Zach Fortais-Gomm and Liz Campbell from Realms of Peril and Glory (actual play podcast) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Liz’s choice Mean Girls.
Mean Girls is a 2004 teen comedy written by Tina Fey and directed by Mark (Freaky Friday) Waters. It stars Lindsay Lohan as newcomer Cady, a superb Rachel McAdams as Regina George the rich popular leader of The Plastics, Lacey Chabert as Gretchen Wieners and Amanda Seyfried, in her breakout role as Karen Smith, the sweet but dumb member of The Plastics.
Cady arrives at High School having been homeschooled previously in “Africa” and befriends two outsiders Janis and Damien who convince her to befriend Regina and The Plastics to take revenge. Even if you haven’t seen Mean Girls you will have seen the numerous GIFs and memes (93 and counting) it has spawned – ever worn pink on a Wednesday?!? It has quite possibly become the defining teen film in popular culture.
Despite some aspects having aged like (according to Zach) milk – the casual racism and sexual relationships – questionable whether underage grooming by male teachers was funny even in 2004 but Mean Girls is top tier teen film.
Recommedability scores for Mean Girls were high – with fives from Liz, Zach and Helen and strong scoring across the remaining categories gives a very high overall rating of 4.28.
