20 flick chick movies that we all love and did not know are based on books


The chick flicks they are the genre in which films that dedicate their stories to topics such as love and romance are classified. Although many films of this type can be directed towards the female genre, the term is usually used only when talking about films that are highly emotional or that deal with themes that are based on the relationships of people (not necessarily romantic, since many others may be present).

The stories, the protagonists, the places and even the music give us moments of laughter and tears that not any film achieves. Many of the chick flicks come from books that belong to the genre chick lit (Literature for girls) and some of the adaptations have been better than the text, although in other occasions they have been left to us to have. But, outside of that, in PinkMyRide we want to present you chick flicks of the last years that you should not miss if you love to stay on your sofa accompanied by popcorn and ice cream.
