13 Movies That Prove the Underdog Wins when Geeks ๐Ÿค“ Get Makeovers ๐Ÿ’‹ ...

Makeover movies are always fun even if they are predictable. You can always trust Hollywood to churn out movies where a socially awkward and unhappy girl overcomes her own social ineptitude, gains popularity, fortune (monetary and social) and a hunky guy, with an all-empowering makeover.

Makeover movies usually have geeky girls brimming with intelligence, matched with a sardonic attitude or a horrible dress-sense, who are displayed as โ€˜outsiderโ€™ characters. The makeover movie usually ends with their problems solved through sleeker hair, fashionable clothes and a lot of makeup, thus delivering a story arc that promotes having โ€˜the best of both worldsโ€™. Unfortunately, rarely does Hollywood ever show that having brains or a good personality is enough to be accepted in society. Check out these 13 Movies Where the Geeky Girl Gets a Makeover to see what Iโ€™m talking about.

1. The Princess Diaries

(Your reaction) Thank you!

A popular and well-known makeover movie that stars Anne Hathaway as Mia Thermopolis: a frizzy-haired, snorting and rather geeky-looking teenager who lives with her mum and has a cat. Oh, and who discovers she is a princess of the made-up country Genovia. Of course, a girl with huge glasses and even huger hair canโ€™t be the face of Royalty, and thus she begins her makeover into a real princess: with straightened hair, contact lenses and jewels.
