Not too sure what kind of movies they'd like.

A Cinderella Story is fun, a bit dated since it's texting is 2004... back when you had flip phones and used T9. haha.

I loved Mystery Men, super hero movie.

Pretty Woman was one I loved when I was younger.

LEGALLY BLONDE! Oh, that movie. So good.

Confessions of a Shopaholic
Miss Congeniality
Mamma Mia!
The Devil Wears Prada
27 Dresses
When in Rome
Back to the Future
She's the Man was funny
Nick and Norah's Infinite playlist is good, but it may be a bit old for them, there is a sorta sex scene...
Scott Pilgrim Vs the World
The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

It just dawned on me that they may not want me to watch it with them

Damn, you got me with that one....

Thanks for all the suggestions, the party was a success.  I campaigned hard for Clueless but I couldn't convince them based on the trailer. 

Mean Girls was the final choice and they really seemed to enjoy it.

Mean Girls is a good choice too... less dated than Clueless :P.

The first time I saw Mean Girls when I was on my study abroad year in the US and we got to see an advanced screening of it on campus before it was officially released :).

geeze, sonofasailor, stop trying to make 'fetch' a thing...
:)

I thought they might like Mean Girls. It's kind of an updated Clueless, not so much in it's shakespearian glory, but that it deals with cliques and had a huge affect on a generation.

It was before.. oh god, what is her name? The redhead... Lindsay Lohan had her drug and alcohol problems.

It was perfectly at their level, with some mild jokes about periods and sex, but nothing too scary.  It wasn't a Shakespearean drama though. 

I didn't know Clueless is a Shakespeare story.  Which one?   Maybe we'll watch it as a family movie

Clueless isn't Shakespearian, it's a modern retelling of Jane Austen's Emma.

10 Things I Hate About You is an adaptation of The Taming of the Shrew though.

Hmmm, normally I dislike Jane Austen pretty intensely but I might give that a try.

Thanks!

Haha, right!
I was remember that She's the Man is a retelling of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and 10 things I hate about you was Taming of the Shrew. I got carried away.

I've not read Emma, but I have seen one of the movie adaptations. I just couldn't get into Pride and Prejudice when I tried, so I doubt Emma has much of a shot...

West Side Story was inspired by Romeo and Juliette.
