Nerd Gets Hot Girl
3654 7.1 7.21. 10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
Bianca and Cameron
This movie, based on "Taming of the Shrew" by William Shakespeare, proves that even back in Elizabethan England, things were like high school.
The story revolves around Bianca and her sister Kat. Bianca is pretty, popular, and catches all the boys attention. Her sister, however, can only be described as a "shrew." Bianca can't date until Kat does, so her suitors devise a plan. They find the only boy in the school who would stand a chance against Kat, Patrick, and pay him to ask her out.
A rather obvious choice for the first coupling on this list, Bianca and Cameron get together at the end. One point for the nerds.
918 6.8 6.72. Pretty in Pink (1986)
Duckie and A Blonde Girl (Kristy Swanson, not pictured.)
Duckie might not have gotten the girl he wanted, but he landed Buffy. That's good enough for me.
Andie and Duckie are best friends, both unpopular, but happy. Suddenly, Andie falls for a rich and sweet boy, Blane, whose friends reject Andie because she isn't of the upper class. Duckie, however, is secretly in love with Andie but plays it off as a joke.

Allie and Noah
Allie is a rich, well-off girl who meets Noah, a poor country boy. They spend a summer together, but then part ways when Allie goes off to college. Noah writes letter after letter, but she never gets them, and he moves on. Eventually, Allie gets engaged but sees his name in the newspaper one day. She pays him a visit, and realizes she is still in love with him. Allie must now choose between her fiance and Noah.
4101 7.3 7.77. Moulin Rouge! (2001)
6372 7.7 8.28. V for Vendetta (2005)
Evey and V
You can't get hotter than Natalie Portman and believe me, V is one of the nerdiest people in movie history. He enjoys speaking in iambic pentameter, cooking, fencing, banned books, learning, art, history, art history, and anything you could ever write a book report on.

Jack and Rose
Poor artist meets rich redhead... on a boat (See: I'm on a Boat)
It's about a sinking ship. Hopefully, everyone knew that.
2497 7.7 8.113. Star Trek (2009)
5219 8 8.714. Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)
Leia and Luke
Before all the Star Wars geeks get their panties in a bunch, I must say that I will only speak in the instances before they find out it's twincest.
Confused why they're on this list? May I remind you Luke is a moisture farmer before he becomes a Jedi. That, by itself, is the most nerdy thing I have ever heard. Leia, on the other hand, is a princess. Of a planet.
Of course, she does marry Hans Solo later...
Give me a few days to consider the validity of this nomination.
