You’ll be sleeping with the lights on after watching these horror flicks.
This could be Disney’s boldest move yet.
Just don’t feel sorry for him while you’re watching it.
Just when we thought we couldn’t love Bridget Jones any more…
Whether you will spend Valentine’s Day with your partner, your best friend, or alone, it’s a great day to have a night in and watch a chick flick. There are so many romantic movies out there, but only a few have become classics over time.
It might be because of the storyline, the great actors, or the tear-jerking scenes that make you sob like a little baby, but each of the following 5 films is great in its own way and makes for a perfect Valentine’s Day movie:
1. Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare’s classic, which served as inspiration for pretty much every love story that followed. There are countless films based on the drama, but who doesn’t enjoy Baz Luhrmann’s version starring a very young (and cute) Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes.
2. Ghost. Yes, this movie is sad. But it also makes us believe in the power of love beyond death. And it reminds us of what Demi Moore used to look like.
3. 500 Days of Summer. Not your typical love story and definitely more suited for the realists out there. If you want a story about love rather than a love story, watch Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt fall in and out of love in this one (and enjoy the amazing soundtrack).
4. Breakfast at Tiffany’s. For a bit of nostalgia, Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly never disappoints. This movie is both comedic and sad and includes one of the best kissing-in-the-rain scenes of all time.
5. The Notebook. Two words: Ryan Gosling. This movie, though only ten years old, has quickly become a classic and is the definition of the term ‘chick flick’. A must-see for Valentine’s Day.

Unbelievably, it has been 10 years since the release of the cult movie Mean Girls. This film was to the early-2000s what Clueless was to the ’90s. It was a mega hit and “so fetch” at the time and its success took most people by surprise, including Tina Fey. Her adaptation of the book Queen Bees and Wannabes was dark in its humour but was relatable to so many women, and particularly girls aged between 13 and 20.
Besides highlighting the high school experience in such a funny way, the movie is one of the most quotable films ever. Here is my top ten:
- “He’s too gay to function.”
- “That’s why her hair is so big. It’s full of secrets.”
- “Irregardless! Ex-boyfriends are just off limits to friends. I mean, that’s just like, the rules of feminism!”
- “I don’t hate you ‘cause your fat. You’re fat ‘cause I hate you!”
- “You smell like a baby prostitute.”
- “I’m sorry I called you a gap-toothed bitch. It’s not your fault you’re so gap-toothed.”
- “If you’re from Africa, why are you white?”
- “On Wednesdays, we wear pink.”
- “One time, she punched me in the face. It was awesome.”
- “It’s like I have ESPN or something. My breasts can always tell when it’s going to rain. Well… they can tell when it’s raining.”
Did you know? Lindsay Lohan originally auditioned to play Regina and Rachel McAdams wanted to be Cady. Wow, wouldn’t that have made for a very different movie?!
