  8. 9. <ul><li>MPDG is a stock character in films. Film critic Nathan Rabin, who coined the term after seeing Kirsten Dunst in  Elizabethtown , describes the MPDG as &quot;that bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures.” </li></ul><ul><li>MPDGs are usually static characters who have eccentric personality quirks and are unabashedly girlish. They invariably serve as the romantic interest for a (often brooding or depressed) leading male protagonist.   </li></ul><ul><li>Rabin points to Katharine Hepburn's character in  Bringing Up Baby (1938) as one of the earliest examples of the archetype; later examples include Shirley MacLaine's character in  The Apartment  (1960).  Zooey Deschanel's roles in  (500) Days of Summer  and other films have also been typified MPDG. </li></ul><ul><li>Kate Winslet's role in  Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind  has been suggested as the anti-MPDG, realized in a remark to Jim Carrey's Joel character: &quot;Too many guys think I'm a concept, or I complete them, or I'm gonna make them alive. But I'm just a fucked-up girl who's lookin' for my own peace of mind; don't assign me yours.&quot; </li></ul>
