We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.
When it comes to movies, ladies rule.
Some of the world’s biggest stars have been born on Hollywood sound stages, and the most unforgettable of them have been women. We’re fascinated by them—whether that fascination is born from admiration, repulsion or lust, the moments that made them icons stay with us.
Today, the stories women tell on screen appeal mostly to… well, other women. Girls drag reluctant dates into “Legally Blonde” or “Devine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood,” and whether they’ll admit it or not, guys secretly enjoy it in spite of themselves. New romance classics like “A Walk to Remember” and “Moulin Rouge” seem to have a similar appeal, and thus also earn the bittersweet designation of “chick flick.”
With films like “The Women” and “Sex and the City: The Movie” bringing ladies back into the center of attention (where they belong) this year, it’s time to take a look at the Top 7 Chick Flicks of the past 20 years.
