Mean girls is a film that will appeal not just to teenagers but to anyone with a sense of humour...particularly if you like your humour black.
Lindsay Lohan stars as a young girl who has been taught at home all of her life and is joining high school for the first time. Cady and her parents have been living in Africa and she soon realises that being at school isn't all that different. There are clear demarkations betwen the various species such as the 'plastics', the 'geeks' and so on.
The film has some hilarious moments as Cady tries to find her niche in this jungle. As with most 'teen' movies, there is a moral at the end but thankfully this isn't saccharine in any way. Great fun.
