    Like 'Girls,' 'The Mindy Project' Offers a Challenge to the Typical Leading Lady

    Like Lena Dunham, Mindy Kaling is the kind of actress you used to see unjustly relegated to the role of the sidekick, the funny best friend. She doesn't look like the type of leading lady common to the romantic comedies with which her character is so enamored.

    There’s a special sort of Hell where films like “The Giant Mechanical Man” play, with the same ideas and tropes repeated around the clock, with the mistaken assumption that they’re endearing or, even worse, adorable.
