4 Lets Talk // Chick Flicks

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

Top 5 feel good chick flicks of all time? That's a pretty ballsy statement so maybe instead I'll say 5 really really really great movies that every one (chick or not) should probably see at least a million times in their life. Movies I can pop in and smile ear to ear every.single.time. I watch them. And trust me it's a lot. Cheesy flicks where you can guess the ending before it begins. You know the kind. 

annnnnd go:

10 Things I Hate About You

 It's not everyday you find a girl who'll flash someone to get you out of detention.

Iv said it before and Ill say it till Im blue in the face. Best.movie.ever. Perfection even. Heath Ledger (may he RIP) Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Julia Styles, Alex Mack (don't act like you know her by any other name) 
If you have never seen it then shame on you. 
but let me break it down
It's just your typical
Boy meets girl. Girl can't date unless girls anti social sister dates. Boy gets boy to pay boy to date sister.
Boy serenades girl on the bleachers
Boys fall in love with girls and vise versa.

It's so quotable
 and as a side note I own the 'Kat.. Cat!' cup. I found it in a random coffee shop one day and it was the best purchase of my life.

Dirty Dancing

Me? I'm scared of everything. I'm scared of what I saw, I'm scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you

While if you have never seen 10 Things Id be ashamed, if you have never seen Dirty Dancing then there is seriously something wrong with the world.
It is a classic. Classic people.
Poor boy meets rich girl. 
Separated by cultural barriers these two come together and dance the night away. 
Also? Patrick Swayze (may he RIP) 

Ever After

A bird may love a fish, signore, but where will they live?
 Then I shall have to make you wings. 

Less obvious than the last this is still a must see in my book. Iv been a Drew Barrymore fan for like evskis and this is one of her best rolls. Who doesn't like a classic Cinderella story? 
It's sweet and cheesy and always good for some happy tears.

Pretty Woman

Did I mention, my leg is 44" from hip to toe. So basically we are talking about 88" of therapy, wrapped around you for the bargain price of $3000 dollars. 

Do I even really have to explain this one? Is there really someone out there who has never seen pretty woman?
It's probably the only movie out there that makes little girls aspire to be hookers. amiright?

Never Been Kissed

That thing, that moment, when you kiss someone and everything around becomes hazy and the only thing in focus is you and this person and you realize that that person is the only person that you're supposed to kiss for the rest of your life, and for one moment you get this amazing gift and you want to laugh and you want to cry because you feel so lucky that you found it and so scared that that it will go away all at the same time. 

Again not such an obvious one, but still a great. And alas another Drew flick. This movie makes me laugh out loud and it kinda makes me want to go back to high school as an undercover reporter and have a secret affair with Mr Coulson. Immmeeaaann wouldn't you?
Also I now aspire to be kissed on a pitchers mount

So there you have it my top 5 chick flicks. I think Im going to come back and break down the top 5 movies in several categories just for giggles so be on the look out! 

Did your favorite make my list? If not what would you add?!
Im always down for a good chick flick!

I love the first four movies but I've never seen the last one.....I love that line from Ever After about the bird may love a fish! I can still hear Drew saying it! I love a good chick/flick romance movie. For me at the top of my list would be Pride & Prejudice. No matter how many times I see it it never gets old!
