Mean Girls [Blu-ray]

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...
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.
First, Mean Girls has a funny, smart, crisp script due to Tina Fey. I don't watch Saturday Night Live, so I don't know how funny she is, but she sure wrote a gem here.
Second, Lohan has a worthy adversary in Rachel McAdams (Regina). McAdams is a genuinely good actress as opposed to the broad in Confessions whose name I don't know and don't really care to know. By Rachel McAdams' roles in Red Eye, The Notebook, Wedding Crashers, and the Family Stone, she is certainly an actress to be on the watch for. I predict she will win an Oscar eventually.
Third, Lohan doesn't have to carry the movie on her own. She has legitimate talent around her. I am not expert enough to truly gauge Lohan's talent; therefore I don't know if she would have the acting chops to be a profound leading actress or if she will forever live in mediocre teenage/romantic comedy hell.
Anyway, the girl who plays Janis Ian and the guy who plays Damian are great as supporting cast to Lindsay.
Mean Girls isn't some dumb movie that aspires to mediocrity just because it's catered to teenagers. It's smart.
P.S. The guy who plays Kevin Gnapoor is hilarious! "I'd rather see you out there shaking that thang!"
Lindsey plays a girl called Cady Heron who's been living in Africa for the most of her life, but for highschool her family moves back to USA and she starts highschool there, Lindsay Lohan plays a teen girl trying to get along at a new high school with "rules" that are completely diffrent from what she was used to. She first meets 2 outsiders (Damian and Janis) But Her first experience at the new school is marred by a bunch of nasty girls called the Plastics, three very popular but crude girls (Regina, Karen and Gretchen), they are indeed mean and their prime task is to ruin the life of other girls with gossip, and other mean tecniques. Eventually she gots into the Plastics group but keeps her 2 first friends, in order to reveal dark secrets from the Plastics. Cady falls in love with Regina's ex boyfriend Aaron and there's where the problem starts. What started as a "game", is becoming a plan to destroy Regina.
This is a great comedy, funny, well made, and exciting. Go see it.
