If only they were real

1. Cher from Clueless.
Cher is the apple of my eye and the voice of a self-assured, self-obsessed, whatever-ing generatation of mall rats who aren't quite as superficial as we seem.

2. Igby from Igby Goes Down.
Igby makes being a brat look oh so much fun. Why not be one, eh, when you're "drowning in assholes" as he aptly puts it.

3. Joan from Mad Men.
Joan is one sassy lady: intelligent, rambunctious and delicious. Despite her subordinate social position as a secretary in the 1960s, Joan almost always manages to put the boys in their place.

4. Lester from American Beauty.
In the film's opening scenes, Lester is painfully aware of his own shortcomings and sadly notes that after his morning wank in the shower, "it's all down hill from here". Watching Lester grow some balls through the course of the movie gets me everytime.

5. Romy and Michelle from Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion.

Most loveable friendship ever! Their impromptu dance number is a classic.
