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

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.

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.

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!

This film is definitely a chick flick, but don't let that stop you from watching it. I loved it, plenty of teenage girls love it, and I even got my friend, who violently hates this type of film, to enjoy it. See? It's good!!
Mean Girls is about a girl called Cady who starts high school in America after having lived in Africa for most of her life, and is freaked out by all the cliques, like geeks, jocks, burn outs and most importantly, the snobby, popular Plastics. Regina, the leader of the Plastics, invites Cady to join their group, but when Cady develops a crush on Regina's ex boyfriend, Regina is completely infuriated and 'takes him back' from under Cady's nose. The rest of the film is basically about Cady trying to wreck Regina's life. I would give this film about 100 out of ten. It's really funny, even though the ending has "CHEESE" written all over it.

This is one of the best films I've ever seen. If you're around 15 years old, you'll totally love it! You can really relate to Cady and what she's going through at high school. It seems so real it's untrue! It's also an ace comedy, I laugh every other minute and watch it all the time! It's definitely worth getting.

Mean Girls stars Lindsey Lohan as Cady Heron, a clueless teenager who's been brought up in the African jungle by her zoologist parents, meaning she's never attended high school. Until now. Thrown in at the deep end, she has to quickly learn the 'rules' of high school; where to sit, what to do, who to talk to, who not to talk to... poor Cady ends up eating her lunch in the toilets on more than one occasion.

However, two friendly 'outcasts' soon take her under their wing and help her acclimatise to school life. They point out all the different cliques and warn her away from the Plastics - three pretty, popular, and truly evil girls. Cady soon runs into trouble, though, when the 'Queen Bee' of the Plastics, Regina George, spots her and asks her to sit with them. Regina then decides to befriend Cady. Preferring to be with her 'outcast' friends, Cady isn't sure. But after explaining to Janis and Damian, the three of them decide Cady should pretend to be one of the Plastics in order to discover all their deepest darkest secrets, and bring them down from the inside, punishing them for the torture they've inflicted on their fellow students over the years.

Totally the opposite of the bitchy, air-headed and self-obsessed Plastics, Cady struggles to fit in with them, but tries her best. She is excelling in her classes, particularly Mathematics - her favourite. But there is a distraction in that particular class - in the shape of the gorgeous Aaron Samuels, who also happens to be Regina's ex-boyfriend. Warned off Aaron by Plastic #2, Gretchen, Cady tries to hide her attraction. But soon enough, Regina finds out about her crush on Aaron and encourages Cady to 'go for it' with him - only then to start dating him again and waving the fact in Cady's face.
