They say teamwork makes the dream work. Nothing could be closer to the truth, especially when it comes to these women. Whether hunting ghosts, fighting villains, or orchestrating elaborate heists – the chemistry between these talented ladies is undeniable, and these movies wouldn’t be the same without them. Here are the movies featuring some of our favorite female teams on screen.
Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn
Nothing helps get you over a breakup better than your best friends. That and kicking some serious super-villain butt. After breaking up with the Joker, Harley Quinn gets a dangerously dynamic team together to take down the Black Mask: Black Canary, Huntress, and Renee Montoya are all in. But will they get to him before it’s too late?
Check out an exclusive behind the scenes clip from the movie and get a sneak peek at Harley Quinn’s Gotham:
The Kitchen is another gem from the DC Universe featuring the talented Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss. When their Irish mobster husbands get locked up, they step up and take over to continue operating their rackets in Hell’s Kitchen. And these powerful ladies don’t just keep up with the men in their lives – they do it better.
They ain’t afraid of no ghosts! Ghostbusters (2016) brings a fun twist to this Paul Feig remake with a charismatic all-female cast starring the hilarious Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon. And it’s up to them to suit up and arm up against the thousands of ghouls coming down to Times Square – but not without bringing some serious comic relief.
We can’t talk about female teams on-screen without bringing up the iconic Charlie’s Angels. Deemed the female James Bonds, these angels have class, style, and martial arts skills that would make Neo’s head turn. See the lengths they’ll go to protect their boss, Bosley, all while sporting heels and kicking serious villain butt.
Everybody knows the perfect heist can only be done with the perfect team. Ocean’s 8 is no exception. Debbie, played by Sandra Bullock, gathers a team of old friends and new ones to pull off her most elaborate heist yet at the glamorous Met Gala. These ladies use their unique skill sets to make the impossible happen, and boy do they have a fantastic time doing it.
