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 (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 (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 (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 (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 (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 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 (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 (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 (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!
