Mean Girls [DVD]  [Region 1]
Region 1 USA/CA (
In this survival-of-the-fittest teen comedy, high school is a dangerous jungle seething with teenagers who prey on each other like wild animals. The nonstop jokes are hilariously rewarding as they exaggerate adolescent vanity and satirize political correctness issues like race, class, and homosexuality. Here, the Plastics are the most popular girls in school. They wrote the rule book on Girl World, like always wearing pink on Tuesdays. And they're mean. So when pretty new girl Cady (Lindsay Lohan) arrives in school, the first thing they do is make fun of her. Then they try to win her over. Cady is torn between social cliques. She befriends the punky rebels Janis (Lizzy Caplan) and Damian (Daniel Franzese). But the guy Cady wants to date is friends with the Plastics--Regina (Rachel McAdams), Gretchen (Lacey Chabert), and Karen (Amanda Seyfriend)--so she has to be resourceful. Problem is, the two groups hate each other. Just trying to fit in, Cady jumps through hoops for the Plastics and becomes a mean girl in the process. Though her transformation is radical, when the final act of meanness is done, she learns a few valuable lessons.
SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE writer Tina Fey contributes the script and also stars as a teacher, quietly smirking at her own jokes throughout the antics. Directed by FREAKY FRIDAY's Mark Waters, MEAN GIRLS doesn't miss a beat, following the faithful formula of teen fare such as SIXTEEN CANDLES and HEATHERS. The soundtrack features songs by Blondie, Missy Elliot, Pink, The Donnas, and Janis Ian.

"MEAN GIRLS has the same fancifully dead-on tone as 1995's CLUELESS."
"[T]art and often charming....With a lively and talented young cast headed by the cherubic Lindsay Lohan."
New York Times
"[A] slick, enjoyable film....The dialogue is witty and sharp..."
Sight and Sound
"[Mark Waters] confirms that he has a fine studio touch. He keeps the story light and bright, and he brings out real comic performances from his cast, including newcomer Seyfried, who plays her ditz with Judy Holliday charm..."
Los Angeles Times
"The movie is full of good ideas....Look behind the glasses to Fey's invaluable expressions of womanly deadpan dismay for advice on all things modern-girl."
"Fey subverts formula to find comic gold. She's a brash new voice in movie comedy. Boy, do we need her now."
"[The film] sidesteps a lot of cliches, goes for real humor instead of gags, and even contains some wisdom."
