Must List

Take a chance on love and life with these movies

Ever feel like you aren’t spontaneous or courageous enough? Ever wish you could just try something new or just go with the flow? It’s hard to take a chance in life when the odds are against you or people are telling you not to.

Sometimes you just have to listen to yourself and figure it all out on your own, though. So in honor of it being Take a Chance Day (yep, it’s April 23), get inspired with these movies about everyday people just taking chances and trying something new!


Legally Blonde

Elle Woods is smart and rich, but she’s also a bit ditzy and the stereotypical blonde girl. When she gets dumped by her hot BF and doesn’t know what to do with her life, she takes a chance and turns it upside down! Elle sets her sights on winning her guy back, which means tackling law school, mean girls…and all the people who told her she couldn’t do it!


50 First Dates

This is the story of Henry falling in love with Lucy and Lucy falling in love with Henry…over and over and over again. Lucy has amnesia and always forgets who Henry is the next day, but that doesn’t stop Henry from pursuing her. He is told to leave her alone by her family, but he doesn’t give up. He knows that Lucy is his true love and that they can live happily together, so he goes for it! It’s all about listening to your heart.


Eat, Pray, Love

Sometimes when it seems like you have nothing left or don’t know who you are anymore, it means it’s time to change your perspective on life. Liz Gilbert just got out of a boring marriage and doesn’t know where she’s heading in life, but she knows she wants to head somewhere. So she embarks on a trip all over the world to find love, both for herself and for someone else.


Monte Carlo

So, Grace Bennett doesn’t exactly get the trip of her dreams when she first gets to Paris, but with a little help from her friends, a royal look-a-like, and some chance-taking, Grace makes her trip a bit more fun! She was skeptical of the awesome opportunity that she was given, but then she let go and decided to take a chance on life, finding love in the process.


The Lizzie McGuire Movie

OK, at first it wasn’t really Lizzie’s decision to become an international pop sensation by taking her look-a-like’s place, but she ended up warming up to the idea! After Lizzie gets mistaken for the singing star and is given the opportunity to pretend to be her for a bit, she takes it. The result? One crazy adventure of a lifetime that she never would’ve had without taking that chance!



Jonathan and Sara meet and fall in love, passing in the night. They put their love in the hands of chance, hoping for the fateful opportunity to reunite with one another once again. Sometimes taking a chance is the hardest thing you will ever do, but if it is meant to be then it will definitely come.
