It’s not their fault that fans and critics are in love with the new Mean Girls film. Starring Angourie Rice, Reneé Rapp, Chris Briney, Auli’i Cravalho, Jaquel Spivey, Bebe Wood, Avantika Vandanapu, Tim Meadows, and Tina Fey, this version of Mean Girls is revamped, but still wearing pink on Wednesdays. In case you haven’t watched the original, here’s the synopsis.
New student Cady Heron (Rice) is welcomed into the top of tier of North Shore High School’s social food chain by the infamous popular girls “The Plastics,” consisting of queen bee Regina George (Rapp) and her minions, Gretchen (Wood) and Karen (Avantika). But when Cady falls for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Briney), a major high school social faux pas, she finds herself in Regina’s crosshairs. With the help of her outcast friends Janis (Cravalho) and Damian (Spivey), Cady decides to take down the group’s apex predator, but will she stay true to herself in this cutthroat jungle called high school?
