    Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants

    There are a lot of really cute teen movies, but most of them have girls fighting with each other until the end. But this is all about how a pair of pants kept four friends together, and how distance can't truly separate best friends. And all these girls are just gorgeous. You'll want to hate them a little, but they'll win you over!

    A League of Their Own

    Batter up... here that call.... There may be no crying in baseball, but there may be crying during this movie. This fictional story about when "girls" took over major league baseball, was important for bringing to attention another way in which women contributed to America, and how friendship is important to women. Plus, it's a movie we actually LIKED Madonna in!
