9 year old 'chick-flick' movies for my DD's sleepover?

My DD is about to turn 9. She is having a sleepover with 3 other female friends. We are doing nails, having pizza, and she wants to sit and watch 'romantic' films with her friends til the wee hours snuggled under duvets eating popcorn. (romantic is how she described it, I think she wants films about love and boys and best friends and probably pets. I am happy to skip over the love and boys bit, but open to ideas!

I have no idea what to get for them to watch, so suggestions are gratefully received.

A Cinderella Story with Hilary Duff is very good for her age group

13 going on 30
Mean girls
Bring it on

Bratz the movie, high school musical, Ella enchanted, princess diaries

NomiMalone Mon 22-Jun-15 23:12:25

High School Musical?

meandjulio Mon 22-Jun-15 23:12:27

The Slipper and the Rose? [old school]

Enchanted is good - romantic but child-friendly without a hint of s-e-x
DD loved Labyrinth when I insisted at gunpoint that she watched it.

Princess diaries here! Or shrek.

YesThisIsMe Mon 22-Jun-15 23:14:21

I think Mean Girls (though excellent) is just a bit much for 9 year olds.

YesThisIsMe Mon 22-Jun-15 23:15:54

Bring It On also features the word "whore" in the first 60 seconds as I recall. Good movie but....

Legally blonde

Agree that Mean Girls is too old for 9 year olds.

As is Pitch Perfect which I can't wait to watch with DD when she's old enough.

A little princess is a great film. Little women? Princess Bride?
When I was her age though, Star Wars was my favourite film!

Preminstreltension Mon 22-Jun-15 23:24:04

Parent trap?

Preminstreltension Mon 22-Jun-15 23:24:22

Mamma Mia

PollyCazaletWannabe Mon 22-Jun-15 23:25:07

Agree with Enchanted. Also Ella: enchanted (not connected). Freaky Friday. Matilda maybe? A Cinderella Story.

tabulahrasa Mon 22-Jun-15 23:25:40

I'd go with enchanted as well.

Ever After is good as well.

I was going to suggest warm bodies, but then I remembered that zombies maybe a bit much, lol

PollyCazaletWannabe Mon 22-Jun-15 23:25:57

Ooh! Also, Aquamarine.

YesThisIsMe Mon 22-Jun-15 23:26:37

Ooh yes, Princess Bride.

YesThisIsMe Mon 22-Jun-15 23:27:13

Or Stardust, though perhaps a bit scary.

VenusRising Mon 22-Jun-15 23:29:13

The princess bride - a swashbuckling story, with pirates, princes and true love.
True Grit for kick ass Mattie, sworn to avenge the murder of her father.
The Blind side, surprisingly loved by all.
Clueless, a modern Emma, with teen culture.
Kung fu panda 1 and 2 for kick ass tigress, and general family values.
Gladiator, for general kick ass ness, and amazing music.
Tomb raider 1 and 2 for kick ass Lara Croft - hilarious plots, and costumes.
Chalet girl for kick ass snowboarding.
Miss potter, for kick ass Beatrix potter, finding her own path through a Victorianly regimented life.
Star Wars, is very popular too, and
The Kings speech, for overcoming stammers etc.

And all the Jane Austens: pride and prejudice, sense and sensibility, emma, northanger abbey: BBC and also the films.

All loved by my 11 yo did and her pals. Tbh most do martial arts more than manicures, but still, you won't be bored by the films!

Can't believe no-one has mentioned Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants.
