Mean Girls

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


Mean Girls 2

Billed as a sequel to the popular 2004 Mean Girls, Mean Girls 2 is almost more of a remake of the original film than its sequel. The actors are new, with the exception of Principal Duvall (Tim Meadows), but the stereotypical high-school atmosphere of cliques and bullying is certainly the same. This time, "the Plastics" clique of popular girls that rule the school consists of Mandi (Maiara Walsh), Chastity (Claire Holt), and Hope (Nicole Gale Anderson)--three extremely self-absorbed girls who butt heads with the ungainly Abby (Jennifer Stone) and new transfer student Jo (Meaghan Martin). In a different twist, Jo befriends Abby because Abby's father bribes Jo with the promise of paying her college tuition. Similar to the first film, Jo sets out to infiltrate the Plastics' inner circle to sabotage them, but is seduced by the benefits of popularity and begins to lose her way. This second film is not as funny as the first, due in large part to the absence of Tina Fey's wit, but there's still plenty of sarcasm and humor. Meaghan Martin does a nice job with the leading role, Jennifer Stone is quite believable as the eclectic, shunned artistic type, and if the performances of Nicole Gale Anderson and Claire Holt seem shallow and overdone, it's likely because the characters they play demand it. The film is not really a continuation of the Mean Girls plot, but Mean Girls 2 is a solid movie that highlights the value of true friendship as well as the serious problems of bullying and social cliques plaguing today's high schools. (Ages 12 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

1.0 out of 5 stars A horrid sequel January 25, 2011
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible April 10, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars It was mean of them to make this movie February 7, 2012
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lamest Sequel EVER! November 3, 2012
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars FALLS SHORT February 13, 2011
Format:DVD
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.
