19 Movies About Sisterhood Streaming Right Now That'll Make You Appreciate Your BFFs So Much
Listen, sisters. It's a hard time out there for women. Practically every week, a woman bravely exposes some male public figure for an alleged abuse of power and privilege. The past year has been difficult, but it's also made sisterhood more important than ever before. Hopefully you already have your own group of women to love and support in your life, but if you don't, know that you'll probably find your crew soon — everyone's looking for one, after all. Until then, you can take inspiration from these 19 movies about sisterhood, which are all streaming right now.
When you look at this list, you'll probably notice that almost all of them happen to be outrageously funny. Take Girls Trip, for example. The movie stars Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Tiffany Haddish as a group of friends who have grown apart. They decide to get together in New Orleans for the Essence Festival, and their adventures — or some might say misadventures — end up producing one of the funniest movies of the last few years.
Yet while plenty of these movies are truly LOL-worthy, they also all have a lot of heart. In fact, every one of these films proves that without girlfriends, life wouldn't just be more boring, but it would also be much more difficult. If you're feeling like you need to enjoy some cinematic sisterhood, make sure to check out each of these movies featuring great stories of female friendship.
It might be the ultimate sisterhood movie ever, or it's at least the funniest. You can stream it on HBO Go now.
