A Girls Guide to the best chick flicks

Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner. We all know this line from the ultimate chick flick movie right? If you don’t – we forgive you. For now.

We’ve compiled THE list of movies to help you through the extra time we’re all facing at home. What better time than to rewatch or discover the classics we consider to be epic. If you haven’t seen any or all of these – we won’t judge.

What movies would make your list? We would love to know!

Dirty Dancing

“Nobody puts baby in a corner” is the Patrick Swayze one liner from this movie. Raise your hand if you have seen this movie 10 times. Or maybe 50. Or 100.

PS. I love you

Bring out the tissues for this one. You laugh, you cry (most of the movie), but heck it’s good.

Busting out the 80’s with this young Tom Cruise classic. Remember “Kokomo” from the Beach Boys?

The Holiday

Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet (not to mention a very charming younger Jude Law) make for a warm hearted good feel kinda feeling movie. We’re also adding the Cotswolds onto our future must see travel list.

 Thelma and Louise

When you can’t see your bestie, live vicariously through this epic movie on best friends with attitude meanwhile having a good old perv on a very young Brad Pitt.

One’s journey of self discovery through the travels of Bali, Italy and India. Gee Julia Roberts is good.

Under the Tuscan Sun

The jaw dropping Italian landscape is second to none.

Sex and the City

We all know of a Carrie, Samantha, Miranda or Charlotte in our lives. Which one are you?

Coyote Ugly

It has sass, style and sexiness all wrapped into one. A goodie.

Jerry Maquire

Agree to disagree but “You had me at hello” would pull at any heart strings.

Yes we weren’t going to forget this movie. Come on, we aren’t that cold hearted.
