The Go-To Chick Movies

Girliness ahead. Beware.

I read Regina’s post about chick flicks — and it made me contemplate my favorite “chick flicks”. For me, a chick flick is female centered and just kind of easy to watch. It doesn’t require a great amount of attention to detail and filmography. It’s got a good plot that isn’t insipid, isn’t flat stupid, not full of overused tropes, has the feels, and makes me have a good chuckle.

One of my all time favorite chick flick is Pride and Prejudice. It’s a movie I can curl up on the couch with a glass of wine and just wind down with:


Another of my favorite chick movies is Juno. It’s easy, has comedy, a not-stupid plot, and definitely gives me the feels:


My third favorite has to be Easy A — for a movie about high school, it is insanely clever, has some awesome laughs, and is just easy to chill out and watch:


Another very clever chick movie which gives me the feels is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It is a movie that makes me cry every time I watch it. I can’t explain it:


Mona Lisa Smile is another one that I can just curl up with and watch. It’s a well done period piece, with well written characters and a great plot.


This is a newer one, and don’t judge me, but I’m just in love with it. The live action Cinderella. I just adore it. Can’t explain why. May be Rob Stark and his cod piece. Again, don’t judge me.


And speaking of period pieces — I love me some Fassbender:


Last, but not least, I love Sex and the City. It’s clever, it gives me the feels, and as I get older, every time I rewatch the series, I come out with new understanding.


And there’s many more.

What I look for in a chick flick is that it’s smart and not just pandering. Oh there’s a female lead, but it’s just not pandering with a bunch of female oriented cliches and the plot isn’t overdone or trite.

  1. Wow the only thing I have seen off that list is Sex And The City and I haven’t seen the movie, I don’t think, I might have, I don’t remember, I guess I could have, I don’t know.

    My wife’s chick flick movie list is a lot different to that, either that or she doesn’t watch chick flicks.

    I think you need help!
