I’ve been wanting to write part 2 to my first post, My Top 10 Best Chick Flicks, because really, as a chick flick lover, how could I only limit it to 10? Chick flicks, to me, are the ultimate “feel good” movie, even though they may not exactly be the most realistic. But one can dream! Here are 10 more must best chick flicks…
Bend It Like Beckham (2002)
Bend it Like Beckham (buy here): Right after I published the first article, I smacked myself for forgetting this gem. Probably one of the most funniest chick flick ever. The plot is that the daughter of orthodox Sikh rebels against her parents’ traditional cultural beliefs and runs off to Germany with a football team. So yep – it’s a girl’s soccer movie! It also stars Keira Knightley and it’s so, so hilarious.

Beastly (buy here): This is not so much a chick flick; it’s more of a teen romance; and if you get past the terribly unrealistic plot (as in, Lindy and her father’s storyline, not that the guy turns into a beast) then it is thoroughly enjoyable. This is the “modern day” Beauty and the Beast story, based on the book by Alex Finn, and I don’t know, it was just such a sweet, lovely little movie. It stars teen queen Vanessa Hundgens and the drop dead gorgeous Alex Pettyfer. I really enjoyed it. It’s one of my favorite movies even though it was a big flop, ha.
I love it for several reasons. The piano score throughout the movie was absolutely breathe-taking (there are many variations in the film but this one is my favorite), the beautiful imagery, and also… Alex Pettyfer… more like PRETTYfer am I right? They made him look like a monster and he still looked hot. Go figure. Also, the last 30 seconds of the movie will also make you LOL so bad. Mary-Kate Olsen also stars and she was perfect for this role, I loved her outfits.
