I didn't think it was that good or worth watching, but maybe you gotta be one of those teens to get it.

This was clearly girls movie and one most guys would call a chick flick. Girl friend found some humor in it and was encourging me to keep watching this worthless flick, so I did. To me this was a strong two on the rating scale. However it is obvious to me by the other high ratings and strong comments I just did not get it, went right over my head. Most men will avoid, however certain types may find it entertaining. So give it a try what have you to loose other than a couple hours.

There's something about this movie that I can't pull myself away from. It's not great and it comes across as a really lame film about girls getting revenge on each other. It's totally far-fetched and borderline ridiculous. But I like it. There are some very funny moments and it's not loaded down with sex and swearing. Lindsay Lohan is actually really good in this, as are the other girls. The students actually look like high school students, which is rare these days, when thirty-year olds are passed off as high schoolers. I guess you could call this a guilty pleasure of mine, because I find myself watching it whenever it comes on TV. Definitely a good movie to watch if you are a fan of Lindsay Lohan. Also stars Tina Fey and Tim Meadows.

Mean girls a movie on high school teenage drama. Cady Heron a junior high school student moves from Africa where she lived her whole life and was homeschooled. She moves to Toronto and enrolls in Evanston Township High School. Cady makes 2 friends Janis and Damian who tell her about the “mean girls”. But when the leader of mean girl’s aka Regina George invites Cady to be friends with her she pretends to be their friend because Janis tells Cady that she wants to take her revenge from grade 8. From their the journey begins of the mean girl’s destruction. A film directed by, Mark Waters. I really, loved the concept of mean girls the teenager drama. It is totally relatable to us teenager’s lifestyle. The movie had suspense in a lot of places and left the watchers on edge of the seat. Too add more to the movie the maker decided to add a little humor in scenes. Even the actors left no stone unturned in the making of the movie to add life to the characters. That’s why I would rank this movie a 5. And would recommend watching to other teens.

Mean Girls is a story about 16-year-old Cady Heron fitting into her brand new high school. There, she tries to fit in with the popular girls known as "the Plastics." This is one of my favourite movies. It's hilarious and relatable. There are so many iconic scenes, such as the Plastic's Jingle Bell Rock performance. The acting is great. There are tons of memorable lines, from "Is butter a carb?" to "She doesn't even go here!" Plus, it sends the message that we're all important. We are all more than the cliques we're in. My friends and I all love it. This is definitely a movie I would recommend. @endoplasmicreticulum of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This early 2000s comedy chronicles the ridiculousness of being a teenager in high school as well as being a part of all the different cliques. Cady is entering high school for the very first time after being homeschooled in Africa all her life. It is there where she meets Karen, Regina, and Gretchen, the most popular and meanest girls at school. Cady’s friends Janis and Damian tell her to spy on them and find out what they are really like. However, soon enough Cady is in too deep and begins changing as a person herself. This movie is hilarious, honest, and crazy at times which makes it such a comedic classic. I would rate this film 4.5/5 stars and recommend it to those looking for a laugh and a way to make fun of their past selves.

Lindsey Lohan at her former balanced self (before the drugs, family opera, etc.) does a good job playing a home-schooled geek dropped into a vicious clique of hot girls. She turns her back on the offbeat artists and sharpens her own claws as the popular girls battle for hot supremacy in the narrow confines of high school. Dismaying to hear the self-internalized misogyny as the girls name call each other with "slut" and "whore". Tina Fey plays peacemaker in a little too glib of an ending.

She doesn't even go here!

This Tina Fey classic is still absolute gold! Revisit this one any time you need a good, solid laugh.

VERY GOOD 2004 comedic plus glimpse into contemporary high school drama. No doubt high schoolers interact quite a bit different post 2000 than we did half a century before and it made for an interesting view for older me.

Never saw when it originally came out but a lot better than I thought would be! Typical ehh high school plot, but great casting, dialogue, cut/imaginative scenes (not sure what that style is called but i.e. the school being like the African range)
