Take a look instead at the following five movies that you may have forgotten or overlooked:
This is known as the national anthem of best friends from the nineties, and for good reason. This coming of age piece is loosely based on Jane Austen’s matchmaking novel titled “Emma.” Set in the nineties, though, this Alicia Silverstein film is sure to bring back some memories! Watch Sher try to navigate the love scene by setting up her friends with all the wrong people. The lingo, clothes and music will be enough to make you glad to be back in our modern world.
2. Pride And Prejudice
And speaking of Jane Austen, this book with the same title is a masterpiece. A true film for the ladies, there are several adaptations to choose from. You can make it a month-long marathon if you want to go with Colin Firth, or choose the most recent rendition with Keira Knightley. Either way, you can’t go wrong with a little Austen in your life.
3. Wayne’s World
If you are wondering which films to watch with your best friend, then please don’t neglect Wayne’s World.

4. Thelma and Louise
If you are wondering which films to watch with your friend, then you certainly have to add Thelma and Louise to your list. The quintessential women’s power film, this cinematic classic is the gift that keeps on giving. With stellar performances from both Gina Davis and Susan Sarandon, this film was nominated for a whopping six academy awards. The film details the road trip of two women who find themselves the subjects of a wanted campaign by police for the murder of an unsightly man at a bar. With the iconic ending scene, you’ll want to clap, laugh and cry all at once. And maybe go on a road trip with your friend. Minus the murder, of course.
