Legally Blonde: Elle Woods has just as much fun as a law expert as she does as president of her sorority. What, like it's hard?
Terminator: If battling cyborg assassins give you shiny hair, biceps and a killer all-black wardrobe, sign us up.
The Devil Wears Prada: Bangs are a risky play, but Emily 2.0 (ok fine, Andy) pulls them off with aplomb.
The Breakfast Club: So... are we not going to admit that Allison was way ahead of the game with her perfectly smudged smoky liner? No? Okay.
Clueless: A good dye job changes all — including, uh, your personality, it seems. "You’re just a virgin who can’t drive" remains the most cutting insult of all time. Way harsh, Tai.
She’s All That: This movie practically invented the classic girl-removes-glasses-and-is-suddenly-beautiful trope. Tsk.
Mean Girls: Cady Heron proves that all the blush and gloss in the world don't mean anything if you become so fake you're nicknamed Plastic.
Grease: The most unrealistic thing about this movie is how Sandy didn’t set her hair aflame when she lit up. That gravity-defying ‘do should be in a museum.
Miss Congeniality: It's amazing how much 15 hours of sleep, an anti-frizz spray, and a team of beauty experts can do for you.
The Princess Diaries: Brow maintenance, y’all. We can’t stress how important it is.
Pretty Woman:The movie did give us some pretty warped ideas on love and female empowerment? That perfectly mussed bed-head and timeless red lip (almost) made up for it.
Crazy, Stupid, Love: A haircut (and a non-velcro wallet) is a confidence-booster.
House Bunny: Classic makeover montage, but multiplied by seven — and intercut with hilarious commentary by Anna Faris. No modern-day masterpiece is going to top “the eyes are the nipples of the face”, alright?
Jawbreaker: Has there even been a more valid reason for a makeover than doing it to cover up for a murder? Probably not.
13 Going On 30: The moral of the story is never throw any of your makeup away because you never know when jelly glosses and frosted shadow are going to come back in trend. Joke.
Captain America: Ok, but how do his pants still fit after he’s gone up five sizes? The plot thickens.
Working Girl: "If you want to be taken seriously, you need to have serious hair." We’re inclined to agree if you are rocking a mullet.
