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.
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,…
Mean Girls is funny, has a young and brilliant cast and plays very well with all stereotypes that we all face in highschool.
Yeah I watched it again a day later. Still good.
I'd like to say this is a guilty pleasure but it's just too funny to say I'm really guilty about watching it. This movie was obviously aimed at teens and you can see that. Some character motivations don't really make sense but it's not really the point. It's just making fun of constant teen tropes and it's legit funny. And there's nothing wrong with that.
Acerbic writing. Some troubling uses of Africa and Asians as punchlines... They're striking blemishes in an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable film.
After years of home-schooling, Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) enters a real high school and falls under the sway of the popular Plastics. A little silly at times, but still, a very entertaining high school comedy. Tina Fey's script delivers laughs (via some riotous, quotable lines) and makes some good points about how girls interact. Amongst a perfect ensemble, Lohan is terrific, matched by Rachel McAdams as the callous Regina.
Good score by Rolfe Kent.
What an iconic, quotable movie.
"Oh my god, Karen, you can't just ask people why they're white."
Muy chistosa, sobre adolescentes perturbadas en la sociedad.
This is the movie you will be ashamed to love. Watching it as a grown-up will make you regret finishing high school.... or not.
I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
