Makeover Movie Trivia

Do You Know Your Movie Makeovers?

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!

8/9 but I've never seen Can't Buy Me Love, so it was a guess. And I LOVE She's Out of Control. You wouldn't believe how many times I watched that movie as a kid, and how excited I was to find it on dvd. It was right up there with the day that Teen Witch came out on dvd. :lol:

7/9! I actually like these movies, just not the part about changing yourself to make someone like you. The message at the end of Grease is just wrong. EkaterinaBallerina - I know, wouldn't that be weird if Gary Oldman was in Michael Caine's role? I almost cracked up when I saw he was one of the options on the quiz.

I can't believe I missed the She's Out of Control question! Upon further reflection, I totally KNEW that one. DAMMIT!

suziryder the cigarette thing sort of bothered me but I think they used it to show that Sandy hadn't really changed and she was just acting tough because she had to be told how to hold and and what to do with it when she wanted to put it out

8/9 but I coul dhave sworn it was $1500 dollars in Can't buy me love isn't that how much the telescope cost? Totally not the one I thought I got wrong. I love me some movie makeovers

got the last 2 wrong, didn't see either movie so I guessed.

Hm. That was supposed to say "I heart Sabrina (the Audrey Hepburn version)."
suziryder suziryder 8 years
Woah, 100%?! I was totes guessing on the last few. The ending of Grease always bothered me - it IS a weird message to be sending. And I <3 Sabrina (the Audrey Hepburn one).

I just burst out laughing when I read that Gary Oldman was one of the options for the movie makeover guru in Miss Congeniality. Genius choice. That kinda made my day. God, can you imagine Sirius Black/Inspector Gordon giving Sandra Bullock a makeover?!?
