Mean Girls

  Mean Girls is Lindsay Lohan's latest chick-flick about a girl who lived in Africa for much of her life, and was homeschooled. Now she's come back to America, as her mother has gotten tenure with a college, and is going to public high school for the first time in her life.

  At age 16 she's a junior in a high school where cliques are the catch of the day. Fitting into any high school is hard enough, but one where everyone is classified as something doesn't make life any easier. It also doesn't help that she has no clue about any American culture. Among the many cliques are the "girls who eat their emotions," "girls who dont eat anything," and, of course, "the plastics."

  The "plastics" are the elite of the elite, three girls who dominate this small-time high school. Of course, the "plastics" aren't the smartest girls around, and as such, this movie quickly turns into a fight. You also can't forget the infamous "burn book" where the "plastics" write all their insults. Bet you can't guess what happens when this book gets into the hands of the entire school!

  All in all, this movie has some great comedy, and a lot of randomness as well. It's definitely a chick-flick, with a romantic subplot, like most comedies these days. A fairly good movie overall. Rated PG-13, I give it Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
