Movies to Watch with Your Girlfriends on Galentine’s Day
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it might seem like love is in the air, but it has been hard to find someone to even like during this pandemic with the masks on and the woes of socially distant meetings. The only thing we can count on now is a great Galentine’s Day, to celebrate with our best friends ditching the cloth masks for some rejuvenating face masks, chocolates that we can buy for ourselves and some good movies. With that being said, Libas Now has rounded up some hilarious movies for the perfect girl’s night in, for reassessing that breakup and forgiving your teenage self for all that bad attitude.
A hopeful story about the dynamics of a millennial romance in the era of social media. The movie perfectly encapsulates the reality of forming a relationship and watching it slowly crumble, as you’re left with bits and pieces that only cause discomfort as you recollect those memories. But the music, the cast and their chemistry, the visuals of best friends celebrating their last days together in New York, everything about the movie is executed according to the formula of making a hit girl’s night movie.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (Trilogy)
A teenage girl confessing her love to her crushes by writing them letters that are meant to be a secret; what could possibly go wrong? But in this absolutely cute and cheesy teenage love story, everything eventually turns out even better and will leave you swooning, wishing you were also sitting on a bench, under a pink cherry blossom tree, stealing love-struck glances at your crush. Your movie night would only get better as you binge-watch the trilogy and get lost in its charm.
What more can be said about a cult classic that has initiated the leap into teenage-hood for many. At some point, all the teenage girls in the 2000s watched this film and understood that one cannot proceed to be a female unless you let this movie mark a permanent residence in your brain. It doesn’t matter if you like it or hate it, the fact is that Mean Girls is the truest yet most satirical depiction of high school culture and re-watching it with your girlfriends is exactly what you need to do to remind them, if needed, to stop trying to make fetch happen!
An all-female cast that is so hilarious you wouldn’t even notice that there are hardly any male characters. The most accurate depiction of how you can be your ugliest, most gross, sad, horrible self in front of your best friend, and in the process, end up almost ruining her wedding, but she’ll still end up forgiving you and love you because she’s the only person who will let you be that comfortable. That’s what BFFs are for.
It is not a typical Christmas romance movie. It really isn’t. Starring Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey, it is a lighthearted watch, with the right amount of clichés and romance-y plot twists. It will keep you hooked till the end for the perfect happy ending in a pre-pandemic world that will leave your heart as content as it is after having some hot chocolate.
