Cool Videos: 75 Years of Manic Pixie Dream Girls
Who doesn't love a Manic Pixie Dreamgirl? She's like a unicorn. Film critic, Nathan Rabin first coined the term describing the stock character as, "that bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures." While I feel like there are women like that out there, they also have their own flaws-- hence the "unicorn" remark.
Flavorwire put together a supercut of 75 years of Manic Pixie Dreamgirls. Some of my most notable favorites are here. However, I would like more Jeff Daniels dancing in SOMETHING WILD. I would watch a gif of that for hours. Check out the video below and let us know which dreamgirls are missing.
