3.5/4

Starring Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert, Amanda Seyfried, Tina Fey, Lizzy Caplan

Director(s) Mark S. Waters

PG-13 - for sexual content, language and some teen partying

Overview from movies.com:
Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) was home-schooled in the African wilderness by her zoologist parents but finds that life gets a lot rougher when she matriculates at North Shore High School in a small town outside of Chicago. After she admits to having a crush on the ex-boyfriend of the school's most popular girl, Regina George
(Rachel McAdams), forces align against her.

Personal Critique:

One of my favorite movies of the year, definitely. You probably don't think you'd like this movie--Lindsey Lohan usually does cutesy Disney stuff and the trailer may not be your favorite. But I recommend this to anyone who has ever been in High School [AKA everyone], especially in a public high school. It's so humorous and I can totallllllly remember similar-ish things going on in my own school. It's funny to see them put on the big screen and seem so ridiculous, when you know it was so serious to you at one point in time---or at least to most of us, it was serious at one point in time. It's funny and charming, but in a bad sort of way. You know, I think I'd go see it again, if I wasn't so broke. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!
