And, no, I'm not gay. There seems to be a stigma attached to men who enjoy what might be commonly referred to as a "girly" movie. In my group of male friends, enjoying a film that has been labeled a chick-flick is looked down upon as being less than manly, and carries inherent suspicions about one's sexual orientation (what does one has to do with the other??). That's when the jokes and (friendly) harassment begin. Imagine the reaction I got a few nights ago when, during a casual conversation about New York, I admitted to liking the opening scenes of the classic Breakfast at Tiffany's. The jabs never ceased.
I do like this film, especially the beginning. With the theme playing in the background, an empty 5th Avenue in New York seems especially pensive and nostalgic. That Mancini sure knew how to write a melody!
By the way, for the most part, I find romantic comedies appalling. Breakfast at Tiffany's is a rare exception.
