Jo is a transfer student who just wants a quiet school year before she's off to study architecture at Carnegie-Mellon University. She befriends rich but klutzy Abby, a target for the cliquy "plastics" led by chief mean girl Mandi. In a twist Abby's father pays Jo to befriend her, and Jo realizes that her new BFF is worth more than the cash. Soon a war between the plastics and well everyone else at the school breaks out. Will Jo come clean with Abby before her secret is revealed?

With a d-list cast, bad writing, lots of overacting (never a good thing), and no real story to tell, this sequel is pretty awful. I still cannot believe that I sat through it, particularly when it was paired with the far superior original. Some sequels should just never get made.

Ditto everything reviewer Tracy Vest wrote. My sentiments exactly. I couldn't make it through the entire movie without doing something in addition to watching the movie to distract me from its awfulness. So, though the movie was terrible, my dishes and laundry are now done.

And: The only good thing about this movie is that it made me want to watch Mean Girls, the good one, not this poor (even for ABC Family) imitation.

After Mean Girls was such a hit a few years before, audiences would expect that a sequel should live up to what it's predacessor promised. However, this was not the case with this movie. A semi innocent outsider comes into a new high school wanting to have a year free of drama before she finishes her last year before heading off to Carnegie Mellon. She's a tough girl, so she seems, not caring what others think and has her quirky interests (shop class) where she doesn't have to contend with other women/girls for attentions. And then she meets a loveable gal named Abby who is clumbsy and awkward, and oddly enough, from a wealthy family. Her father eventually pays Jo (our hero) to be Abby's friend. Then the Mean Girls clique, headed by the slightly dimwitted Mandy, is out to get her. Jo and her friends then form their own clique, calling themselves the Anti-Plastics, in an effort to usurp the Plastics powers and control.

The story itself had some potential, but it was ruined by fair acting and not being very strong a plot to begin with. The message in this movie (as well as it's predacessor) is that power corrupts. I only got it because it came in a two pack purchase with Mean Girls 1. Otherwise how else would people see this?

This is awful. This doesn't even deserve to be called a film. Maiara Walsh and Jennifer Stone were horrendous in the Disney shows they originally acted in, but MY GOSH! Who knew there was anything worse than Cory in the House?
This is horribly corny, unrealistic, and lame. The humor in the original Mean Girls is replaced with the timid use of two curse words and way too much slapstick. Don't waste your time.

I caught a glimpse of this film during its premiere on ABC Family, and I was just P.O.ed at the fact that this garbage that is Mean Girls II exists! Avoid this, buy the original 2004 film. It was awesome, and was Lindsay Lohan's 2nd to last film of her "former" career (her good career, ranging from 1998 to 2005). The original is also a prime example of how teens (no matter what gender) act.

i didn't like this at all. the original was better. the characters were really lame compared to the first. i found it very boring. i didn't like it also because of the actors. they're new and inexperienced in movie making.

This is not a sequel but a remake of the original. As a sequel goes, it rates up there with Caddy Shack II. The movie starts out with some smart narration as people are compared to the cars that they drive. The message of the story is mixed and lost. At one point it was a High School Animal Farm where the non-plastics were as bad as the plastics, and at other times it was about friendship.

The movie starts out at about 4 stars and digresses to no stars during a female football game that made no sense. Rated PG-13, and that is about the age of the audience this film was designed. Three stars is generous, but I am old and the girls are cute. BTW putting sugar in a gas tank is not just mean but is criminal activity.

Disgusting. I could say it over and over again. This movie is so irritating, it's--you guessed it--disgusting. These Disney stars trade in their Wizard wands and golden microphones for "easy upchuck" medicine and foul mouths. To hear them cry "you narccisstic b----h" and "He sounds like an a--" in their squeaky little high-pitched voices isn't just offensive, it's stupid. Honestly? It's like hearing 6th and 7th graders cuss out their friends. That's what these girls look like, too...grade-schoolers instead of seniors. There's very few redemptive qualities: Jo shrugs off Mandi's tormenting (until the Plastics hurt Jo's dad...then she makes Mandi's life miserable). Jo is made fun of for being a virgin, but then people tell her secretly they wish they'd waited too. Jo has a good relationship with her dad. She doesn't want to accept money for being friends with a girl, but soon after she does take it she feels guilty and returns it. The soundtrack isn't spectacular, but it has some good tracks.
On the other hand, you have the bad: Mandi is a seemingly perfect little princess, but she's spiteful and vindictive. She proudly admits "I'm a benevolent dictator" and is thoroughly obsessed with herself. Chastity is the complete opposite of what her name means, as she has a "raging libido" and is "stupid enough to hit a home run with any guy who was willing to play". We see her passionately kissing several boys in isolated areas such as a stairwell "a herpes disaster waiting to happen". The plastics use everything from sex to money, compliments to sabotage to get exactly what they want. Jo, for all her good qualities, is a foul-mouthed tomboy who steals Mandi's popularity by wearing immodest rocker clothes (but of course, they have to be trendy--thus the bright yellow flowers and lacy frills and girly accents. Right.).
For the utterly ridiculous aspects, there's plenty: The show-down, a game of powerpuff football...huh??? The plastics do not deliver a particularly memorable performance in their popular girl roles. They seem more like mediocre superstar wannabes. Their clothes don't really pop or stand out; they seem to blend. There's just not much to differentiate between the populars and the "normal" people, except perhaps the be in the in crowd you must be completely evil and wear pink. There's also no explanation as to why the Plastics are...well, the Plastics. They aren't involved in anything at the school...sports, cheerleading, no class president-status...they aren't the principal's kids and their parents aren't the richest. I suppose it must be that they ruin people's lives. But honestly, if some punk freshman with no real power started playing the pranks on everyone, trying to be top dog, wouldn't the older kids put them in their place in the real wrold? Maiara Walsh, who plays Mandi, gives the best effort. She's gorgeous and brunette (always nice to see the "it" girl with dark hair, not blonde) and her voice is deeper than you would expect--not the normal high-pitched whine. The storyline is predictable, shallow, and boring. If I could, I'd give it a negative five stars. Wish I hadn't wasted so much time watching it. Offensive, silly, unrealistic, and...yep...disgusting.

This movie is awful, plain and simple. If some fiber of your being urges you to watch this, rent it (it's even undeserving of that), or wait for it to come on ABC Family again. I love the first Mean Girls and I only watched this to see how bad it would be. I was right. Instead of wasting your money on this, go buy the first Mean Girls (again, even if you already have it) or go see that new 3D Justin Bieber movie (just stay away from this). That's how bad this movie is. The most anyone should watch this movie is once.
