I have a friend (same age, born in '83) who hasn't seen a lot of movies that other people take for granted. She's like a sweeter, more naive version of myself. Growing up with Indian parents we don't have a lot of the same pop-culture references as other people, and she recently asked me for a list of movies that I think she needs to see.
She's not a nerd so I'm not looking for anything super-geeky unless it was also mainstream. Also girly movies get extra points. And they don't strictly have to be from the 80s and 90s, I just think that's probably the best place to start. I know there are a ton of lists out there but I thought people could throw out some names here.
So far I'm thinking things like:
Back to the Future
When Harry Met Sally
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
