Galentine's Day: 7 movies to watch on Netflix if you're staying in with the gals tonight

Happy Galentine's Day.

It's the greatest holiday of the year, after Christmas, New Year's Eve, Easter, and my birthday.

Whether you're planning on staying in with the gals this evening or heading out for a few extremely-single drinks, chances are you're always going to want to have a decent Netflix lineup waiting for you back home.

And if so, you're in luck, because we've only gone and compiled a comprehensive list of ideal Netflix movies that absolutely reek of independence, prosecco, and men doing questionable things.


1. A Simple Favour

Just gals being gals, here. Nothing unruly to see.

Blake Lively isn't going to go entirely rogue and turn this movie on its head while wearing a selection of incredible pants suits.

Definitely not.

2. To All The Boys I've Loved Before

An obvious one here, but a goodie all the same.

Sit back, relax, and watch Lana Condor chat about how much she loves Noah Centineo and a whole host of other boys while being entirely delighted that you, in fact, don't love anybody.

3. Clueless 

Self-explanatory this one, really.

Clever, but not too clever. Funny, but not side-splittingly hilarious. Proof that Paul Rudd is indeed a vampire and that nobody could ever age as well as he has done.

Worth the rewatch, again and again.

4. When Harry Met Sally 

Alright alright, When Harry Met Sally isn't exactly an independent woman type of flick, but it is hilarious, heartwarming, and aims to close the orgasm gap.

All one could ever want from a romcom, tbh.

5. Lady Bird 

Multiple Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronan struggles with life, love, and an overbearing mother in Greta Gerwig's directorial debut.

Laugh, cry, and be mesmerised by Ronan's performance alongside Timothée Chalamet who is equal parts transparent yet totally misunderstood.

6. Knocked Up

A reminder as to why sex is bad, always.

7. La La Land

Fall in love with Hollywood, jazz, and Ryan Gosling's character's ability to still be totally desirable while remaining an absolute asshole.

La La Land is a fine example of how happy you can truly be if you give up on true love and go your own way.

Decent, authentic viewing, tbh.
