I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.

There are moments in this movie where the great movie it could've been peek out... They're fleeting, here, but they're worth savoring, and they happen often enough to make it worth your while.

This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. You have to go and see this on the big screen.

But since we own it on DVD every holiday we put in and get some peanut butter, jam, chips and nanaimo bars and watch it again And it always amuses. My hubby's body type is women with meat on their bones (like, guess who har har har) but he patiently watches this tale of silly schoolgirls with us. What a man

This is one of the best comedies of all time and a rare moment in film history, when a comedy has all the right ingredians and everything sits just right. This film has discovered great talents and has become a cult phenomenon, with its brilliant script and acting ("boo you whore" "that is so fetch"). This movie worked because of Tina Fay's brilliant writing, and how the film does not take itself too seriously, while actually being more realistic and close to home than it should. A classic that stands the test of time, still fresh and relevant 20 years after its making!

The movie "Mean Girls" (2004) is one that is memorable and makes everyone laugh. It is a comedy that especially attracts the younger crowd, but it is a movie that everyone from young to old can enjoy. It is about a girl from Africa named Cady Heron who comes to America for high school. She meets friends who are not popular and they tell her and warn her to not be friends with "The Plastics", who consist of three obnoxious, popular girls (Regina George, Gretchen, and Karen). However, she ends up becoming friends with them. Also, she becomes friends with a boy named Aaron in her math class. At first, Cady sees "The Plastics" as a nice, new group of friends but later finds out their true identity and the reason behind their name. Also, Cady is somewhat attracted to Aaron, who is also Regina's ex-boyfriend so this causes some tension. Everything turns out to be a disaster at the end because of all the drama between Regina and Cady. Cady gets in huge trouble and finally realizes that this is not what she is supposed to be like and that the "friends" she has been around have been a bad influence on her. She turns back to the old, lovable Cady that she was before getting involed with "The Plastics". The movie concludes with Cady being back with her original, nerdy group and "The Plastics" no longer being around because all three girls went in their own directions. I recommend everyone to watch this film because it is a classic teen drama/comedy movie that is hilarious to watch, and it can be watched over and over without getting boring. It will make you laugh the whole time because some of the things in the movie are super dumb and stupid that it's funny. Also, many high schoolers enjoy this movie because of the relatablity to their own high school life (drama, clicks, bulling, trying to fit in, etc). The actors in the movie are prominent actors in Hollywood. They include actors who have been in the entertainment industry for a while: Lindsay Lohan, Rachael McAdams, Jonathan Bennet, and Tiny Fey. Overall, this movie is one of my favorites because it is super funny to watch and always keeps you awake. Since I don't watch movies often, I fall asleep in them. So for me not to fall asleep proves how this movie must be a least a little interesting. This movie received mostly positive reviews, but there are a few negative reviews that criticize this movie. In May 2014, moonmonday wrote a negative review that claimed that Mean Girls is a try hard of other more successful teen movies such as "Heathers" (1988) and 'Jawbreaker" (1999). However, "Mean Girls" is not comparable because the plot of all three movies are totally different. I searched up Heathers and Jawbreaker and both have someone being murdered or committing suicide. This might give way to why they are both rated R while "Mean Girls" is rated PG-13. I think that moonmonday is just being prejudiced and likes more inaprropriate movies. He/she also might like the two movies mentioned but others don't. Heathers has similar reviews to Mean Girls (~7.0/10 reviews on IMD). On the other hand, Jawbreaker has only 5.5/10. If you ask anyone if they heard of any of these three movies, the majority will say they heard of Mean Girls. Another point that this negative review claims is that it is mean to the openly gay student, Janis Ian, when the movie should support this minority. However, the final outcome is that the protagonist, Cady, becomes good friends with her. This inaccurate review of the 2004 movie "Mean Girls" just is one person who dislikes this movie and provides reasons why they think that this movie is worthy of 1/10 stars on IMD. But, this does not reflect the movie at all. It should have at least 9/10 stars because the movie provides the lesson of always being true to yourself and not caring about what others think of you. It has a unique storyline and is filled with great acting by greater actors. Mean Girls is a have to watch movie that you can watch with your friends and family anytime.

We rated this film 8/10.Mean Girls is a hilarious girly comedy. It is full of funny moments, and it will always be a favourite film.The film teaches us the importance of staying true to yourself and to not get carried away in gossip and dramas, and what damage backstabbing can cause.This is a family friendly film (although some scenes are not best suited for young viewers).
