I love a good chick flick and I know plenty of other people who do too. Chick flicks are my favourite type of film (most of the time) as they simply lift my mood a lot. They make me laugh, they make me cry, they inspire me, they warm my little hopeless romantic heart.
1. Mean Girls
Mean Girls has become a modern classic. Almost everyone knows at least once quote from it (to read my Mean Girls Day post click here!) and I feel like most people have seen it. Okay, apart from one of my friends but some of my other friends and I are going to make him watch it in half term I think.
2. Legally Blonde
When I was about 12/13 my obsession with Legally Blonde and complete and utter adoration of Elle Woods began. I’m such a hardcore fan of both the first and second film, I may actually have to dedicate a whole post to it at some point. I love how it goes against the stereotypes of blonde girls and I’m not going to lie, Elle Woods is my feminist icon.
3. 500 Days of Summer
I only watched this sometime last year I think. WHY DIDN’T I WATCH IT SOONER?! It subverts the romcom genre so well and I love the way the plot flashes through time. You’ll understand what I mean if you’ve seen the film. I love the development arcs for both of the main characters too – they both grow so much throughout the whole thing.
4. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
This is one of my absolute favourite chick flicks! It’s so cheesy in parts but I don’t care. That’s how chick flicks are meant to be, right? I love the characters, they make me laugh. This is kind of my comfort film. Or one of them, at least.
I’m pretty sure I discovered this film in year 7 or 8 when my Jane Austen obsession was Just in its little baby-bird phase and I hadn’t yet read about one of my favourites: Mr Knightley. The story is silly and lighthearted and it shames me that I didn’t get a lot of the Austen references the first time I saw the film. A must-see for any Austen fan!
6. Love, Rosie
I read the book version of this (by Cecelia Ahern) ages ago. I loved it and read it within a few days I think, despite its length. Then, whilst at a sleepover with my friend Katie (katieswaytohappy.blogspot.co.uk), we decided to watch the film as she’d seen it before and I couldn’t wait to see the adaption of the book I loved. I was certainly not disappointed. It was so true to the book in so many aspects (apart from some timings). I laughed, I cried, and everything in between.
