And everyday, a new way of making someone fall in love? We’ll take that DVD, please!
When our best friend gets married, we’re the happiest for them, right? Yes, but then we go through a major self-reflection phase and all we see is that our best friend’s life gets better and better, and our days just get gloomier by the hour! Bridesmaids is a film that features funny-woman Kristen Wiig, who plays an out-of-work pastry chef who goes through that exact description, after discovering her best friend is getting married. Bridesmaids is an absolutely funny flick that girls will love with it’s slapstick humor, cat fights and dress-fittings gone wrong.
3. Sex & The City : The Movie

4. (500) Days of Summer

Summer isn’t the type of girl who believes in the concept of love, whereas Tom does. Learn how a guy falls in love with this movie. We would also recommend a box of tissues since this movie is quite a tear-jerker!
5. Mean Girls
A movie that cannot be missed, catch this hilarious take on the seriousness of high-school cliques, bullying and cat fights starring Lindsay Lohan and the girl we all remember from The Notebook, Rachel McAdams!
6. Say Anything
This movie may be old, but one should always remember who started the iconic pose of standing outside a girl’s house, lifting up a boombox that played the song you first made love to – John Cusack. Say Anything is more than just a love story or a chick flick. This movie will make you cry, laugh, and possibly spend most of the time going ‘awww’.
