When you need company to see the latest weepie or romantic comedy (or your date just bails on you out of the blue), your BFFs come in handy. With Bravo's new series, 'Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce' airing December 2, check out this list of films you'll want to watch with your galpals.
Letters to Juliet (2010)
Loosely inspired by Shakespeare's 'Romeo & Juliet,' this underseen weepie stars Amanda Seyfriend as a girl who helps an older woman reunite with a long-lost love, and in the process finds a Romeo for herself. Gorgeous Italian settings, lots of red wine and Seyfried's adorable performance earn this movie a spot in your queue.
Just Wright (2010)
Always the best friend -- and never the girlfriend -- Queen Latifah stars in this dramedy about the ups and downs of being single. 'Wright' proudly wears its romantic heart on its sleeve as Latifah's character struggles to find love with an NBA star (Common), who initially has the hots for her gold-digging galpal.
Sex and the City (2008) and Sex and the City 2 (2010)
This foursome of fashionistas always find the humor and heart in the single life -- and sometimes a little adventure, as 'City 2' finds the girls leaving the Big Apple to sip Cosmos in Abu Dhabi.
Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky (2010)
Looking for a steamy, period love story with emphasis on the steamy? This Paris-set love story about the illicit affair between Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky has got you covered. Lots of longing glances and languid poses ensue.
I Am Love (2010)
Oscar-winner Tilda Swinton gives a compelling performance in this 2010 inde, playing the wife of a cultured aristocrat who enters a passionate affair with her husband’s best friend, a master chef. Swinton's exceptional work, coupled with the sweeping Milan setting, makes 'Love' a must-see movie.
The Twilight Saga (2008 - 2012)
The 'Twilight' films tell the classic tale of "girl meets vampire," whose feeling are split between him and a hunky werewolf, naturally. The love-triangle drama between Bella, Edward and Jacob involves glittery skin and longing stares, enough to sustain four films in this hit franchise. You and your friends can watch in between Team Edward/Team Jacob debates.
Step-Up 3D (2010)
You watch the 'Step-Up' films for three things: Dancing, dancing and more dancing. In between the film's sappy romantic moments, you'll see some of the best dance sequences in the history of ever. There are worse guilty pleasures.
Going the Distance (2010)
No one likes the toll a long-distance relationship takes, but Drew Barrymore and Justin Long find often hilarious ways to make the best out of it in this underrted rom-com. For fans of movies like '500 Days of Summer,' this film's smarty and heartfelt comedy will deliver.
Eat Pray Love (2010)
Julia Roberts goes on quite the world tour in this adaptation of the popular book about a bored divorcee who visits three different countries in search of herself and meaning in life. In between keen observations about life, she also manages to find true love. Crack out lots of tissues for this one.
