February is just around the corner, and you know what that means, Valentine’s Day. As this month of love can sometimes be suffocating, maybe even dreadful, there seems to be no way to avoid the ooey gooey ness of this month. So, stop trying to fight it, and give into this cliché month. No boyfriend/girlfriend in the picture? No problem. Pull out the Ben and Jerry’s, grab blanket, and binge watch some perfectly cheesy chick flicks.
10 Things I Hate About You
This is easily one of the greatest teen rom coms (romantic comedies) you’ll ever see. Ladies, if you aren’t a Heath Ledger fan already this movie will make you one. You can’t help but laugh at the witty banters and bizarre events that take action between the two main characters. Warning, this is a real tear jerker at the end, so make sure to have a tissue or two on hand.
Nicholas Sparks never fails to hit us right in the feels with his too-good-to-be-true love stories. He beat all standards of a good chick flick with The Notebook. This movie will have you craving summer even more as you watch Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams’s summer fling. With all kinds of twists and turns in their sometimes rocky relationship, this movie will for sure be tugging on those heart strings.
My Channing Tatum fans will love The Vow. Channing Tatum’s character gets in a car accident with his wife, Rachel McAdams. While he walks away with barely a scratch, she ends up in the hospital with no remembrance of him, or their marriage. Still madly in love with his wife, Tatum will try anything to her make her fall in love with him again. This one will take a whole box of tissues.
What’s better than a mixture of summer flings and Channing Tatum? Nothing, nothing is better than that. Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried’s characters have the most heart-warming relationship we’ve ever seen. Naturally, when these characters leave at the end of summer you’re left internally screaming, but we are left with a thread of hope as they start writing letters to each other to stay in touch. This movie ends in a huge plot twist, leaving you questioning everything.
The Fault in Our Stars
While most of us have seen this teen love story multiple times, this is still the perfect chick flick to watch with your tub of ice cream. Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley keep you captivated as they play the roles of two sick teenagers going through treatments and doctor visits, all while falling in love with each other. Both characters have charming, hilarious personalities and it’s impossible not to fall in love them. Be prepared for the uncontrollable tears that will hit you during this movie, because they will hit, and they will be uncontrollable.
