Ah, the movie makeover. A gimmick that offers filmmakers a way to convey. . . stuff. Sometimes the outward makeover of a character in a movie indicates inner growth. Other times it's just to get the guy. Once in a while the makeover doesn't actually improve the character's life and she learns the hard way that changing her clothes and plucking the ol' eyebrows doesn't guarantee happiness.
I added the movie makeover scene to my list of rom-com cliches that are growing old, but I'm not convinced that they'll ever really end (see: The House Bunny). So, since there are so many of these makeovers, I figured I'd make a whole quiz out of 'em. Good luck!
