“Mean Girls” – Let’s face it, everyone has watched this “dumb” movie about teenagers! However “mean girls” just happens to be a very funny and smart movie about teenagers. It’s probably my favourite out of many, such as Can’t buy me love, The Breakfast Club and 10 things I hate about you.
“Mean Girls” makes #12 on my list is for the following reasons:
1). The Screenplay is written by “Saturday Night Live” Alum, Tina Fey. Fey’s screenplay was brilliant by using comedy to provide Wisdom in surviving High school.
2) Lohan played a convincing naive teenager unaware about how cliques work in High school. The beautiful Rachel McAdams played Regina George, leader of the plastics and a huge bitch! and her sidekicks Chabert and Seyfried,who if anything played eye candy for 97 minutes.
3) Supporting cast: Lizzy Caplan, (Janis) & Daniel Franzese (Damian) Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Tim Meadows provided endless laugh out loud moments throughout this movie.
4) The Soundtrack featured great hits by Missy Elliott, Kelis (Milkshake) and the Christmas classic “Jingle Bell Rock”
5) Mean’s Girls has some of the best quotes of all time!
Final Thoughts: The story took me through a complete journey. This movie brought me to tears from laughing so hard. I hated Regina! but realized why I love Halloween. Mean Girls had this very real feeling to me. I related to this movie and I feel like I’m back in High school every time I watch.
