Mean Girls (2004) #1: More Than Just a Dumb Teen Flick

"Mean Girls" is Lindsay Lohoan's new movie about a new girl at a high school who goes to "war" with a group of popular girls once the wrong her.

However, what is really interesting is that this movie is based on the book by Rosalind Wiseman called "Queen Bees and Wannabes" that details the real life trials and tribulations that teenage girls go through in high school in terms of the psychological effects that those experieneces (negative and positive) can have on them through out their entire lives even after they've left high school.

Dr. Phil even did a show on this (today) with Lindsay Lohan and a bunch of real life "mean girls" and even she was shocked that the characters she battles in the movie actually exist in real life today and was astounded at how accurate the movie's semi-serious portrayl was.

It's very interesting (to me, since I am a male) how different males and females are and how they react and deal with emotional pain, and the whole reason I am bringing this movie to everyone attention (young and old; male and female) is that this film could easily be dismissed as another "dumb teen comedy" when in reality there is a lot of deeper things going on here that the movie addresses if you take the time and go beyond the film...

Something that Shrrrr and ROCKSTAR have always encouraged on the movie board [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
