The Perfect Chick Flick for the Perfect Moment

Do you ever feel completely lost when scrolling through the Netflix only to find yourself watching Season 8 of Grey’s Anatomy again or find yourself spending 20 minutes at your local RedBox just to find the “perfect” movie?  Well, girl, I gotchu.  Here’s a list that’ll keep you on your toes and help you pick and old chick flick favorites for any mood.

  2. Revenge of the Bridesmaids

To Watch with your Girlfriends After a Breakup

What better way to remind yourself that true love doesn’t exist than to watch a handful of Nicholas Sparks movies right?!  Just kidding, if you’re going to cry, you’ll probably prefer to cry over a romance that wasn’t yours, and these just hit the right spot.

Note: These movies pair best with a tub of vanilla ice cream and sprinkles or hot cocoa with extra marshmallows.

  1. A Walk to Remember 
  2. The Best of Me
  3. Safe Haven

  8. Titanic
  9. The Vow 
  10. The Switch

To Get Motivation

  1. Legally Blonde (I think this is my ultimate favorite when it comes wanting to feel motivated to do something, whether it’s simply cleaning my room or preparing for an interview.  Her “get my sh*t together was totally sexy!)  
  2. Pitch Perfect 1
  3. Forgetting Sarah Marshall (motivation…to move on!)
  4. Sydney White

To Watch During “That Time of the Month”

These are what I’d consider “medium-intensity” films, meaning they might make you tear up–not cry, or might make you chuckle–not full on guffaw.  Pair any of these films with a craving, and you’re good to go.

  3. Dirty Dancing Havana Nights
  4. Bad Hair Day
  5. Radio Rebel

  11. Sex Tape 

To Find Hope in Humanity

  1. The Blind Side 
  2. Pursuit of Happiness
  3. The Pregnancy Project
  4. Gimme Shelter
  5. Forrest Gump  
  6. My Sister’s Keeper

I hope you enjoy this list and use it to your advantage, whether it’s for comfort on the February 14th, Single Awareness Day, or a big laugh with your 15 girlfriends in your pj’s celebrating your 18th.
