieve the tedium for sure.  But alas, Anne of Green Gables was written by a woman.

Still though, you can’t help but wonder what would happen if guys really could remake classic chick flicks.  But thanks to the wonders of modern technology, we can make them in our own image.  And so, without further ado, I proudly present to you a portion of Anne of Green Gables, digitally re-machoed for maledom everywhere:


Now, wasn’t that wonderful?  And, in my opinion, still adheres to the tradition of the original film, whatever that is.  My wife disagrees, and points out that she has to suffer through me watching Star Wars ad nauseum.  Obviously, she is kidding.  There is not a person in the world uncultured enough to not like Star Wars.  But, I guess turnabout is fair play.  Cautiously, I present the feminine side of science fiction:

Nice try, but just not the same.  A woman just can’t grasp the subtle nuances of Star Wars.  I think I have more than proven my point and would like to call for a worldwide re-writing of all chick flicks by qualified males.  Some weanie recently informed me that most chick flicks are already made by men.  Begone with you sir, you and your conspiracy theories, and go back to your Cafe International mocha.
