A Manic Pixie Dream Girl or MPDG, is a term coined by film critic Nathan Rabin after seeing Elizabethtown. It refers to "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." A pretty, outgoing, whacky female romantic lead whose sole purpose is to help broody male characters lighten up and enjoy their lives.
In Garden State, Natalie Portman was a Manic Pixie Dream Girl.

A female character who's entire character is based around a guy's shallow definition of a "perfect girl", a nerd's wet dream girlfriend. She plays all the games he plays, likes everything he likes, and probably has a pixie cut or some other radical hairstyle. She probably has a "perfect body" but hides it under baggy clothes, and wears nothing but nerdy video game centric t shirts or ridiculously over the top outfits that are practically costumes.
Guy: I'm not like other guys who are shallow and just want a blonde bimbo, I want a girl who plays video games and embraces life like me. She's beautiful but doesn't know it, and she loves nerdy stuff!
