Here Are 13 Great Chick Flicks You Need To Watch Right Now

Here are some fun movies you can watch to laugh, cry, or be inspired.

When we say "chick flicks", we mostly mean movies that have strong, funny, charismatic female characters taking us on a journey as they navigate through their own lives. Maybe there's some drama, conflicts, epiphanies, or just some good old-fashioned fun...these movies can be anything from your classic rom-com to a moving drama. Also, we aren't saying 'no' to the hot guys in the lead either. Here's a list of chick flicks that will inevitably leave you in stitches or in tears. Some may even inspire you to go all out to achieve your dreams. Which one is your all-time fave?

1. Mean Girls

This slick, witty 2004 teen comedy is such a great watch. The characters are now iconic and let's be honest... a lot of us feel personally victimized by Regina George, right? Did you know Tina Fey is both a screenwriter and co-star of the film? 


2. Legally Blonde

Elle Woods proves there's so much more to someone than meets the eyes and proves that she's no "blonde/airhead" stereotype when she sets her eyes on a new goal: Harvard Law School. So much girl power in this movie!


3. Clueless

The 1995 classic features Alicia Silverstone as lovable, stylish Cher Horowitz as a high schooler in Beverly Hills. The coming of age film is a loose adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma


4. Miss Congeniality

Grace Hart is an FBI agent who has to go undercover as beauty queen Gracie Lou Hart to investigate a terrorist threat in an international beauty pageant. Sandra Bullock is a totally tough, badass who learns to get in touch with her sensitive side making this such an endearing, fun film to watch.


5. Bridget Jones Diary 

A single woman, Bridget Jones writes a diary and is determined to improve herself. In the 2001 romantic comedy film, she ends up being caught up in her love life where she has complicated feelings for Mark Dacy and Daniel Cleaver. 


6. Enchanted

Enchanted is a 2007 American musical fantasy romantic comedy film that takes on the world of fairytales in such a creative way. Princess-to-be Giselle, played by Amy Adams, is banished from the magical land of Andalasia and ends up in the live-action world of modern-day Manhattan. Will she find her happily ever after?


7. Ghost

This one is for all you die-hard romantics. Written by Bruce Joel Rubin, and starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, Tony Goldwyn, and Rick Aviles, one man's spirit takes a psychic's help in order to save his one true love. The chemistry between Moore and Swayze is sizzling!


8. Pretty Woman

The 1990 American romantic comedy film revolves around Edward, a rich entrepreneur, and Vivian, a sex worker, who despite coming from different worlds end up falling in love.


9. Dirty Dancing 

Who doesn't love watching a film where Patrick Swayze is a dancing heartthrob? This 1987 American romantic drama dance film will give you a dose of '80s nostalgia.


10. She's The Man

A modern-day adaptation of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, this funny film follows Viola (Amanda Bynes) who disguises as her brother to play in the school's male soccer team. She ends up developing feelings for Duke (Channing Tatum) and things get complicated. 


11. The Notebook

Allie and Noah's love story makes for the perfect girls' night movie. There is romance, drama, and a few steamy scenes. Oh and Ryan Gosling, of course!


12. Girls Trip

Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Regina Hall, and Tiffany Haddish go on a girls trip to New Orleans to attend Essence Fest. It's a great film on girl friendships and has some great in-your-face comedy bits. 


13. Magic Mike 

Channing Tatum stars as a sexy stripper in the first film and he's a retired one in the sequel. He's hot in both. Do we need to say more? Alongside Tatum are Hollywood hotties Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, Matthew Bomer, and Adam Rodriguez.
