My early career was in teaching, writing, producing and directing for theatre, comedy and impro shows. Now I'm a professional creative person. Mostly high-end branding, strategy, writing, editing and digital content creation.
Can you believe it's been 12 years since Cady and 'The Plastics' sassed their ways into our hearts and the lexicon in the movie Mean Girls? The hilarious comedy movie is back for a new generation to enjoy at a free screening at Logan Hyperdome Library. On the fifteenth of December from 5pm until 7.30pm, the M15 plus rated film will entertain the late teens who are smart enough to book in early.
Mean Girls is a relatable comedy with wickedly quotable quotes, great early naughties fashions, and LiLo at her pinnacle. The script was written by the supremely funny Tina Fey, based on the book Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and Other Realities of Adolescence by Rosalind Wiseman. The cast is packed with talent, aside from the aforementioned Lindsay Lohan, it stars Rachel McAdams, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Amanda Seyfried and Tim Meadows.
The morality tale deals with high school cliques, romances, and bullying, but it does it in a way that doesn't feel too preachy or authoritarian. Cady (Lohan) comes to high school for the first time after having been home schooled. We watch as she learns the ropes of high school life and all the trappings that go along with it. She's easily influenced and manipulated by her peers as she attempts to simply fit in with a world that, until now, she's never experienced.
Mean Girls is a great watch for girls and boys aged fifteen and over. Just remember, on Tuesdays we wear pink, and you really need to stop trying to make 'fetch' happen or you'll wind up in the 'Burn Book'.
