Mean Girls

September 15, 2015

MGsRaised in the African bush country by her zoologist parents, Cady Heron thinks she knows all about the ‘survival of the fittest’. When her family relocates to the USA, Cady finds herself attending a high school in suburban Illinois, where she gets a crash course in the various sub-strata of the student body. Cady finds herself embraced by a clique of rich and popular girls known to outsiders as ‘the Plastics’ led by Regina George. When Cady falls for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels, though, the Queen Bee is stung and Cady must face a level of vengeful behaviour for which years in the jungle never prepared her.

Themes: identity, friendship, priorities.

In the scene where Cady was asked if her “muffin was buttered”, the line was originally going to be, “Is your cherry popped?” The same goes for the girl who “made out with a hot dog” this was going to be “masturbated with a hot dog”. These were omitted in order for the film to gain a PG 13+ rating instead of a R

This movie is based upon the book “Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and Other Realities of Adolescence” by Rosalind Wiseman, even though it is a non-fiction parental self-help guide with no narrative at all.
