Kulbhushaan Raghuvanshi
The basic definition of a chick flick is, "Something that a woman will enjoy and a man won't". These movies contain certain elements which appeal only to women, but that doesn't mean it has nothing for the average man. Here is a list of movies which are equally adored by men and women.
These films are especially designed to target female audience, especially young girls. Some critics even call it a waste of time and money and dismiss them by calling it, "A short trip to the beauty salon". Critics-schmitics! Only women know what a good chick flick can do to their mood. Here's a list of chick flicks that are a must watch.

Legally Blonde

It is about a simple blonde who gets dumped by her boyfriend because he thinks that she is not smart enough for him. She vows to win his love back and enters Harvard to study law with him. Reese Witherspoon has given one of the best performances of her career as Elle Woods.
