Mean Girls (2004, Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams) is one of those movies that is frequently shown on TBS and like stations, à la Wedding Crashers. I kept running across it, for some reason always in the scene toward the end where all the girls are seated in the gymnasium. It seemed like it would be a fun movie based on what I saw, and so, like any movie I run across on TV that I want to watch, I made sure not to watch too much of it lest plot elements be given away.
I needn’t have worried, for there are no plot elements of any value in this movie. Mean Girls is a contrived, formulaic, and mostly awful high school-based non-comedy. I was warned at the outset, when I saw it was a Lorne Michaels production — generally the hallmark of complete dreck. The positive Tomatometer score makes me wonder if I was watching the same movie.
So as Nap-to-the-D would say:
This is pretty much the worst video ever made.
Well, not quite the worst. But close. 2/10
