17 Reasons Why The Lizzie McGuire Movie Is The Greatest Movie Of Our Generation

This movie is what dreams are made of, even 14 years later.

Lizzie's Clothes

For those of us that weren't old enough to appreciate Carrie Bradshaw yet, Lizzie McGuire was our style icon. The Lizzie McGuire Movie graced us with some of her most sophisticated looks yet, from the newsboy-inspired hat she paired with a round brush accessory to her stripes on stripes on straight hair she rocked for riding on the back of a Vespa, Roman Holiday-style.

The Hair

This hairstyle is the kind that an impressionable nine-year-old (me) might see and try to do herself and it ends up being a miserable failure.

The Fashion

Before Lady Gaga, Lizzie McGuire was dressing up like a literal igloo and a modern Marie Antoinette whose skirt apparently works like window blinds.

Lizzie is simultaneously awkward and #goals

She might have had the worst junior high graduation speech ever, and she may have been an outfit repeater, but she gave us all hope. We all felt uncomfortable in our own skin but we could dream of spending two weeks without our parents in Rome and having our own bathroom before we were even in high school.

Also she totally wasn't embarrassed to show emotion and hug her mom in public, which was a big deal to me.

Miss Ungermeyer

When I saw this movie in 2003, she was the WORST. But despite being a little overly strict, she was a total badass! Plus, she knew Paolo was bad from the start.

Gordo

Gordo is perfect because he never makes Lizzie feel bad for not being in love with him or "friendzoning him." When she tells him to make a wish in the Trevi Fountain? He says, "I'm in Rome with my best friend. I'm good."

Plus, he calls her out on her I'm-acting-like-a-Disney-princess-and-falling-in-love-after-one-minute attitude!

And he covers for her the entire time with stupid Paolo. Even to the point where Miss Ungermeyer sends him home. And he doesn't make Lizzie feel guilty once!

Paolo (also known as Lucifer)

Probably the most evil Disney villain since Maleficent

Remember when he gathered the poor, defenseless children at the Fountain? AND FORCED THEM TO MAKE WISHES?

More like PAID them, Paolo. OR THREATENED THEM.

The movie is full of so many strong women.

Lots of girls supporting girls

From Isabella and Lizzie teaming up to take down Paolo (aka SATAN) to Kate climbing down from her pedestal to help Lizzie, this movie is full of girl power

P.S. Look at Sergei's face when stupid Paolo says this to Lizzie

Utter disappointment.

Actually, everything about Sergei

Including his precious relationship with Miss Ungermeyer
