In the mood for a free chick flick? Want to join us for a screening of the upcoming romantic comedy "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past" April 29 at AMC Castleton?

Just leave a comment here telling us your favorite girlfriend character in a movie or TV show. I'll pick at random from those entries until we run out of passes. Then I'll contact winners via e-mail. And, this time, you don't even have to pick up the tickets downtown. I'll give you a code that will allow you to print them out for yourself.Ghosts of Girlfriends PastGhosts of Girlfriends Past

FYI: The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, and Michael Douglas. More info on the movie here.

So tell me about those girlfriends...
  • Elliott from Scrubs... she is so funny!
  • Well, in spite of their shallowness, I love all of the girlfriends in Sex and the City - both the TV series and the movie.

    I also like Sally's girlfriend in When Harry Met Sally - the one played by Carrie Fisher, I think it was. I still laugh when I think of her telling her new husband, I will never want your wagon wheel coffee table.

    (Although I also have to admit that I rather liked that wagon wheel coffee table.)

    Oh, but wait...is this question about girlfriends of girlfriends or girlfriends of guys? I'll have to percolate some more and get back with you....

  • Directed by Hoosier Mark Waters.
  • Sloane from Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
  • I would definitely have to go with Gloria Cleary (played by Isla Fisher) who played Vince Vaughn's overwhelmingly affectious and neurotic girlfriend fling in Wedding Crashers.

    The violent mood swings were so believable to the point where I probably wouldn't date her in real life for fear that she would resort back to her role in that movie.

    My second pick (although she was not a girlfriend) would have to be Lucille Ball in I Love Lucy. A great sense of humor is an incredible quality for a girlfriend/wife to have.
  • Both Laurelai and Rory from Gilmore Girls - brilliant dialogue.
  • Anya from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Gotta love a girl with no censor.
  • The girls in Now and Then. That movie brings back memories of long summer vacations hanging out with my girlfriends in small town central Illinois.
  • Uma Thurman in My Super Ex-Girlfriend. Just saw it tonight....*sigh*....what I wouldn't give for super powers and a can of whup a** to give me the upper hand in a relationship.
  • Rachel McAdams in The Notebook. Love endures all.
  • OH.... MY... GOD!

    Duh... it has to be Janice (played by Maggie Wheeler) from NBC's Friends who dated Chandler Bing during various seasons!
  • I am kind of sad that I can't answer this question.
  • Annette Bening as Sydney Ellen Wade in The American President.
  • Winnie from The Wonder Years!
  • its so perfect that this is a jennifer garner movie because she is my favorite hearbroken girlfriend from catch and release.
  • Denny Crane's blowup doll on Boston Legal. Oh how I miss that show!!!
  • Karen Walker from Will and Grace
    A girlfriend to boy and girl alike!
    her political INcorrectness was great.
  • I agree with Linda B! Karen from Will and Grace.
  • Dana Delaney played a role that will forever remain in my heart and mind. She was the wife of Powers Booth and their family was moving west. He had to leave and serve with the Rangers, so she stepped up and took the lead. She was a powerful woman with a soft heart, and a leader's leader. Can't recall the title, but it was a powerful movie.

  1. So much for Eric Holder's conversation about race. If white people have got something to say, they get sued over it. Bottom line: white people have un-freer speech than others as a consequence of the misnamed "Civil rights laws."

  2. I agree, having seen three shows, that I was less than wowed. Disappointing!!

  3. Start drilling, start fracking, and start using our own energy. Other states have enriched their citizens and nearly elminated unemployment by using these resources that are on private land. If you are against the 'low prices' of discount stores, the best way to allow shoppers more choice is to empower them with better earnings. NOT through manipulated gov mandated min wage hikes, but better jobs and higher competitive pay. This would be direct result of using our own energy resources, yet Obama knows that Americans who arent dependent of gov welfare are much less likely to vote Dem, so he looks for ways to ensure America's decline and keep its citizens dependent of gov.

  4. Say It Loud, I'm Black and Ashamed: It's too bad that with certain "black" entertainment events, it seems violence and thuggery follows and the collateral damage that it leaves behinds continues to be a strain on the city in terms of people getting hurt, killed or becoming victims of crimes and/or stretching city resources. I remember shopping in the Meadows area years ago until violence and crime ended make most of the business pack you and leave as did with Lafayette Square and Washington Square. Over the past 10 to 12 years, I remember going to the Indiana Black Expo Soul Picnic in Washington Park. Violence, gang fights and homicides ended that. My great grandmother still bears the scares on her leg from when she was trampled by a group of thugs running from gun fire from a rival gang. With hundreds of police offices downtown still multiple shootings, people getting shot downtown during Black Expo. A number of people getting shots or murdered at black clubs around the city like Club Six on the west side, The Industry downtown, Jamal Tinsley's shot out in front of the Conrad, multiple fights and shootings at the skating rinks, shootings at Circle Center Mall and shooting and robberies and car jackings at Lafayette Mall. Shootings and gang violence and the State Fair. I can go on and on and on. Now Broad Ripple. (Shaking head side to side) Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Ashamed.

  5. Ballard Administration. Too funny. This is the least fiscally responsive administration I have ever seen. One thing this article failed to mention, is that the Hoosier State line delivers rail cars to the Amtrak Beech Grove maintenance facility for refurbishment. That's an economic development issue. And the jobs there are high-paying. That alone is worth the City's investment.
