16 Chick Flicks Every Single Girl Should Watch on Valentine’s Day

Who needs boys? Grab some girlfriends, popcorn, chocolate and comfy pajamas and spend your Valentine’s Day enjoying both classic and new rom-coms. Our fave actresses Tina Fey, Kate Hudson, Reese Witherspoon and Emma Stone provide better company than any significant other. So if you find yourself without a date on V-Day, spend a night in watching these 16 comforting chick flicks. 

1. Sisters

Sisters before misters any day of the week. 

2. Cadet Kelly

#TBT to our idol, Hilary Duff. 

3. 27 Dresses

At least I haven’t gone to 27 weddings.

4. Easy A 

I mean, if you don’t have an SO, just make one up. 

5. How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days

The dramatic irony of this movie, though.

6. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

We feel ya, Lena.

7. John Tucker Must Die


8. The Other Woman

I love me a good revenge film. Especially when Nicki Minaj offers classic life advice.  

9. Sleepless in Seattle

The climax of this classic rom-com even takes place on V-Day!

10. Bend it Like Beckham

Yeah, I wouldn’t believe it if it happened to me either.

11. How to Be Single

A step-by-step guide. 

12. Legally Blonde

She lost a man but gained a law degree. It’s clear she won.  

13. Eat Pray Love

No SO? No counting calories. 

14. Mamma Mia!

A girl power movie with Meryl and music. You can’t go wrong.  

15. Trainwreck

The title really just describes my whole life.

16. Valentine’s Day

Would any list be complete without it?
