Sometimes a girls night in is just what the doctor ordered, but no proper girls night is complete without the perfect selection of movies to binge watch with your mates. Here is a list of ten fantastic movies, girls night in approved!
1. Mamma Mia!
Has there ever been a more feel-good movie? This is one of those movies that you’ll never stop loving, it’s perfect for a girls night and will have you singing at the top of your lungs along to all the ABBA hits.
This high school comedy is an absolute classic and will have you in bits at the hilarious antics of the two misfit main characters played by Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, as they try to impress girls and finally be ‘cool’ enough, by bringing booze to a party. High school movies, girls night in, popcorn = perfect night.
I had to include some scary movies on this list for the horror lovers out there. The 2018 film Hereditary is a brilliant modern horror centering around a small suburban family unraveling their disturbing ancestry. It’s a chilling watch and will have you and the girls on the edge of your seats, a perfect.
4. Mean Girls
Mean Girls is one of those movies, girls night in wouldn’t be the same without it. If you’re looking for an easy go-to that will check all the boxes for a perfect girls night this is the one. For the very few that haven’t seen it, this movie centres around Cady, a girl who’s lived in Africa her whole life, moving to America and getting involved with a group of ‘mean girls’.
5. Baywatch (2018)
Cheesy as it is, this movie is ridiculously entertaining, especially when you’re watching it with your pals. Its storyline focuses on a group of lifeguards in Florida trying to save the beach and its visitors from a ruthless drug lord. It’s lots of laughs and a fun watch for a girls night in.
6. It (2017)
Another horror for the list, this one is slightly more easy-going than Hereditary but will still really creep you out. This movie follows a group of middle school kids trying to solve the mystery of the shape-shifting clown Pennywise who preys on young children every 27 years.
7. 10 Things I Hate About You
The strong female leads in this movie and the funny and witty plot makes this movie perfect for a girls night in. It’s easy going but you’ll still get invested in the characters, as you watch bad boy Patrick Verona fall in love with the abrasive and opinionated Cat.
This movie is tonnes of fun and surprisingly heart-warming. It follows the lives of rich Beverly Hills high school girl Cher and her best friends Dionne and Tai as they navigate high school and falling in love. It’s sweet and funny and features some great fashion moments, including Cher’s iconic yellow plaid suit.
9. Crazy Stupid Love
Steve Carrel plays the recently divorced Cal, who has hit rock-bottom, that is until womanizer Jacob played by Ryan Gosling, comes into his life and gives him a full-on glow up. The movie also follows other storylines of Cal’s children and even their babysitter. It’s a funny and easy watch perfect for a good laugh with the girls.
10. Legally Blonde
Possibly the most quotable movie of all time! Who can forget the iconic Elle Woods and her mission to become a lawyer as she proves she’s more than just a “dumb blonde”. This movie surprises everyone the first time they watch it in how it denies the stereotypes of beauty equalling stupidity. It’s one of the best ‘girl power’ movies, girls night in will make you feel like you can achieve anything!
