10 Funniest Chick Flicks

Saturday, February 19 by Olivia Joseph

In a search for the 10 funniest chick flicks, we shuffled through a lot of namby-pamby fluff and discovered that some of these were actually funny. Don't take our word for it, but for a tolerabl date night that will appeal to her and the endorphins, give these ten funniest chick flicks a try.

  1. "When Harry Met Sally" (1989) – Probably one of the best. Directed by Rob Reiner, this is the flick where Harry (Billy Crystal) staunchly believes that men and women cannot be friends because of the sex thing. Cleverly written, you'll live this one through. We promise.
  2. "Forget Paris" (1995) – Another Billy Crystal gem. Crystal plays a man who flies to Paris to bury his father. He meets and falls in love with a woman who works for the airline. The story of their relationship with all of its quirks and rough patches is told in flashback by a group of their friends who are waiting for them at a restaurant.
  3. "The Ugly Truth" (2009) – The battle of the sexes to the ninth degree. Gerard Butler and Charlize Theron spice up the chemistry in this love/hate flick where all bets are off.
  4. "Something's Gotta Give" (2003) – Awkwardness is king in this chick flick about an aging music exec, played by Jack Nicholson, who suffers a heart attack at the home of his latest trophy girlfriend's mother, played by Diane Keaton.
  5. "Clueless" (1995) – Loosely based on Jane Austen's "Emma," this chick flick follows the superficial days of Cher, a rich high schooler whose favorite thing is to play matchmaker and help her friends avoid fashion faux pas.
  6. "Father of the Bride" (1991) – Steve Martin nails this remake, playing the nervous father of a soon-to-be bride. 
  7. "It's a Boy Girl Thing" (2006) – Two swor high school enemies, a polite Yale-hopeful and an obnoxious football jock, end up trapped in each other's body in this chick flick.
  8. "Just Friends" (2005) – Ryan Reynolds plays a man who has become a successful music manager and womanizer due to the rejection he suffered from his high school best friend, the pretty Jamie. When a delayed plane brings him home after several years, he sees her again and tries to get past the "friend barrier."
  9. "Mean Girls" (2004) – Tina Fey wrote and directed this comedy flick about 16- year-old Cady Heron, the home-schooled daughter of zoologist parents who enters public school for the first time, encountering a whole new world of the cliqueish teenage jungle.
  10. "Th Devil Wears Prada" (2006) – Andrea Sachs is fresh out of journalism school, ready to tackle the world in her secondhand jacket. Instead, she ends up working as the assistant to the insane chief editor of the most prestigious fashion magazine.

    Oops, you made an error. The film – “The Ugly Truth” – it was Katherine Heigl not Charlize Theron in the film.
