We’ve curated a list of the OG Galentine’s Day movies that should be included in your movie night marathon. Time to round up the girls, get cozy in your PJs, bring the popcorn and maybe some tissues, and let’s have a great time!
Check out the top eight Galentine’s Day movies for you and your BFFs:
1. Valentine’s Day
Featuring an all-star cast and plenty of spoofs, the film explores an assortment of people’s love lives and the hilarious pressure of Valentine’s Day. Each character has their own storylines, from teenage puppy love to awkward first dates – proving to us that love has no limits.
2. The Notebook
Bring some tissues because we had to name at least one Nicholas Sparks movie. Relive The Notebook and watch Noah and Allie navigate through their relationship. Make sure to look at your best friend at some point in the movie and say, “If you’re a bird, I’m a bird.” #swoon
3. Mean Girls
4. Crazy, Stupid, Love
It’s not a coincidence that Ryan Gosling stars in two of the films on this list. In fact, we could round up an entire Gosling movie catalog and still come out with a pretty fantastic Galentine’s Day movie night. Crazy, Stupid, Love is a stand-out, and Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s chemistry is adorably obvious.
5. Pitch Perfect
Aca-scuse me? Aca-believe it. If you haven’t already seen this movie with Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, then you are in a for a treat. Get your aca-vocals ready because you and your besties will be singing throughout this entire movie.
6. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
What’s it like for four young women to find one pair of lucky pants that fit their different shapes and sizes? You go on summer adventures separately and mail the lucky pants to each other, of course! This film is the ultimate #squadgoals for true friends who are there for each other no matter the distance.
Celebrating disastrous wedding parties on Galentine’s Day is hilarious and potentially relatable. If you’re already named a maid of honor or bridesmaid in your bestie’s future wedding, be prepared to do everything opposite of this film. It’s endearing and fun and celebrates the complexity of female friendships.
UGH, AS IF! One of the classics that are still relevant to this day, this coming-of-age romantic comedy is entertaining and delightfully clever. Step it up a notch and make your movie night a Clueless-themed party! Have your friends dress up like Cher, Dionne, and Tai, and fall “totally butt-crazy in love” with this movie again.
