2. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

If you want a a feel good movie, this is it. It’s basically a story of three friends who bunk off school for the day and go on a mad adventure.

3. When Harry Met Sally

Possibly one of the most iconic rom coms of all time. This movie follows Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal as they try to prove that men and women can have a truly platonic relationship…we can all see where this is going.

Need we say any more? If you haven’t seen it already, what have you been doing with your time?! This film has romance, 80s fashion and Patrick Swayze, what more could you want from a chick flick?

5. Bridget Jones’s Diary

With four films to pick from, a Bridget binge-fest is exactly what you need to add a little feel-good attitude to your day.

7. Heathers

This dark comedy from 1988 is all about the popular girls ‘The Heathers’, but when they accidentally poison someone, the story takes a twisted turn. Starring Winona Ryder, this is definitely a movie you should tick off your list.

8. Mean Girls

Possibly a movie of a generation, Mean Girls has become one of the most quotable films of the last 10 years. Even if you’ve seen it a million times, it never gets boring. Follow Cady as she tries to work her way into the popular group, or ‘the plastics’ as they are known.

9. Bring it on

If you love Cheer on Netflix, then you will be obsessed with Bring It On. Starring Kirsten Dunst and the rest of the squad as they create their best routine yet.

Bring it on

The ultimate coming of age film that combines kids from every clique in the school, the only thing they have in common is detention. They start to learn loads about each other and realise they are more similar than they thought.

14. Pretty Woman

Pretty Woman is probably one of the most referenced movies of all time. Follow Julia Roberts and a dreamy Richard Gere as they fall in love under unusual circumstances.

15. The Notebook

If you ever fancy a good cry, just pop The Notebook on. Released in 2004, it tells the story of Allie and Noah (Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling), a couple who were separated by fate. It’s also based on a book of the same name.

Easy A stars Emma Stone as she smashes down the stereotypes of slut-shaming. It’s a feel good movie with loads of famous faces, including Phoebe from Friends and Aly Michalka

19. She’s The Man

Possibly one of the best early-teen films ever?! Based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night (very loosely), this comedy stars Amanda Bynes as she goes undercover to play football at her brother’s school.

20. Titanic

Maybe the best love story ever? Filled with fancy-ass clothes, a young Leonardo Di Caprio and a heartbreaking divide between rich and poor, Titanic is a timeless classic that everyone should see at least once in their lifetime.
