Not to reinforce a stereotype or anything, but we all love us a good night in with our girls where we can eat, talk, and binge watch rom coms. Instead of wasting time arguing about what to watch, here’s a list of a few chick flicks you need to see.
1-When Harry Met Sally
It’s the first one on this list because it’s the oldest and it’s a classic. You need to have watched a Meg Ryan rom com.
2- The Notebook
This one is for all the Nicholas Sparks lovers out there. Everyone has probably already seen it several times, but it never gets old.
3- Mean Girls
I’m not sure what rock you were living under if you still haven’t seen this one. But if you’re in the mood for some bitchy high school teens, you should watch ‘Mean Girls’.
4- Bridget Jones’s Dairy
It’s sort of the typical story, but it’s been made into a classic in the last decade so give it a watch!
5- A Walk To Remember
It’s a story about a man who falls in love with a terminally ill woman. It’s a tear-jerker, so pick this one if you feel like sobbing a little bit.
6- 27 Dresses
It’s wedding season again! And everyone seems to be getting married, except for you.
7- The Ugly Truth
Katherine Heighl again, with Gerard Butler. I personally love these two together, so I’d go for this film if I wanted a chilled night.
8- Life As We Know It
This one’s pretty great. I’d say it’s my favorite from the Heighl trilogy I just recommended. It’s sad, funny and a feel good film.
9- What Happens In Vegas
Two people reluctantly get married in Vegas. We’ve all heard this story before, but it’s great when these two people happen to be Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz.
10- How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days
I had to add a Kate Hudson and Mathew McConaughey collaboration. It’s definitely funny and worth the watch.
11- 13 Going On 30
I’ve watched this one so many times as a kid, and I still like it. One, because I love Mark Ruffalo, and two, because it’s more imaginative then the rest of the films on this list.
12- John Tucker Must Die
Watch this if you want to watch how some high school girls ally against a player. It’s kind of silly, but fun for a chilled night.
13- Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging
English high school students again. But this time, it’s less bitchiness, and more funny-awkwardness.
14- Miss Congeniality
Had to add a Sandra Bullock film. No one ever gets bored of watching her being a hardcore badass.
15- Bride Wars
Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson seriously need to make a film together again!
16- The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants
This one is actually deep and grounded. It doesn’t have the cliché happy ending, and I genuinely think it’s a great film about growing up and discovering who you are. It also has a sequel.
17- The Wedding Planner
A film about sudden romance between a man who was about to get married and his wedding planner. Not particularly ethical, but it’s still likeable!
18- The Back-up Plan
I like this one because it’s about a single woman who decides to have a baby on her own, and how her future boyfriend has to come to terms with it.
19- What Women Want
Is it true love or not if a man and a woman fall in love because of a man’s supernatural powers?
20- Just Like Heaven
I truly think this is one of the greatest on this list. Give it a watch if you’d like to get inspired and emotional.
21- Pretty Woman
It’s a classic and a must-see! Plus, it includes the all-time-famous “Pretty Woman” song that everyone seems to know the lyrics to.
22- Made Of Honor
For some reason, I find this film relatable to a lot of women. You know, the guy-best-friend, who’s only a best-friend until you’re about to get married to someone else then he realises that you’re the greatest thing that ever happened to him and that he wants to marry you? Probably sounds familiar to some of us.
23- Definitely, Maybe
A man tells his kids the story about how he met his wife, and thankfully that man is Ryan Reynolds. So watch this one, it’s light and nice.
24- The Time Traveler’s Wife
It’s a little soppy and sad, but it’s realistic and down to earth so I’d recommend it.
This one’s atypical, and isn’t similar to the rest of the films on this list. It’s about a mom (Susan Sarandon) who is terminally ill, and has to accept another woman, Julia Roberts, in her family’s life. It’s a film about acceptance, life and death. It’s not light, but it’s a really good film to watch.
26- P.S. I Love You
It’s about death, love and moving on. And the soundtrack is amazing! I’d definitely recommend this one.
27- The Lobster
I added this one for the laughs. I wouldn’t say it’s a chick flick, but give it a watch and curse me later!
That’s the end of our list! There are so many more, but these are just a few of the greatest chick flicks I have watched. Hope you girls have a great night!
