There are a handful of movies I adore and have watched over and over: Bring It On
, Legally Blonde
, Mean Girls
, and, most recently, Pitch Perfect
. Suggest more movies like this, please.

I have two weeks off at the end of the year, and I want to spend some of that time watching movies that'll make me happy. Here's what I'm looking for:
--comedies with women in the lead roles
--characters who are smarter and more capable than they initially seem, and who ultimately triumph by embracing their strengths (Elle Woods' knowledge of fashion and beauty winning the murder trial, or Cady joining the Mathletes)
--witty, eminently quotable dialogue
--films that stand up to multiple viewings (and I mean MULTIPLE; I've memorized huge swaths of all these movies)
Bonus points for singing, dancing, and/or incredible clothes. Also, it's probably not a coincidence that all five of these movies were written by women. And although a high school/college setting is another common factor in all of these, I wouldn't consider it essential.
Other potentially useful information: I've watched Easy A twice and could see it becoming a favorite. Bridesmaids was great but way too long; I loved The Heat, but wasn't a fan of the more serious crime-related plot elements. From what I've seen of Mean Girls 2 or the Bring It On sequels, they're terrible.
What other movies should I watch?
