Originality is never the point of an entertainment like this; the point is that director Mark Waters, who capably guided Lohan through last year's Freaky Friday, has specific marks to hit in Mean Girls, and he hits them with confidence.
It's as if Waters assembled a bunch of performers ... who were born to be thorns in the flesh of the status quo, and instructed them to remain calm at all times and pursue the happy, morally uplifting ending.
