Aussie boy's thoughts

It’s an enormous surprise to discover the fact that the typical high-school teacher, Ms. Norbury, enrolled by Tina Fey, knows exactly how to write an exceedingly funny and entertaining screenplay depicting a group of unkind teenage girls with attitude. She provides pure originality and humour throughout this pleasurable teen comedy, accompanied by director Mark Waters whose also able to make sure the ideas will leave you in hysterics and will occasionally shock you.

Mean Girls is a pink-coloured, harsh teen comedy that you’re either to appreciate or despise. It’s definitely the flick that feels like a ‘female’ movie, due to the depictions of teenage girls with a real attitude and reputation. The film also attaches to humour that teenagers are likely to adore, but adults will still find pleasure in the storyline.

The film owns a standard runtime of an hour and a half, but sometimes it feels like it drags to a longer stage. In this type of teenage comedy, it’s mainly because there’s several chunks of time that keep at a slow pace, but they’re always overtaken by big events.
