Product description

From the Publisher

Every woman knows...
...a good movie is more than entertainment--it's therapy. If administered properly, in conjunction with something obscenely high in fat grams, a great movie can cure anything from a bad hair day to a full-fledged identity crisis. CINEMATHERAPY: The Girl’s Guide to Movies for Every Mood, by Nancy Peske and Beverly West, recommends a movie to suit and soothe a woman’s every possible mood.

Do you need a good cry? Watch Marvin’s Room, Love Story, or another Copious Weeper, and cry yourself a river. Is Mom driving you nuts? Check out a Mother Issue flick like Postcards from the Edge or Terms of Endearment and remind yourself that you love her anyway. Is your Prince Charming turning into a big old frog? Try a Happily-Ever-After movie like An Officer and a Gentleman or It Happened One Night, and reassure yourself that fairy tales can come true.

With chapters like "Yeah, Okay, So He’s a Jerk, but He’s Soooooo Cute: Dysfunctional Romances" (see Legends of the Fall or Leaving Las Vegas) to "When Women Were Women and Men Were Nervous: Men Behaving Well Movies" (check out Pride and Prejudice or Adam’s Rib) and funny sidebars such as "Faking It: Phony Gal-Films That Really Piss Us Off" or "Hoopskirt Dreams: Best Costume Movies," CINEMATHERAPY is something no modern woman, or film lover, should live without. Packed with dosage instructions, warning labels, and expert advice on the therapeutic benefits of each film, CINEMATHERAPY helps you make the perfect movie choice for any time you need to curl up in an old bathrobe and take charge of your own remote control.

About the Authors

Beverly West and Nancy Peske are film fanatics, best friends, identical cousins, and the co-authors of Meditations for Men Who do Next to Nothing (and Would Like to Do Even Less); How to Satisfy a Woman Every Time on Five Dollars a Day; and Frankly Scarlett, I Do Give a Damn! Classic Romances Retold. They live in New York City where they spend much of their time debating such sophisticated cinematic polemics as the merits of Gary Oldman’s ripe Camembert excess as opposed to Alan Rickman’s quarter-pounder stoicism, and the far-reaching cultural implications of Brad Pitt’s haircut.

From the Author

As seen on Weekend Today and in Entertainment Weekly
From Entertainment Weekly: You gotta love a movie tome that lists films under subheads that really matter. "The Handy Hunk Chart" (featuring Ralph Fiennes' and Matt Dillon's "Top Drool Pics"), "Faking It: Phony Gal Films That Really Piss Us Off (Pretty Woman, Fatal Attraction)," and "Hoopskirt Dreams: Dresses-to-Die-for Movies" (The Age of Innocence) are just a few of the helpful categorizations that make this snarky little review compilation such a hoot. Peske and West's hilarious observations range from the trenchant ("Sandra Bullock...can take off a knit cap and not have hat head much less flyaway") to the feverish ("Vincent Perez is so beautiful, he'll make your joints ache"). A must for your next girls' night in. Grade: A Minus.
