10. Never Been Kissed (1999)
A true ’90s classic. A baby-faced journalist (Drew Barrymore) poses as a high school student and falls in love with her English teacher (Michael Vartan). This movie will give you the warmth and the fuzzies to remind you of that oh-so-special first kiss.
Where to find it: Amazon ($3.99), HBO, Hulu, DirecTV
9. When Harry Met Sally (1989)
When Harry Met Sally is what many consider to be the “gold standard” in romantic comedies. This film follows Harry (Billy Crystal) and Sally (Meg Ryan) in a comedic tour-de-force–a story of friendship, relationships, and true love.
Where to find it: Redbox ($2.99)
8. Legally Blonde (2001)
“Bend and snap!”
Those three words are arguably the most frequently used phrase when you think about Legally Blonde. If you’re ready for a story about love, friends, and girl power then take a trip to Harvard with Elle and Bruiser Woods. This is a feel-good movie and a guaranteed Girls Night In hit.
Where to find it: Amazon ($3.99), DirecTV ($3.99), YouTube ($2.99), 123movies
7. Mamma Mia (2008)
Love. Greece. ABBA. These three things make up one of the most fun musicals of the last 20 years. Mamma Mia is more than a chick flick, it’s a coming-of-age story. It’s all about girl power, the bond between a mother and daughter, and the memories created between best friends.
Where to find it: Netflix, Amazon ($3.99), Hulu, DirecTV
6. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003)
This movie is the good time you need. It’s funny, witty, sweet, and a little heartbreaking. The ultimate battle of the sexes, you will fall in love with the back-and-forth between Andie (Kate Hudson) and Ben (Matthew McConaughey) immediately and root for them to get their HEA. (That’s Happily Ever After for those scoring at home.)
Where to find it: Amazon ($3.99), DirecTV, 123movies
5. Pride and Prejudice (2005)
Between this and the BBC miniseries, the story of Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy is practically a tale as old as time…or at least as old as the Jane Austen novel of the same name. For a story set in 1813, it feels surprisingly natural and familiar. It’s the perfect chick flick when you’re in the mood for a sassy, fiery young woman who falls in love with a taciturn; yet, wholehearted gentleman. This one is for the girls, Mr. Darcy will see you now.
Where to find it: Amazon, DirecTV, 123movies, YouTube ($3.99)
4. Pretty Woman (1990)
The kind we’d all like to meet. Pretty Woman is a classic in the realm of romantic comedies and chick flicks. There is just something enigmatic about Julia Roberts in this movie, it’s freeing. It’s a Gary Marshall staple, featuring many of his (and our) favorite actors. Fall in love with Pretty Woman or it’ll be a big mistake. Big. Huge!
Where to find it: Amazon ($3.99), DirecTV, YouTube ($2.99)
3. Mean Girls (2004)
“On Wednesdays, we wear pink.” That line defines a generation, and it’s all thanks to Mean Girls. This movie is great for so many reasons, not least of all is its familiarity for those wading through their high school years. Written by Tina Fey, a comedic genius in her own right, the sarcastic humor is what keeps you coming back for more. Mean Girls…it’s “so fetch.”
Where to find it: YouTube ($2.99), Amazon ($3.99), HBO
2. Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)
Breakfast at Tiffany’s, though the oldest movie on this list, it is still likely to be the most beloved. Audiences around the world fell in love with Holly Golightly’s endearing and honest personality when she first hit the Silver Screen. If you’re ready to cuddle up and disappear into the world of a New York socialite then grab a croissant for Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Where to find it: YouTube ($2.99), Amazon ($2.99), 123movies
1. The Notebook (2004)
At the top of the list is a movie with so much authenticity, so much heart that as soon as it’s over there’s only one thing to do…watch it again. The story of Noah and Allie is one of legend, though it starts as young love, you soon learn it’s a tale of true love that conquers all. This movie will forever reign as one of the top romantic movies of all time, and as chick flicks go, it’s a no-brainer.
Where to find it: Amazon ($3.99), YouTube ($3.99), DirecTV
Now that you have the best-of-the-best in chick flicks, it’s time to get down to business. So call your friends, corral your significant others, pop the popcorn, and cozy up in front of the TV…it’s movie time.
