Grab A Box of Tissues, These Are The Best Chick Flicks of 2008

Not just any movie can earn the honor of being called a chick flick. To earn the title a movie has to be light-hearted, have a female main character and a plot that revolves around love or dating. But even with those strict criteria, 2008 had a ton of great choices. In fact, we had to brutally cut some great chick flicks including one with Patrick Dempsey, which is how you know we were serious about this.

4Sex and the City

Score one for girl-power in this chick flick. Major spoiler alert here: It doesn’t end like other chick flicks. While it fulfills all the criteria of a female lead, light-hearted comedy and a plot all about dating, the guy and girl don’t get together in this one. Instead, this movie focuses on the power of female friendship to get a girl through the tough times brought on by all the romance that the other movies are talking about. Although that may have lost it some points as a chick flick, it gains some extra credit for being a spin-off from the ultimate in chick-flick-style TV.

Of course, there were plenty that didn’t make the cut. Made of Honor, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Twilight are just of the few examples of 2008 releases that just couldn’t fight their way to the Top 5. Think you can make their case? Give it a shot. Especially Twilight — We’d love to see you argue that one.
