List of the greatest chick flicks ever, ranked by fans and casual critics like you. The best girl movies are those which we've all seen 100 times and can recite line by line, and they're among the most rewatchable movies of all time. While the "chick flick" genre can be hard to define, most films with this moniker share at least a few common characteristics. First and foremost, they appeal to women - especially younger women or teens, which means they feature strong female characters in familial or romantic relationships. Be sure to vote for your favorites, and vote down any movies that you don't think qualify as a "chick flick."

Any list of the best chick flicks would have to include one of the most romantic films of all time, "Titanic." The tragic love story of Jack and Rose is timeless. Other chick flick dramas that deserve spots on this list include "Steel Magnolias," "Beaches," and yes, "Thelma & Louise." And of course, "The Notebook" deserves a spot (or two, or five). One thing all of these chick flick dramas have in common: They are all serious tear jerkers. Can anyone get through "The Notebook's" final scene without crumpling into the fetal position in tears?

Not all of the greatest chick flicks are dramas, however. No, many of the best movies aimed at women are actually comedies -- especially romantic comedies, or "rom coms." "When Harry Met Sally..." is a great example (and really, almost any and all other movies starring Meg Ryan qualify), and so is "Clueless." And one of the best chick flick comedy movies ever, "Bridesmaids," was released in recent years. It proved, without question, that a movie about women could be rude, crude and socially unacceptable -- but still hilarious and extremely popular among movie goers.

Again, be sure to vote for the chick flicks you think are the best ever, and add any that might be missing!

Many, even most of the best romantic comedies cross over into the land of chick flicks, though many aren't quite (see: The 40 Year-Old Virgin, Wedding Crashers, and Jerry Maguire).

List Criteria: Best movies about - and enjoyed by - girls and women
