Earlier this week, a few of my friends and I decided to take a trip down memory lane and watch Ella Enchanted: a classic Anne Hathaway movie. Feeling inspired (aka the re-emergence of my inner Hathaway fangirl), I decided to come up with my own definitive ranking of Hathaway films. Please enjoy this pointless list. Disclaimer: this is 100% subjective and based on nothing other than my opinions and general enjoyment. Film critics beware.
While this one is fun, I can't say it ranks pretty high for Hathaway. Fun songs, beautiful artistry, but not one of her best. Next.
9. The Intern
I'd be lying if I said this one didn't make me tear up, but the plotline is kinda stale and the characterization a little forced.Would still watch again though.
8. Love & Other Drugs
Listen, I'm a sucker for a nice love story. This does rom-com and does it fairly well (and def cried for this one, too. Plz give my tear ducts a REST, Anne #weak).
7. The Dark Knight Rises
Never would have pegged Hathaway for a superhero but... it works? Well? Big fan.
I. Love. Space. That's all. #steministhathaway? Get it trending ladies.
5. Ella Enchanted
No matter how many times I watch this one, I laugh at the exact same spots. You don't realize you need a fairytale remix/cover of Don't Go Breaking my Heart until you have it, folks.
4. The Princess Diaries 2
CLAIM YOUR CROWN, GIRL. Ugh, I love this series. I love Julie Andrews. I love Mia Thermopolis.
3. Les Miserables
This is a beautiful movie and role, and Hathaway's commitment to it was incredible. Live singing AND a dramatic haircut on camera? Damn girl. No wonder you got that Oscar.
2. The Devil Wears Prada
Is this even a surprise? I'm convinced it's impossible to dislike this movie. Meryl+Hathaway=a match made in heaven.
1. The Princess Diaries
Ok, again, not a surprise –– the second one is awesome, but this is the ORIGINAL. I could watch this movie on a loop for the rest of my life. A definite childhood favorite –– Mia Thermopolis is the awkward, nerdy hero every pre-pubescent girl needed (and every college girl). Genovia forever.
And fin: a completely subjective list that doesn't really accomplish anything other than affirm my love of Anne Hathaway. There you have it, folks.
