All Girls Aren’t Clumsy. They’re Just Written That Way By Lazy, Lazy Hollywood.
Hollywood, I love you. But Hollywood, you’re lazy. You constantly (and pretty much exclusively) use the "adorable and clumsy pretty girl" trope to humanize your leading ladies. Why? Surely there are other ways to show me these beautiful women are "human"?As a result of your laziness, we audiences are presented with cookie-cutter filmmaking, boring films, and almost NO female characters and female leads who are well-rounded and human because of their personalities. And no, clumsy is not a personality trait. And yeah, this video is funny! But I’d love it if there were never enough footage to make another again.
