there's a thing where you adds 'in my ass' to the end of a movie title, so here are some…
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…
If you claim to dislike this movie, stop lying to yourself.
Mean Girls is fetch as fuck.
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.
Although I'm clearly nkt the target audience for this movie, I was genuinely surprised at how fun it was and its perfect 2000s feel good comedy style. The Plastics also are very similar to some of the girls (who I hate) in my own high school, so I found that whole thing pretty relatable, even if it's a little exagerated.
Weird early 00s references make it a little dated. Peak-Lohan. Imminently quotable.
I'm not sure I have the love for this that many people do, but I certainly have a lot of like for it.
Teen comedy that's kind of an update of Clueless crossed with Heathers (toned down), that's fun, breezy and charming. Enjoyable.

Task #30: A light-hearted comedy.
I've always heard good things about Mean Girls. "Oh my God, how have you not seen it!?" "Regina George is literally my spirit animal". And so on.
I have to say, I enjoyed it more than I expected to. After the widely-lauded Pitch Perfect - a film that targets the Mean Girls audience - failed to muster a single laugh from me, I didn't have high hopes.
There's another level to the writing here though. I don't think it's elevated to the sanctity at which its fervent fans regard it, but it's surprisingly snappy and quick-witted. More importantly, the mostly female cast execute the script really well.
Not divine, but totes rewatchable.
Prime Lindsay Lohan was unmatched, so fucking hot.
