Are there really such things as “guy movies”? I’ve been married a long time and known a lot of people over the years. I just saw Bullet Train and really liked it. IMDB rated it high so I suggested watching it with my wife. It turned out to be very Quentin Tarantino-esque and she really didn’t like it. Same with British humor (in the US anyway). I thought In The Loop was hilarious, and of course Monty Python. I know there are exceptions but, honestly, I haven’t found many.

I feel sorry for some of you. My GF and I saw it last week and we both loved it. It is entirely possible that some of your ladies just don’t have good taste, fellas. You may want to put them on notice that they should do better. 🤣

Old School. Anchorman. 40 Year Old Virgin.

Not saying as a woman I can't enjoy them, but they're definitely high in dude humor. I'm the one woman I know who loved This Is The End.

Forreal. How many guys here have exclaimed, "You're my boy, Blue!"?

Clarifying my last - we also saw Everything Everywhere All At Once a bit ago and we both loved that, too. So there’s no chick flick/guy flick concept going on under my roof. Try getting out of your depth and appreciating something that isn’t necessarily aimed directly at you. That’s the only place you grow!

I feel movies like Ted, Deadpool and other irreverent comedies usually attract more males than females.

Same..I watched Bullet train with my gf last weekend and she did not have a great response whereas I loved it!! ❤️

I loved bullet train. Maybe I’m just an odd F

Clarifying… Nothing wrong either way. My wife really enjoys vegging to Hallmark movies during the holidays.
I sure there must be couples that are very much in sync on movie/TV likes. Music seems to pair much more often.
Vive la différence!

GoodFellas is a guy movie and also Raging Bull in many ways is

My wife and I both loved Bullet Train. She generally likes Tarantino, but we both agree OUATIH was a pretty weak entry. We both like mafia movies and crime shows. Goodfellas, Casino, Departed, etc. Bad Blood, as an example. We both love K Dramas and Korean movies.

I think, like everything, people have different tastes. It’s okay to have different tastes. My wife LOVED GoT whereas I couldn’t even enjoy a single episode much less a season. I loved Halt and Catch Fire and my wife couldn’t get into it.

Me and my wife have three distinct Netflix profiles - Him, Her and Us. I don’t know if it’s a Man/Woman thing but just different tastes.

I was watching THE FRENCH CONNECTION and my girlfriend called it a "dad movie."

French Connection is an excellent film

I grew up in the 90s and there were always stereotypes of action movies being geared towards men and rom-coms were often referred to as “chick flicks” ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I notice that when women and people of color raise issues… basically saying they are experiencing bias, microgressions, and straight up racism at work, they always have to say that they “know” it’s “not intentional” or “unintentional”. It’s almost like they can’t initiate the discussion without adding that caveat so that they’re not attacked… It seems like it’s really important to protect the feelings of the perpetrators.

I've been in consulting for ~8 months post-MBA and I hate it. I don't care about the work I'm doing and feel like I have minimal impact, but I work literally all day from the time I wake up until I go to bed. I want to leave and move to industry, ideally an earlier stage startup, but if I left now I'd owe a lot of money back to my current employer for tuition reimbursement. Don't know what to do. I feel incredibly stuck, and every day I feel like more of my soul is being sucked away from me 🙃
