The New York Giants and New England Patriots will face off this Sunday in the Super Bowl in Arizona. But if that's not your thing — and you can wrestle the remote away from the sports fan in your life — TBS is planning a lineup of Movies Women Want between 9:30 a.m. and 10 p.m.
So here's the fun debate: Are these really the movies "women want," on Super Bowl Sunday or any other day — especially given that most of you said you'd be watching the game in the first place? To see the lineup and get my take, just read more.
Here's the lineup:
- 9:30 a.m.: The Perfect Man
- 11:30 a.m.: Save the Last Dance
- 1:30 p.m.: What Women Want
- 4 p.m.: Fools Rush In
- 6 p.m.: Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason
- 8 p.m.: The Wedding Planner
It's not my personal favorite slate of romantic comedies (OK, except for Save the Last Dance — yeah, I said it), and I've been annoyed by the ad campaign that makes reference to "not breaking a nail" and other things most of us haven't worried about for a few decades. Plus, most of these movies are on TBS a lot as it is — couldn't they at least get the rights to something new?
At the same time, I don't think it's a bad idea to counterprogram the most stereotypically guy-focused TV day of the year with something equally stereotypically girly. Maybe I'll just plan my own empowered-gal movie marathon instead. What's your take on this?
