mean girls

Masterfully adapted by SNL headwriter Tina Fey from a parenting book by Rachel Wiseman, Mean Girls is a light yet intelligent romp into the ironies and agonies of high school life. The movie does not degenerate into the clich├ęs and stereotypes almost expected of teen movies. Fey and director Mark S. Waters are able to guide their teen cast (as well as the “adult” cast) to delve into what could easily become stereotypical and one-dimensional characters but come out without being trite. Mean Girls is a brutal dissection of high school life disguised as a teen comedy, a movie that I wouldn’t mind watching at least once over.

I also got to watch Criss Angel's Mindfreak. Totally bizarre.
