Identity Thief

We just about died of laughter when we caught this one in theaters. You and your girlfriends will do the same if you pick this gem for your girls’ night in. Jason Bateman stars as an everyman who finds himself in a world of trouble when an identity thief – played here by the hilarious Melissa McCarthy – steals his info and goes on a shopping spree.

Best Paired With: A raucous comedy demands nothing more than junk food and beer. Pick up a twelve pack of brew and your favourite salty snacks and sweets.

Side Effects

This dark thriller had us on the edge of our seats. Starring Rooney Mara and Catherine Zeta-Jones, Side Effects tells the story of a woman who commits a heinous act after taking a prescription antidepressant. However, not everything is what it seems. If you’re not sold yet, this might seal the deal: it also stars Jude Law and Channing Tatum. Sorry, but there isn’t a good shirtless dance-off scene. Maybe next time?

Best Paired With: Pick up some quality wines and cheeses. An intellectual flick like this needs a grown-up spread to match.

Oz: The Great and Powerful

This one isn’t just for kids. With a star-filled cast (Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, and the always dreamy James Franco), this Wizard of Oz origin story is as visually appealing as it is enthralling.

Best Paired With: A movie this colourful needs cocktails and fun snacks to match. Try crudités and fruity martinis if you want to serve a spread that’s as vibrant as the land of Oz.
