Roll Bounce (2005)
Regulation hottie Naomi winds up with Xavier instead of his friend Tori, but to be fair, he and Tori were only friends anyway. Notable in that, usually, her character would have been set up as a potential love interest/rival to the popular chick character.

In the movies and television, it seems any girl who likes wearing pink and cares more about her appearance will never win, or at the very least, will get a come-uppance of some sort, whereas the tomboyish/less conventionally girly character is always the winner. It has been done so much, sometimes I find myself rooting for that type of girl, specifically because she has been so relegated to the loser role.

As always, suggestions welcome!

I haven't seen some of these but I love this list. girly girls get an absolutely DISGUSTING amount of hatred, largely in thanks to idiotic Hollywood's forceful stereotyping of feminine ladies being sluts, retarded, drama queens, and every single bad thing you can think of. how horribly sexist is that? tomboys are considered queens normally- intelligent, sexy (even though REAL tomboys look like Ellen DeGeneres, not Portia DeRossi), strong, capable, independant, talented, tough, sweet (typically just hidden under the tough exterior), natural beauties, "feminist"... everything good, basically. It's so hideously unfair and sexist. You have to act like a man in all the worst ways but look like a girl in all the best ways to be considered worthy of respect.
