Product Description

Cady Heron is a cultural blank slate when she first sets foot on the grounds of North Shore High School in a small town outside of C hicago, Illinois. After living in Africa, Cady has no idea how "wild" things can be in civilization until she crosses paths with one of the meanest species of all, the "Queen Bee," who at this school is the cool and calculating Regina George. But Cady doesn't just cross paths with this Queen Bee--she really stings her when she falls for Regina's ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels. Now Regina is set to sting back by pretending to still like Aaron so he won't go out with Cady, all the while pretending to be her friend. With no choic e but to use the same M.O. to stay in the game, the "Girl World" one-upmanship escalates until the entire school gets dragged into a first-class mean-fest.

From Amazon.co.uk

The cutting wit of Tina Fey (the first female head writer for US comedy breeding ground Saturday Night Live) brilliantly fuses pop culture and smart satire. Fey wrote Mean Girls, in which a formerly home-schooled girl named Cady (Lindsay Lohan) gets dropped into the sneaky, vicious world of the Plastics, three adolescent glamour-girls who dominate their public high school's social heirarchy. Cady first befriends a couple of art-punk outsiders who persuade her to infiltrate the Plastics and destroy them from within--but power corrupts, and Cady soon finds the glory of being a Plastic to be seductive. Mean Girls joins the ranks of Clueless, Bring It On, and Heathers, cunning movies that use the hormone-pressurized high school milieu to put the dark impulses of human nature--ambition, envy, lust, revenge--under a comic microscope. Fey manages to skewer everyone without forgetting the characters' hapless humanity; it's a dazzling and delightful balancing act. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars finally, a realistic high school movie 14 Nov 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This film fantastically shows a side to highschool life most of us recognise and can relate to - whatever highschool clique you were/are in, theres characters that you feel like you just know, and some that will suprise you.
This film is full of hilarious moments, and occassionaly has the heart warming and cringe-worthy moments that are all bound to keep a grin permanently on your face throughout the entire film. Also the realism of it makes you feel more for the characters and the situations. I think this is Lindsay Lohans best film yet and will probably be to her what for example edward scissorhands is to johnny depp - forever loved and remembered :)
Its a fantastic film for people of all ages - my lil sister, myself (aged 17) and our mum viewed the film all together, and we all loved it.
The soundtrack is also addictively wonderful - particularly the song built like this by samantha ronson, so check out the soundtrack as well!

4.0 out of 5 stars David Attenborough meets Clueless 15 May 2005
Format:DVD
'The setting - a mall in Illonois, when the animals are in heat. They gather around the watering hole, showing signs of affection and signs of aggresion to their counterparts. The different species stay apart from one another. The animals are watched over consistently by their leaders, pampered and preened.'
Fine, so you may be forgiven for thinking this is a review of Wildlife on One. But this is one of the many subtle messages sent across during Mean Girls. This film has been dismissed by many as a 'chick flick.' Those narrow-minded people are wrong.
Tina Fey took this idea from the book, Queenbees and Wannabees, a factual look at high school cliques. Fey wrote, and starred in, this comedic,fictional look at today's youth.
It could almost be my high school she is reviewing. Every school has a clique problem. Cady is a New Girl. Home-schooled in Africa from the age of four, she takes her fist steps into high school at sixteen.
Northshore is divided into groups, as shown on Janice's map of the cafeteria. There are "the J. V. Jocks, Asian Nerds, Cool Asians, Girls who Eat their Feelings, Girls who eat Nothing at All ..." and the list goes on. Every school has them. I had the displeasure of watching this film with my extremely schocked mother, who recognised her three children in the characters. Alright, so the ideas are over the top, and the supporting cast are occasionally over-played, but the idea is spot-on. All teenagers are the same, they all do act like animals, everybody gets grounded, evrybody has house parties, everybody has a crush on her best friends boyfriend.
But the most obvious things about this film are the relationships between characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mean girls.. 28 Dec 2005
Format:DVD
I must have watched this film over 25 times.. literally!
I feel the beginning of the film is better than the second half, as when the film end, she's still a 'mean girl' but it doesn't dispute that.
This is the ultimate 'chick flick', for those teenage girls out there who enjoy and appreciate a good movie.
Well written and directed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely funny film. 16 Mar 2005
Format:DVD
Mean girls is a film that will appeal not just to teenagers but to anyone with a sense of humour...particularly if you like your humour black.
Lindsay Lohan stars as a young girl who has been taught at home all of her life and is joining high school for the first time. Cady and her parents have been living in Africa and she soon realises that being at school isn't all that different. There are clear demarkations betwen the various species such as the 'plastics', the 'geeks' and so on.
The film has some hilarious moments as Cady tries to find her niche in this jungle. As with most 'teen' movies, there is a moral at the end but thankfully this isn't saccharine in any way. Great fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mean Girls- what a great film! 24 Oct 2004
Format:DVD
When first sitting down to watch this I didn't expect a lot from it, I thought it would be your average teen movie. How wrong I was. I was hooked from the start and found it very enjoyable to watch.
There are some very good performances in this from Tina Fey, Lyndsay Lohan and Rachael McAdams to name just three.
The special features on the DVD are also very good with a gag reel, trailer, and featurettes among other things.
This film is well worth buying, definately good value for money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mean Girls / Clueless 1 Oct 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
These films seperatly are excellent and to combine them is a mastermind idea. I loved clueless and when i saw mean girls at the cinema it was so funny and well acted, although it is not one for those who aren't into chick flicks. Clueless was on t.v. the other day and i had forgotten how funny it was until i was reminded and i am so glad i was i have ordered this combo so i never forget it again. Mean Girls is a brilliant one to watch with a group of girl mates on a chick flick fest as it will have everyones enjoyment in mind.
