It’s a sacred, timeless tradition of chocolate, gossip, laughter and tears where girls can just be girls. That’s right, I’m talking about a girls night in, a night where it’s totally acceptable to ditch the guy and ditch the dress for best friends and sweatpants. And as every girl knows, no girls night in is complete without one important accessory — no, I’m not talking about the wine…though that never hurts — I’m talking about chick flicks! Whether you’re in the mood to laugh, cry or both, I guarantee the following movies won’t disappoint.
You may have graduated high school (and college), but that doesn’t mean you’ve graduated past all the drama and fun of adolescence. These movies will have you longing for the days of backpacks and binders, instead of briefcases and bills…but only for a moment.
- Mean Girls
- 10 Things I Hate About You
- The Breakfast Club
Ready for Romance:
Whether you’re nursing a broken heart or happily dating “the one,” everyone needs a little romance now and then. The following movies will make you believe that true love really does exist, no matter if you’ve already found it or not.

- Love Actually
