Now it’s basically a rite of passage for a 90s baby to have seen Mean Girls and be obsessed with it. It’s sort of a cult film for our era and let’s face it, it’s brought us some great actresses (Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, not so much you Lindsay Lohan!). I mean it was never going to win any Oscars but it’s a fun film filled with quotes and it’s the perfect girls’ night in movie of choice! It’s probably the Lohan’s best work though and she did some great movies back in the day: The Parent Trap, Just My Luck, Freaky Friday, Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.
As much as it is a film about a group of mean girls, there are some really important messages in there! I was just starting at an all girls’ secondary school when it came out in 2004 and I remember talking to my friends about it and how much we used to watch it at sleepovers, pretty much every weekend! Let’s take a look at some important lessons that Mean Girls taught us:
1. Be careful of how you choose your friends.
2. Don’t be afraid to be the smart girl.
Playing dumb is really stupid and if a guy doesn’t like you because you’re intelligent? He’s not the right guy for you.
5. Revenge is not a good idea.
6. The rules of feminism should always be adhered.
8. Being a feminist is cool.
9. Always apologise if you know you’re wrong.
So to celebrate 14 years of its release on the official Mean Girls day, it is only right with it being a Wednesday that we wear pink and spend our evening watching this classic! You could also try giving the Broadway soundtrack of the musical a listen; it is amazing! I’m really hoping for a West End transfer of it in 2020!
