Characters: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson

The characters from Confessions of Georgia Nicolson

Georgia Nicolson

  • Adaptational Heroism: Georgia's cynicism and Bratty Teenage Daughter tendencies are very much toned down in the movie, and she's a much more accepting and normal girl than her book counterpart (not nearly as funny though). It's very evident in her relationship with her parents: in the film she's close to them, while in the books she's repulsed by both, especially her father.
  • Anti-Role Model: Even readers in the book's age demographic have found her a complete brat (a lovable brat, but still a brat).
  • Attention Whore: To a ridiculous extent and Played for Laughs. She acts like this at school and at home.
  • Book Dumb: Not an excellent student, but she's quite good with foreign languages in and PE (tennis, hockey)
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: And a rather unsympathetic one, though it's all Played for Laughs.
  • Break the Haughty: A few times. She has more love problems than any of the other characters.
  • Brilliant but Lazy: Georgia hates school and homework (really, she only cares about appearance, makeup, dating, boys etc.) but she is actually quite bright when she's willing to put in the work.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: She's hilariously silly, like pretty much everyone else in the books.
  • Deadpan Snarker: In spades. The books should be renamed "Georgia Nicolson's snarky confessions". She's the epitome of the First-Person Smartass narrator, and it's the main source of humor of the books. Sadly this trait is almost completely absent in the movie.
  • Drama Queen: The typical selfish Wangsty overdramatic Bratty Teenage Daughter.
  • Dude Magnet: Robbie, Masimo, Dave the Laugh, Peter Dyer, Mark "Big Gob", her cousin James, her younger neighbor Oscar, the French guy who offers her a rose during a field trip...In short, she basically attracts every guy except the ones who are already paired with her friends.
  • First-Person Smartass: Georgia as the narrator.
  • Friend with Benefits: With Dave, but kiss only. While she's still interested in/dating Robbie and/or Masimo.
  • Fun with Foreign Languages: Georgia speaks almost-fluent French, and she takes German.
  • Gratuitous French: And, less frequently, Gratuitous German. She just love to have Fun with Foreign Languages.
  • High School Hustler: She is a rare female example, with her schemes at school and rebellious attitude towards teachers and authority figures.
  • Hollywood Dateless: Played straight in the first two books, then it kinda becomes the parody of this trope, with Georgia still complaining about her love life, despite having plenty of boys and love interests.
  • Hormone-Addled Teenager: Just like all her friends, she spends much time lusting after cute boys.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Again, all the time. When Georgia is annoyed by someone else's flaws, she is often guilty of the same things too. She seems aware of it though, and even makes jokes about it.
  • It's All About Me: Georgia seems to care about three things: herself, her looks and cute boys.
  • Jerkass: She's very rude and mean in general, and her treatment of her parents and Jas (her best friend) can be downright cruel at tims.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She can be nice when she wants to be. As Jerkass-ish as she can get, Georgia's Pet the Dog moments make you realize that she really is an okay girl.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Despite her attitude and shallowness, she's really not than bad. Even if she usually looks down on her unpopular schoolmate Pamela Green, Georgia defends her from the bullies Bummer Twins, and when they are finally expelled, it is because she (along with her friends) told the school authorities that they were the shoplifters instead of P. Green who they had initially framed.
  • Love Makes You Dumb: Often she acts this way when around a boy. See her interactions with Robbie.
  • Malaproper: Georgia has... her own unique approach with the English language.
  • Never My Fault: "Why does the finger of shame always point towards me?"
  • The Nicknamer: She gives nicknames to almost everyone.
  • No Sympathy: For most people around her. Occasionaly she gets Pet the Dog moments.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: She may act like a shallow, silly Cloudcuckoolander and sometimes she makes a fool of herself, but she's obviously not stupid.
  • The Prankster: She's the queen of childish pranks. Just ask her teachers.
  • Single Girl Seeks Most Popular Guy: Robbie and Masimo. She is not content with a normal boy. No, she must have the lead singer of the hottest local band.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Depending on the situations and Rule of Funny. At times she acts ridiculously overconfident, other times she goes into a state of self-deprecating humor.
  • The Snark Knight: She has an insult or a sarcastic remark for almost everyone (sometimes even herself) and everything in any situation.
  • Tsundere: Type A, surprisingly not to her boyfriends, but to her friend Jas (in a strange kind of Vitriolic Best Buds and Les Yay way).
  • Unreliable Narrator: The book is entirely from Georgia's point of view, so a lot of things she says are rather... questionable.
  • Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist: Very much so. She's loved by fans for being humorous, sarcastic, lovable and entertaining. She also happens to be vain, selfish, shallow, idiotic, whiny, petty, and rude.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Jas. They insult each other a lot and fight in almost every book...they are still best friends.

Jas

  • It's All About Me: Jas is overall a good, albeit annoying friend but she has her selfish moments.

Rosie Mees

  • Cloudcuckoolander: Easily one of the nuttiest characters in the books, along with her boyfriend Sven.

Ellen

  • The Ditz: She was flanderized into this.

Jools

  • Flat Character: Still one of Georgia's best friends, present in every book.

Mr. Bob Nicolson a.k.a. Vati

  • No Sense of Humor: According to Georgia, at least. Then again, she expects him to laugh at her insults to him, so this is arguable.

Libby

Wet Lindsay

  • The Rival: Georgia's rival for the affections of Robbie and Masimo.
