Women vs. Men: Most-Watched Movies

The Sky Movies Sci-fi & Horror Channel recently conducted a survey to tie in with the Sci-Fi London film festival. The question? What movies do you watch over and over again?

The answers were very interesting. Sky broke up the results by gender lines. Men loved Sci-Fi movies, which is fairly obvious. Women, on the other hand, love movies with music (evidently). There is one exception though - "Star Wars"! Sci-Fi transcends all boundaries!

Here are the detailed results of the survey.

Men's Most-Watched Films
1. Star Wars trilogy
2. Aliens
3. The Terminator
4. Blade Runner
5. The Godfather
Others: The Lord of the Rings, The Godfather, Alien, Die Hard, Terminator 2

Women's Most-Watched Films
1. Dirty Dancing
2. Star Wars trilogy
3. Grease
4. The Sound of Music
5. Pretty Woman
Others: It's A Wonderful Life, The Matrix, The Terminator, Jaws, The Lord of the Rings

Just let me say one thing - "Dirty Dancing" is just painful to watch. I don't care what Johnny says - get back in your corner, Baby!

Sky Movies has not stated how many people took part in the survey. However, it was reported in the BBC article that "Star Wars" fans have been flocking to a new exhibition of props, costumes and other memorabilia which opened on Friday in London. So, just like most surveys, take the results with a grain of salt. They may just indicate that female "Star Wars" fans like chick flicks with music.
