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 came across this movie the other day on tv and since I didn't know anything else to see I decided to watch it, Ofcourse I thought it would be the average lightweight teen high school comedy, but I had never seen any movies with Lindsey Lohan before so I was tempted to see what it was anyway. Boy, I was pleasently surprised!. "Mean Girls" is a very good comedy, both funny and well made and it's better then most other simular high school comedies. Lindsey Lohan also proves to be a great comedy actress just like I heard.

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.

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.
