    • Mike Newell: I don't like the term "chick flick." I think it denigrates a movie. It has overtones of talking down to women, like they are second best. We don't call The Last Samurai a guy flick, do we?

    • Mike Newell: Romantic comedies are backbreaking to write because they have to be fresh. I've yet to find another one which was surprising enough to do.
