"The Dark Secret Behind Quirky Romantic Comedies"

There have been many debates lately about the Manic Pixie Dream Girl stereotype and whether or not Zooey Deschanel is too twee. I admit that some of the blogs I follow can occasionally give off this kind of vibe, and I'm sure I do it too sometimes. I think it's good to laugh about it every now and then, though..


  1. LOL I love this video and especially the mixtape. Oh dear, how that is the way to woo me.
    I am on the fence about the pixie girls. I did enjoy however, that in the 2nd last episode (#11) of Zooey's show New Girl, she gets in an argument with a non-pixie woman who is a lawyer - and says something along the lines of "just because I like cupcakes and girlie things doesn't mean that I'm not smart, interesting and strong."
    I really paraphrase because I can't remember, but it was a nice point.
