5.0 out of 5 stars Lindsay's face would make a great kissing post., May 10, 2006
This review is from: Mean Girls (Widescreen Edition) (DVD)
I saw this movie in my Linear Algebra class and I'm sorry, but it's just ADORABLE. When I saw this movie, I had a particularly difficult time concentrating on the plot and whatnot. I was too busy focusing on two things: one, how breathtakingly bewitching Ms. Lohan's "Cady" was; and two, how this movie so brilliantly incorporates the subject matter of Mathematics, more specifically Calculus, into its storyline. It wasn't just solely because of aesthetic qualities that I found Ms. Lohan's "Cady" attractive, it was because she liked Math and understood the subject that I just couldn't help but feel attracted to her.

This is a really cute movie with a really cute cast. There is one scene in this movie that just... just takes a blowtorch and applies it directly to your heart, melting it like butter somewhere in the middle of Central Africa. That scene would have to be the one where Ms. Lohan's "Cady" quickly develops a crush on a character sitting directly in front of her in Calculus class, a character by the name of "Aaron Samuels." I found this scene particularly touching for two key reasons: one, it happens during Calculus class, and two, it was Ms. Lohan's "Cady's" first cruch since she was five years old (when the story begins, she is sixteen). It is tough not to admit that that is admirable. However, I guess at this point, the viewer becomes fully aware of what it would take to get the heart racing of even the most stationary of students, that is, another student whose attractiveness rivals that of even the most expensive jewlery.

As for Ms. Lohan's "Cady" herself, I found her particularly fun to stare at, especially her face. I mean, it's just so clean, and clear.... CRYSTAL clear.... and shiny (you can actually SEE the light bouncing right off of it), and just downright beautiful, especially when she smiles. She's also got some really nice cheeks; As far as I am concerned, they are absolutely perfect! In fact, just the thought of kissing them is enough to make one's mouth water! If there's anything to complain about here, then it is the fact that the performer doesn't seem to have as many freckles on her face, as in previous films in which she has starred, such as "Get a Clue," or "The Parent Trap." As a matter of fact, the only time that one observes any freckles on her face at all is during the scenes in the math classroom where she is seen thinking about "Mr. Samuels."

For the most part, this film reminded me of when I took AP Calculus AB in high school. We covered the basics: limits, derivatives, and integrals. The only thing that was slightly different was the mention of geometric series, a topic which, at least in my experience, is not covered until one takes Calculus II at the collegiate level. Other things I noticed were the bringing of donuts to class by the instructor, which reminded me of those optional Saturday morning classes, which were geared towards preparing us, students, for the AP Calc. AB exam, and the scene where two state schools are having a competition of some kind, which, unlike the one that WE were supposed to have, covers questions spanning material from both the AP Calc. AB exam AND the SAT.

The scene that I enjoyed just SLIGHTLY less than the other two is the one where Ms. Lohan's "Cady" tricks Aaron into being alone with her by having him "tutor" her in Calculus. This results in the two of them sharing a three-and-a-half second kiss, after it was thought that the "tutoring" was shaping out to be a success. If there's anything that could have possibly made this any sweeter or cuter, then it is a scenario in which the the kiss would have lasted a little longer... probably about six more seconds. Another thing I would change is to have one scene where Ms. Lohan's "Cady" is kissing Aaron with her hair in a ponytail, because something about her hair being in a ponytail just makes her look so SO cute that it's not even funny, and I have a feeling that kissing her in this state would be a much more pleasurable experience as well. On the other hand, why be greedy? After all, it IS the thought that counts, and if anything, it teaches us how to be thankful for what it is that we do have.

P.S.: The product of two negative integers is ALWAYS a positive number, not sometimes...
