Funfact: quite unintentionally, all five of today’s makeover montages are from movies made in the 1990’s.
Dumb & Dumber
A parody of Julia Roberts’ classic makeover scene in Pretty Woman, Harry and Lloyd get all gussied up for the big charity event where they’ll spend an enchanted evening acting like total fuckwads.
I’m one of those weird girls who loathes most chick flicks, but Clueless is a rare exception (shh! don’t tell anyone). It came out during the height of Alicia Silverstone’s popularity, whom I’ll admit to having a huge girlcrush on in the ’90s when she was doing super sexy things like this and this. It also stars an adorable Brittany Murphy (who sadly passed away in 2009) as Tai, the fashion victim in this obligatory makeover clip.

Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead
Admit it: you had a crush on Christina Applegate and you love this movie.

To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar
A movie that somehow manages to make Patrick Swayze and Wesley Snipes (and John Leguizamo) in drag tolerable for 109 minutes.

What the hell is Movie Montage Monday?
Every Monday I come up with a new theme and post a series of related movie montages. There’s no real reason for it, I just really like montages. Also it’s kind of a challenge to myself to see how long I can keep it going. I’m bound to run out of themes eventually, right?
