Welcome to girl world.
Cady Heron is a hit with The Plastics, the A-list girl clique at her new school, until she makes the mistake of falling for Aaron Samuels, the ex-boyfriend of alpha Plastic Regina George.
Let me tell you something about Mean Girls. I thought it would be crap. I know, right? It's so embarrassing. I don't even... Whatever. So then about about eight months ago, I saw the ratings for it and so I started the movie with the assumption that it would be totally awful but then I started howling with laughter, and my other movies were like, weirdly jealous of it. Like, if I would skip past them to watch Mean Girls, they'd be like, "Why didn't you watch me?" And I'd be like, "Why are you so obsessed with me?" So then, for my birthday party, which was a marathon of my favourite comedies, I was like, "other movies, I can't…
Unlike the work of the majority of hacks who couldn't create a proper social satire if their life depended on it, Mark Waters is a masterful filmmaker with a true bite for commentary, elegantly combining a pop narrative with timeless humor to create a social critique that would make Bunuel brush.
Armed with Lindsay Lohan, the Anna Karina to Waters' Godard, Waters traverses the American high school landscape, like a tiger on the prowl, effectively critiquing all the "cliques" one might find in such a traditional setting. The titular Mean Girls (amusingly named "The Plastics") may be the center target of Waters gaze, but no one in this film is perfect. Deep down, everyone is a "Mean Girl".
You smell like a baby prostitute.
It seems like a different world in an alternate Universe. Lindsay Lohan was kinda cute, didn't look like she was on crack and people thought she had a promising film career ahead of her. To be fair, even though she's great in the part and the rest of the cast as well, the real reason this film is so good has less to do with them or even director Mark Waters and everything to do with the script written by Tina Fey.
Fey's story here, loosely based on the self-help book Queen Bees and Wannabes, manages to be a bit raunchy with rapid fire jokes and one-liners all the while having an…
Who doesn't love this classic?
I don't care if it's a guilty pleasure, it's funny and twisted in equal measure. Plus, the moment when the principal takes out the baseball bat is one of the most epic moments in the history of high school comedies.
Also, Mean Girls is so quotable you could have a ten minute conversation just with lines from the film.
No, I'm not kidding. This is something else. Check it out now. One of my favorite comedies in general, Mean Girls is so fetch.
Mean Girls is everything I did not expect: a biting social commentary with hilariously accurate caricatures and situations, and, for once, a positive manner of explaining the lives of teenage girls. It may be, as Jake put it, a modern masterpiece, lbr, because it has that special something that helps its transcend the trappings of its time. The only thing about it that has aged is the outfits.
I wish I’d watched Mean Girls in tenth grade. Maybe I wouldn’t have hated everybody so much, or cracked mean jokes among friends because I knew I’d get laughs. Maybe I wouldn’t have always hesitated to be enthusiastic about my interests just in case everybody thought I was weird for, you know,…
"I can fit my whole fist in my mouth. Wanna see? I'm kinda psychic. I have a fifth sense. It's like I have ESPN or something. My breast can always tell when it's going to rain" - Karen
It's funny that I have been saying that ESPN quote for years, but never knew what it was from. Who would of thought that the director who brought us such classics like "Ghost of Girlfriends Past" or "Just Like Heaven" would create such a wonderful social satire like Mean Girls. Mean Girls is funny enough on its own, but the satire captures high school bitches and cliques just all to well. It is literally best satire on High School that exists, and…
They were pretty mean.
Masterfully written by the exceptional Tina Fey, Mean Girls is an enduring, highly quotable classic that is as relevant ten years on as it was at the time.
Mais incisivo que "As Patricinhas de Beverly Hills" e menos profundo que "Eleição", o filme resiste no tempo por seus próprios méritos: a graça de Lindsay Lonhan (que desperdício de talento!), a perfídia de Rachel McAdams, e a acidez do roteiro de Tina Fey. Bem legal!
A teen chick flick that is clever, funny and breaks away from standard fare for the genre even if most of the characters are just as unlikable as the rest of the genre. The way high school is portrayed as a survival of the fittest and a battlefield of sorts helps keep the film exciting and innovative. The film also has many quotable lines.
The cast work well in their roles (with a pre-fallout Lindsey Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert and Amanda Seyfried among others) with audiences wanting to like Lohan still and McAdams making a decent teen flick villain with most of the rest of the cast stuck someone between the two.
My Take: A chick flick I wouldn't mine viewing again. It's so fetch.
It's a movie that was dying for a rewatch. Mean girls is smart, hilarious, and surprisingly a very accurate view on modern day high school. Thing slow down a little bit towards the latter half of the movie but it never really bothered me. Overall its quite enjoyable with fantastic performance and rememberable characters. It's a movie that will be quote and remember for years and years to come. Also watching it a second time, you'll notice all of the foreshadowing that happens in the beginning
A riguardarlo dieci anni dopo, fa impressione rendersi conto di quanto sia un bigino di tutto quel che arriverà poi in 30 Rock.
Un po' è invecchiato, ma rimane delizioso e pieno di gente fantastica.
Great job by Tina Fey.
Una película que une.
A todo el mundo le gusta, por unas razones u otras, 'Chicas malas'. Da igual el contexto de la situación, da igual las diferencias sociales o culturales, no importa el día ni la hora. Siempre viene bien verla de nuevo.
I actually really like this movie... What's wrong with me?
