1 Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants
This one was super underrated when it came out, but it’s a great warm comedy that is about a pair of jeans that travel the world and somehow manage to perfectly fit three friends with totally different body types. Trust me, it sounds weird but it will make you cry!
2 Fifty Shades of Grey
This one is worth ticking off the bucket list, even if just for curiosity’s sake! If nothing else, watching Fifty Shades will be able to make you part of the wider conversation!
3 The Notebook
If you haven’t already seen this, what the hell have you been doing! It’s the timeless romance that sealed Ryan Gosling in our hearts forever.
An iconic 90s teen classic, every single line of this high school romp is quotable. Did you know it’s actually based on Jane Austen’s Emma?
5 Terms of Endearment
If you want to spend a Sunday evening crying into a tub of ice cream on the couch, then Terms Of Endearment is definitely the movie to get you in the zone!
6 My Best Friend’s Wedding
Julia Roberts at her chick flick best here in a movie all about the situation of falling for your best friend and having to watch them plan a wedding with someone else!
7 Steel Magnolias
Dolly Parton, Sally Field, Julia Roberts, Shirley MacLaine ... Need I say anymore? This friends and family comedy drama will have you laughing and bawling in equal measure!
8 Legends of the Fall
This one is essentially a film made entirely to showcase the beauty of Brad Pitt’s free flowing blond hair, and I can’t say that I’m mad about it at all!
9 Sleepless in Seattle
Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks are a classic chick flick pairing, and this rom com about long distance love is definitely one of their best.
10 Love Actually
Although it's heavily leaning towards Christmas, there's so much feel-good going on in this movie, it's thoroughly watchable any time of year.
11 You’ve Got Mail
Meg and Tom are at it again! Watch You’ve Got Mail for all your retro technology and quirky romance needs.
12 Notting Hill
One of the most iconic movies of both Julia Roberts’ and Hugh Grant’s careers, and another rom com with a thousand quotable lines and memorable scenes!
13 Thelma and Louise
This is one to sit down and watch with your best ride or die BFF. It’s girl power to the max and there won’t be a dry eye in the house come the end!
14 French Kiss
Oh hey, look, it’s another Meg Ryan movie! This time around, though, Kevin Kline has the pleasure of being her co star in this Parisian adventure.
15 Never Been Kissed
Drew Barrymore is another staple of the chick flick genre, and I just so happen to believe that Never Been Kissed is one of her cutest and best movies.
16 Legally Blonde
Come on, who wouldn’t want to be Elle Woods for a week! Legally Blonde is the definition of fluffy fun, and it still hasn’t aged!
17 Bridget Jones’s Diary
The older you get, the more real this movie starts to feel, but that doesn’t stop it from being a stone cold banger!
18 The English Patient
If you are looking for a sweeping period romance with enough emotion and drama to sink a ship, then look no further!
19 Out of Africa
You shouldn’t need any more reason to watch this one other than the fact that it is arguably one of Meryl Streep’s greatest performances!
20 Pretty Woman
I had to end with this one! Pretty Woman is the kind of movie that defined a generation, and secured a place in all of our hearts for Julia Roberts forever!
