Regarding the comments on "men": Any man who won't own up to enjoying a rom-com, or feels "uncomfortable" holding his wife's purse is, in my opinion, anything but a real man.
I love an occasional rom-com; hell, my wife and I got married with the Wedding Singer's album playing in the background. What Women Want was fun and hilarious, despite Gibson since going off his rocker.
And I'll sling my wife's purse over my shoulder any day, whether it's while she shops, or just to give her a break carrying it (damn thing is heavy!). To hell with what other people think! I'm a man - I have nothing to prove to anyone else.
