Mean Girls Review + Lindsay Lohan’s Acting Career

Lindsay Lohan’s Acting Career and Review of Mean Girls

Hey everyone, Valentines Day is here again and it is awful as usual so I am just watching Mean Girls and figured I would write a general review for any non-plastics out there who have yet to see the movie. Mean Girls is a clever, smart and unmitigated look into the darker nature of both teenagers and the North American high school experience. It stars Lindsay Lohan as Cady a girl who, up until the start of the movie, was living with her zoologist parents in Africa. She comes to America into a complex and strange society of consumerism, cars, fashion, credit cards and credit card debt settlement companies – but her greatest challenge is adjusting to high school and the ritualized bullying that runs rampant between cliques and the disenfranchised.

Mean Girls at its heart is a comedy and follows the exploits of Lohans character as she does battle with the queen bee cliques and, ultimately, exposes the cruelty and ignorance of her fellow teenagers. We the viewer are given a unique perspective into this world through the eyes of a person who has spent most of her life in Africa and, thus, has never had to deal with such superficial trivialities. Even though the core of the narrative presents a tragic reality about the high school world, you never quite feel like the movie is overextending itself or preaching.

So if you are looking for a high school movie with adults in mind, then pick up Mean Girls!
