Mean Girls (Movies)

"Oh, and there's also this latent mean girl gene. You're lucky you're made out of plastic."
...
"So who's the mean girl now?"

Proving to be rather better that just a Lindsay Lohan vehicle, this 2004 film featured the queen bees of Evanston Township High School, the Plastics — living, breathing Barbie dolls. The A-list clique, including the lovely Amanda Seyfried in a role far removed from that of Lilly Kane, dictate, agitate, and manipulate to maintain their position as determiners of who's cool and who's a fool until challenged by a high school ingénue. Veronica wisely notes that her fake "daughter," possibly one-quarter mean girl through Lianne, has a head-start as a Plastic. Then later, just like in the film, Veronica has an epiphany as she realizes that she is becoming that which she hates and changes her path.
