This fetch teen comedy follows homeschooled good girl Cady (Lindsay Lohan) as she’s thrust into the dog-eat-dog world of the suburban American high school after a sheltered high school living in Africa. Cady falls in with a couple of lovable outcasts, who enlist her to help sabotage the school’s most feared clique: The Plastics. Lorded over by queen bee Regina George, The Plastics have hair full of secrets, breasts that can tell when it’s going to rain, and a Burn Book filled with the nastiest takedowns of every girl in the school. Cady successfully becomes a card-carrying, pink-wearing Plastic, but is she just playing the part of a mean girl, or has she actually become one? Written by Tina Fey, this generational touchstone has spawned a Broadway musical, an Ariana Grande video, and a seemingly infinite catalogue of classic quotes. How much is it possible to love MEAN GIRLS? The limit does not exist.
Cast: Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Tina Fey, Lacey Chabert
