Designated bro time dons the name "guys' night" and presents an overload and an unhealthy amount of pizza, beer, poker, and sports game. Well, maybe it's just way too much masculinity for the ladies to handle. Like, where's the nail polish, guys?
A girls' night is the only solution to the broadening boy-only events and, well, about a million times more fabulous. And instead of hitting the clubs and boutiques with all the girls, sometimes a classy and comfy "night in" is just what a group of gals need.
To make any girls' night a worthwhile occasion, six key ingredients are essential. And guess what? They're all found in chick flicks! What did you think these films were for? Here's a list of the six things you need for a glamorous girls' night and the movies that will fill the fix.
For the Nostalgia…
This is where Disney Channel Movies obtained their star status. This movie was made in 2000 and is about a girl who switches places with a real life look-a-like who isn't her twin. Mary Kate and Ashley did a similar twinnie thing in It Takes Two, but this little gem has Justin Timberlake in it. So, there really isn't the need for any more explanation.
For the Food and Drinks…
Having cocktails and hors d'oeuvres is the classy way to… OK, let's make it frank. A girls' night has got to have snacks. It's just not that fun without 'em. People get grouchy and a full belly will make things so much more pleasant. Mix up a pretty cocktail and visit a bakery before the big night, or just watch this movie and drool over Marie Antoinette's culinary genius.
For the Tunes…
And then there's always Meryl Streep in Mama Mia—a movie marathon must-have.
For the Clothes…
Sex and the City
Dying to covet Carrie's closet? Yeah, all the other millions of women in the world are too. Talking about swag, bling and makeup tricks can all be umbrellaed under the gem that is Sex and the City. Mr. Big is also on the priorities list.

For the Guys…
It's the one time bros can show up at girls' night. Make sure you're serving your guests a generous dose of eye-candy to your guests—which really means that Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey should be in attendance.
For the Laughs…
It's Kristen Wig at her finest, and she's giving you the most perfect opportunity to laugh your butt off! And really, this movie is the test of true friendship—Annie completely ruined the French-themed bridal shower. While Lils kind of deserved it, we still wish the huge cookie wasn't thrown on the ground, and Annie could have definitely used the company of the party-favor puppy too.
