Review: Mean Girls
Starring: Lindsay Lohan, Jonathan Bennett, Rachel McAdams
Length: 97 min.
IMDB Summary: Cady Heron is a hit with The Plastics, the A-list girl clique at her new school, until she makes the mistake of falling for Aaron Samuels, the ex-boyfriend of alpha Plastic Regina George.
Although the premise is decent, Mean Girls is ultimately a flop due to the film's reliance on dirty jokes to reel in the laughter. Except for Heron and a few minor characters, the main characters of this movie are--surprise!--some of the meanest girls in the movie world. This film seems to forget that high school revolves around more than snobby cliques and slutty parties. If you don't mind hanging out with some unabashedly bratty kids for 97 minutes, then you may enjoy Mean Girls, which combines all the suffering of high school into a chick flick available at the rental store.
There is plenty of sexual innuendo, as well as an implied sex scene and a party involving skimpy costumes. Also, some moderate language.
