This is pretty much just a list of the most classic chick flicks going, the ones that any girl growing up in the early 2000’s will have seen. (I’m pretty sure we could all quote at least one of these films almost word for word)
They’re the films that can’t be beaten my any new day releases.
These girly cringey chick flicks seem to be a dying art, so we need to appreciate the ones we’ve got, here’s a low-down of my favourites:
Angus Thongs And Perfect Snogging
The first thing that always pops into my head when I think of this film Is Georgia Nicholson wearing an Olive costume running down the street filled with embarrassment, Of course, the song She’s So Lovely has to be playing in the background.
It felt like you were going on a journey with Georgia because as a young teen you also wanted kissing tips, a boyfriend, a super cool birthday party and a lovely friend group who care about you.
You’d be lying if you said you didn’t try the kissing on the back of your hand to improve your technique!
This was one of the classics that was played at every single sleepover, you’d be sat there with your chocolate raisins and a little bowl of popcorn counting down the hours to midnight. The topic of ‘I wonder if boarding school is actually like that?’ would come up and the conversation would end with ‘I wish I was as kick-ass as Poppy Moore so people would be that fond of me’. Of course, I wouldn’t have used the word kick-ass back then but y’know what I mean.
I was always rather envious of how Emma Roberts hair looked when after she dyed it dark brown, in fact, it was one of the reasons I first dyed my hair dark. (What a mistake that was)
‘On Wednesday We Wear Pink’, ‘You Go Glen Coco’ are the quotes that still after a little while of not seeing the film stick in my head.
I remember this being one of the favourite films when I was in year 9 and me and one of my best friends then would quote it all the time. good memories.
Bring It On
Back in the day when Love Film was around, I remember ordering the first ‘Bring It On’ in the sequel and getting hooked; from then on every couple of days I’d be sending a film back to get the next one in the series.
Hannah Montana Movie
I can’t believe it’s been 12 years since the first Hannah Montana episode this year!
I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for her, she was the rock star I wanted to see more than anyone else whilst I was growing up. In fact, if Miley did another tour as Hannah now I wouldn’t even hesitate at the thought of buying tickets.
The movie was a sad but beautiful ending for the journey we’d followed Hannah on, my favourite part still has to be the shoe fight between her and Tyra Banks.
Lizzie Mcguire Movie
Lizzie’s another gal I grew up with. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen every single episode of the show too, I feel for the kids who’re missing out on her nowadays.
It was the movie that made school trips abroad seem so much more exciting. Imagine just going off on a casual walk around the town centre to get mistaken for a pop star to then end up performing in her place. y’know just the usual school trip antics.
13 Going On 30
I used to absoueltly adore this film, mostly because I admired Jenna Rink’s life; I mean she was 14 and doing photo shoots, how can a gal not be at least a little jealous of that?
What films did you watch when you were growing up?
