There are some movies that are classic forever. These movies are ones that seem to work no matter what generation is watching and the characters are a mix of super real and hilarious. For me, these classic movies are rooted in the ones I watched hen I was a teenager. Two of them stand out more than the rest — being Clueless and Mean Girls. They’re my movies and ones even now I can watch over and over and still find funny.
When Mean Girls first came out, I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. I remember scoffing at the preview saying that it was just another dumb movie. I felt the same way about Legally Blonde, which was also an amazing movie, BTW. I finally watched the movie starting Cady and Regina and seriously was hooked from the start. It did a great job at highlighting what high school is like. And what the dynamic of being a teenage girl is like too. On top of that, the movie hit on bullying and actually had a real message at the end. There ere characters you would having in high school back when I was in it — and you’d find those same people in high school now.
I’ve always wondered why they didn’t make a second movie. Most movies that do really well get a sequel and I’ve been waiting for this one. Well, Tina Fey, who wrote the movie, finally revealed why Mean Girls 2 didn’t happen and why it likely never will.
