Top 50 Most Popular Girly Movies To Watch In 2023
Aishwarya-Updated Jan 19, 2023
Chick Flicks or Girly movies are films that are typically watched by girls or young women. The subject or the actors need not be women-centric to be a chick flick.
As long as the film captures the women’s perspective appropriately, a movie qualifies to be in this genre. The story can be a romance, drama, comedy, slice-of-life movie, musical, or otherwise.
Because of the wide scope, girly movies are an ever-expanding genre. One thing that is common in all chick flicks is the free expression of underlying emotions.
The best thing about chick flicks is that the audience who watches them is not strictly limited to women.
This fact makes the movie genre an unmissable category. Hence, ENTOIN brings you a list of the most popular chick flicks.
These movies are not limited to these few, and you can find many more, but I have picked a few movies that I loved.
If there are any movies that you feel were missed, leave me a message, and we will include the movies.
But, make sure you watch these movies as they are all made for light-watching and stress-free enjoyment.
