Mean Girls

Mean Girls
Starring: Lindsay Lohan, Tina Fey
Written by: Tiny Fey
The title speaks the truth
*** Stars
Stepping aside from Disney pictures, Lindsay Lohan hooks up with former Saturday Night Live star
Tina Fey. Fey, writing the screenplay, found the true fact of high school life and that is it isn't always nice and innocent.
Lohan plays Cady Harren, a innocent 16 year old that moved from Africa into America. She gets homeschooled throughout her life and now makes a big step into a publoc high school. She meets the popular girls in school, AKA "The Plastics". Consisting of them are Regina George (Rachel McAdams), Gretchen Wieners (Lacey Chabert), and Karen Smith (Amanda Seyfried). They are the girls that everyone thinks are hot but inside they hate them all. Regina, being the ring leader, invites Cady to sit with them at lunch and share her experiences with the girls. They soon become friends and stay together until Regina hits on the guy Cady likes. Cady soon realizes that deep down she hates Regina. So Cady does everything possible to ruin Regina's life but still think they are friends so she can get information. This sparks a tension between all the girls in school. Eventually everyone will start to hate eachother.
This is the real version of high school with its "dumb-blonde" like atmosphere and its hatred towards one other. Welcome to reality high school.
