Not all of the greatest chick flicks are dramas, however. No, many of the best movies aimed at women are actually comedies -- especially romantic comedies, or "rom coms." When Harry Met Sally... is a great example (and really, almost any and all other movies starring Meg Ryan qualify), and so is Clueless. And one of the best chick flick comedy movies ever, Bridesmaids, was released in recent years.
Chick flicks are the best. Honestly, don’t judge us. A night in with the girls wouldn't be the same without a '90s rom com, or a sad movie to sniffle though. Yes, the chick flick isn't cool, and it's probably not an Oscar contender, but it'll bring a smile to your face no matter what.
The Lucky One It is hard to make a list of chick-flicks without a little Nicholas Sparks in the mix. Starring Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling, ‘The Lucky One’ makes you go through a whirlwind of emotions if you’re the kind of person who believes in the story he/she is being told without questioning the logistics of it every second.
Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Andie Anderson covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." They meet in a bar shortly after the bet is made.
Harry and Sally first meet as they finish college in Chicago and spend 18 hours together in a car headed to New York. They don’t quite hit off, particularly after Harry opines that a man and a woman can never be just friends because he’ll always want to have sex with her.
Breakfast at Tiffany's 1961: The perfect pick-me-up for any day of the week, Audrey Hepburn will bring out your girlie side as society maven Holly Golightly. You'll die over her LBD and pearls, standing outside the window at Tiffany's with a coffee and doughnut in hand.
Sixteen Candles 1984: Molly Ringwald's Sam struggles to survive a mostly-heinous 16th birthday, full of teenage mood swings and, of course, pining for class-stud Jake Ryan. While there's plenty of nostalgia in the flick, this John Hughes classic will make you so thankful you've left those awkward high school years behind.
Legally Blonde 2001: A bubbly sorority girl studies up so she can follow her ex-boyfriend to Harvard Law School, hoping to prove she's wife material. In the process she realizes her own worth, that's she's smarter than she ever knew, and that she's definitely more than "blond hair and big boobs." Girl power indeed.
