Nerd Girl Role Model of the Month
Matilda. DUH. Homegirl is a bitch and she’s MAGICAL. She’s cooler than Harry Potter. She can read more books than us all! She knows how to do MATH. She glues her dad’s hat to his head!
I was disappointed in the girl that played her in the US movie version, she was cute but I was picturing the crazy haired girl as illustrated by mah lovah Quentin Blake.
However, Rhea and Danny as the parents are PERFECT. I’ll marry the guy that’ll agree to dress up as them with me for Halloween next year (I call DeVito’s duds!).
Anyways, she’s the nerd girl role model of the month because she’s smart, stands up for what she believes in and helps others, right? NO! She’s the nerd girl role model of the month because she can move shit with her MIND and you can’t. She also spent time in The Chokey. It was a box of SPIKES. Bad. Ass. Nerd. Girl.
Overall nerd girl score: 6 because she moves in with that weak ass Honey broad and loses her power once she starts getting challenged in school – LAME. Nerd girls are only supposed to get more powerful as they indulge their nerdiness.
[update – discussion in comments over whether she stops using power because she doesn’t want to or because she loses it. REGARDLESS of what the movie says, I’m pretty sure she loses it. Anyone have back up evidence?]
