Movies (chick flicks)

Since I have been posting about beauty/clothes lately, it's time to go back to what this blog is really about.
And since I'm making an effort to be less sarcastic/irritable, I thought I'd share with you the list of movies I watched over break. I am including a self-written short summary of each movie (if I can remember).
Every girl is a "chick flick person." Don't deny it. Fuel the addiction!
  1. Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging
    1. This is a British movie about a girl named Georgia who is likes this guy, and her best friend likes that guy's brother. The best friend and crush's brother start going out and "snogging" (aka making out) in front of each other and ignoring their friends. Everyone starts hating Georgia all of a sudden when she kicks her best friend's shin. It's great timing, because her parents want to move.
  2. 10 Things I Hate About You
    1. Popular Sister #2 can't date until unpopular Sister #1 does. So, Sister #2's boyfriend to-be starts paying someone to go out with Sister #1. Sister #1 and the guy start to actually fall in love, until Sister #1 finds out what he's up to.
  3. Another Cinderella Story
    1. A famous, Justin Bieber-type dances with an unpaid maid/stepsister (Selena Gomez) to a rich family. He's determined to find out who it was he danced with. He is rude to the maid/stepsister, so she doesn't tell him it was her at first. Then she does tell him, and they start to date, and her stepsisters sabotage their relationship.
  4. Easy A
    1. A girl (Emma Stone) is thought of as the school slut when people find out she told her best friend that she slept with someone during a one night stand (which is a lie to get her friend off her back). Her other friend (gay) asks her to fake having sex with him at a party (so people will think he's straight), and she does. Other boys start asking her for the same favor, and then people start thinking she's prostituting.
  5. 13 Going on 30
    1. A girl was at her 13th birthday party, playing 7 Minutes in Heaven. She thinks a popular boy is coming into the closet with her. Instead, her best friend (male) comes. (the other party-goers ditch) They figure out she thinks it's someone else, and she ditches him. The next morning, she wakes up 30 with a boyfriend who wants to go all the way, and everyone hates her, and she finds out she's cheating on her boyfriend with a married man. She works at a successful magazine company. Her "best friend" (who was attending her 13th birthday party) is sabotaging the company, which she discovers later.
  6. Mean Girls
    1. New girl becomes friends with popular girls as a social experiment planned by her "real" friends. She gets a makeover, and helps create the Burn Book. When her popular friends get annoyed with her, they spread copies of pages from the Burn Book. New girl takes full credit for the Burn Book.
  7. Mean Girls 2
    1. New, "I don't care what anyone thinks of me" girl takes over popularity and becomes an annoying, obsessive Popular Girl. Her best friend's father is paying her to be best friends. She gives back the money, but nobody knows that. All they know is that she's getting paid. The old Popular Girls revealed this. New girl's friends turn their backs on her in her time of need.
  8. The Princess Diaries

  11. Legally Blond 2
  12. Half of Material Girls
    1. Popular cosmetic company's business is decreasing ever since company's founder left. Founder's daughters burn their mansion down and are forced to live in poorer but doable conditions. I hated this movie so much I stopped watching halfway through!

  19. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
    1. A group of friends find a pair of jeans that fits all of them perfectly. They each go their separate ways for the summer, and they mail the jeans to each other, with a set of rules. Each girl gets the jeans for 1 week, documents things that happened while she was wearing them, then sends them off to the next girl. They blame everything that happens on the pants, claiming that they're good luck, then bad luck, and so on.
