Not that she carries the film alone. I really don't understand how someone could actually give this movie a one. Second, the acting is very good and convincing. The jokes and gags come at a break-neck pace, but the punch lines aren't the only hilarious aspects. Lindsay Lohan is Cady, the previously home-schooled daughter of two zoologists, growing up in the African wilderness while Mom and Dad conduct their research. Brown as Harold Ray I.
Neurotic, shallow, desperate, beautiful, loyal and rather uncertain she is perhaps the saddest and most sympathetic of the Plastics - a girl who certainly has the looks and money to make it to the top of the pyramid but who lacked the will or the certainty. Overall, there did not seem to be any casting problems. The other plastics are played by Lacey Chabert and Amanda Seyfried. Rachel McAdams pretty much steals this film, and she is likely the cast member who will have the best career of this bunch. If you like teen movies then you'll find this a very good one. Brown as Harold Ray I.
He keeps the film short yet enormously entertaining. The bigger the hair, the more popular the girl. It's not just for teens but also for adults.

Tina Fey seems to understand that teens want comedies they can relate to and she did that with Mean Girls.
On Janis's urgings, Cady infiltrates the Plastics, and her mission becomes personal when the Plastics leader, Regina Rachel McAdams , stabs Cady in the back. The more popular the young lady becomes, the more miserable her life becomes, however. Not a problem with Karen Amanda Seyfried who has an admirable certainty of herself and her abilities. Fey, Waters, and the entire cast have made sure the experience will be enjoyable for everyone. I think Mean Girls is very good for a number of reasons.
If there's anything to complain about in this film, it's the overt sexualization of teenage girls. While Heathers is a good movie, mean Girls is an even better movie. The younger members of the cast don't let the veterans walk away with the whole show though. The most cynical person will point out that this is a cheap rip off of Heathers and they are similar. To which Karen replies thoughtfully without a hint of bitterness or anger : Karen: No, I am, actually. When the 'rents decide to settle down, Cady gets her first taste of public schooling, which is almost as wild as the jungles and safaris she's used to. Some would argue that the characters in this film are just stereotypes, but so are most real life high schoolers.
Lindsay Lohan also gives a good performance as Cady. Lindsay Lohan is charming, but nothing too exceptional. Gretchen herself, played by the delectable Lacey Chabert is a character of her own, not just a cardboard minion to follow orders. Mean Girls did in fact prove to be a rewarding experience. First, the script is actually creative and smart. If you don't, well hold your nose and try it anyway, you might be pleasantly surprised! In the end, this smart and funny teen movie deserves to be seen. Cady is introduced to the different factions that populate the cafeteriaincluding the nympho band geeks, the nerdy Asians, the cool Asians, the varsity jocks and of course, the Plastics, teen royalty led by the manipulative Regina George Rachel McAdams.
Dickerson, Jerry Goldstein, Lonnie Jordan as Leroy L. Jo and Abby team up to take on the school's mean girls, the Plastics. Of course the key group is the titular Mean Girls themselves - Regina Rachel McAdams , Gretchen Lacey Chabert and Karen Amanda Seyfried. Rachel McAdams creates a memorable High School tyrant, malicous, power mad and cruel but not entirely virtue free. Other stand-out performances go to Caplan and Franzese as well as Tina Fey who plays a teacher , Amanda Seyfried as one of the Plastics, Karen , and McAdams. Lacey Chabert is also worth mentioning, and she seems worthy of some better roles in the future. Dickerson, Jerry Goldstein, Lonnie Jordan as Leroy J.

Another reason why Mean Girls is so good is because it's actually funny for people over the age of 21. Her best scenes are with Rachel. It all might sound like the typical teen fare, but the result is nothing like that. The film made a ton of money and launched some of its young stars into orbit.
