T-Servo: Sybarite: The film is a Chinese version of "chick flick" minus the emotional engagement and relationship-based social realism that typically are associated with the Hollywood genre.

I prefer "chicks flicking chicks" flicks.

As opposed to Hollywood, which has had a century of (nominally) free thought and expression, and which produces anything original only when every other option has failed?
