Listen up ladies! Have you spent all summer being dragged to the movies by your boyfriend just to see action flick after action flick? Well, we think it's time these guys return the favor and do the unthinkable—see a chick flick! But we bet they'll need a little convincing, which is where our new feature, Defend Your Chick Flick, comes in! Feast your eyes on our first installment featuring the ladies of "Monte Carlo."
The rom-com, which stars Selena Gomez as a teen mistaken for a British heiress while vacationing in France, hits theaters today, and follows Selena, Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy as they encounter some crazy adventures on their European tour. Don't have your boyfriend running to the box office just yet?
Well, here's Selena and Leighton to defend their chick flick, reassuring us that this movie isn't just for the girls.
"Boys are going to want to see it because of this one," Leighton joked, pointing to Selena. "It’s definitely romantic, there’s a lot of that, if you are a sensitive kind of guy," she added.
But tell your guy not to worry; there is a lot more to this movie than just a love story.
"It’s also not overboard though. The romance isn’t overboard. It’s not thrown in your face," Selena said.
Most importantly, you both will get a good laugh out it.
"It’s really funny, really funny, especially when we are dealing with her [Selena’s] alter ego, British-crazy-not-so-nice girl. It’s, like, really funny stuff," Leighton gushed.
