Theatrical release poster
Mean Girls is a 2004 film directed by Mark Waters , written by (and co-starring) Tina Fey, and starring Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, and Lizzy Caplan. The film also features several Saturday Night Live cast members, including Tina Fey, Tim Meadows, Ana Gasteyer, and Amy Poehler. It has been praised as being Lindsay Lohan's break-out film role.[1]
Director Mark Waters described the movie as "Clueless meets Heathers,"[2] the latter of which was written by his brother, Daniel Waters. Mean Girls is based on the non-fiction book Queen Bees and Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman, which describes how female high school social cliques operate, and the effect they can have on girls. Similar to its inspirations Clueless and Heathers, the film was a sleeper hit, and generated much discussion upon its release on high schoolcliques and bullying, despite the film being a light-hearted approach to those subjects.

Plot
Now living in an affluent area of suburbanChicago (Evanston, Illinois), Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) has been raised by her zoologist parents in Africa. At age 16, her family moves to America, so Cady must attend a public high school, after having being home schooled by her parents her whole life. On the first day, she is surprised by all the rules and restrictions that high school has. She struggles to fit in, but meets two students, Janis Ian (Lizzy Caplan, a reference to singer Janis Ian), a rebellious girl and also a Lebanese American[3], and Damian (Daniel Franzese), her "too-gay-to-function" friend, who decide to show her around and offer her insight into the cliques and hierarchy of the school. At the top of the social ladder are a trio of girls known as "The Plastics," a group of popular and spiteful girls who rule the roost: the ditsy Karen Smith (Amanda Seyfried), the nosy Gretchen Wieners (Lacey Chabert) and the acid-tongued Regina George (Rachel McAdams). Regina is considered the "Queen Bee" of the school and is adored by all the other girls in the school, who hold her in such high esteem that even being punched in the face by her is considered an honor. Janis detests Regina, which Cady later finds out stems from the fact that Regina spread rumors about her sexuality in middle school. When they were younger, Regina and Janis used to be best friends. But when Regina called her a lesbian, their friendship ended, and the two have hated each other ever since.
One day, Cady is invited to sit with The Plastics at lunch in the cafeteria where seating is important and restricted to cliques. Afterwards, Janis and Damian convince Cady to eat lunch with them again, so she can report back to them everything The Plastics say and do. For example, Cady is introduced to "The Burn Book" in which insulting comments are made about the other girls. At the same time, Cady develops a crush on Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett). Gretchen and Karen tell her that Aaron was Regina's -boyfriend, and therefore, he is off-limits. Although Gretchen promises to keep Cady's crush a secret, she tells Regina. Devising a plan, Regina offers to help Cady win Aaron. During their calculus class, he invites her to a Halloween party. At the party, Regina finds Aaron and kisses him. Cady is infuriated and decides to leave The Plastics. Janis, however, stops her, convincing Cady to keep hanging out with them so that they can get revenge.
Regina wishes to lose a few pounds, but Cady gives her Swedish "Kälteen" bars, telling Regina they would help her lose weight very quickly. In reality, the bars cause weight gain, and were used by Cady's mother to help poor children in Africa gain weight. Cady also begins to speak to Aaron once again, pretending that she is horrible at math when in actuality, she is quite good and is asked to join the Mathletes several times. Finally, Cady is able to manipulate Gretchen and Karen into getting angry at Regina, so that eventually Regina is kicked out of The Plastics.
However, Cady has begun to act exactly like Regina, much to Janis' displeasure. As soon as The Plastics kick Regina out of their group, Cady becomes the most popular girl at the school. She throws a small get-together at her house that turns into a huge party. Slightly drunk, Cady tries to make a move on Aaron, but he sees through her, calling her a "clone" of Regina and rejecting her advances. She loses her friendship with Janis and Damian, who now hate her nearly as much as they hate Regina. Regina discovers that "Kälteen" bars make her put on weight, which has been ruining her life (at exclusive clothing store '1 3 5', she is unable to fit into a size 5 dress that she originally intended to wear to Spring Fling). Regina decides to now ruin Cady's life.
Regina gives "The Burn Book" to her principal at school, Mr. Duvall (Tim Meadows), and frames the remaining members of The Plastics for writing it by adding herself to the book, but none of them, so that they are the only junior girls not included. She first makes numerous photocopies of its pages. Distributing these copies around the whole school, she causes all the girls to turn against each other. Outraged, Mr. Duvall gathers all of the junior girls into the gymnasium for an attitude makeover. Cady's math teacher, Ms. Norbury, is asked to take charge of the workshop. The girls are made to confess the bad things they have done and said about their peers.
Janis, although still furious at Cady, tells everyone about how Cady, Damian and herself thought up a nasty plan to ruin Regina's life, and is praised by everyone else - apart from Regina. Regina walks out and Cady attempts to apologize, but Regina refuses to forgive her. Regina is then hit by a school bus. The following day, rumors about Regina's accident start to float around school. One rumor states that Cady pushed Regina in front of the bus, which makes even Cady's own parents distrust her.
Cady ends up alone with no friends. She enters math class to discover that her teacher, Ms. Norbury (Tina Fey), has been taken away because of accusations of her being a drug dealer, as stated in the "The Burn Book". Also in the book was a page about a coach having an affair with two of his students. It turned out to be true, which forced the school to check each of the book's accusations. Cady decides to step up and admit that she wrote the book (although she only wrote the rumor about Ms. Norbury selling drugs, and the comment about Damian being too gay to function which, as she initially worried, was only okay when Janis said it). Ms. Norbury forgives Cady after she apologizes upon Ms. Norbury's return to school, but as punishment to Cady, makes her join the Mathletes.
Although Cady is grounded by her father for a failing grade in math (since she dumbed herself down to get Aaron's attention), she leaves her house to attend a Mathlete competition. At the same time, the rest of the school prepares for the Spring Fling, a school dance. Cady comes to some realizations about life and manages to win the Mathlete competition in the last minute.
After the competition, the Mathletes attend the Spring Fling, where Cady is announced as Queen of Spring Fling. Cady thinks she doesn't deserve the title after all she has done and breaks her crown into small pieces to give to other students. She then makes amends with The Plastics, Janis, Damian and finally Aaron.
The following school year, The Plastics break up, with Gretchen joining the "The Cool Asians" group, Karen presenting the morning weather announcements (she states that her breasts can detect when it is raining) and Regina taking up lacrosse. Cady is now dating Aaron and has become friends with everyone in her senior class. Karen has also made great friends with Jessica Lopez, a disabled girl at the school. Everyone gets along, and is able to float freely amongst different groups. The Plastics are no longer a clique, however at the very end, Damian points out the 'Junior Plastics'- three freshmen girls in the spitting image of Regina, Gretchen and Karen. Cady states that there is no reason to be concerned, as the senior class knows how to deal with them now.
