Stupid. It simply is a test for a film being a chick flic.

I can tell easily. Is there any point in the movie where while the "plot" is advanced, a character's movements are accompanied by the playing of a pop tune? If dancing is involded then +1. If a dopey grin is involved +1. If the best friend is a dumpy chick with glasses +1
