10 Best Chick Flicks of 2009
Run, don’t walk, to your nearest movie theater or Blockbuster to check out these must-see movies.
These chick flicks aren’t just guilty pleasures, they’re a collection of musical, emotion-filled, action-packed, fashion-crazed, food-obsessed treats that should be enjoyed over and over again.
10. The Ugly Truth
Katherine Heigl, playing an uptight producer, gets love advice from Gerard Butler’s caddish reporter. How can they not fall in love? It’s, like, Rom-Com 101!
9. Julie and Julia
We think the fabulous Meryl Streep is a shoo-in for yet another Best Actress Oscar nomination, which would normally be enough for us, but the portrayal of Julia Child’s relationship with her husband (played winningly by Stanley Tucci) seals the deal. Oh, and Amy Adams is in it, too.
8. The September Issue
Not what one would normally consider to be a part of this category, but this documentary about Anna Wintour and her staff at Vogue putting together the most important issue of the year is riveting from start to finish.
7. Whip It
The first of two Drew Barrymore movies in this list, this one also happens to be her feature-directing debut. And, it’s got Ellen Page and Kristen Wiig in it. And, it’s about roller derby. You do the math.
