Conservative Trope Examples
- Popular jock and class president Zack (Freddie Prinze Jr.) recruits his sister to give Laney (Rachael Leigh Cook) a makeover before they go to a party. His sister tells Laney she has an idea how to make her look gorgeous, but cautions "you'll really have to trust me." After working her magic behind the scenes his sister comes downstairs to present Laney, who looks utterly transformed after letting her hair down, taking off her glasses, putting on a form-fitting red dress, and donning red heels. Zack is momentarily speechless before having to spring into action to save Laney from falling after she slips on the final stair.Other Tropes: Women Depicted as Dependent on Men
