Top 10 Overused Female Scenarios In Movies or TVEeveeMudkip In every movie the girl falls for the guy in the end or she is damsled despite how awesome. These are the top 10 over used Female scenarios in movies and television.
The Top Ten
I still don't get why they make it so there's just one girl, and the rest are guys. Bugs me lots. - Turkeyasylum
In movies and T.V. you can have the classic all masculine guy trio that has only one or two female members. Even though the girls can be portrayed as highly intelligent and bad ass, sometimes they are undermined by their male colleauges. - EeveeMudkip
No matter what it seems that a movie that pairs a female and male lead into the plot the two characters have to enter a relationship by the end of the movie or T.V. series. Its not just romantic comedies that do this, this happens in a bunch of genres as well. - EeveeMudkipV 1 Comment
Like Sansa Stark in "Game of Thrones" or Princess Buttercup in "The Princess Bride" the female character has to be damsel at one point, every episode, or for the entire plot. This is annoying especially if it is clear that the girls are abel to save themselves. What really bites is even if the girl is a total bad ass she will get damsel at some point. Ouch. - EeveeMudkip
The movies that make women generally look dumb and helpless are bad influences on people. If anything, it's brutally demeaning. - PositronWildhawk
By far the most insulting stereotype. - keycha1n
You know it, keycha1n, especially when the damsel in distress acts defenseless and is girly.
Granted just because you look good and are popular does not necessarily mean you are a bad person in real life. However, especially in the high school genre, the popular girls are always portrayed as mean spirited or un-intelligent. The only positive side about this is that it teaches how unkindness destroys you in the end. A classic example of the mean girl scenario can be found in the 1989 film "The Heathers" or the T.V. series "Beverly Hills 90210". - EeveeMudkip
Commonly portrayed in chick flick genres, girls can be portrayed taking interest in very common trends. This includes a wide range of trends from shopping to talking about boys. This represents a lack of diversity in female characters portrayed in the media. - EeveeMudkipV 1 Comment
Especially common in the romantic comedy and chick flick genre, there is sometimes one point where a girl gets a make over to either please someone or better her self image. This teaches girls in real life that sometimes you should change your appearance to make your self feel better and please other people. In reality, movies and T.V. shows should be teaching girls to accept themselves rather than change themselves. - EeveeMudkip
Like in the 2011 film "Bridesmaids", the lead is seen having a sleezy boyfriend whom she stays with until the end of the movie. This is annoying since female characters tend to put up this jerk for a while when they could have left the bastard right then and there. - EeveeMudkip
Again, this is very common in a lot of T.V. and Movie. It goes as the guy is seeking ou the courtship of a girl whom he has a crush on. This shows that women are viewed as a prize rather than a human being. - EeveeMudkip
Especially with love triangles. The girl sometimes is forced to make a decision between two guys, or what is best for her. - EeveeMudkip
I don't get it, usually in films that are full of action and such that the girl haves a lot of sex. The woman I'm talking about is the tan brunette. Sure, some maybe but what about other girls?
