1.0 out of 5 stars Disgusting, July 19, 2011
This review is from: Mean Girls 2 (Amazon Video)
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.
