Mean Girls [Blu-ray]

Just to get this out of the way, I am horribly superficial and judgmental when it comes to celebrities.  In that sense, more than any other, I am unabashedly American.  So, in my opinion, it was a tragedy when Hilary Duff turned 18 and then started looking like Joan Rivers.  Even worse was when Lindsay Lohan, who is deliciously delightful in this movie, went downhill to where she is now, broken hearted from Sam Ronson leaving her.  Poor LiLo.  But now you can live it up with this great film from her heyday in a brand new format!

Starting this April 14th, now available on Blu-ray disc from Paramount Studios Home Entertainment comes one of the most wicked and most hilarious stories about being a popular girl in high school.  Mean Girls – Blu-ray Disc is ready to come blasting right out of your television screen with its wickedly hilarious vision of high school and transport you right back into those painfully superficial days.  Bring home this hilariously biting comedy today!

Based off of a real non-fiction book that examines the interactions between social cliques in high school, this movie is all about who’s in and who’s not.  Cady was homeschooled up until she was 15 because her zoologist parents were in Africa.  Now she’s at North Shore High School and she’s struggling mightily to fit in.  She somehow manages to meet Regina, the Queen Bee who rules the whole school.  Cady is then invited to join The Plastics, Regina’s posse, and it looks like she’s set for life.  Then Cady falls for Regina’s ex-flame and all hell breaks loose.  Now everyone’s plotting to take down everyone else.  But in all the vitriol, will Cady forget what she’s really like?  This movie stars Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Ana Gasteyer, Tim Meadows, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert and Lindsay Lohan and was written by Tina Fey.

The special features included on this Blu-ray disc are an optional audio commentary on the film by Mark Waters, Tina Fey and Lorne Michaels, a hilarious reel of bloopers, three great interstitials, the original theatrical trailer, deleted scenes with optional audio commentary and three great featurettes about the intricacies of girl cliques in high school.

I have always thought this was a fantastic movie.  It is cunningly hilarious and with just enough broad social references to have that Tina Fey touch.  It’s a fantastic treat to get to see a movie that she was behind.  It’s also grand to watch a LiLo movie that was actually palatable.  As someone who has put high school a safe distance behind them, this movie was crushingly hilarious, because those types of issues don’t matter to me any longer.  But to watch this in high school would be more along the lines of a painful documentary where you were forced to watch yourself go through all of this every single day.  In high definition, it’s even better than it was before.  Pick this modern classic high school tale up today!

Don’t be Mean, treat yourself to this great movie on Blu-ray today!

This Blu-ray disc is available at Amazon.com.
