Alongside this, you will want to get straight to the laughs and jokes, so unless you happen to stumble across a brilliant classic chick flick on live TV, click here for TV aerial installation, we thought we would help you out by listing a few hilarious films for a girls’ night in.
She’s the Man
Have you ever wondered what Amanda Bynes would look like if she was a boy? No? Us neither. But if you were intrigued, be sure to tune into this comical teen favourite. When Bynes’ character Viola learns that her school soccer team has been cut, she decides that her next possible solution to continuing her passion is to fill her brother’s role at the new school he is supposed to be attending. As he jets off to London, Viola makes the remarkable transformation, with the help of her friends, into a guy, and attempts to adapt to her new role as a soccer-loving male. We say attempts as she isn’t the best at being a guy. However, her boy acting skills do prove to be comedy gold.
The group of characters involved in this classic chick-flick is nothing short of amazing and iconic. Featuring the likes of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Rose Bryne, you can guarantee that this film will have everyone laughing endlessly. When Wiig’s character, Annie is promoted to the maid of honour by her best friend Lillian, she realises after meeting the rest of the bridesmaid team that she has some competition as Lillian’s affluent friend, Helen, portrayed by Bryne, attempts to beat her efforts. The dynamics of the group and the different personalities make this film one, big hilarious clash.
What Happens in Vegas
When Jack and Joy, portrayed by Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz meet in Vegas following mishaps in both of their lives, the pair seem to be getting on extremely well as they progressively become more and more intoxicated. Upon waking up the next day, they realise that they have tied the knot. With the hopes of getting a quick divorce after leaving Sin City, the plan comes to a halt after they win a three-million-dollar jackpot. As they attempt to have a go at the marriage for the sake of the money, they begin to sabotage each other piece by piece when they realise that they cannot stand each other. The hilarity is real as the pair become extremely brutal towards one another before they realise that they may be in love.
Speaking of sabotage, this does seem to be a common theme in hilarious films for a girls’ night, as two childhood best friends begin to sabotage one another after going head-to-head over a wedding within this 2009 favourite. Starring Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway, as best friends Liv and Emma, who have been obsessed with wedding planning since they were young girls, events take a quick turn when their weddings are unexpectedly booked for the same date. With both brides reluctant to switch the date, the battle begins. With hair dye and fake tan disasters, this film is sure to keep the whole group laughing. Click here to learn more.
Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging
If you are a teenage girl or have been at some point, you will be sure to relate to some of the issues going on in high school teenager Georgia Groome’s abnormal life. Her group of friends is certainly not the most popular, she is extremely insecure about her appearance, her family has constant issues, she fears that she will never get a boyfriend, oh and she has a sometimes annoying, sometimes lovable cat with a confusing name, Angus. The series of unfortunate events going on in Georgia’s life is somewhat laughable, however, her life begins to shape up when her love interest finally takes an interest in her and her weird ways.
When teenager Cady Heron moves from Africa to North Shore High School, she fails in making friends until she befriends two outsiders, Janis and Damian. They make her aware of the school dynamics, highlighting each of the groups and cliques within the high school, drawing particular attention to the group known as “the plastics”, comprised of Regina, Gretchen, and Karen, the certified mean girls of the school. As Cady attempts to sabotage them following Janis’ wishes, she finds herself befriending the group in a plot to take Regina down. To be honest, we aren’t too sure what the funniest or most iconic scene in this film is. Whether it be handing out candy canes to Glen Coco, Damian shouting “she doesn’t even go here”, or Cady feeding Regina weight gain bars in an attempt to sabotage her status, the full film is comedy gold and one of the most hilarious films for a girls’ night.
