20 Classic Movies Your Girls Are Going To Love

20 Classic Movies Girls Are Going To Love Including Anne of Green Gables, Wizard of Oz, Annie, Mary Poppins, Sound of Music and More | Eat Play Rock

When my daughter was little, we watched movies all the time. We have even watched a few classic movies from my youth. Some favorite movies from my youth include Anne of Green Gables and Annie. As a matter of fact, I have even read most of the “Anne” series. And who could forget Wizard of Oz? I know that everyone has their favorite classic movies, so let’s talk about a few here and hopefully you will add some of yours to the comments.

20 Classic Movies Girls Are Going To Love

One Of My Favorite Classic Movies: Annie

I think that “Annie” might be my personal favorite of the classic movies on this list. When I was a child, I always loved Annie. You just can’t help but love that bubbly personality. I also really enjoyed Mrs. Hannigan. Even though she wasn’t the best person to be in charge of the orphans, she was still really fun to watch and played the role perfectly.

I think that Annie is also really educational. From making us think about socioeconomic and class divides of that era, without us even realizing it and showing us how unconditional acceptance of others can bring you more joy than you realized, I think that this is a great to introduce to your young girls, tweens especially, if they haven’t already seen it.

Check These Movies Out For Yourself

You can click on any of these classic movies to learn more about them on Amazon, or to buy one if you like.

There are just so many great classic movies that I know that there are many that we didn’t mention. Do you have any more that favorite classic movies that you feel should be added to the list?

      My daughter is 17 and she is all about the 80s movies. I can’t even begin to tell you how many times she has seen “The Breakfast Club.” We just watched “Say Anything” together the other day. I love me some John Cusack. 🙂

  17. I can’t wait till my girls are old enough for movies like this. I remember watching Singing in the Rain when I was about 9 or so and just loving it.

  18. One of my favorite movies is the original Parent Trap. When my youngest was 4 she watched it with me and she liked it too, she sat through the whole thing. Then she was shocked to find out that Sharon/Susan was the same age as my mother.

      Hahaha! I bet that was quite a shock to your little one. I remember seeing Hayley Mills on Saved By The Bell, too.

      The newer one was actually good, too, in my opinion.

  19. My daughter is still too young for movies. But I can’t wait to show her the movies on this list!

  21. Ann Bacciaglia says

    My daughter has different taste in movies. I would prefer to watch comedies etc and she loves to watch scary movies. For her, the scarier the better.

  22. We also loved Pippi Longstocking and The Secret Garden. This makes me want to go on a movie watching binge.
