Great list! I usually rent a ton of chick flicks when my kids go on holidays with their father. Thanks for the ideas :)

Gina Ardito said...

Yes, yes, yes! Love Actually, Bridget Jones. Hmmm... what do these movies have in common? Hugh Grant and Colin Firth. Yum!

Jennifer Elbaum said...

Ah, Romancing the Stone
What writer can't relate to that opening sequence when Joan is sobbing as she writes?

Rhonda Stapleton said...

Oooooh great list. I TOTALLY dig faboo chick flicks!!!

Debbie Mumford said...

You've got several favorites of mine up there! Sigh. The newer version of Sabrina ... of course, I love the original, too!

Elizabeth Parker said...

Yes, yes... and how about another Hugh Grant flick--"Four Weddings and a Funeral"!

Jennifer McK said...

"Love Actually" and "The Mirror Has Two Faces" are two of my favorites. Along with "Practical Magic".

R.G. ALEXANDER said...

Sliding Doors-I loved that movie premise. And did someone say Practical magic?
I really like most of the movies on your list :)

Tempest Knight said...

Oooh... I loved Chocolat. I never looked at chocolate the same way. Hehehe!

Jennifer Shirk said...

YES! I second 2, 4, 5, 7 and 13!!

(I'll have to check out the rest)LOL!

Amelia June said...

I think you meant to say

Chocolat starring Johnny Depp as the hottest long-haired gypsy EVAR.

Er, maybe not. But dang he was hot in that movie, LOL.

Lia said...

I love Bill Nighy. He is so funny in Love Actually. Saying that Brittany was a bad shag, still makes me laugh.

Stephanie Secrest said...

Sliding Doors and Love Actually! Two of my most favoritest movies! I like Chasing Amy, but I'm more of a Clerks/Clerks 2 girl myself.

Paige Tyler said...

Great list!


Loribelle Hunt said...

Great list! Romancing the Stone and Sabrina...can't go wrong there. ;)

Bernadette Gardner and Jennifer Colgan said...

Love Actually has to be one of my favorites. And of course, I've BEEN Joan, sobbing over my manuscript LOL. I like Chasing Amy too.

Heather said...

Excellent list--I've seen all but five, my absolute fave being Chocolat.
