Mean Girls

Unless you’re a 16 year old girl and you enjoy crude humor, stale sight gags and fart jokes, you’ll probably want to miss the comedy Mean Girls. After living in Africa with her parents and being home-schooled all of her life, Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) begins attending a suburban high school. Cady wants to fit in with her new surroundings and quickly becomes friends with the most popular snobby girls in the school called the “Plastics.” (In a few years they will probably be called the silicones.) Cady is soon betrayed by the groups leader named Regina (Rachel McAdams) who begins dating a boy at the school that Cady likes. Cady takes revenge on the Plastics by spreading rumors and writing nasty notes about other students and blaming it on Regina and the Plastics. Why do they make these types of films? There are a few laughs but it’s the same so called comedy material found in every teeny bopper movie. For example, in one scene the Plastics walk down the hallway and the loser crowd parts down the middle to let them pass. Either they can’t come up with any new ideas or there was another fart joke I missed. At least I have the excuse that I’m blind and I could pretend I didn’t know the movie was playing in this theater. While asking myself once again why, I’m giving this film a D rating.

This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA

Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
