It's the time of year where more evening are spent cuddling up under a duvet with a cheesy film. Whether just relaxing or fighting off a cold/hangover (I think I can remember those!) Watching a chic flick is a perfect way to waste a couple of hours.
I'm not going to get all 'film critic on' you, so for proper reviews go to IMDB but
these are just a few of my favourites...
Bridget Jones's Diary
"No, I like you very much, just as you are"
How could this not be in here? I love this film! I think everyone can relate to Bridget. Whether it's just not feeling good enough, feeling paranoid, choosing the wrong men, or a problematic family member, there are so many things to make you laugh and cry at this film. The opening scene when she's in her pjs singing 'All by Myself' is just classic. And of course there's the fight scene, brilliant! I'm not usually a fan of British rom-coms but this one I could watch again and again.
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
"Does Princess Sophia want to come out and play?"
This film makes me laugh a lot. Kate Hudson is writing an article for a magazine on how to date a guy so badly that he leaves you, while the guy in question has a bet going with his mates that he can make a girl fall in love with him. Naturally you know they're going to fall for each other and there will be loads of ups and downs along the way. Totally predictable, but sometimes that's just what you want. It's so easy to half-watch it too, which is great as my attention span is terrible! Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey aren't too bad to look at either!
The Sweetest thing
"You're too big to fit in here"
I find this one is even good for guys to watch, it's got that sort of male humour in there, lots of sexual references and rude jokes. It mainly focusses on Cameron Diaz (another reason guys might like this one!) and her love life, with the other girls in there for added comedy effect. The song about being too 'big to fit in here' is great and Selma Blair getting in a bit of a pickle when performing a sex act on a man with a piercing is very funny. Of course with all the silliness there's a love story which all good chic flicks need.
"You can't sit with us!"
Picking a quote from this one was so hard! It is the most quotable movie! Inspired by the book 'queen bees and wannabes' it's about the groups at high school and how you can get easily led by the wrong crowd. I've lost count of the times I've watched this. It's another film we can all relate to, haven't we all been personally victimised by a Regina George at some point?
"She's a full on Monet"
A 90's classic that just doesn't get old! The wardrobe just makes you cringe yet love it at the same time. Cher's one liners are excellent and it has it all, family dramas, Fall outs with friends, boy trouble, and a young Mike from Friends, what's not to like?
"Exercise gives you endorphins, endorphins make you happy, happy people just don't shoot their husbands. They just don't."
This film makes me feel so girly! It's all the fluffy pens, shades of pink and girly outfits. She is like a walking Barbie with a total heart of gold. I love how she is judged on her looks, and comes out fighting. I watch this a lot when I'm getting ready as it puts me in a really good mood. It's such a feel good film and Elle Woods has a great wardrobe to look at too! I really recommend seeing this in the West End if you haven't already, it's really good!
This has put me in the mood to watch one of these now! Just which one?!
