Hollywood has produced many chick flicks one after the other but it takes a mix of fun, humour, dialogues worth of everyone’s attention and a little bit of magic to make it to our favourite top 5’s list.
1. Mean Girls:
Everyone has mostly seen Mean Girls, the perfect movie which blends high school and chick flick all in one for us. It includes three Plastics and the new girl which happens to be ‘Caty’ played by Lindsay Lohan.
‘Mean girls’ never seems to get old. You can watch it again and again without getting bored and it interests you the same each and every time.
At first the teen chick flick seems like little more than the comedy that would easily be forgotten but as the story proceeds there’s “more than what meets the eye”. Female friendship and empowerment is central to Clueless.
Writer and director ‘Amy Heckerling’ based the plot of Clueless on Jane Austen’s 1815 classic she drew most on the fun tradition of twentieth-century teen cinema. It had a goofy sense to it and the characters put their best foot forward with their conversations featuring famous designers such as Calvin Klein.
There is nothing wrong with teen movies that take their subjects seriously but these films are one of the reasons why movies such as Clueless stand out with simply having a bubbly and carefree way that is what young viewers are looking for.
3. Legally Blonde:
Serving a perfect mix of humour and high aims this is what the younger generations need.
‘Elle Woods’ played by Reese Witherspoon is a pretty, rich, fashionista, popular student and president of her Delta Nu sorority, her dreams are crushed when her boyfriend dumps her to go to Harvard. Not giving up she aims high and struggles to get into Harvard which she actually does.
This movie is what dreams are made of and all the girls should learn that giving up is what failures do, standing up and achieving aims no matter how high can be gained.
4. 10 Things I Hate About You:
Set in a modern day high school the twisted love story is too irresistible to not be put in our top 5’s.
The movie’s spirit is jolly and the music compliments the whole spirit. Subtle while still cheerful the actors engage us so well into the movie with their spontaneous attitude.
The cast includes Julia Stiles who plays as Katarina “Kat” Stratford, the antisocial elder Stratford sister while Heath Ledger is Patrick Verona the “bad boy” who is hired to date Kat and falls for her in the process, revolving around this teenage dilemma is what it’s about.
5. Confessions Of A Shopaholic:
A girl ‘Rebecca Bloomwood’ is a shopping addict who lives with her best friend Suze. She aims high and fortunately after various struggles gains all that she aimed for.
This movie is about a woman searching for happiness in places such as Prada and Gucci but the happiness doesn’t end there, it only begins from there.
As can be seen from the title this movie is based on fashion, undying craze of shopaholics and last but definitely not the least achieving all that you aspire to do, hence giving teens a major life lesson on dreams, not giving up, struggles, and happiness. Although the idea is inspired from a book series of the same name, the movie is a single installment that generally cobines the central idea of the multi-volume book by Sophie Kinsella.
