Product Description

Raised in the African bush country by her zoologist parents, Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) thinks she knows about "survival of the fittest." But the law of the jungle takes on a whole new meaning when the home-schooled 15-year-old enters public high school for the first time and falls prey to the psychological warfare and unwritten social rules that teenage girls face today.

The cutting wit of Tina Fey (the first female head writer for Saturday Night Live) brilliantly fuses pop culture and smart satire. Fey wrote Mean Girls, in which a formerly home-schooled girl named Cady (Lindsay Lohan) gets dropped into the sneaky, vicious world of the Plastics, three adolescent glamour-girls who dominate their public high school's social hierarchy. Cady first befriends a couple of art-punk outsiders who persuade her to infiltrate the Plastics and destroy them from within--but power corrupts, and Cady soon finds the glory of being a Plastic to be seductive. Mean Girls joins the ranks of Clueless, Bring It On, and Heathers, cunning movies that use the hormone-pressurized high school milieu to put the dark impulses of human nature--ambition, envy, lust, revenge--under a comic microscope. Fey manages to skewer everyone without forgetting the characters' hapless humanity; it's a dazzling and delightful balancing act. --Bret Fetzer

After an adamant boycott of everyone and everything teeny-bopper (aka Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan), I decided that maybe I shouldn't be so prejudiced. Maybe these movies are alright.

So I rented "Mean Girls" not expecting too much - just a chick flick with a stupid plot. Boy, was I wrong!

The film could have been bad. Worse than bad - it could have been awful. But it wasn't. It turned the other way, entering the dark world of the Plastics.

Tina Fey shows an excellent grip over satire and comedy in not only her performance, but also her screenplay. I also felt it smart to utilize the talents of other SNL mates, Tim Meadows and the glorious Amy Poehler, who all seem to have excellent chemistry and add so much comedic parts to the film.

Fey portrays high school life in a vicious, yet addicting, satire of the teenage years. There are parts to the film that I think everyone is able to relate to, whether you're at the butt of the joke, or you're the one divvying them out. Either way, you can't help but laugh, or say, "That's so fetch!"

And like I said, a film like this is fragile territory (especially after Lohan's poor film choices lately...), but I feel that all of the actors pulled it off so well.

If you're looking for a light, hilarious satire, look no further than "Mean Girls," and see what everyone's talking about...

This was my fourth time watching Mean Girls. I really like it and think it shows the high school scene through a girl's point of view. This movie's about a young girl who enters high school for the very first time. 16-year-old Cady Heron has been home-schooled all her life. Till now that is. She befriends Janis Ian and Damian, who informs her on who is "naughty or nice" in the school. They also tell Cady about, and to stay away from, The Plastics. One day, Cady gets invited to sit with The Plastics for lunch. Regina George, the leader of The Plastics (aka "The Queen Bee") invites Cady to eat with them for the rest of the week. Cady agrees, and then afterwards tells Janis and Damian the news.

When Cady falls for Regina's ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels, Regina agrees to talk to him for Cady. At a Halloween party, as Regina is talking to Aaron, she inadvertently kisses him. Heartbroken, Cady and her two friends plan to destroy Regina (emotionally of course). They do all kinds of stuff to breakdown Regina's "image".

This is a really good movie with a great cast. Lindsay Lohan plays an outstanding role as Cady. Regina George, played by Rachel McAdams (also starred in The Notebook) is awesome at her role also. Her role was also very believable, as if she was a real life "Plastic".

P.S. When I first saw this movie, I had no idea Rachel McAdams played the part of Regina George. I was in complete shock when I heard.

I had heard good things about this movie but never realized just how good it was until I saw it for myself. "Mean Girls" explores familiar territory and doesn't break any new ground, but the excellent and intelligent script make it stand out and exceed other similar movies such as "Jawbreaker." Most importantly, this movie touches on the subject of our need for acceptance and oftentimes, the temptation of belonging, even if what we want to belong to isn't necessarily good for us. This applies to everyone, at any age, in any setting. "Mean Girls" uses high school as the backdrop, but its message applies anywhere.

And this movie will also give you a newfound respect for Lindsay Lohan's acting ability, as she is very believable in her role. I wasn't expecting much from her but was pleasantly surprised as to how well she pulled off her role. This is by far her best film.

All in all, a great movie worth owning. Great DVD too...lots of bonus material and a great transfer.

Format: DVD
It seems in all stereotypical films about high school life and teenagers, there's the popular Alpha-girl group, the Queen Bee being prettiest, most glamorous girl in school but also the meanest. Usually the main character of the film suffers at the hands of the Mean Popular Queen Bee, always an outsider waiting to be persecuted at any moment.

This film is no exception, but it offers a sharp, clever, refreshing takeoff on this much-used theme in teen movies. And for the first time, we see a girl who finds herself accepted into the Alpha-girl group, only to still suffer at the hands of the Queen Bee, even as an insider.

The story is also downright funny. Tina Fey did an excellent job with the script and in her role as the math teacher.

The fact that Cady is a total innocent when she's dropped into the hormone-crazed world of high school and the Plastics makes even a greater impact, because we can see her innocence corrupted by the heady, seductive pull of popularity and power. Yet she never quite loses her innocence and her ideals; Cady is still part observer, part participant who gets lost along the way, but learns some important lessons about life in the end and becomes a better, wiser person as a result.

The audience is made painfully aware of the strict rules and social classes that govern high school life, because it is in such sharp contrast to the innocent, blank slate accepting attitude that home-schooled Cady brings with her on that first day of high school. We've all had yearnings of being in the popular group, myself included, but after viewing this film, I'm glad I belonged to the Art/Drama/Politically Active Intellectual Crowd instead of the Popular Alpha Girl Clique.

Fake ratings at the Internet Movie Database website?
You know what, umbrellaboneturtle. I think you might be on to something here. The first time that I saw this movie's rating on that website it was a 7.0/10 and that was back in November of 2006. Then suddenly, yesterday, which was May 11, 2007, I check and now it is showing only a measly 6.9/10.... Read More
