Summary

After being homeschooled in Africa for almost her entire life, Cady Heron (Lohan) is surprised to see that she is a hit with The Plastics, the A-list girl clique at her new school. That is until she makes the mistake of falling for the ex-boyfriend of alpha Plastic Regina George (McAdams).

Is The Plot Interesting?

I personally loved the plot; I thought it was an exaggerated look at high school which was, most of the time, what made it so funny. If you love all of the high school drama/comedy movies, you’ll love Mean Girls.

Mean Girls 1

Is The Acting Good?

The best part of the movie, beside the characters, in my opinion is the acting. The way some of the lines are said is just incredible and always adds to whatever mood that particular scene was trying to achieve.

Is The Directing Good?

I’ve seen a few of Mark Waters’ movies and although this is definitely his best movie so far, he has done a few good movies over the years that I’ve enjoyed. I really loved the way he added a certain layer of depth to the characters.

Mean Girls 2

Is The Cinematography Good?

The cinematography wasn’t really something I noticed if I’m honest. And after watching it again, I can’t say I noticed it then either. I think the cinematography does a good enough job for what it needed to do.

Is It Worth Watching?

Mean Girls is one of the most re-watchable movies I’ve seen in a long time. There’s always things that you pick up on during repeat viewings, which I think is one of the reasons why it’s so good.
