Synopsis

From the comedic mind of Tina Fey comes a new twist on the modern classic Mean Girls. New student Cady Heron (Angourie Rice) is welcomed into the top of the social food chain by the elite group of popular girls called “The Plastics,” ruled by conniving queen bee Regina George (Reneé Rapp) and her minions Gretchen (Bebe Wood) and Karen (Avantika). However, when Cady makes the major misstep of falling for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Christopher Briney), she finds herself in Regina’s crosshairs. As Cady sets out to take down the group’s apex predator with the help of her outcast friends Janis (Auli’i Cravalho) and Damian (Jaquel Spivey), she must learn how to stay true to herself while navigating the most cutthroat jungle of all: high school.

A fun and refreshing addition to the Mean Girls franchise.

Mean Girls made its mark on the world back in 2004 and had a resurgence with a Broadway adaptation 14 years later. Now, they’re back for even more with a film adaptation of the musical!

You might think that’s too much of the same thing happening all over again but Tina Fey and company are here to prove you wrong. Not only is Mean Girls (2024) louder, funnier and somehow more fleshed out, it’s also full of catchy tunes and an excellent young cast. Sure, the main plot remains but those familiar with the original film will appreciate this updated take on the 2004 cult classic.

Angourie Rice plays Cady Heron, the role originated by Lindsay Lohan. She’s easily believable as the bright-eyed home-schooled teenager but she’s also easily overshadowed by the far superior Reneé Rapp, who plays Regina George. Rapp gained recognition for her stint as the Queen Bee in the Broadway musical so it comes to no surprise to see her ease into the role on screen as well. Her Regina has far more bite and audacity than Rachel McAdams’ pretty and popular version. But if you ask us, the true scene stealers of the film are hands down Auli’i Cravalho and Jaquel Spivey’s Janis and Damian who serve as the film’s narrators. It’s nice to see Cravalho in a setting that showcases her talents and spunky personality.

Lost in the midst of all the talent and energy is Christopher Briney’s Aaron Samuels who unfortunately leaves a more forgettable performance compared to his co-stars. The lack of chemistry he has with both Rice and Rapp is forgivable but his pouty take on the character almost bringing the mood of this spritely film down isn’t.

The jokes are fresh, the quips are witty, and the catchy songs with lively choreography are a treat for anyone looking for a good time at the cinemas. Mean Girls is here to stay.
