What is the Mean Girls Movie?

Nearly two decades have passed since the original film, featuring Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert, and Amanda Seyfried, graced the screen. Since it’s premiere, this cinematic gem has blossomed into a beloved cult classic, sprinkled with iconic catchphrases and even earning its own dedicated national day.

Following the success of the 2004 movie, the story was adapted into a hit Broadway musical in 2018. Now, Paramount Pictures are returning the Mean Girls to screens once more in a movie adaptation of the musical.
