This early 2000s comedy chronicles the ridiculousness of being a teenager in high school as well as being a part of all the different cliques. Cady is entering high school for the very first time after being homeschooled in Africa all her life. It is there where she meets Karen, Regina, and Gretchen, the most popular and meanest girls at school. Cady’s friends Janis and Damian tell her to spy on them and find out what they are really like. However, soon enough Cady is in too deep and begins changing as a person herself. This movie is hilarious, honest, and crazy at times which makes it such a comedic classic. I would rate this film 4.5/5 stars and recommend it to those looking for a laugh and a way to make fun of their past selves.

Lindsey Lohan at her former balanced self (before the drugs, family opera, etc.) does a good job playing a home-schooled geek dropped into a vicious clique of hot girls. She turns her back on the offbeat artists and sharpens her own claws as the popular girls battle for hot supremacy in the narrow confines of high school. Dismaying to hear the self-internalized misogyny as the girls name call each other with "slut" and "whore". Tina Fey plays peacemaker in a little too glib of an ending.

She doesn't even go here!

This Tina Fey classic is still absolute gold! Revisit this one any time you need a good, solid laugh.

VERY GOOD 2004 comedic plus glimpse into contemporary high school drama. No doubt high schoolers interact quite a bit different post 2000 than we did half a century before and it made for an interesting view for older me.

Never saw when it originally came out but a lot better than I thought would be! Typical ehh high school plot, but great casting, dialogue, cut/imaginative scenes (not sure what that style is called but i.e. the school being like the African range)

Kept me watching until the end, though the whole idea of who's popular or good-looking and who's not still gets on my nerves.

Haven't watch Mean Girls (Yes I have been living under a rock on the other side of the world), but I am looking forward to. Hope my holding would come fast.

Mean Girls is a typically teen movie, but in my defence, it really is a great film. If you haven't seen this movie, you must be living under a rock. Mean Girls goes into further detail as to how badly you can be treated in high school by bullies. Cady Herring, yes, Cady, is the new girl in school. She becomes friends with some weirdos, and the most popular girls in school. She later has to choose between her real friends, and her fake friends. Of course, popularity is the first thing on anybody's mind, so Cady eventually becomes a mean girl! I really liked this movie, because it is an accurate representation of how rude people can ruin your life. In some scenes, you really felt sorry for Cady. She was home schooled her entire life, and she came to a brand new high school, and turned into someone she never was. If you like movies and stories based on teens and their struggles, watch this movie! I give this film a 5/5. It's a classic!

Mean Girls is an absolute classic that cannot be compared to anything else. This hilarious film follows the story of Cady Heron, clueless new girl experiencing public school for the very first time. She soon falls victim to an elite clique of popular mean girls called “The Plastics,” and finds that high school is a roller coaster of ups and downs. In the end, Cady comes back down to earth and realizes the importance of being friendly and kind in a vicious world where everyone is constantly trying to put each other down. If you’re a teenage girl, you NEED to see this movie as soon as possible!
