The Ultimate 2000s Chick Flick Movie Watchlist Continued...
Back in February, we put together our ultimate 2000s chick flick movie playlist. (If you haven’t read it yet - you can check it out here!)
So many of you loved it so much that we thought we would do an extension of that list because there are too many amazing chick flick movies out there not to share with you guys!
As mentioned in our previous blog post, the 2000s were famous for providing us with unforgettable chick flicks that we can still relate to 20 + years later.
From the fashion to the heartthrobs (does Aaron Johnson ring any bells?), some of our favourite movies still to this day were the ones made in the 2000s.
So, without further ado, join us on our trip down memory lane and check out our extensive 2000s chick flick movie watchlist! We hope you love these movies just as much as we do.
10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
From the oh so stylish 90s outfits to its young and incredible cast, 10 Things I Hate About You has got to be the most underrated teen comedy of the late 90s/00s.
A lot of people would go as far as saying that 10 Things I Hate About You is the ultimate teen movie. It captures teen drama, fear, and exploration in a perfect time capsule alongside modernising Shakespeare in such a clever way.
I wonder if Miley Cyrus gained inspiration for her hit song, 7 Things from Julia Stiles’ song in the movie?
Angus, Thongs & Perfect Snogging (2008)
‘Boy’s don't like girls for funniness’
Everything about this film is truly movie gold. It’s funny, relatable and is a story for the ages and one that we will return for years to come. From Georgia dressed as an olive to the ‘elastic band’ theory, Georgia Nicholson and the ace gang paved the way for teenage girls and engraved the minds of every impressionable female teenager out there (including us!).
Oh, and we can’t forget Robbie! *insert heart eyed emoji here*
She’s All That - (1999)
She’s All That was your typical high school prom king and queen story. Freddie Prinze Jr. played the most popular kid in high school who accepts a dare to make the school’s outcast (played by Rachael Leigh Cook) into the prom queen. This film is a classic. It’s lighthearted, an easy watch and we would highly recommend.
AND did you know that a remake of this iconic film is set for release this August? I know, we can’t believe it either! He’s All That is a gender swapped remake and stars TikTok star Addison Rae. The movie is set for release on Netflix on August 27th.
Wild Child (2008)
What’s not to love about this movie?!
This movie highlights the importance of friendship and tries to teach the lessons that no girl is an island, that you can find the good in everyone if you just look past the obvious and if you try hard enough you can make a change for the better in yourself and others.
Now, we have to admit when we first watched this movie, the message behind the story-line is not what made us LOVE the movie (that may have something to do with Alex Pettyfer starring as the love interest) but after watching the movie multiple times, the story-line has a lot of depth and is most definitely another tween movie that you just have to add to your watchlist.
Freaky Friday (2003)
Growing up we were obsessed with any movie that Lindsay Lohan starred in. From The Parent Trap, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen to Just My Luck and Mean Girls - OF COURSE!
Freaky Friday is a belly laughing kind of movie - if you know, you know.
We’d go as far as saying that this movie is by far one of the funniest live-action comedy movies Disney has ever created. With a star studded cast and hilarious scenes throughout, this film will always remain a classic in our eyes.
Oh, and we have to mention…Chad Michael Murray with long hair?!?!
17 Again (2009)
Two words. Zac Efron.
It even stars our favourite,Chandler Bing! Obviously not as Chandler but you get the drift!
We could watch this movie on repeat and never get bored. From the basketball scenes taking us back to the Troy Bolton days to watching Zac pull up in the Audi R8 in his white tee, putting his leather jacket on and rocking those aviator sunglasses. Is it a little sad that we remember this scene so well?!
Love, love LOVE this movie. 10/10 would highly recommend - if you haven’t watched it already (which you probably have).
New York Minute (2004)
Who else wanted to be Mary-Kate or Ashley growing up?
From Passport to Paris to Holiday in the Sun, we were obsessed with the Olsen twins and following them on their adventures. The Olsen twins were the Kardashians of our childhood. Ashley Olsen has crimped hair? We wanted crimped hair. Mary-Kate wore double denim, we wanted to wear double denim. The Olsen twins were truly ICONIC.
The Olsen twins had incredible style and continue to influence fashion in a big way. We can’t be the only ones who studied their outfits and hairstyles to replicate them, right?
We can’t pick just one MK & Ashley movie to be our favorite, BUT New York Minute is up there. If you’re feeling nostalgic and after reading this you now want an Olsen twin movie marathon, then New York Minute is currently streaming on Netflix!
Bridget Jones Diary (2001)
Tell us you’re a Bridget Jones without telling us you’re a Bridget Jones.
The Perfect Man (2005)
The perfect man doesn’t exi…
The Perfect Man is quite simply, a mother-daughter movie. Director Mark Rosman hit all the right emotional notes with this one. It tackles serious issues but remains lighthearted, it’s funny and of course, romantic.
Name us one movie Hilary Duff movie that you didn’t like, we’ll wait..
Love, Rosie (2014)
Now this film didn’t come out in the 00s BUT we just had to include this because it’s one of our favourite films and is a must watch in our eyes.
This movie will make you laugh, cry and seriously pull at your heart strings. If you’re a sucker for a bit of romance like us, then you will love this movie.
Yes it’s a rom-com and yes, the ending may be predictable but it’s simply just one of those movies that you can’t help but love. It’s not about the ending, for us it’s all about living in between the movie; in desperate need to see the main characters recognise love and cheering them on from the sidelines.
Also, the soundtrack is awesome.
