My Top 10 Chick Flicks

I was intrigued and inspired by Lindsay's Top 10 Chick Flick movie list for Valentines Day over at La Belle Vie, so much so that I created my own list of chick-flick faves. Now of course, this is only a tiny fragment of the chick flicks I have seen, rented, or actually viewed in the theater. But these are the most memorable (in my humble opinion).
10. Serendipity - it's all up to fate in this movie. The will they/won't they find each other story line gets me every time (even though I obviously already know the ending...)9. Center Stage, I was never a ballerina, but this movie made my friends and I wish we were!
8. Bridget Jones Diary7. My Big Fat Greek Wedding
6. The Thomas Crown Affair
5. One Fine Day - I loved this duo (Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney)4. The Notebook - great book and a great movie3. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days2. The Cutting Edge, I LOVE this movie. Love, love, love! Also makes me wish I'd pursued a career as a professional ice skater (a little)...
1. Dirty Dancing "No one puts Baby in a corner!"

What are your fave chick flicks? Did I name any of them?

Love Actually! I can watch this movie over and over.

Kate said...

Definitely How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and also Pride and Prejudice (with Keira Knightly) and You've Got Mail. Love Chick flicks!

I'm Lindsay! said...

Ohh how exciting! I actually haven't seen a lot of these, so I'll have to check them out!

Paige said...

we have the same taste in movies!!! Center Stage and Cutting Edge? Are you kidding me - CLASSICS!!!

I would also have to add Shag, Pretty Woman, Clueless and Mean Girls.

Erin said...

I'd forgotten about The Cutting Edge. I luuuuurved that movie!

Dirty Dancing and The Notebook are definitely in my top 10. And of course Bridget Jones' Diary. Anything with Colin Firth in it makes me swoon a little bit.

My own personal faves also include:
You've Got Mail (I could watch it a million times over)
Love Actually
Pride and Prejudice (again, with Colin Firth)
Anne of Green Gables
Sleepless in Seattle (YOU must like that one!)
The Time Traveller's Wife

Hmmm... Now you've got me thinking... I'm off to look through my dvd collection! AND to plan a girls' night in which we'll lounge on the couch, drink wine, eat snacks and watch our favourite girly movies! I can't wait.

I saw Dirty Dancing again at Christmas for the first time in 20 years and still loved it.
I'm with Barbara for adding Love Actually and also love most films with Drew Barrymore, Meg Ryan or Sandra Bullock in (esp. The Wedding Singer, First Dates, While you were sleeping, The Proposal, City of Angels..) Actually it's harder than it looks to stop at 10!

Leslie said...

Awesome list! You really covered the spectrum of chick flicks! I love Bridget Jones Diary...Pride and Prejudice is also a good one.

Toe pick!!! I always think of that movie during the winter Olympics! SO good!

Jackie said...

OMG Center Stage! I used to love that movie-I even bought the soundtrack. Tee-hee. I love Serendipity too.

Sweet Home Alabama has always been a fave chick flick of mine.

Lara said...

such a fabulous list! couldn't agree more with center stage and cutting edge :) i haven't seen thomas crowne or (gasp!) the notebook.

Carissa said...

oh my goodness, I LOVE this list! I think my list would look pretty much identical!

I don't remember ever seeing The Thomas Crown Affair or One Fine Day but every other film you mentioned I have seen and love.

If I were to add anything, I would add Walk the Line and The Wedding Planner! I love those!

Carissa said...

oh, and I totally agree with the other commenters who said You've Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle. how could I forget those classics?! :)

Joanna Goddard said...

i love this list! :) i once went on a date with a guy and he said his favorite movie of all time was The Cutting Edge. that was a little weird :)

Melanie's Randomness said...

Great list!! I somehow still have not seen The Notebook. I really have to do that!!

I love Bridgest Jone's Diary. It's by far my favorite movie! Dirty Dancing does definitely deserve to be #1!

Stevie said...

Dirty Dancing, most definitely. Also, Sense and Sensibility - although that's more just a classic love story and a gorgeous film than a cheesy chick flick...and I have always loved the movie Return to Me with Minnie Driver and David Duchovny.
And The Sound of Music

I know there are plenty more but I can't think of them right now!

Tuesdai Noelle said...

I've only seen one of these movies;"How to Loose a man..."...as for the others? Only heard of them, never even though to watch.

Oh man! Thanks for this, I've been lacking in inspiration for getting movies on Netflix lately!
Your list is great! I adore Center Stage, oh man, it brings out the utmost girl in me. I would add Love Actually and Pride & Prejudice, as everyone else here has said. Oh! And Memoirs of a Geisha, and 16 Candles :)

Grace said...

You should check out "I Am That Girl."
It's coming soon to DVD- it's the best indie "chick flick" that guys like of 2009! watch the trailer at http://www.iamthatgirlmovie.com

Leesh said...

Center Stage is one of my favorites. Some of my other favorites are Sweet Home Alabama, The Devil Wears Prada, My Best Friend's Wedding and Love Actually.

Elizabeth said...

The Family Stone...can't watch it enough. Also love the Thomas Crown Affair. Peirce Brosnan will you marry me?

Renée T. Bouchard said...

OMG, I can't believe Love Actually isn't on your list! And Amelie?!?!?! But your list is full of great choices, so I understand.

Lots of great ideas I hadn't thought of...as for Love Actually, yes I LOVE this movie, but I consider it to be more of a Christmas/holiday movie than a chick flick - hence the leaving it off the top 10.

Debbie said...

Some of my faves:

The Holiday (Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet)
Devil Wears Prada
You've Got Mail
One Fine Day
The Mirror Has Two Faces (Barbra Streisand)
Under the Tuscan Sun (Diane Lane)
Something's Gotta Give (LOVE THE HOUSE)
Mama Mia (pure fun)

tam pham said...

Anna said...

I LOVE Serendipity. I'm going home and watching it today :)

MAHOLLA! said...

Ummmmm - i love ALL those movies!!!

huin said...

Truly! This list is extremely fantastic and I am totally agree with the selection of these best chick flicks. I would like to tell you here that most of the movies in this list had been performed by my favorite actors. So every time I love to watch them in movies.
