Popcorn. Junk Food. Drinks. Gossip. And the best girl’s night movies. That’s all you need for the perfect ladies night in. Let’s talk about the top 10 girl’s night movies that every lady will enjoy.
A common misconception about adulthood is that we get married and stop spending time with friends. Slumber Parties are now called “Girl’ Nights” and we still gossip, binge-watch movies, and devour as much junk as humanly possible. The only other difference is that our nights consist of lots & lots of wine and our topics are very adult in nature, sometimes. Instead of talking about how much we like certain boys, we’re complaining about our men. I personally feel like these nights are much more rewarding than they were as kids. It seems like the best movie nights are also girl’s nights. If you’re planning your next girl’s night in, then you’ll probably want to pick up these 10 movies.
The TOP 10 Girl’s Night Movies About Friendship
1. Beaches (2017)
This movie follows a lifelong friendship between two women. It shows the ups and down between a friendship between girls who transition into women.

But Cher, who lives with her tough yet warm-hearted lawyer dad (Dan Hedaya) and hunky, sensitive stepbrother (Paul Rudd), also has an innate urge to help those less fortunate — like the two introverted teachers she brings together (“negotiating” herself improved grades in the process) and new friend Tai (Brittany Murphy), who starts out a geek and ends up a Cher prodigy. Cher also possesses her own sensitive side, and she is look ing for the perfect boyfriend, whom she ends up finding where she least expected.
