Plot: Cady Heron is a hit with The Plastics, the A-list girl clique at her new school, until she makes the mistake of falling for Aaron Samuels, the ex-boyfriend of alpha Plastic Regina George. Runtime: 97 mins Release Date: 30 Apr 2004
Worlds hottest movie, according to everyone "in". Obama has quoted from it. Very erudite movie, teaching that motivational structure is one of the hottest topics. An example of this is when Cory Heron decides to on purpose worsen her mathematics exam results, because she wants a reason to ask for help to the boy she is attracted to. If she has good grades on the mathematics exams, she obviously do not need to ask for help from him, as he pointed out. Therefore, her motivation is to do poorly in mathematics. Motivation is everything.
So Fetch (by tom_sto86)
Mean Girls isn't your average teen comedy, which you can tell are written by adults who have no insight into the social politics that revolve around teenage life, and who consequently divide everyone into two groups - cool jocks and cheerleaders and uncool goths and science nerds . And it is this inherent understanding of teen life, that writer Tina Fey has applied to the film which makes it stand out, and such a pleasure to watch.Cady Herron played by Lindsay Lohan is starting her first day of school - and she's 16. She's been home-schooled all her life in Africa , and is <more>
totally unprepared for and untutored in the ways of an American high school. She quickly befriends Janis Ian Lizzy Caplan and Damian Daniel Franzese , two of the biggest social outcasts in school. However, after a chance encounter in the canteen with the plastics teen royalty , otherwise known as Regina George Rachel Macadams , Gretched Wieners Lacey Chabert and Karen Smith Amanda Seyfried , Cady's world begins to change dramatically as she is sucked in by the rules and cliques of Girlworld.The dialogue in the film is sharp and witty, not the OTT Dawson's Creek or O.C. teen-speak. The teenagers actually look like teenagers, not like 30 year olds playing teenagers. And what holds the film together are the great performances from the actors. They're all perfect. Lindsay Lohan is perfect as Cady, the clueless girl who gets a taste of popularity and has to have more. Lizzy Caplan is a revelation as Janis, a punk character who would be sidelined either as a freak, or as a candidate for a makeover, in any other teen movie. But it is the actresses who play the plastics who truly stand out. Lacey Chabert is ideal as Gretchen, the insecure, 2nd-in command girl, who fakes her friendship with Regina just to be considered popular. Amanda Seyfried, as the ultimate dumb blonde Karen, has impeccable comic timing. And rising Hollywood star Rachel Macadams, as Regina George, is the stand-out in the film as the manipulative bitch who has to stay on top at all costs.Mean Girls isn't just a film for teen girls and gay guys. Most of my straight male friends love it, and everyone I know who's seen it recognises elements of the film and the characters from their own secondary school experiences. Mean Girls is, as Gretchen would say in keeping with "British" slang, even though I'm English and the term just doesn't exist! , that the film is just So Fetch.
Without a doubt, the film Mean Girls is entertaining to the extreme! This gem of a movie features a fascinating cast, an interesting storyline, and a message that is very straightforward. The flick also delivers numerous moments that are sure to prove themselves to be unforgettable. Lindsay Lohan is an actress that really glows with powerful evidence.The characters in this movie are lots of terrific fun to watch. Each one keeps you amused in a very unique way. Cady, the lead character, is a joyous young personality. I really like all three of the girls in the Plastics "gang". Not <more>
only are Regina, Gretchen, and Karen are all exceedingly attractive from my point of perspective, but they are also incredibly stunning. Cady's parents are a little passive and boring. Mr. Duvall, the school's ever watchful chief administrator, is perhaps the most aggressive figure in the entire movie. Math instructor Ms. Norbury has tons of persistence, confidence and charisma. Mrs. George is also very charming. Janis and Damian are somewhat apprehensive, pessimistic, and restless. Finally, Aaron, the popular boy, is very sociable and intellectual.In short, I love this movie to the full. It really keeps me mesmerized even when the points are low. Lindsay Lohan's character is truly a delight. Forever a favorite!
The teen-movie genre returns with "Mean Girls," and it comes back with a vengeance. What could have been a tired and clichéd retread of "Heathers" is actually a clever and witty flick thanks to the talents of screenwriter Tina Fey. Fey, head writer for "Saturday Night Live" and co-anchor of their "Weekend Update," has an amazing flair for satire, and what better way to showcase it than with a analytical glimpse at the world of high school cliques? Lindsay Lohan is Cady, the previously home-schooled daughter of two zoologists, growing up in the African <more>
wilderness while Mom and Dad conduct their research. When the 'rents decide to settle down, Cady gets her first taste of public schooling, which is almost as wild as the jungles and safaris she's used to. Cady is introduced to the different factions that populate the cafeteriaincluding the nympho band geeks, the nerdy Asians, the cool Asians, the varsity jocks and of course, the Plastics, teen royalty led by the manipulative Regina George Rachel McAdams .Cady is encouraged to infiltrate the Plastics by her new friends Janice Lizzy Caplan , a gothy and arty outcast who possesses a Janaene Garafalo-style wit, and the flamboyantly out-and-proud Damian Daniel Franzese , who fears the Plastics but admires their fabulousness. Cady agrees to the sabotage scheme, but it's not long before she succumbs to the glamorous life of the Plastics and starts to engage in their underhanded activities, such as writing in their "Burn Book," in which nasty and hilarious things are jotted down about every girl in their high school.It all might sound like the typical teen fare, but the result is nothing like that. The cast is surprisingly flawless, from Lohan who brings a depth to her role that Hilary Duff could only ever dream of achieving to the entire supporting cast, which is filled with current "SNL" members and alums. Fey herself shows up along with Tim Meadows as sardonic members of the high school faculty, while Ana Gasteyer and Amy Poehler portray parents who just don't understand. Poehler steals every scene she's in as Regina's "cool mom," desperately trying to fit in by doing things like offering minors alcohol at her home, because she'd rather have them drinking there than somewhere else.The younger members of the cast don't let the veterans walk away with the whole show though. Caplan and Franzese own their roles, Franzese particularly when Damian displays his adulation for Christina Aguilera during a holiday talent show. The other members of the Plastics shine as well. Besides the deliciously vindictive McAdams as the Queen Bee, the crew includes former "Party of Five" actress Lacey Chabert as the gossipy Gretchen and Amanda Seyfried as the clueless Karen, who's not above making out with her first cousin because "there's cousins, and then there's first cousins and second cousins " .Fey, with the help of director Mark Waters "Freaky Friday," "The House of Yes" , has infused the film with her trademark comedic brilliance. The jokes and gags come at a break-neck pace, but the punch lines aren't the only hilarious aspects. Little touches such as Gretchen's dad being the inventor of Toaster Strudels and Regina's MTV obsessed little sister are details that will inspire laughter long after the movie is over. Even the particulars about the background characters should provide endless chuckles just try to think about Trang Pak, the girl in wheelchair and her little person-sidekick, and the Middle-Eastern, hip-hop-obsessed mathlete/"Bad-Ass MC" after the movie without smiling .If there's anything to complain about in this film, it's the overt sexualization of teenage girls. Of course, the actresses are older than they play, with the exception of Lohan who, at 17 years old, brings an R. Kelly-like meaning to "The Parent Trap" . Parents might see the Disney-friendly actress in the trailers and bring their young children, but this movie is not for those under high school age girls are called "sluts" and "whores" throughout . However, that doesn't mean anyone who's older than the class of 2004 shouldn't check "Mean Girls" out. Fey, Waters, and the entire cast have made sure the experience will be enjoyable for everyone.
This film is fun. You laugh, you get angry and you enjoy the show literally, there is one! This film is sexy. Who doesn't like girls in mini skirts? Well, OK a few do not for legitimate reasons, but most men do. Sex and the human body is natural, primordial and eternal and this film gives you eye candy sweetness.This film is engaging. You are interested in the characters, the actresses take on their personas well and the plot moves along quickly.
The unthinkable: A good film in this day and age about high school. (by TOMASBBloodhound)
Though my own high school days are well behind me now, this film received enough acclaim that I was convinced to give it a try. Mean Girls did in fact prove to be a rewarding experience. The film made a ton of money and launched some of its young stars into orbit.Our story deals with a previously home-schooled girl Lohan now having to brave a suburban high school for the first time. She is completely clueless as far as what it takes to be cool in this new world, but she is pretty enough to catch the attention of the most popular girls in the school. The "Plastics" as they are <more>
called take the young lady into their world and over time she becomes one of them. The more popular the young lady becomes, the more miserable her life becomes, however.The film is very funny and it hits pretty hard with its depictions of the various cliques at modern high schools. Some would argue that the characters in this film are just stereotypes, but so are most real life high schoolers. Nearly everyone fit into one category or another even back in my school days, but things seem even more fragmented now.Tina Fey has written an intelligent script, and thankfully the film was cast well enough to carry it. Lindsay Lohan is charming, but nothing too exceptional. Rachel McAdams pretty much steals this film, and she is likely the cast member who will have the best career of this bunch. I think it's safe to say her scream toward the end of act 2 is the best I've ever heard in any film.Lacey Chabert is also worth mentioning, and she seems worthy of some better roles in the future. Overall, there did not seem to be any casting problems.Mark Watters keeps things moving along at a brisk pace, and it seems strange to see Lorne Michaels' name in the credits of any film this funny. From what I've heard, the film had to be trimmed of more than a few parts that would have given it in an R-rating. BOO!!!!!! Hard to argue with the box office totals, though! After watching this film, I was reminded of a similar group of popular girls at my high school. They called themselves the Senior Bitch Patrol, and behaved much the same way as the "Plastics." Only back then 88-91 it was mostly about the hair. The bigger the hair, the more popular the girl. All of these girls have gone on to live boring and pointless lives since those days. Go figure....9 of 10 stars for Mean Girls. Too bad I never had any math teachers as pretty as Tina Fey!
I have to admit that despite being a straight, 22 year old guy I have always had a weakness for teen films so I was looking forward to Lindsay Lohan's who really impressed me in 'Freaky Friday' and the much underrated 'Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen' latest.It exceeded my expectations.Lindsay is on great form, instantly likable as Cady and believable both as a regular girl and a "regulation hottie". This girl is one of the best comic actresses of her generation and has created a fully rounded character it is difficult not to root for. Not that she carries <more>
the film alone.Of the adults Tim Meadows does sterling work in translating his character with relatively few lines. Neil Flynn familiar as the Janitor from 'Scrubs' is even better with some great facial expressions as a father as much at sea in suburban America as his daughter. As for Tina Fey... a terrific performance of course and she is still as cute as she was on Saturday Night Live but where she really shines is in the screenplay which sounds real enough at least for a teen film and has some razor sharp areas like Coach Carr's 'lessons' .Of course the key group is the titular Mean Girls themselves - Regina Rachel McAdams , Gretchen Lacey Chabert and Karen Amanda Seyfried . Rachel McAdams creates a memorable High School tyrant, malicous, power mad and cruel but not entirely virtue free. She'd screw you over in a heartbeat if you stepped on her turf, but the nonthreatening Gretchen is allowed some reward for loyalty. Gretchen herself, played by the delectable Lacey Chabert is a character of her own, not just a cardboard minion to follow orders. Neurotic, shallow, desperate, beautiful, loyal and rather uncertain she is perhaps the saddest and most sympathetic of the Plastics - a girl who certainly has the looks and money to make it to the top of the pyramid but who lacked the will or the certainty. Not a problem with Karen Amanda Seyfried who has an admirable certainty of herself and her abilities. In one of the films best lines after a telling off from Regina, Cady tries to comfort her:Cady: You're not stupid, Karen. To which Karen replies thoughtfully without a hint of bitterness or anger :Karen: No, I am, actually. I'm failing everything. Indeed she is. Karen is an airhead, and if not actively proud of it, at least accepting. She doesn't seem cruel herself, possibly because she is simply too shallow and dense, but she doesn't seem a bad person. Which for the second minion Gretchen outranks her to the villainous is quite a remarkable achievement.Finally I must mention Lizzy Caplan and Daniel Franzese as Janice and Damian respectively, the outsiders we are rooting for, in theory. They do good work, though I found them slightly dry next to the endlessly dysfunctional Plastics though that may be something to do with me finding Lacey Chabert much more attractive than Daniel Franzese! Overall a very good piece of work from all concerned. If you like teen movies then you'll find this a very good one. If you don't, well hold your nose and try it anyway, you might be pleasantly surprised!
I liked it at first, but I do not like Lohan at all anymore. (by CuriosityKilledShawn)
I knew nothing of this movie before I saw it. In fact I only went to see because I have a crush on Lindsay Lohan and I really liked her in Freaky Friday. So it was quite a payoff when it turned out to be quite fun film and nothing like the dreadful teen comedies we've suffered too much off in the past five years making love to pies, losing ones' car and certain Scary Movies .The story has Cady Heron go through her first day of school...at sixteen. She's been homeschooled all her life and lived with her parents in the African bush. She has known nothing of the deceitful, <more>
backstabbing and ugly world of high school. Upon arrival she makes friends with a level-headed goth and a fat guy gay. They instruct her on who is naughty, nice and full of vice. The 'in' group of the school are 'The Plastics' because they're so fake , a trio of cheerleaders who make everyone's life hell.The leader is Regina George, the nastiest girl in the universe and at her side and the dumb and airheaded Gretchen Wieners and Karen Smith played by the impossibly cute Amanda Seyfried . In order to take them down Cady must become one of them. She takes great pride in ruining Regina only to take her place. Much like Arnie did in Predator, she became a monster in order to destroy a monster. With loads of observational humor and satire, Mean Girls ends up being a very intelligent movie, sort of a 'Clueless' that's not so nineties. A lot of attention is paid to character and performance, not something hastily thrown together and chucked out there. Originally it ended up with an R rating and had to be toned down. I would have loved to see that cut of the film.Another interesting thing is that I've always though Lindsay Lohan looked like the character of Ginny in Friday the 13th Part 2. So it was weird when the movie was featured in Mean Girls and had Cady startle her pals watching it by bursting through the door as soon as Jason bursts through the window.I will probably buy this on DVD when it comes out and I suggest you see it on the big screen. My showing was pretty packed and everyone seemed to enjoy it a lot.
