Top 10 Movies Dorks Love

We all root for the underdogs in movies. Dorks may be generally unappreciated in our society for many reasons, but in movies, they can be the heroes that save the day. Dorks should never frown for being de facto outcasts as dorky characters prove to be a mainstay in cinema, offering plenty of ways to help the rest of the world relate better to their real awesomeness.

Another “dork” movie is going to be released this month: The Secret Lives of Dorks. In The Secret Lives of Dorks, Payton (Gaelan Connell) is a pathetic dork, a comic book geek whose high school career is one hopeless faux pas after another. Yet he’s a dreamer and madly in love with the head cheerleader Carrie (Riley Voelkel), who he is determined to win over. But she is wise to his desperate advances, so to get off his radar she creates a plan to push him into the arms of a dorkette at the school, Samantha (Vanessa Marano).

So, before you get to see the love and adventure of Payton, we listed down the 10 of the best movies every dork has to watch. Well, basically this will prepare you what to expect from a dork movie.
