Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl came to life on the big screen in 2014, with Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike giving fantastic performances as the bizarre odd couple Nick and Amy Dunne.

There are probably one or two movies with girl in the title that you instantly think of, but you might be surprised how many others there are too as you scroll through this list.

This ranked poll of films with girl in the title includes movies like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, His Girl Friday, and The Girl Next Door.
