It’s finally spring! Or rather it finally feels like spring. And with the warmer weather, I get the urge to watch some movies with sunshine and flowers and kissing in the rain. Now if we’ve discussed this before, you know that I’m picky about my chick flicks. I do prefer a good story with character growth rather than just the happy ending. The six chick flicks below are a few of my very favorites that I default to when I need to watch something girly. So if you’re needing an evening of self-care or hosting a girls night, grab on of these from the library for your viewing pleasure.
P.S. I Love You: Who can resist any movie that stars Gerard Butler? Since being married, I’ve been able to appreciate this story of love, grief and healing more, even if it does begin with a funeral.
About Time: A sweet story about a relationship between a guy and a girl including how they met, getting married, having kids, losing a parent and other daily living type things. But did I mention that he’s a time traveller?
Letters to Juliet: Love doesn’t have to be young to be real and this flick gives you both ends. A young writer travelling in fair Verona gets caught up in some real life Romeo and Juliet stories.
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days: Okay so this one is more on the duh chick flick side but I still think it’s hilarious. She’s writing an article about how to lose a guy in 10 days. He’s made a bet that he can bring a certain girl to an important party. Will their jobs make meatloaf of the possibilities?
The Age of Adaline: The one time a guy takes a girl home to meet his family and she’s not quite who he thinks she is. Love, risk, false identities, it’s all in this one. P.S. Dearest Carl loves this movie with me!
My Big Fat Greek Wedding: You guys, I just adore this movie. A Greek girl, a non-Greek guy, kinda cliche… until you throw in her extremely Greek family. The kind with the Greek flag painted on their garage door. This is the movie you will find yourself quoting because it makes you laugh.
Yes, all of these movies are modern and not a one of them is a period piece. Be proud of me. Take a watch and tell me what you think! In the meantime, what chick flicks should I be renting from the library?
