As girls, we need a little dose of comedy and romance to keep our hearts and minds in a certain cloud. These movies are heart-warming, satisfying and beyond entertaining – there’s no need to state a reason for why we love a good dose of chick flicks… it’s just necessary.
Here’s our top 8 must-watch chick flicks! (If you haven’t seen these, you better get on it now!)
1. Mean Girls
Staring: Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried
In high school there are always the segregation of stereotypes – this movie talks all about that. From being in the popular zone to the nerdy crowd. In Mean Girls, Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) is a hit with The Plastics, the A-list girl clique at her new school, until she makes the mistake of falling for Aaron Samuels, the ex-boyfriend of alpha Plastic Regina George (Rachel McAdams).
2. Pretty Woman
Staring: Julia Roberts, Richard Gere
A man in a legal but hurtful business needs an escort for some social events, and hires a beautiful prostitute he meets… only to fall in love. This movie not only shows a womans confidence in herself, it gives us that little bit of hope that there is in fact someone for everyone.
3. He’s Just Not That Into You
Staring: Justin Long, Scarlett Johanson, Bradley Cooper, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Ginnifer Goodwin
This is the ultimate chick flick. If you haven’t watched this yet – you’re missing out. The movie is basically about all kind of relationship scenarios. You’ve got the desperate girl, the perfect couple and even the cheating husband. These stories interconnect in a unique way.
Staring: Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne
Now this is perfect story for best friends. If you’re a girls girl and love some girl time, this is a must watch. It’s about a competition between the maid of honor and a bridesmaid, over who is the bride’s best friend, threatens to upend the life of an out-of-work pastry chef. It’s quirky, it’s funny, and it’s just a breath of fresh air. No need for those romantic love stories – this is a straight to the point kind of fun movie.
5. 500 Days Of Summer
Staring: Zoey Dechanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt
This really is your not-so typical kind of love story. It’s different and unique. An offbeat romantic comedy about a woman who doesn’t believe true love exists, and the young man who falls for her. It’s fun, simple and really heartwarming.
6. 10 Things I Hate About You
Staring: Julia Stiles, Heath Ledger, Joseph Gordon-Levitt
This is a chick flick that everyone should have already seen. Staring the late Heath Ledger, as the eye candy through out the movie, it really is one of the greatest chick flicks of all time. The movie was inspired by the classic Shakespeare play “The Taming of the Shrew.”, set in a modern day high school. Pretty unique if you ask us.
7. Breakfast At Tiffany’s
Staring: Audrey Hepburn
How could a classic not be in this list? Breakfast At Tiffany’s is a movie that all girls should have ready to watch on a lazy Sunday night with hot chocolate in hand. It’s about a young New York socialite who becomes interested in a young man who has moved into her apartment building. It’s quirky and fun – plus, a black and white movie, it just warms up the heart.
8. The Notebook
Staring: Ryan Gosling, Rachel McAdams
This movie is considered to be the classic of this era – it really is. The story of a poor and passionate young man who falls in love with a rich young woman and gives her a sense of freedom. They soon are separated by their social differences and the struggles and passion that runs through them, it’s pretty inspiring. Based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks, it’s really something.
