    I've watched multiple videos about this trope and I didn't really understand it, this video was really helpful, also, the editing is so cool! I think you should do more video essays, they're really good and I would love to hear your point of view based on all the movies and tv you've watched.

    Explain a few things to me: -how did Joe move unconscious Beck to the cage without being seen or anything? -how did Joe move Benji's body without being seen? (He did in a day light, same with Beck). These are a big logical errors.

    I knew a girl similar to idea of a MPDG, but... she was somehow more "unrealistic" than an actual trope. Never in my life have I met someone so unbelievably happy and friendly and uplifting. Not at all selfish. She wanted everyone she knew to get along, wanted to make every friend she possibly could and god she would try her best to make you smile. As a kid, I never really took the time to appreciate her energy. There are so few people I run into in life that have even half of her optimism. Yeah, it was kind of annoying at times, but forgivable. I was the one to move away. And my constant self doubt told me not to keep in touch, because I was afraid to have good friends, and ruin them with my issues.. Which was so stupid. Because this year, she died, and because of the pandemic I couldn't even say goodbye. I can't visit her, because she wasn't buried. Really regret never telling her how awesome she was, and as an adult, I think I have a soft spot for this trope because it reminds of her. Even if Hollywood has a tendency to romanticize things they probably shouldn't, I wanna say in defense of the trope, if you ever get the chance to meet someone like a MPDG, treasure it. Simply because we're living in a very strange time, and that kind of positive bubbly energy is hard to come by. Even if it doesn't last forever, appreciate those kinds of people for who they are.

    The only "long term Manic Pixie Dream Girl" I recall was "Dharma and Greg". You forgot the really odd sub-trope that was big in the '90s, which was "the Manic Pixie Dream Girl who is dying", where they meet her, fall in love with her, and then she asks him to leave her, so the fantasy isn't destroyed, when she dies in front of him (usually from cancer).

    I don't think it's a problem when the girl helps the boy becoming better, or otherwise (in "All the Bright Places") since I think it's the streagh of femininity in it's full form. the "sassy stoic man-but girl" thrope (Latnis, Rey, Salina sardotian) doesn't scream "feminine power" as much as the sweet girl who fix the boy, since one of the most beating by our media but lovable and importent feminine charastaristics is commpassion and emotional intelegence. by showing woman have the "power" to fix others you celebrate woman's streangh, woman are saving life everyday with this "superpower" as commpationet mom's or theacher, I can't count the numaber of times that I heard people that considered suiside say they would never do that no matter how bad things are beacuse they love their mom so much and they can never leave her alone in this world, woman do have the "power" to fix others, just like man can save others with brute force as firefighter and such, woman have the superpower of saving us from ourselves and our dark thoughts with their EMOTIONAL streangh (which is, bigger than that of a man generally speaking) this is why we balance each other so well (and why you can also find in LGBTQ couples this but in a smaller scale and more evenly set) I think one of the worst problems in the west- suiside, is only the effect of sociaty who pressures woman to be something they aren't, sociaty that tells woman they need "man's streangh" only- to be strong, and shows woman's streangh as "silly" and "childish" or "less importent" which IS WRONG! the rising in suiside is exactly beacuse sociaty tries to colour feminine streangh as something WEAK, beacuse who would help, with their emotional streagh to the people who needs it without woman? so if something, than the "girl fix boy, than boy fix girl" is my favorite thrope, not only beacuse it shows off FEMININE streangh but also beacuse of the equal footing of the two characters.

    I stg I watched this all the time as a kid and JUST rewatched it on Prime and it was completely different. My boyfriend and I were like, “Oh shit this is the part where Rufus starts seizing out!!!” but then he ran out of the room and actually died later. We were both really confused because we both remembered scenes happening differently. Maybe the aired version was different than the one on Prime

  • Pou Sha

    I actually really enjoyed season 2. As someone suffering from an eating disorder, I feel like they show actually provides a very well rounded representation of disordered eating habits and imposes profound emphasis on how it was never the boy which was the problem but what the traumas and emotions one associates with food. You almost never see binge eating disorder being considered a valid eating disorder. Her not feeling like she deserve recovery was also something that I could relate with a lot because all you do it blame your body and your lack of self control for all your problems when in reality you need therapy to dig into your past to fix your food problems.

  • jakniezabicsb eh
    jakniezabicsb eh 2 hours ago

    Adding "500 days of summer" as an example here is so wrong. It would be the opposite of what you're talking about, if anything. Plus the girls in those movies aren't real and they don't act how they want, they act how men wrote them, all those sad boys don't see the real woman, they they're imagination of the perfect girl, that could change them but it's not their job to do that. I think that expecting for someone to do impossible and be how you wish is far worse than just being your confident self.

    I hâte to think of this, but this made me think of Harden from "After": spontaneous, impulsive, does what he wants and brushes Tessa off to the side if she gets mad about it. He is a Sad Boy, but he's also everything Tessa wants to be and is new and mysterious, like Edward in "Twilight." I'm not sure if this is just an interesting realization that the story fulfills both MPDG and MPIB roles or if it's just to show how one-dimensional and overly cliched both of these characters are.

    I mean people like the fantasy because you can control it and don't have to live with it. You can put it down if it gets boring or make it as unrealistic as you want. But yeah I've often thought how some of the common tropes would be super unpleasant (and sometimes outright abusive) in real life! It's fun to dissect the dynamics of relationship tropes that we love to watch but hate to live haha.
