Mean Girls (2024)

Cady Heron (Angourie Rice) is the new girl in school looking for a crowd to run with, so, when the Plastics, an A-list girl clique take an interest in her, it would seem she might be in over her head. But, with a little guidance from the Artists Janis and Damian (Auli’i Cravalho and Jaquel Spivey) there might be a chance for Cady to become the Apex predator of the school, but at what cost and who’s friendship?Written by Tina Fey and Directed by Samantha Jayne and Arturo Perez Jr. this charming remake brings new flair in the form of a musical comedy with creatively thought out song and dance numbers and further adaptations to present day social media mixed with classic high school anxieties all the while staying true to what fans of the original 2004 version love most. Shining as an ensemble piece with an embarrassment of riches it should also be noted that Fey and Tim Meadows reprise of their own roles as Ms. Norbury and Mr. Duvall adding one more golden thread to keep the piece well tied together. At a time of the year when studios typically dump their worst into theatres, this addition stands out above the norm. Running an hour and fifty two minutes, Mean Girls is rated PG-13.
