Warning: Spoilers if you [somehow] haven't seen these movies yet. The themes of this list: girliness, love, unrequited love, fate, plus a splash of humor and ditziness. Time to grab a pint of ice cream (and maybe a box of tissue for a couple of these) and let your brain melt with the tube to these fine selections.
Like I said in my micro review, The Notebook made me cry and cry and cry. Total chick flick extraordinaire! Not too chick-ish to the point where guys wouldn't watch it though. Really touching and heartbreaking love story.
The original Mean Girls, except the girls are less conniving and are, well, genuinely clueless. I loved the entire cast. Alicia Silverstone + Stacey Dash + Brittany Murphey + Donald Faison + Paul Rudd = Amazingness. I love how Cher takes it upon herself to "adopt" a "tragically unhip" girl as a means of doing a good deed.
What's not to love about this movie? I absolutely love the Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino combo. They're super cute together and so is the plot. lol @ them claiming that they invented post-its at their high school reunion.
The Sweetest Thing is just that! Every time one of my gal pal goes through a break up, this is the movie I always bring over, along with a pint of ice cream, of course. The Chinese restaurant scene = Win. That scene was actually played as part of a male revue act that I saw once. For obvious reasons.
I thought that I was going to hate this movie because of the name, but I ended up loving it. I find Elle Woods' trials and tribulations so endearing, and how things end up unintentionally working in her favor.
I love how Carrie was proposed to with a pair of Manolo Blahniks and was promised a big closet instead of a big diamond ring. It was cute how her best gal pals took care of her after she was left at the altar. It was also cute how months later, she ended up marrying Big anyways, and in the white dress suit that she had initially planned on wearing. It was full of "awwwwwwwww" moments.
I watched this movie like, five times on a flight to Tokyo after a bad break up. Yes, it kinda brought on the waterworks and it didn't help that Coldplay's The Scientist was the theme song to this film... but at least Josh Hartnett is hot, right? The plot's really twisted and can be confusing, hence having to watch it a few times (hey, there was no wikipedia to explain it to me on the plane!).
Dude, there's a magical crab in this movie! As a food lover, I can appreciate how food plays into this movie. I wish a magical crab would come along, wave its magical little claw at me and turn me into a celebrity chef whose food makes people fall in love with me.
