Not into Sports? TBS Has Rom-Coms for Super Bowl Sunday

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

.

Here's the lineup:

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?

I like The Wedding Planner but thats the only movie I like out of all of those. Some of these movies are equally cheesy but I think my superbowl lineup will be Dirty Dancing, Must Love Dogs, Bend It Like Beckham, season 3 of The Office and Season 7 of Gilmore Girls. If I had Golden Girls it would be on like popcorn.

If TBS is going to show so-called chick flicks, then at least pick good ones! yeesh!

I agree! I'm watching the game, but I do love STLD. I think an empowered-gal movie marathon sounds like the perfect solution for anyone who doesn't like football. Some Iron Jawed Angels, some Norma Rae, perhaps?

I kinda feel sorry for guys who don't like football. They don't get many options on game day. It's either football or chick flicks. lol
