Mean Girls Reviews

October 3, 2016
Fizzes with peculiarly feminine evil, of the kind that comes dripping through a pillowy smirk garnished with baby-pink lipgloss.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 24, 2011
The best of the recent clutch of teen movies, Mean Girls also represents a return to form for the filmmaking wing of Saturday Night Live.
December 26, 2010
Mature but often-hilarious teen comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
September 19, 2010
Lindsay Lohan is more likely to die before 30 than to land another lead role as suited to her (likely squandered) talent. Tina Fey's script is an observant equal-opportunity offender about how high school remains a jungle of hormones and haughtiness.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
June 19, 2009
Like Heathers with the edges filed down a bit...the kind of smooth, clever (and rare) entertainment that critics and audiences can all enjoy, guilt-free. [Blu-ray]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 29, 2009
A very intelligent, often funny, well written and clever satire on high school and its status quo...
April 18, 2009
The film boasts a solidly female cast, and its' a well cast film at that.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 18, 2008
A lively and upbeat teen comedy that grapples with social dynamics, Mean Girls is fresh, spicy and laden with plenty of tang.
December 27, 2007
It's not a classic, but it's an above-average and refreshingly smart teen comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 27, 2007
It announces the arrival of Tina Fey into the ranks of smart screenwriters.

September 29, 2006
Props to Tina Fey for being the first cast member since Mike Myers in Wayne's World to survive her movie being produced by Saturday Night Live boss Lorne Michaels -- and not also have her movie completely suck.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 24, 2006
Happily, Fey and Waters gently tweak the studios' usual high-gloss caricature of adolescence and aim for acutely hilarious and surprisingly empathic sociology.
May 26, 2006
The stinging wit of first-time screenwriter Tina Fey gives Mean Girls a zest and zing few high school comedies ever muster.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
December 6, 2005
It is precisely intelligence, and Fey's refusal to talk down to her audience, that elevates Mean Girls above most other teen movies out there.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 4, 2005
Nails the "survival of the fittest" mentality that permeates high school social life.
October 1, 2004
Has the truth-exposing agenda of Election and almost as much bite.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
September 29, 2004
The distributors didn't try to rook impatient people by first releasing a "Plain Jane" edition then waiting six months to release this one.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
