‘Mean Girls’ focuses on number of teenage stereotypes

Skylar Hill, Staff Writer

What’s the best thing about a mean girl? Nothing comes to mind. However, the classic American comedy “Mean Girls” demonstrates what high school can be like for a girl if she is sucked into toxic friendships.

This movie takes place in a typical high school setting where the popular girls are idolized. Lindsay Lohan stars in the film, playing the role of a girl who is joining the socialized world of high school a bit later than the others. This means she has a lot to learn which comes with the challenges of adapting to her new life.
The three most popular girls, called “The Plastics,” decide to take her and morph her into being one of them.
Problems arise when Cady (Lindsay Lohan) becomes friends with another group of teens who despise The Plastics.
Throughout the entire movie, Cady’s other friend group plans to sabotage the three Plastics and break them up. A change of the original plan occurs when Cady starts to become like the three Plastics.
Once the leader is kicked out of the way, Cady becomes the leader, and it’s her job to now run the high school as one of the most popular people in the school.
By the end of the movie, predictably, Cady sees that she has turned into what she had previously hated. She apologizes to the people she has hurt, becomes herself again, and swears there will never be high school royalty again.
You should see this movie because it has lots of girl drama, and the movie may be a fun way to waste time going back to memories of past years of high school, The movie does, however, have a lot more fiction than truth.
This movie makes up plenty of girl drama that wouldn’t happen in today’s world. One girl cannot control an entire school just by being popular.
This movie is worth watching, but keep in mind the fictional element. The movie has lots of humor and fun with stereotypes and exaggerations of what high school is really like.
