We narrow down some fan favorites. How many of these famous films have you soon? Which ones are your favorite?
As If! This famous 90’s film that follows Cher and her group of dramatic and rich friends stands the test of time. To this day, girls still go out dressed as Cher and Dionne for Halloween. Plus, it gave us Paul Rudd for the first time. What could be better than that?
Pitch Perfect (2012)
Whether you grew up singing in an acapella group or not, Pitch Perfect made us all laugh. It follows the ups and downs of a traveling, singing, college acapella group, and all the drama that ensues. Not only is it hilarious, but it’s got some great tunes.
10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
It’s impossible to forget how much Heath Ledger made our hearts swoon in this sappy teen comedy. From two sisters with completely different views on dating to their utterly hilarious father, it’s both heartwarming and irritating.
Legally Blonde (2001)
Elle Woods remains one of our all-time favorite female heroes. Any time you watch her take down the Harvard snobs and prove herself, again and again, it gives us a little boost of confidence. We all need a little Elle Woods courage in our daily lives.
Bring It On (2000)
We never knew we would love cheerleader’s so much. Bring it On brought us some iconic quotes (spirit fingers, anyone?) and some bomb dance routines. There’s not a woman from the ’90s that doesn’t know the famous cheer, and that’s saying something.
Mean Girls (2004)
Lindsay Lohan at her finest and Rachel McAdams before The Notebook. This hilarious comedy compared teen-life to the chaos of the jungle, and somehow, it worked. We will never forget the Burn Book or any number of the most quotable phrases we’ve been repeating since our very first watch.
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005)
Before Serena Vanderwoodsen, Blake Lively made a memorable appearance as one of four friends in this heartwarming film. Based on the book by the same name, it made an impact on teenage girls going through all the same experiences. Even now, we look back and remember how vital those female bonds of friendship were.
Easy A (2010)
The comedy that put Emma Stone on all the magazine covers, Easy A, made us laugh, cry, and even sing. In the vein of Mean Girls fame, it took the many different facets of High School and made them seem less intense and a whole lot more hilarious.
The Princess Diaries (2001)
What young woman didn’t dream that she would someday find out she was a princess? That’s why Mia became such an iconic figure for us. Watching her blossom into a (still geeky) princess was the transformation we all hoped for.
When it comes to iconic rom-coms, these are at the top of the list. Which ones top your list?
