February 15, 2024

DAYTON — “Mean Girls” is a new twist on the modern classic from the comedic mind of Tina Fey. “New student Cady Heron (Angourie Rice) is welcomed into the top of the social food chain by the elite group of popular girls called “The Plastics,” ruled by the conniving queen bee Regina George (Reneé Rapp) and her minions Gretchen (Bebe Wood) and Karen (Avantika). However, when Cady makes the major misstep of falling for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Christopher Briney), she finds herself prey in Regina’s crosshairs.

“As Cady sets to take down the group’s apex predator with the help of her outcast friends Janis (Auli’i Cravalho) and Damian (Jaquel Spivey), she must learn how to stay true to herself while navigating the most cutthroat jungle of all: high school,” from the Rotten Tomatoes website.

This movie was rated 70% favorable by critics at the Rotten Tomatoes website, and the audience gave it a 62%.  The audience summary is “As long as you can avoid comparing it to the original -- and you don’t mind musicals -- “Mean Girls” is a fun watch with some strong performances.”  This movie is rated PG-13 for sexual material, strong language, and teen drinking.  The IMDb parent’s guide has this movie as moderate for language, but mild or none for all other rated categories. This movie has a runtime of 112 minutes.
