Saturday, February 26 by Lori Boyd

These 10 ultimate chick flicks are perfect for a girl’s night. Most guys don’t appreciate so these ultimate chick flicks but for women they’re the ones we watch over and over.

  1. "Fried Green Tomatoes". This 1991 film starring Kathy Bates, Mary Stuart Masterson, Mary Louise Parker and Jessica Tandy tells the story of southern women and their struggles in the past and today. The strength of the female characters makes this one of the best chick flicks to watch.
  2. "You’ve Got Mail". Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks star in this movie about a bookshop owner and a mega bookstore mogul who carry on a relationship first by email and then in person. It has the perfect fairytale ending.
  3. "Pretty Woman". Although a movie about a prostitute and a rich businessman doesn’t sound like one of your typical chick flicks, this one is actually just a good old-fashioned love story with a twist.
  4. "Sleepless in Seattle". This is another one of the Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan chick flicks that make women swoon. A widowed father’s son tries to find a wife for him via a radio show.
  5. "Notting Hill". Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant star in this tale of a movie star and a small London bookstore owner who deal with paparazzi and misunderstandings before they can find love.
  6. "Steel Magnolias". This is a classic among chick flicks.  The story of southern women with an all-star cast of Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, Olympia Dukakis and Darrell Hannah. Julia Roberts won an Oscar for her role as the sick daughter.
  7. "When Harry Met Sally". The ironic wit of Billy Crystal and the quirky Meg Ryan meet when the drive to New York after college. The film chronicles the years of their up and down relationship.
  8. "Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood". This movie is one of the greatest chick flicks because all of the main characters are strong women. The film explores the relationship between this tight knit group of women.
  9. "Bridget Jones’s Diary". This is the perfect example of chick flicks that make women feel more normal. The neurotic Bridget Jones is someone most women can relate to.
  10. "Love Actually". This film follows eight couples in London just before Christmas. This is one of those chick flicks that make women feel hopeful about love and relationships.
