Thanks for John for the idea. I’ve checked with the judges, and this can also include shopping montages.
Coyote Ugly; “Forgive My Father, for I have sinned.”
She’s All That; Um, a riot would break out if I didn’t include this. I actually haven’t seen this in a while, but I know a red dress and a descent down the stairs happens.
Aquamarine; They have to sneak off to Tampa for this one. “I love vintage!”
Strictly Ballroom; How Fran went from a pock-mark freak to a dancing beauty in under 20 minutes is beyond me.
She’s The Man; Cross dressing is quirky! Look at me! I’m wearing a mustache! But I’m a GIRL! How crazy!
A Cinderella Story; Hilary Duff has it in her contract that she needs to have a requisite costume change montage.
Miss Congeniality: Oh Sandra, you’re so sassy. You told him…WAIT! Watch out for those heels!
The Princess Diaries: It taught us that curly haired girls are FUGLY and straight-haired girls are princesses. I think that’s veiled anti-semitism.
Grease: Uh duh. Why does Sandy need to be the one who changes?
Pollyanna: I was obsessed with this scene when I was younger. I wanted a sailor outfit with a hat with a pom pom on it. Instead I got an outfit from the Pretty Plus department from Sears.
Goblet of Fire: Hermione in pink! I never thought I’d live to see the day!
Earth Girls Are Easy: makeovers are not just for the gals! A surfer dude exists under all that fur!
She’s Out of Control: A whole movie whose BASIS is a makeover. I watched this incessantly and scrutinized every outfit. And I am ashamed to say, copied many of them in high school.
Clueless: yes I know you were all waiting for this one. Makeovers give Cher a sense of order in a world of chaos. And a fat Brittany Murphy a scene that will go down in our memories forever.
