For girls that are looking for some fun-loving and sassy movies that they can relate to, one good idea is to look at a popular chick flicks list. "Chick flick" is a term that is used to describe movies that cater to a predominantly female audience, with plots that are often centered around romance. The films can either be emotional and dramatic or lighthearted and frothy. Chick flicks often lack elements of action and violence that are common in other genres of movies.
