TOP 5 FEMALE FRIENDSHIP FLICKS TO WATCH WITH YOUR GIRLFRIENDS

Choose a night. Invite your girlfriends over. Grab some popcorn, ice-cream and other yummy goodies. A settle in for a night of laughter, tears and girlfriend-hood as you watch these movies, which at their cores, are about relationships between friends, sisters, mothers, etc.

BEACHES (1988)

No matter how many time I watch this classic friendship movie, I always find myself crying through Bette Midler singing “The Glory of Love.” Definitely a bonding movie with the women that closest and dearest to you.

CLUELESS (1995) Yes, this more of a coming-of-age film as Cher discovers that she has more depth to her than even she gave herself credit for. Bur she did it with the help of her two bestest friends Dionne and Tai.FUN CLIP: GOLDEN GIRLS RENDITION OF CLUELESS

 

LITTLE WOMEN (1994)

 There are so many things to love about this movie (watching the young, fabulous Christian Bale is number one), but the depiction of the relationship among the women is lovely to watch. My favorite quote:

 Younger Amy March: Do you love Laurie more than you love me?
Jo: Don’t be silly! I could never love anyone more than I love my sisters.

Now, that’s what I’m talking about. 

MEAN GIRLS (2004)

Okay, so maybe this is the best example of female friendships. But it is funny and it shows you what not to do to your best friends. In the end, I like to think that each character learned a valuable lesson about friendship, so this movie totally counts.

 Let us all work together to create a better “Girl World.”

STEEL MAGNOLIAS (1989)

Yes, I know. Another tearjerker. But the movie is so satisfying to watch that the tears. No matter that I’ve seen it hundreds of times, I will sit down and watch it whenever I stumble across it on television.
