“The Manic Pixie Dream Girl” was coined by film critic Nathan Rabin to describe a common cinematic character used to help the gloomy/heartbroken/up-tight male lead to arrive at his catharsis. Done with her job, she usually glides (dreamily) off into the sunset with (or without) the hero.

Love her or hate her she’s here to stay.

The Natural Disastronauts made this hilarious skit to illustrate the dark side of the MPDG.

Enjoy! (I mean, dance to the music in your heart and really experience the beauty and wonder of every moment!)
