Movie Review: Mean Girls, Directed by Mark Waters

Title: Mean Girls
Rating: 10/10 Stars
IMDB Summary: Cady Heron is a hit with The Plastics, the A-list girl clique at her new school, until she makes the mistake of falling for Aaron Samuels, the ex-boyfriend of alpha Plastic Regina George.
Review: Cady Heron is about to start her first ever year of school. Homeschoool all her life, she is nervous, but she certainly doesn't expect a hostile welcome from the students or getting told off for things such as reading ahead by the teachers. This soon changes when she receives an invitation to sit with queen bee Regina George and her clique, the Plastics.

Mean Girls tells a story of something that could happen to anyone. I really related to it because I also went through something similar to Cady's story. The movie has a really empowering message and I think anyone can appreciate the sincere message behind the tale. It is true that girls tend to experience this more but regardless of identity this movie is one you all need to watch.

Cady's place in the story isn't the only one with a strong message. Regina also has many morals attached to her voice, and she's not the only one. Each and every character in Mean Girls is attributed to a common stereotype such as outcast, jock, queen bee, etc. Unlike their stereotypes, they stray from what one usually associated with their stereotype would do and focus on the unknown and unlikely, such as the chances of a queen bee becoming a nice girl.

One of the main themes is "Anything can happen. You just have to be yourself." After many struggles and lessons learned time and time again, Mean Girls ends on a positive and they all get what they want once they accept their true selves.
