What are the most commonly used stereotypes of women in teen comedies?
Interesting question. One thing I want to point out to you about movies is how short they really are. Character development can take some time. With a book the author has time to explain the past of their character and their little quirks. With a movie, it’s different. You take a gothic looking girl and stick her in a high school, everyone who sees the movie knows she is misunderstood, has few friends, and goes against the grain. They don’t have the TIME, so stock stereotypes become an important part of building a cast. Just look at Mean Girls for some great examples.
