Raised in the African bush, Cady Heron thinks she understands ‘survival of the fittest’. The law of the jungle takes on a whole new meaning when she enters a public high school for the first time and falls prey to the psychological warfare and unwritten social rules that teenage girls face today.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
Yes, it's made for teenagers. I liked it. Lindsay Lohan is talented and has the charisma to carry a film, tho everyone in this is good. It's got a musical number, too, which rounds out this picture and makes it more entertaining the same way the dance number in Pulp Fiction does. I watch 1 or 2 films a year on Netflix, this is my Netflix indulgence. Written by Tina Fey and produced by Lorne Michaels. 3.6*
"The Canyons" was one of the first movies I saw in theaters after moving to the Bay Area. It wasn't great, but I've always had an affinity for the tragic and troubled Lindsay Lohan. I managed to escape the aughts without seeing "Mean Girls," so it was a pleasure to visit it now. Thanks to a game cast and a truly hilarious screenplay from Tina Fey, this is a stellar teen comedy in the tradition of "Clueless."
A guilty pleasure... I need more of these in my life! That dance scene totally cracked me up and Regina George has joined the pantheon of my favourite film villains! (Not really, but you get the point.)
La razón por la que "Mean Girls" se corre de la media de las películas que retratan la adolescencia norteamericana (todo un subgénero posmoderno) es por ese vitalizador coqueto constante con la comedia mas corrosiva y, sobre todo, por presentar a sus personajes como personas bidimensionales, con conflictos estúpidos pero reales. El apellido del director es Waters, y eso, por lo menos en el cine, siempre fue bueno...
