The 13 Best Chick Flicks to Watch on Valentine’s Day

Galentine’s Day just got a whole lot better! Instead of worrying about being alone this year, only concern yourself with what movies you’ll be watching. Make a date with your couch for one (or all) of these feel-good chick flicks this Valentine’s Day. 

1. Breakfast at Tiffany’s

When all else fails, we can always turn to this classic Audrey Hepburn film that makes us want to be a glamorous New York City socialite.

Quoteworthy line: “People do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that’s the only chance anybody’s got for real happiness.”

2. Clueless

Clueless isn’t just a ’90s chick flick; it’s the ’90s chick flick. Fabulous outfits? Check. Witty dialogue? Check. Adorable, young Paul Rudd? Check.

Quoteworthy line: “Searching for a boy in high school is as useless as searching for meaning in a Pauly Shore movie.”

3. What a Girl Wants 

Amanda Bynes longs for a relationship with her long lost father and when she discovers that he’s a British royal, she embarks on journey to find him. This movie shows us that our princess fantasies really can come true. 

4. 13 Going on 30 

It’s hard to not want to get up and dance along with Jennifer Garner to “Thriller,” and the ’80s flashbacks are priceless.

Quoteworthy line: “Love is a battlefield.”

5. Mean Girls

No chick flick list would be complete without Mean Girls, our generation’s favorite movie to quote. How many times have we watched pre-rehab LiLo take on the Plastics? THE LIMIT DOES NOT EXIST.

Quoteworthy line: “Calling somebody else fat won’t make you any skinnier. Calling someone stupid doesn’t make you any smarter.”

6. Aquamarine

Two best friends make a magical new friend in Sara Paxton, their very own mermaid. The power of friendship handles almost every problem in this feel good movie. Also, if you look close enough, you’ll might recognize some real familiar and famous faces.

Quoteworthy line: ” Aquamarine, that’s kind of pretty… for a crayon.”

7. She’s the Man

Amanda Bynes kills it as a dude in this hilarious movie, which features a hot, soccer-playing Channing Tatum. Yes, please!

Quoteworthy line: “Heels are a male invention designed to make a woman’s butt look smaller. And to make it harder for them to run away.”

8. John Tucker Must Die

You have to love a movie about three scheming girls getting sweet revenge on the guy who cheated on all of them. And props to Penn Badgley for somehow still looking good while rocking that hairdo!

Quoteworthy line: “I wish it could be simple, like a retro pop song: ‘I want you to want me.’ Boom, end of story – we all live happily ever after.”

9. Easy A

As the ever-sassy and hilarious Olive Penderghast, Emma Stone reminds us why we love her so much. It’s The Scarlet Letter for the 21st century (but, unlike in your English class, you’ll actually pay attention this time around!).

Quoteworthy line: “I want John Cusack holding a boom box outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an ’80s movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason.”

10. Bridesmaids 

With Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and Ellie Kemper, this movie is guaranteed to have you cracking up from beginning to end.

Quoteworthy line: “Help me, I’m poor.”

11. Pitch Perfect

Everything about the movie is an ultimate mood-booster, and it’s the perfect blend of funny and heartwarming.

Quoteworhy line: “Even though some of you are pretty thin, I think that you all have fat hearts.”

12. To All The Boys: Always and Forever 

This film has all of the ingredients of a modern-day fairy tale. A girl crushes on a boy and the boy actually likes her back?? Seems too good to be true but this romantic movie will soften your heart as you get to know Lara Jean and Peter’s love story, and the final installment drops on Netflix on February 12!

Quoteworthy line: “What must it be like, to have a boy like you so much he cries for you?”

13. Someone Great

Sometimes, breaking up and staying broken up is the best thing to… with the help of your girls of course. Gina Rodriguez’s character, Jenny, discovers that when one door opens another one just might close, and that’s perfectly okay. Being a strong, independent woman has everything to with you and no one else. 

Quoteworthy line: “I leave in a week and then I turn 30 and then I die probably. I need one last epic day with my girls.”
