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.
"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…
"There are two kinds of evil people in this world. Those who do evil stuff and those who see evil stuff being done and don't try to stop it."
So I finally got round to watching this. And it was just as good as everyone said it was. Probably one of the funniest and most quotable films I've seen, this is another great entry in the high school movie genre. Basically, it's just brilliant and I'm ashamed that I've only just seen it. Sorry.

"She's like super rich. Her dad invited Toaster Strudel."
Even with all the praise, I still skeptically awaited an annoying, mindless chick flick. I was mistaken. Mean Girls is relentlessly witty, relatable, briskly paced, bitingly satirical, occasionally hilarious and impressively acted throughout. I'vent seen many films tackling this subject matter, so as of right now Mean Girls reigns supreme in that department. The chick flick look is a masquerade, and underneath if watched with an open mind, Mean Girls successfully tackles the psyche of high school clique culture and the underestimated bane of gossip, betrayal and slandering.
Το μόνο πράγμα που την κάνει να ξεχωρίζει από τα υπόλοιπα High School Movies,είναι το ότι τουλάχιστον αυτή βγάζει λίγο γέλιο...
Perfect. This is one of the most popular chick flick movies and I can see why. Lindsay Lohan at her prime and the film that set off Rachel Mcadams glittering career. This movie has the clothes, the comedy and the brilliant script and one liners. The dog eating the breast implant was the highlight of the film. Grasps the reality of what high school is like to a T. Impossible not to love this movie.
"Don't have sex, because you will get pregnant and die!"
I love this movie so much. This movie never get old no matter how many times I see it. The casting is spot-on perfect.
So after a decade of hype i watched this movie. People I know are constantly quoting it and saying it's the best movie ever!
I mean it's a okay movie. But not the greatest like others made it out to be I don't know if it has much rewatchablity value to it. There was some funny things in it. But overall I just felt it was meh to all right.
