It’s February, which means Galentine’s Day is upon us! If you haven’t heard of it, Leslie Knope crowned February 13th as a day to celebrate amazing female friendships. While we’re forced to stay in this year, and most likely separate from our close friends, that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate with our favorite big screen female friendships! So we’ve gathered the top 27 movies to watch on Galentine’s Day.
- Girls Trip
Since we can’t actually travel and party with our best friends, watching Girls Trip is the next best thing. This movie will leave you laughing for hours!
The throwback we all need! A classic 2000’s story of a group of friends living that one crazy night that changes everything.
- Bend it Like Beckham
Kiera Knightly and Parminder Nagra defying their parents’ gender norms to play soccer will give your Galentine’s Day a sense of empowerment.
Most people know that feeling of the final days of high school, with the scary thoughts about moving away from your best friend, but Booksmart turns it into a hilarious and heartfelt adventure.
- First Wives Club
Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn, and Diane Keaton come together to take down their ex husbands. Need I say more?
Amy Pohler and Tina Fey reunite as sisters who throw the most epic house party before they have to move out of their childhood home.
- Someone Great
Let’s just cry and scream and sing and dance with Gina Rodriguez.
- Ocean’s 8
Why yes, we would like to spend our evening watching an amazing group of brilliant women work together to pull off a heist. Thanks for asking.
- Sister Act (2)
Sometimes women come from different worlds, like Reno and a nunnery, and don’t quite understand each other, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have anything in common that could lead to a great friendship.
- Pitch Perfect
There’s no resisting a hilarious sisterhood bond that’s formed through song!
- Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion
You can’t go wrong with this classic best friends movie about two girls who pretend they made it big by creating the post-it at their high school reunion. The fashion alone will give you major 90’s nostalgia.
You can’t have Galentine’s Day without a makeover movie sprinkled with some teenage angst!
- Baby Mama
Tina Fey and Amy Pohler having a baby together is the comedy we all need to lighten our evening.
- Charlie’s Angels
Maybe you’re more in a crime fighting mood, and thus need some quality time with Charlie’s Angels kicking everyone’s butt.
While we’re all stuck in our houses, it’s nice to live vicariously through Britney Spears and her friends as they road trip across the country.
- Waiting to Exhale
It’s not all about the teenagers! This group of four best friends help each other through relationships with terrible men all while dealing with the pitfalls of the professional world.
- 9 to 5
For the girls who need to rant about the actions of their terrible, sexist boss, it’s definitely a 9 to 5 night.
- Princess Diaries (2)
A double feature Princess Diaries night is a fantastic way to celebrate Galentine’s Day, and we don’t hate a movie with Chris Pine.
- Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
Sometimes you just want to cry a bit and watch how female friendships can get you through just about anything.
- The Spy Who Dumped Me
One of my personal favorites. This movie is hilarious, entertaining, and such an advocate for how to lift up your friends.
Just all around funny and entertaining, even with two friends fighting like crazy the entire movie.
Boss women killing the game and taking no prisoners is always a must-see.
Another hilarious movie that shows you don’t have to be the popular girls to kick some butt.
- Legally Blonde
We love to see two women who are pitted against each other, team up to take down the pigheaded men in their lives.
- Uptown Girls
It’s not always about friends. Sometimes it’s about mentors, and Uptown Girls will teach you more than you think about what it means to be a role model.
- The Women
In this house (and movie) we don’t stand cheating men.
- The House Bunny
Yes, La La Land was great, but have you seen Emma Stone mentored by Anna Faris who plays a playboy bunny in The House Bunny?
