What are some good movies for teenage girls?

Asked by 15barcam (756points) May 8th, 2011

My girlfriends and I are have a movie night, (and I mean movies ALL night), so I am required to bring at least two. PLEASE no R rated movies because I am NOT a fan. Any kind of movies would be great except for horror. Thanks!

Bring It On & Mean Girls FTW!

I also just recently saw Easy A which was surprisingly pretty funny.

10 Things I Hate About You and Clueless.

10 Things is a modern retelling of Shakespeare’s Taming of The Shrew and Clueless is a retelling of Jane Austen’s Emma.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is great if you’re down for a sappy chick flick!

Here is a list of the Best PG Movies of The Past 20 Years. From this list, I’d most likely bring The Princess Bride. It might be one that everyone has already seen, but there are some brilliant quotes that could be integrated in the group dynamics.

Fly Away Home would probably be a second choice. That Thing You Do! would probably be Choice #3.

Bringing Up Baby and Breakfast At Tiffany’s are fantastic old movies. And any of the Disney princess movies, actually any Disney movie, would just rock.

Okay, okay, okay, okay. You absolutely have (and I mean have) to bring The Prince and Me and Chasing Liberty. You will be revered forever. My sister and I watch those movies together all the time, I swear we’ve seen them each twenty times. But they never get old! Absolutely perfect for a girl’s movie night!

Sixteen Candles
Pretty in Pink
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
Pride and Prejudice
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Real Women Have Curves
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Uncle Buck
(Most John Hughes films, really)

The Best, best, best: A Little Romance (Diane Lane as a girl of 13 and Lawrence Olivier) just a lovely little film about a bookish American girl, living in France who falls in love with a scrappy French boy who is also very intellectual…and they run away with Lawrence Olivier as their “chaperone” to kiss under the Bridge of Sighs in Italy….it’s the best puppy love movie and very well written and acted. One of my all-time favorites.

The Professional or alternately titled Leon or Leon, the Professional.

Starring Jean Reno and a very young (12) year old Natalie Portman as a young girl wanting to avenge the death of her parents at the hands of a crooked cop (Gary Oldman) by learning from her neighbor (a professional hitman).

It’s a rather mature theme and quite interesting but I don’t believe it’s R rated. I could be mistaken but I’ll go check.

It’s just really good storytelling and the plot keeps you fascinated. It’s an excellent film but different from typical teen stuff.

I checked and it’s unrated, (whatever that means).

Somewhere In Time
Austin Powers ( International Man of Mystery )
Little Women
Beauty and the Beast
Kiki’s Delivery Service

@Buttonstc Thought of that movie but when I recalled that scene when Oldman went to “see” Natalie’s family, that may be too intense.

Buttonstc's avatar

Yeah it obviously has violent parts, so thats a consideration

But most R rated films are given that rating mainly because of gratuitous sexual content. So I’m assuming that’s why it isn’t an R.

But I described enough of the plot to indicate that some violence (not a whole lot) integral to the plot exists.

If they’d prefer happier fare, this wouldn’t fit the bill, obviously :)

But if they want a change of pace and a more serious theme, at least this isn’t like a lot of the schlock put out by Hollywood. And it’s obvious why Natalie became a star in later films. And any film with Oldman and Danny Aiello in it can’t be all that bad after all.

Besides, you already listed one of my faves ( S. I. T. ) :D and all the John Hughes films already mentioned. And I really like offbeat stuff.

mazingerz88's avatar

@Buttonstc Yes Portman carried that movie in my view. And the plot was refreshing when the movie came out.

A good movie would be 50 First Dates with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. If you love hawaiian paradise.
