If you are looking for the 40 BEST movies for girls or to watch with your daughter then you have come to the right place!

 

PLEASE NOTE:

Just a little disclaimer to say that these movies are obviously fine for either gender to watch. No stereotypes are intended here! To the contrary, as a mom of both of a son AND a daughter, whenever we are watching a movie at home, anyone is welcome to join in (if age-appropriate).

This list simply reflect only my own personal experiences of watching movies with my own kids and yes, there is definitely some overlap with their favorites so please make sure to check out my other list of THE 40 BEST MOVIES TO WATCH WITH YOUR SON. 

 

ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE:

I have offered here a wide variety of movie recommendations for all age groups. As such, some of these movies will require parental guidance. Please make sure to check out the reviews on Common Sense Media first (this is something I do before watching ANY movie with the kids) and use your own discretion. 

 

Let me start by saying I’m a real movie buff.

 

I cannot think of anything better than snuggling with my kids on the couch after a long day, with a bowl of buttered popcorn in hand.  As they get older, this experience is now saved more than often for the weekends but I still absolutely love it!

 

We all know the impact that a great movie can have on us.

 

Sometimes we learn something new. Sometimes we laugh hysterically. Sometimes we feel like we have made new friends that we are sad to leave behind.

Here you will find my list of favorite movies to watch with my daughter. Whenever we watch these movies together and chat about it afterwards, I somehow feel like our bond has been strengthened.

If you scroll down this page and notice that you haven’t seen some of these movies PLEASE BOOKMARK THIS PAGE for a rainy day. I promise you, you won’t regret it. It includes some classics that you and your daughter won’t want to miss.

 

(P.S As a bonus I have listed our top three favorite movies at the bottom of this list. These are the movies that we NEVER get tired of watching and if I could invite you over for a movie night, I’m pretty sure I would suggest these movies before anything else.)

Our Top 3 Favorite Movies From This List and Why

 

1 The Giver

The first time we saw this movie it gave me goosebumps the entire time I was watching it. Jonas lives in a seemingly perfect world of conformity and contentment but everything there is not what it seems. This dystopian film is thought-provoking, beautifully filmed and honestly, it had my kids and I hooked from beginning to end. We have watched it countless times since then and it still hasn’t lost its appeal.

2 The Odd Life Of Timothy Green

Timothy hides a secret inside his sock. The very premise of this movie is intriguing and yes, I have to admit its a tearjerker. But the kids loved it too (I promise!) because it’s one of those heartfelt films that is both sentimental and magical at the same time.

3 The Breakfast Club

Can you tell that I have a soft spot for the classics? The Breakfast Club focuses on one day in the life of five teens from different cliques, who have to spend a Saturday detention together at Sherman High. There’s “the brain, athlete, criminal, basket  case and princess” and even though they do little but hang and talk in the library together all day, there is beauty in its simplicity. This teen movie is smart, funny and heart-breakingly, earnestly real.
