Mean GirlsDirector: Mark S. Waters
Tina Fey from Saturday Night Live wrote and appears in this comedy about the alternately funny and terrifying pecking order among teenage girls. Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) is a 15-year-old girl who has spent most of her life in Africa, where she was home-schooled by her zoologist parents. When her family relocates to the United States, Cady finds herself attending a high school in suburban Illinois, where she gets a crash course in the various sub-strata of the student body: the jocks, the cheerleaders, the stoners, the "cool" kids, and so on. Much to her surprise, Cady finds herself embraced by a clique of rich and popular girls known to outsiders as "the Plastics," led by Regina George (Rachel McAdams), Gretchen Weiners (Lacey Chabert), and Karen Smith (Amanda Seyfried). While Cady is grateful for her new friends, it doesn't take long for her to realize how manipulative they can be, and she soon discovers she's violated an unwritten law when she goes out on a date with Aaron (Jonathan Bennett), who is charming, good looking...and Regina's former boyfriend. It isn't long before Regina and her pals are on the warpath, and Cady must face a level of vengeful behavior for which years in the jungle never prepared her. Joining Tina Fey in the supporting cast are fellow SNL players Amy Poehler, Ana Gasteyer, and Tim Meadows. The screenplay for Mean Girls was based in part on Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends and Other Realities of Adolescence, a book by professional youth counselor Rosalind Wiseman.

I've seen Lindsay Lohan in The Parent Trap Freaky Friday and Confessions Of A Teenage Drama Queen. I've seen Tina Fey and Amy Phoehler in Baby Mama
This movie had a stupid meaning for high school. I mean- Girls aren't always like that- they insult girls everywhere. People who actuallly like this movie, they definately need to get taste in GOOD movies. So DON"T BUY THIS!!!
This movie is so good. Every time I watch this movie I always pick up more things from it. It one of the funniest movies I have every seen! I can watch this movie over and over againg and never get bored! This movie is one that I can realate to because its real life. Mean Girls is a must see!
wow mean girls sorta like Heathers and Jawbreakers but better with Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams the movie is a chick flick but cool for guys to watch i really liked mean girls i even own the dvd!!!
This movie was a great, hilarious portrayal of what high school is like for teenage girls. While it may be exaggerated at times, the pressures that the main character Cady goes through are very much a reality for many high school girls. She finds herself pushed to join the "in-crowd," to go to the cool parties, to go out with the cutest boys, and the list goes on. All the while, she schemes with her other, less popular friends, to ruin the life of the most popular girl in school. These are situations that many teens can relate to; I know that a lot of it looked familiar me and what I saw while in high school. So many girls are pressured all the time to be the prettiest or the most popular, and this movie can give them something and someone to relate to. The characters called “the Plastics” in the movie are ones that many views I’m sure can identify in their own lives. These girls are the ones who everyone else wants to be like, but never can. These characters come to life in every high school. Most of the teens watching the movie, however, will not be a part of that group because it makes up such a fraction of the population of high schools. This allows the majority of viewers to relate more to Cady and her struggles, and helps them to realize that life doesn’t have to be a constant effort to be the best. Through all of the drama of the movie, the end shows probably the most important message, which is that girls can all get along and be friends without certain ones being superior to others. Some could argue that certain parts of the movie are too extreme for younger viewers, such as scenes of parties, but these situations are extremely true to the high school atmosphere and help give teens something else to relate to. If you want to see a movie that is extremely funny and entertaining while giving a positive message to teenage girls, this is a definite must-have.
i thought this movie was the s***! i like regina and cady. i also liked it when cady made her fat, and when regina got hit by that bus and when janice cut hole through her whife-beater and every girl started doing it. but this movie shows who your real friends are, and it shows how far people will go just to fit into the "it crowd" it rocked hard man. I watched it 540 times counting. This should mget an oscar. If you wanna see sex, dramma, and comedy. Then this is the movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!also my favorite character was gretchen, she was just too fetch, also my favorite part was when the dog kept biting on regina's mom nipples!! i LOL'd!!
IT WAS FUNNY, OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE BY LINDSAY LOHAN
A good movie on how high school is in some schools.It is also one of the funnest movies I have ever seen. Those that don't like this miovie need a sense of humor.
This may be the best 'Teen Movie' of my generation. It is wicked-fun, truthful, raw, and one of the funniest teen-flick I've evered watched! In two days of owning it, I have watched it ---3 times--- it's so delish! ***Summary***The movie itself is a story of Cady(Played by Teen Queen,Lindsey Lohan)who is bascially a little-home-schooled-exchange-student entering the world of Highschool, Girl World, and Teen World all in one year. After time goes by she slowly learns the ropes of the good and evil of highschool thanks to her two new friends, Jaynce and Damian, but soon after meeting the good people of North Shore High, she meets the evil ones. Gretchen, Karon, and the Queen Bee, Regina---The Plastics, who are teen royalty and the most evil girls in the entire school! Bascially, story goes on, and Cady hooks up into the Plastics and thinks of them as new friends but learns quickly in girl world friends are just titles. The war and fur starts to fly after the 'new plastic,' Cady have a huge crush on Aaron---Regina's Ex, and in laws of feminism that is not something to do in the world of Plastic. So the Four leading ladies face off in a fun, evil, wicked-bad, war. Watch, learn, and have fun! You'll be asking for more!
The movie was great!!! I love actresses like Lindsay she did a fantasic job as all the others did too.
Ok, do not, not, not buy this for kids. There is stuff in there that is totally NOT NEEDED for a movie. I'm 14 and there is stuff in there that I don't need to see. So do yourself a favor if you are a parent, and don't buy this for your kids!
Lindsay Lohan has an outstanding performance in the movie, and the movie is for all ages to see.
I liked Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen so much better that this one
This movie is hilarious and I think Lindsay Lohan did a GREAT job!!!! Tina Fey is a great actress as well! This movie is totally fetch!
I kind of liked it. It was funny and it shows a lot of teen issues. It was good, but flawed. Very flawed. Way too girly for me, butI think a lot of guys will like it ,too. It was funny.
Tina Fey is a brilliant writer for this movie. She needs to make more movies like Mean Girls! I love her on SNL, and I wished she wasn't leaving. I hope her new show on NBC does good. The greatest line from the movie is what the sex ed teacher says. Mean Girls is such a great movie!
I thought this movie was good. I expected it to be another dumb teen flick, but instead I got so much better, especially when they used some of the veteran actors from SNL. Good movie, worth a watch. You should check this flick out.
When my friends brought this movie to my house I thought, "great another stupid teen film". However, when it was over I was amazed. Not since the movie Heathers was I as impressed with a film about high school. If you have ever dealt with evil teeanage girls, or if you were one, this is the movie for you.
Mean girls was one of the best funny movies i have ever seen. It seems like in every sence there would be something really funny. All of my friends loved the movie. I also really loved the acters in this movie. They did a very excellent in the movie. When i frist saw the movie Mean Girls i was laughing through the whole movie. I loved how they had the burn book, where they would write nasty things about all they girls in their grade. My favorite part in the movie is when Cady played by Lindsey Lohan, trys to ruin one of the meaniest girls in the school life. This movie is one of the best funny chich flicks i seen yet. I watch this movie almost every week and I still have not gotten sick of this movie. I would tell anyone who likes funny chick flicks to watch this movie. It was GREAT movie!
mean girls is a classic funny movie
