Probably the best high school movie of all time. The script is phenomenal, the casting is superb and the movie has reached such a high status, that few movies in the 21st century has reached. Tina Fey truly understands the high school social dynamics. Lindsay Lohan is the perfect choice for the leading role. She is a terrific actress and is rather underrated. She is relatable and has great comedic timing and is just so beautiful. The actress who plays Cady has an important role which is to get so wrapped up in popularity that she literally embodies Regina, doesn't act like her but becomes her and Lindsay does this effortlessly which not many actresses can do successfully. Rachel McAdams as Regina is truly an incredible performance. She has to be easy to hate but the audience should also be able to admire her like people do "the popular girl in school" even though she is superficial and mean, and Rachel has that quality in her. Lacey Chabert, Amanda Seyfried, Lizzy Caplan, and Daniel Franzese are all comedic delights and are dedicated to their roles. Overall, a phenomenal movie.

amazing take on the drama and bitterness of high school girls, funny, meaningful, and a true classic. would watch again.
I just watched this movie and realized how relevant it still is! It addresses typical teen girl experiences so well, and brings to life every average teen girl's fantasy of humiliating the unkind popular girl.
Mean Girls is loaded with humorous, quotable lines, and continues to draw an audience because the film addresses typical teen experiences, and reminds us of our own high school experience, experiences that we can relive through the film. The film depicts what it is like to be an outcast and the victim of gossip. One example of an outcast is Cady's friend Janis, who was the victim of gossip, bullying, and rumors, and it is easy for average teenage girls to identify with Cady and Janis because both are on the outside socially. girls like this are the target audience of this film. As Cady is learning the rules of high school and its herd mentality, Damian and Janis, who are also outsiders, act as Cady's tour guides (and ours) through high school, making maps of the cafeteria seating and going in depth about the school's division-and every school has its divisions. Every school has a Regina George and every school has its own "Plastics" and the average teenager is intimidated by these types and every average teenager wants to see them fall.
Tina Fey's talent as a writer comes alive in the film with many funny lines to quote, but the great acting is what really makes these lines comes to life. of particular note the actress that play the plastics, (Rachel McAadms, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert) they did a great job depicting the average teenage mean girl.
This is the type of film people see more than once. Teens will probably be quoting this movie for years to come.
Maybe it's my mid-2000s nostalgia shining through, but Mean Girls has always been one of my favorite comedies of that decade, if not of all time. There are a few overly campy moments that are a bit of the character to the rest of the film, but it doesn't take much away overall.
It was bad I kept being immature
This funny and over the top high school comedy does provide a number of decent laughs, more Jan I would have expected honestly. Plus who doesn’t love the politically incorrect humor. Each of the leading girls did a good job as well
Mark Waters' "Mean Girls" (2004) stands out from the countless other teen movies of the early 2000s, namely due to its difference in its treatment of women. While Fey's comedy is hilarious in its execution, and the film's premise is somewhat unique, what really makes "Mean Girls" special is its refusal to conform to the same misogynistic practices of other teen movies, like "American Pie" (1999) for example. Instead of valuing sex and social status above all else, "Mean Girls" emphasizes friendship and staying true to oneself, and it does so in a particularly feminist way.
Instead of idolizing the "popular" clique and celebrating vanity like the male-targeted teen films of the early 2000s, "Mean Girls" takes those things and ridicules them with ironic and absurd statements like "On Wednesdays we wear pink," which not only makes the popular girls look foolish, but it also makes the male writers of the similar earlier teen movies look foolish as well, as they express the same superficial idealisms that "Mean Girls" so brilliantly makes a mockery of.
The release of "Mean Girls" marks a point in time where female voices such as Fey's finally began to be heard on the big screen, and the film's overall positive reception is a testament to the fact that conventional (and often misogynist) tropes need not be included in a comedy for a commercial and critical success.
"Mean Girls" acts as a vessel for female teenage viewers to identify with a character who is not the object of a teenage boy's affection/gaze, and actually flips that concept on its head with the character Aaron Samuels, whose real sole purpose is to act as eye candy for the protagonist Cady. By subverting this sexist concept, and reversing it back onto the male filmmakers who employ it, "Mean Girls" manages to successfully critique on the one hand teenage cliques, and on the other hand the Hollywood cinema industry in its entirety.
A high school movie that stays funny though the whole runtime with amazing performances and a message that sticks the landing
Cringy boring but easy story to follow ... a few funny moments in there as well. Actors are ok but dont expect a deep story at all
