- "Sex and the City" This movie was based off the popular HBO comedy series by the same name.

- "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" With hot actresses Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson this might be one of the sexiest chick flicks ever. Enjoy and just ignore the girly plot of a summer vacation love triangle.
- "The Women" The all female cast of this movie just screams chick flick. The screenplay is based off of a 1936 play. One of the main characters, Alex Fisher, is openly a lesbian so that’s something.
- "Australia" This is another one of those movies that fits into the chick flick genre but has wide appeal. It stars Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman so the acting in this movie was great. It also is the second highest grossing Australian film of all time.
- "Mamma Mia!" This is a film adaptation of the popular musical by the same name. So yes there is singing in it, lots of it. But there is also a fairly good plot line and some memorable performances.
- "Revolutionary Road" This movie is based off the 1961 Richard Yates novel of the same name. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. Try not to shudder as you have a flash back to "Titanic." This is another period type piece for the duo (Their first movie together since Winslet left DiCaprio to die in the ocean) and it’s actually a decent movie.
- "The Duchess" The film is based on Amanda Foreman’s biography of Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire. There was a lot of buzz with this movie since it brought together actress Keira Knightley with director Saul Dibb. It sadly fell short of the hype but at least you can look at Knightley.
- "27 Dresses" This is a very classic chick flick movie, complete with a rather predictable plot. This is the kind of chick flick that even women know is a bad movie but they still love them. Try not to snore if you fall asleep.
