Time for a chick flick marathon with the best chick flicks of all time!
Get out the wine and ice cream – it’s time to get into the chick flicks, but not just any chick flicks… only the best chick flicks will do.
From the classics to our new favourites, we’ll run you down our top chick flicks of all time.
1. Sleepless in Seattle
A lonely widower, a cute child who just wants his dad to be happy again and… Meg Ryan.
This 1993 movie stars a very young Tom Hanks, who ends up on the phone to a radio station under the pseudonym sleepless in Seattle. Clever right?
Long story short, Annie (Meg Ryan) hears him, and our hearts just melt from then on for this pair.
2. Pretty Woman
We’re going to stay in the 90s for just a bit longer, because this movie about a sex worker played by the stunning Julia Roberts who meets a cashed up gazillionare (Richard Gere) who just wants a pretty woman to take to social events.
The end result is an unlikely pairing and the rise of an underdog through, among other things, the power of a makeover.
Share the smugness of the moment Vivian (Roberts) shoves it to the snooty shop assistants who thought she wasn’t good enough to be in their store.
3. Dirty Dancing
Time to get a bit of song and dance into the mix and ensure you’re having the time of your life.
Patrick Swayze never looked so good and all it took was a singlet, jeans and of course executing the impossibly graceful lift of Jennifer Grey who plays Frances, or as you’d know her; Baby.
And no one is putting her in the corner, or leaving this movie on the shelf.
Perhaps one of the best chick flicks of the 90s this high school coming of age films, Clueless has everything you need.
Alicia Silverstone plays Cher, a young girl who is navigating her Beverley Hills social life and dating with a very unique brand of style. Romance, killer outfits and of course the iconic “whatever” sign that haunted us well into the 21st century.
5. The Notebook
When talking best chick flicks ever of course we aren’t going to leave out The Notebook.
A love-story that spans many years, wars and of course handwritten letters, the Notebook has gone down in history as one of the best chick flicks ever made.
And how could it not, a rough but charming Ryan Gosling (who plays Noah), a refined but fiery Rachel McAdams (who plays Allie) and two hours of longing looks and falling in love.
6. About Time
While we’re on the topic of McAdams – is it safe to say McAdams is the queen of the best chick flicks? We can’t help but mention this absolutely brilliant film.
Family, falling in love and time travel – was there ever a more winning combination?
We promise this version of the tale is not as gut-wrenching as the Time Traveller’s wife, which we will not be speaking of without a pre-prepared box of tissues.
7. Bridget Jones’s Diary
We weren’t just going to list films where everything is picture perfect.
Instead, we give you a heart-warming yet cringe-worthy tale of woe, clutsy stuff ups and yes… love.
Renée Zellweger as Bridget Jones has become an icon of the frustration of single life, followed by the confusion of dating. And she does this all while writing down wonderfully British lines into her diary like: it is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces.
8. Pride and Prejudice
Based on the 1813 book by Jane Austin, this movie adaption stands out from all the rest, mostly because of the hot hot chemistry between Keira Knightly and Matthew Macfadyen.
That and the fact the film is one of our favourite period pieces ever.
So much etiquette, so little time.
9. Crazy Rich Asians
We all dream of marrying rich. But for Rachel Chu (played by Constance Wu) she didn’t know the kind of money she was marrying into.
Sound like a nice surprise? Barely, when you’ve got your future husband’s crazy rich family judging every move you make.
Still, the glamour, the outfits and the sheer opulence make for a fun vacay, and a damn good film.
10. Legally Blonde
One of the best underdog films there is.
Everyone sees Elle Woods for what she is on the outside, a pretty in pink sorority queen with an eye for fashion.
No one quite takes her seriously when she enrolls in law school to follow her ex-boyfriend who unexpectedly dumped her.
And that was their mistake. There are few scenes more satisfying than Elle Woods schooling people who underestimated her on the law.
Go get em girl.
