My Top 10 Must-See Chick Flicks

Top 10 Must See Chick Flick Movies

Hello, my name is Renee and I am a chick flick lover. And I wholly admit I have a problem. Although actually, I think I’m a movie addict. I am without a doubt, a huge movie buff, so this post is really exciting for me!

You all might know my favorite type of movies are action superhero movies – but those are more cinema movies. For movies at home, I love a good click flick. They are so entertaining, funny and mindless. And sure, most of them all of them are pretty predictable and cliche, but they’re great for when you just wanna relax and not think about anything, you know? Plus: cute fashion and cuter guys. What’s not to love?

Here is my list of my top 10 favorite, must-see click flicks if you are looking for some good wholesome, girly fun. Here we go…

Mean Girls (2004)

Mean Girls (buy here): The one that started it all. I believe the year was 2004, and I believe, if my horrendous math tells me, I was 15. This movie was a huge hit, but I don’t see how it’s not like, quoted all the time. It is written by Tina Fey, so you know it’s hilarious. The plot: girl from Africa (“if you are from Africa, why are you white?”) goes to the US and public school, only to deal with “The Plastics”, a group of mean girls. And then she becomes one. Oh, the drama!

Fave quote: “I don’t think my father, the inventor of Toaster Strudel, would be too pleased to hear about this.”

Easy A (2010)

Easy A

Easy A (buy here): A fairly new one, and the one that made me fall in love with Emma Stone, officially (I fell in love with her when I saw what she wore to the Golden Globes – still obsessed with that peach dress!). Emma plays Olive, a girl who pretends to lose her virginity and chaos (and tons of gossip) ensues in her high school. Emma, as always, is hilarious.

Fave quote: “Judy Blume should’ve prepared me for this.”

Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Forgetting Sarah Marshall (buy here): Warning: this is not your typical chick flick. There is nudity, sex scenes and is overall pretty raunchy, so do not watch it with your parents. Poor Peter is heartbroken when his actress girlfriend, Sarah dumps him. He goes to Hawaii to get over it, only to find Sarah there with her new boyfriend, a over the top British rock star, played by the hilarious Russell Brand.

Fave quote: ”When life gives you lemons, say “F*** the lemons” and bail.”

She’s Out of My League (2010)

She's Out Of My League

She’s Out of My League (buy here): According to IMDB (one of my all-time favorite websites); “An average Joe meets the perfect woman, but his lack of confidence and the influence of his friends and family begin to pick away at the relationship.” … You don’t say! I literally had a lot of LOL moments in this one, I think this is so underrated.

Fave quote: “It kinda looks Japanese”.

How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days

How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days

How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days (buy here): This one is my personal favorite. New York City, magazines, dogs and diamonds – need I say more? Oh and that yellow dress! I’ll take one, please. In a nutshell: writer Andie Anderson is writing a story on how to lose a guy by common misteks women do in relationships (being too clingy, etc). Andie’s antics to try to get rid of the guy (Matthew McConahey are HILARIOUS.

Fave quote: “Is she on something?” ”God I hope so.”

A Walk to Remember (2002)

A Walk to Remember

A Walk to Remember (buy here): Bad boy meets a good, Christian girl and falls in love with her… and that’s all I’m gonna say. But I will say this – it’s a Nicholas Sparks film, so it’s seriously romantic and sweet – but prepare to cry, baby! Oh man how I cried in this one. Love it.

Fave quote: “You have to promise you won’t fall in love with me.” “That’s not a problem.”

My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)

My Big Fa Greek Wedding

My Big Fat Greek Wedding (buy here): The plot is so simple: Poor Mia is apparently “old” and not married, and her family has lost hope. Every chance they get, they remind her that she is old and not married (kinda like someone I know. Mom…). She finally meets a non-Greek (gasp! horror!) man, and all the craziness with her family starts.

Fave quote(s): “There are two kinds of people – Greeks, and everyone else who wish they was Greek.”

“[Aunt to the groom's parents, who she just met at the engagement party] Now, you are family. Okay. All my life, I had a lump at the back of my neck, right here. Always, a lump. Then I started menopause and the lump got bigger from the “hormonees.” It started to grow. So I go to the doctor, and he did the bio… the b… the… the bios… the… b… the bobopsy. Inside the lump he found teeth and a spinal cord… Yes. Inside the lump was my twin.”

The Devil Wears Prada (2006)

The Devil Wears Prada

The Devil Wears Prada (buy here): A young, aspiring journalist takes a job at the top fashion magazine in the world, because it would look good on her resume. She ends up being an assistant to the editor, the “dragon lady” Miranda Priestly; and basically lives one year in hell. (Also, rumored to be inspired by real-life American Vogue editor, Anna Wintor.)

Fave quote: “You don’t deserve them, I mean you eat carbs, for Christ’s sake!”

The House Bunny (2008)

The House Bunny

The House Bunny (buy here): I know, totally random choice, and from what I figured, this movie bombed. But, it has the amazing Emma Stone and Kat Denning, who I’ve always liked. Plus, Anna Faris – she is hilarious. Probably the most mindless of the bunch, but it’s so entertaining. Anna Faris plays a Playboy bunny who gets kicked out because she’s “too old” and ends up being a house mother (and mentor) to a group of outcasts at college.

Oh, and it stars Tyson Ritter, who I was in love with in highschool (he’s the singer of the band, The All-American Rejects.)

Fave quote: [giving a makeover to the girls, in the photo above] “Ladies, always accentuate your eyes. The eyes are the nipples of the face.”

Clueless (1995)

Clueless

Clueless (buy here): A comedy about Cher, a privileged, spoiled popular high school girl. Yes, that’s it. But somehow, this movie is a classic – and for good reason. Such a great film, and I always feel so nostalgic for the good old 90s watching this.

Fave quote: “Old people can be so sweet.”

… Et voila. Whether you’re in for a good laugh or need to be cheered up (maraon chick flick watching sessions are great for break ups), these movies are sure to delight you!

Either way, chick flick discussion time! Tell me: what are your favorite chick flicks? Are any of your favorites on the list? Please share! I always need new ones to check out.

  1. I don’t really like chick flicks, especially ones like Mean Girls and Clueless. I can’t stand the, how do you say that? ‘Bitchiness’, haha. However, I dó like My Big Fat Greek Wedding, it’s so funny! That moment when her father starts to ‘cry’ and says “Why do you want to lea-ea-eave me?”: priceless.

    • I loved her dad! “Why you no marry? You’re looking… old.” :P Although all the characters were hilarious, what a great movie Love the aunt too!

  2. Oh I LOVED Mean Girls as a 16 y/o girl. Also Clueless! I can’t really think of any chick flicks right now… I think the last one I saw was Bridesmaids.. it was pretty funny!

  3. Nayleigh says:

    I love this list.. I always want to add The Notebook! (: Ryan Gosling <3<3

  4. Good movie taste! My Big Fat Greek Wedding never fails to crack me up, and the lump-twin thing still manages to freak me out. I also like the part where she’s like “Bunn-dt cake?” “IT HAS A HOLE IN IT!”
    Another favorite is Meet the Parents. Not sure if it counts as a chick flick, but I LOVE that film.

    • HAHAHA I love the aunt, she is hilarious. I want to be like her one day.

      “Meat? You don’t eat no meat?! It’s OK… I make lamb.”

  5. Great picks! Im so gonna re-watch those chick flicks now! Ah, the wonderful memories!~ time to grab popcorn to enjoy these movies! I love this post! Awesome job!

    • Yay, glad you like it, thanks love :) I wanna watch Easy A again, love that movie (and Emma’s parents in the movie is sooo funny).

  6. Lysanne says:

    • Hey Lysanne, oh thank you so much, I didn’t know you knew about my blog. :)

      I’m glad you found some new ones! Which ones haven’t you seen yet? xx

  7. Mean Girls is my favourite EVER. I can recite lines from that movies. LOL

    • OK, yay. Now I know I can quote the movie with you and you’ll understand! Haha my friend got a promotion so I told her “you go, Glen Coco!” and she was all “wtf?” Sigh.

  8. Michelle says:

    I like “Hot Chick” and “White Chick”. They are hilarious!

  9. Legally blonde! That show and Reese Witherspoon. Hilarious.

  10. Nice list! One of my fave chick flicks I would add is Bride Wars!

    • Ooh totally forgot abut that one, I liked that too! Haha… the blue hair. XD Kate Hudson makes some great chick flicks!

  11. Wow I loved reading this post! You covered some of my favourites! Mean Girls, Clueless, The Devil Wears Prada! Other classics: The Notebook, Bride Wars, Legally Blonde, 10 Things I Hate About You, Bring It On… I could go on forever!

  12. Sharmani says:

    Awesome reads! The Ally McBeal an American legal dramedy series which aired from 1997 to 2002 is my fave chick flick. Twined in between legal stuff, lust and romance with laughter and moments of real life scenarios just makes me so glued to the tv set

  13. *GASP*
    Figured Bridget Jones’ Diary would be in here. I thought it was a remarkable movie and I’ll never get bored with it. Have you seen this new HBO serious called Girls? It’s just ridiculously amazing and I finished the whole season in a day.
    Sixteen Candles and Pretty in Pink are seriously good, too. Epic classics that pretty much started the whole chick-flick genre. <3

    • Haha, forgive me Genevieve! I haven’t seen that movie is aaaaages so I actually forgot all about (come to think of it, I forgot what it’s about too!) A breakup, right?

      I haven’t seen Girls though I’ve heard it’s like “Sex and the City” but with younger girls? We don’t have it here in Singapore yet but I hope so… I never got the appeal of Sex and the City but I tried watching it a few years back and it was pretty addictive! (Minus all the sex scenes, I hate them haha)

  14. I LOVE chick flicks! But only the old school ones because somehow none of the newer ones are as good! Clueless was one of the first chick flicks I saw and I remember being so enamored by Cher’s computerised wardrobe! :) I also LOVE How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, the chemistry between Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey was amazing! And that yellow dress, goodness did Kate Hudson werk it! I recently watched Mean Girls again after so long and now that I’m older I understand the script better and needless to say, Tina Fey’s mind works in magical ways, haha!

    I also love A Walk To Remember (only Nicholas Sparks movie I can sit through again and again) and Easy A (LOVE LOVE LOVE Emma Stone!). My other personal faves are Miss Congeniality and Princess DIaries 2 :)

  15. Renee these are all great flicks AND I awoke to rain in LV!
    Clueless was my fave of your pics, and you can’t leave out “When Harry Met Sally” that movie is dating me, but it was hilarious. The fake orgasm scene is a movie classic by Meg Ryan!

    • Ooh what a great day, haha! What do you do when it’s raining? I love rain so if it rained so infrequently here I would go out and sit in the rain :-P

      Ohh when Harry Met Sally… I can’t remember that one. I remember You’ve Got Mail, and do you remember What Women Want?! LOL. Wasn’t that Meg Ryan as well? So, so funny.

  16. I love the house bunny. It came out around the time when being emo was cool. I love how it shows that no matter what kind of girl you are, you still need to take care of yourself, beauty wise. That while it is great that you have good personality, you still need to “dress up” and be proper. Make up is not about being fake, it’s about enhancing yourself, well you get the gist.
    I think every girl should watch the house bunny.

    I love these movies! Some of them I haven’t watched yet. This post feels so girly lol but these movies are pretty good especially my big fat Greek wedding. Didn’t we see it together nee nee? When it first came out I don’t remember… A walk to remember is awesome too always so touching made me cry

    • Ah, Rosa! I don’t know, but you know what… I think we did see it together! I vaguely remember seeing it in the cinema… I think you might be right!

      You need to watch all of these on a date night ;) They are so funny, I am sure your hubby would love them as well! x

  18. I’ve only seen Mean girls, Easy A, The devil wears Prada and The house Bunny; the one that I really love is Easy A is awesome; but Mean girls is the chick flick for excellence. I have to see the others (principally My Big Fat Greek Wedding).

    What about Sex and the city movies, they are very entertaining, every time is the first one on TV I sit and watch it.

    • Oh, you MUST see My Big Fat Greek Wedding! So so so hilarious.

      And yes, I really liked the first Sex and the City movie as well! Although I wouldn’t say it was my favorite. But I will definitely watch it if it comes on TV.

  19. Renee… Great great picks! I have to say I was quite surprised to have enjoyed The House Bunny. I love how she pronounces names in a deep voice to help her remember them, it’s actually a pretty good idea. I loved Easy A, so good. I wasn’t a big fan of a Walk to Remember- to much of a tear-jerker. Oh I think The Sweetest Thing deserves a mention, loved it. The site looks great by the way! Super clean.. Love. Messaging you soon! Hope you are feeling better.

    Xx

    • Thanks Taylor, I’m really loving the new design too, I am glad you like it! Easier on my eyes, too, haha!

      I remember seeing The Sweetest Thing! But I can’t remember what it was about :x Haha I’ve seen too many! Was it the one with Cameron Diaz?

      And no worries, take your time. I am feeling much better, thank you :) xx

  20. Not sure if it is a chick flick but i like Remember Me! It’s a little like A Walk To Remember. The ending of Remember Me is SAD! I cried so much :(

  21. I love chick flicks! All of the chick flicks reviewed here that I’ve already seen I LOVE so I can’t wait to watch the ones I haven’t yet. :) You’ve got great taste, girl!

  22. i love clueless!!
    oh gosh that “inside my lump was my twin” is so disturbing!
    Now I want to watch Easy A and She’s Out of My League :D

  23. I hate you Renee! I watched A Walk to Remember for the first time after seeing this post and ah, my heart. Haha, no but seriously thank you, I don’t know why I’d never heard of it before, I guess because I was kind of young when it came out, but then again that’s not really an excuse! I loved the film, the surprise, the characters, I had noted it was based on a Sparks novel and was waiting for the tears, and they hit me, hard. Def adding to my favourites (alongside my absolute fav rom-com How to lose a guy in 10 days!). Great list! xx

  24. I like some but I can’t stand some. One of the ones I remember from when I was in high school was “Win a date with Ted Hamilton” … and how can I leave out “The Notebook”, “Cinderella Story” (Chad Michael Murray in here was such a charmer), “What a Girl Wants” (Oliver James! Ah! Love his voice too), “She’s the Man” and “Bend it Like Beckham” (omg Jonathan Rhys Meyers). Another one on the same wavelength of joke as “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” because it also has Jason Segel is “I Love You, Man” :p

    This gives me an idea of making a tag blog post – hehehe

  25. Great list! I loved Clueless and How to Lose a Girl, too funny!
