Regina George is a pop culture icon; unrelentingly representative of a terrifying girl-on-girl meanness, she is the brilliant brainchild of writer Tina Fey, actress Rachel McAdams, and directer Mark Waters. Edging out Heathers’ Heather Chandler as the most eerily alluring young female villain, George terrified and mesmerized audiences and proved that words can be deadlier even than the strongest drain cleaner. As the ten-year anniversary of Mean Girls ... Read More

Jennifer Simpkins of The Tab London has written a savvy, brave piece about the dark underbelly of fourth-wave feminism – or, really, any loud group of opinionated people with internet access. In her estimate, feminists can counterintuitively tend to victimize other women by being excessively quick to admonish or dismiss; take the author's description of the time she tentatively endorsed Robin Thicke's “Blurred Lines” on social media. Worth ... Read More

I don't need to tell you that Mean Girls is the most hysterical, quotable movie of all time. You know it, I know it, it is fact. And the best part is, there's never a bad time to use a Mean Girls line. You are always regarded as witty and charming for pulling "she doesn't even go here" out of your ass at a party. It's a universal truth.
But Christopher Rosa, an intern for NextMovie, just put us all to shame.
This majestic creature takes Mean Girls love to the ... Read More
So virtual Burn Books are a thing now, apparently. Kids these days, amirite?
This Tuesday, two Swedish girls (aged 15 and 16 respectively) were found guilty of “aggravated defamation” for slut-shaming 38 of their peers via Instagram.
As early as December, the two were on a lookout for the “worst sluts in Gothenburg,” receiving 1000 suggestions. From there, they published photos (primarily of females) along with cruel comments on their ... Read More

"Ugh, my jeans so do not fit anymore. I'm a cow!" "No way, I'M the cow! Just look at my cankles!"
Yeah, we've all done it. Whether or not you admit it, we've all fat-talked. It's easy to do and it's so normalized that you might not even realize you're doing it. It becomes an automatic response. Psychologists define it as "the body-denigrating conversation between girls and women." While it might seem basically harmless, this type of infectious speech can be a ... Read More

I “dreamed a dream in time gone by”… that someone would think of something so brilliant and so funny as taking screen shots from different scenes from the Oscar-Nominated and award-winning film Les Mis and putting Mean Girls quotes on them.
This week Tina Fey mentioned a Mean Girls Musical in the works… and now this. The “stars in their multitude” are aligning my friends, and they look much better than ... Read More

The words “save the date” immediately bring forth images of white gowns, floral arrangements, and choosing between chicken or fish. But the film Save the Date, directed by Michael Mohan (who co-wrote the film with Jeffrey Brown), doesn’t focus on those clichés. Instead, it centers on Sarah (played by Lizzy Caplan), who’s trying to figure out what she wants in life. Instead of saying yes to her boyfriend Kevin’s public proposal, made soon ... Read More

What’s better than Amy Poehler? Amy Poehler rapping? Amy Poehler rapping with Tina Fey and Lindsay Lohan dancing in the background? Yep. This exists.This clip of Amy Poehler trying to rap the infamous "Kevin G" rap from Mean Girls during rehearsal for the movie recently surfaced on YouTube. Although Poehler is adorable, she fails to complete the rap again and again. (Which some may argue makes her more adorable.) Fey and Lohan’s back up ... Read More
