We’ve all seen this played out in the opposite direction. He’s a nerd, or has no social skills, or he’s not very attractive, etc. He has feelings for a woman who is gorgeous and way out of his league, and it turns out she is charmed by him and they get together. Albert and Allegra in Hitch, Colin and (and possibly Sam and Joanna) in Love Actually, Arthur and Tricia in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Bleeker and Juno in Juno, the entire plot of The 40-Year-Old Virgin…I could go on, and TVTropes does.
Is there any movie with the inverse of this cliché? A friend offered My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which is a positive step forward, but as a dorky girl who doesn’t look quite like a supermodel, I would despair if there is only one such movie.
