The newer version or the older version; both will leave you smiling with nostalgia. Who can forget Lindsay Lohan?

The ultimate ugly duckling. Who wouldn’t want to be a real princess? Anne Hathaway is the best. Definitely a classic throwback as well.
85. The Proposal
Witty and adorable. One of Ryan Reynold’s earlier chick flicks! I’ll watch anything with him in it.
86. The Sweetest Thing
One wo watch with your besties. If you like Cameron Diaz, add this to your list.

You thought your relationship was complicated? Try staying in one when you’re always traveling through time! Rachel McAdams, Eric Bana and lots of drama- love it.
88. The Vow
Rachel McAdams does it again. Definitely up there with The Notebook for me.
89. The Wedding Date
If Dermot Mulroney didn’t prove he was made for chick flicks in My Best Friend’s Wedding, he does in this movie.
90. The Wedding Planner
Wedding planning is always stressful, but it makes for great movie. J. Lo and Mathew McConaughey make for one attractive pair.
