The makeover montage is a movie trope that’s seen time and time again. The concept is simple: a shy, unstylish character is swiftly made over, often by the so-called popular crowd. Once the transformation is complete, the character is revealed not only with a whole new look, but with an entirely new confidence as well. While its usually all in good fun, some viewers find these makeovers to be less-than-empowering. Makeovers like those of Tai in Clueless or Allison Reynolds in The Breakfast Club have been criticized for being superficial and ridding them of their unique personality traits. Luckily, more often than not, characters who are drastically made-over come to find confidence in their original selves by the time the credits roll. Whether films choose to embrace the trope unabashedly or poke fun at its superficiality, it’s undeniable that the makeover montage has proven to be a staple of teen movies. Here, CR rounds up the top picks for the most hilarious, shocking, and inspiring transformations in film.
