1 Emma Rae King (Kyra Sedgwick) from Something to Talk about

itunes.apple.com
If you need a good dose of sarcasm, you should begin your journey through the female movie characters by watching, “Something to Talk About.” At the exact moment that you discover Grace's husband, Eddie has been cheating, Emma Rae steps in and saves the day. There's nothing like a sister with a smart mouth who knows the exact moment to dispense her own brand of saracasm. I can't decide which scene I love more; the where her knee connects with his groin or when she asks him, “Are you addressing me?” Trust me, Emma Rae is awesome!

2 Suzanne Vale (Meryl Streep) from Postcards from the Edge

itunes.apple.com
Ironically, another film in which Dennis Quaid is a lying, cheating, jerk, Postcards from the Edge chronicles a fictitious interpretation of Carrie Fisher's life. As Suzanne Vale, Meryl Streep is the ultimate sarcastic hero as she challenged everyone including her mother, whose dress “twirled up” at her 13th birthday party.

3 Andi Anderson (Kate Hudson) from How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

itunes.apple.com
If you have wondered what it is that you are doing wrong when dating, you should start here. As Andi Anderson begins her journey into examining how to lose a guy in 10 days, we are reminded of the many things that we should all avoid. During this journey she is unaware that Benjamin Berry has also placed a bet, which is a brilliant contradiction to her own.

4 Ruby (Wanda Sykes) from Monster-in-Law

itunes.apple.com
If your mother-in-law makes you crazy, and trust me, most of them do, you will love Ruby. She is the assistant of Viola Fields. Viola is a mother who just cannot bring herself to cut the cord and let her adult son live his own life. Ruby, however, is there at every turn to call her out on her bull. Trust me, if you're married, and your mother-in-law gives you fits, this is the perfect character to inspire you in how to survive.

5 Alexis (Kate Hudson) My Best Friend's Girl

itunes.apple.com
Alexis is Dusty's angel. He loves her so much that he hires Tank Turner to terrorize her into coming back to him. Does this work? No, Alexis who is smart, tough, and fluent in saracasm presents Tank with more than he bargained for. If you want to see a woman show a man just how unarmed he truly is for a battle of wits—here you go! Enjoy!

6 Charlie Baltimore (Geena Davis) from the Long Kiss Goodnight

itunes.apple.com
Frumpy school teacher, Samantha Caine cooks for dinner parties, bakes cookies for her students, and kills people. Well, she kills people after she realizes who she is. All it takes is the influence of Samuel L. Jackson and Geena Davis goes from P.C. teacher to the ultimate killing machine that curses like a sailor and has a come-back for everything.

7 June Carter (Reese Witherspoon) from Walk the Line

itunes.apple.com
If you are unaware of June Carter Cash, now is the time to learn, ladies! Yes, she was a Christian, mother, and singer. But you must realize she is the woman who tamed Johnny Cash. With a series of tell-it-like-it-is comebacks, you will love the movie character almost as much as Johnny loved the real June.

8 Erin Brockovich (Julia Roberts) from Erin Brockovich

itunes.apple.com
Erin Brockovich wears many hats. In this movie portrayal by Julia Roberts, we get a glimpse of the real woman and the struggle that made her legendary. With motivation and gumption, Brockovich fought the powers that be to prove that a local water company was responsible for the deaths and sickness of a California town. While she is not your traditional hero, she proves to be spunky and refuses to take it from anyone.

9 Kate (Catherine Zeta Jones) from No Reservations

itunes.apple.com
Master chef, Kate runs a Manhattan restaurant like she owns it without drama, nonsense, or incompetience. This is until Nick enters the scene. With this challenge, she becomes evern more spunky as she stakes her claims and marks her territory. You will love the scene where the customer complains about the preparation of his steak most of all. Trust me!

10 Gracie Hart (Sandra Bullock) from Miss Congeniality

itunes.apple.com
FBI Agent Gracie Hart is placed way out of her comfort zone. She is forced to go undercover as a beauty pageant contestant, which requires some serious adjustments. These adjustments include brushing her hair, wearing make-up, and the challenge of how to hide her gun under her ball gown. As an agent she is used to taking down criminals. However, she isn't used to doing her job while being oogled by millions of viewers worldwide.

11 Heather Mooney (Janeane Garofalo) from Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion

itunes.apple.com
I have always loved Janeane Garofalo. Trust me, if you want to watch movies with spunky female characters, you must learn more about Heather Mooney. She is sarcastic, moody, and fiesty. You will absolutely adore her.

Whether you are having a rough night or just want to become more fluent in sarcasm, this collection of characters will empower this journey. From one-liners to immediate comebacks, they have them all. What are some of your favorite female characters that are spunky?
