    These movies are racist and misogynists. Period.

    No matter if you are considered generally attractive or not I think the whole point is to take care of self both inside and out. It's important to feel better which makes you look better.

    DUFF characters are still a regular trope to this day in movies about teenagers (and praised by the critics) like Lady Bird and Booksmart

    i think people love makeover movies because everyone wants to believe they're secretly beautiful and desirable

    I got the exact opposite message from makeover movies that they are suggesting here. Like, if you wear glasses and don't pluck your eyebrows, you need to change, and if you're still plain after that, then God help you. I find the whole trope very toxic.
