I think we have progressed enough as a society for me to say this; Mean Girls is one of the best comedies of all time. The social critiques still hold up, and it's truly amusing to see how many teen comedies in recent years have tried to replicate Fey's writing style here.

A great conversation starter for older tweens and teens, plus it’s totally entertaining and hilarious.

This was clearly girls movie and one most guys would call a chick flick. Girl friend found some humor in it and was encourging me to keep watching this worthless flick, so I did. To me this was a strong two on the rating scale. However it is obvious to me by the other high ratings and strong comments I just did not get it, went right over my head. Most men will avoid, however certain types may find it entertaining. So give it a try what have you to loose other than a couple hours.

There's something about this movie that I can't pull myself away from. It's not great and it comes across as a really lame film about girls getting revenge on each other. It's totally far-fetched and borderline ridiculous. But I like it. There are some very funny moments and it's not loaded down with sex and swearing. Lindsay Lohan is actually really good in this, as are the other girls. The students actually look like high school students, which is rare these days, when thirty-year olds are passed off as high schoolers. I guess you could call this a guilty pleasure of mine, because I find myself watching it whenever it comes on TV. Definitely a good movie to watch if you are a fan of Lindsay Lohan. Also stars Tina Fey and Tim Meadows.

Cady Heron is a teenage girl who has been homeschooled in Africa, and then she moves to New York, to go to a public high school. She decides to friend a group called “the Plastics” and doesn’t expect war when she starts to like the most popular girl in schools ex-boyfriend. I absolutely love this movie and its one of my favourite comedies. This movie can be watched countless times and it never gets boring. If you’re ever in a need for a laugh make sure to watch this movie, and you’ll be happy in no time. This is kind of a chick flick so some guys may not enjoy as much. Some parts of high school and things are exaggerated but it’s still a really good movie. I rate this movie a 4/5. @Khutoria of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I rate Mean Girls a definite 5/5. This movie is amazing for all audiences, but specifically teenagers. It looks at common issues, but also has a funny side that makes the movie entertaining. The subtle comedy throughout is the basis of the film and it engages you to keep watching. The mean popular group and the drama in the movie is quite relatable to many teenagers who are in high school, but not to the degree that is shown of course. The film exaggerates characters and stereotypes which takes a very familiar/common character and makes them unique. However, the film uses some offensive language towards others, women especially. Because of that, I would recommend that the movie is watched by individuals 13+ with parental permission.
@TheBookkeeper of The Hamilton Public Library's Teen Review Board

Mean Girls clearly is a movie targeted towards the female audience, although I know some men who actually genuinely enjoyed it. This movie is full of that classic stereotypical teenage girl in high school with the jocks, cool cheerleaders and unpopular kids. Aside from this, the movie is actually very entertaining. I find it really cheesy and I guess that’s what is really entertaining about it. I love Regina George’s Burn Book and it has got to be my favourite part of the movie! The actors played their roles spot on and it was a really well done movie overall. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and it gets a 4 out of 5 star rating from me.

Lindsey Lohan at her former balanced self (before the drugs, family opera, etc.) does a good job playing a home-schooled geek dropped into a vicious clique of hot girls. She turns her back on the offbeat artists and sharpens her own claws as the popular girls battle for hot supremacy in the narrow confines of high school. Dismaying to hear the self-internalized misogyny as the girls name call each other with "slut" and "whore". Tina Fey plays peacemaker in a little too glib of an ending.

She doesn't even go here!

This Tina Fey classic is still absolute gold! Revisit this one any time you need a good, solid laugh.

VERY GOOD 2004 comedic plus glimpse into contemporary high school drama. No doubt high schoolers interact quite a bit different post 2000 than we did half a century before and it made for an interesting view for older me.

Never saw when it originally came out but a lot better than I thought would be! Typical ehh high school plot, but great casting, dialogue, cut/imaginative scenes (not sure what that style is called but i.e. the school being like the African range)
