In honor of the 10 year anniversary of Mean Girls, here is a list of eight girly movies you should probably see before you die.

1. Mean Girls

Mean girls is highly underrated.  As frequently quoted as it is, a lot of the more meaningful quotes are overlooked.  As light and fluffy as this movie seems on the surface, it has some great messages.

2. Bridesmaids

Bridesmaids is one of the funniest movies to date; the cast is full of hilarious, talented women.  If you’ve read my 55 Movies series, you’ll know I have only fantastic things to say about this film.
This speech given by Megan (Melissa McCarthy) is so motivating and fantastic.

3. Friends With Benefits

I was actually surprised at how good this movie was, and although it does fall into more of the Chick Flick category, Mila Kunis’ character’s journey through the movie is pretty realistic compared to other modern Chick Flicks which present women as marriage-craving-baby-wanting-timebombs.

4. She’s The Man

When it comes to adapted Shakespearean works in modern settings, She’s The Man takes the cake.  Twelfth Night is already my favorite Shakespeare play, so maybe I’m biased, but this film is good stuff.

5. 13 Going On 30

One of those cheesy movies that puts friendships and true success into perspective.

6. Enchanted

This movie is a fantastic Disney film which pokes fun at classic Disney cliches and Chick Flicks while maintaining a great plot, great character development, and great writing.  While keeping with classic Disney themes, Enchanted puts a modern twist on happily ever after.

7. Win A Date With Tad Hamilton
Image

Okay, this is definitely a Chick Flick, BUT if you haven’t seen it yet, you need to, just so you can walk away wondering who knows how many smiles you secretly have.

8. Legally Blonde

Finally, if you want a movie to pump you up about being a lady (or just ladies in general), look no further.  Elle Woods’ success in this movie is an adorable underdog story but also light and fun along the way.

Honorable mentions:
Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion

John Tucker Must Die

(note: i tried to include non-romantic movies, so this isn’t so much a chick flick list as a list of girly-ish movies.)
