Now mean girls centres around a 16 year old Cady Heron who has been private schooled all her life by her parents in Africa but is then enroled in public school for the first time. There she struggles to understand the complicated world of people her age and fit in to a social group. She soon meets Janis Ian and Damien ‘who is too gay to function’ and they quickly become friends but they warn Cady to stay away from the exclusive socialite group ‘the plastics’. Later Janis following her vendetta encourages Cady to infiltrate the plastics and take down the Queen Bee Regina George and her pair of loyal ditzy henchmen Karen Smith and Gretchen Wieners. The plot of mean girls is ‘so fetch’ but it is the moral life lessons and quotable dialogue that makes this film better than even Glen Coco. ‘So how do I begin to explain mean girls? Mean girls is flawless, I hear its insured for $10,000, I hear it sponsors car commercials in Japan and one time it hit me in the face.....it was awesome’.
Mean girls also taught us a lot of life lessons like how you shouldn’t ask people why they are white, not dating your friend’s ex-boyfriend is like a law of feminism and that even if everybody hates you, you are failing all your exams and you are personally victimised by Regina George you can still become Prom Queen if you push someone everyone hates even more in front of a bus. Mean girls also taught us important lessons about school like how ‘Brutus was just as pretty and smart as Caesar and we should totally just stab Caesar’ and ‘if the limit never approaches anything then the limit does not exist’. I think the reason I have watched mean girls like 5 times this week isn’t just because I am avoiding studying ( except for English of course) I think it is because soon we ‘won’t even go here’ and ,as the last days approach us and we become increasingly....well lets just say frustrated with one another, it is important to not let this comically exaggerated masterpiece of what teenage girls are really like come true. We should let each other wear hoopy earrings even if it is our thing because it is a pretty ‘grool’ thing to do and ‘I think my father the inventor of toaster strudel would be happy to hear about it’.
