Mean Girls (2024)

From multiple-Emmy-winner Tina Fey (30 Rock) comes a new – musical – twist on the cult-favourite movie, Mean Girls, which was in turn based on Rosalind Wiseman’s book Queen Bees and Wannabes. Also watch the 2004 original on Showmax.

The #15 highest-grossing movie of 2024 (so far) at the global box office, Mean Girls follows new student Cady Heron, who’s welcomed in to the top of the social food chain by the elite popular girls known as “The Plastics”… until she falls for queen bee Regina’s ex, Aaron.

Mean Girls stars Angourie Rice (the Spider-Man trilogy, Mare of Easttown) as Cady, with singer Reneé Rapp (The Sex Lives of College Girls) reprising her role from the Broadway show as Regina. Also look out for Auli’i Cravalho (who voiced the animated Moana), Tony winner and Grammy nominee Jaquel Spivey, and Christopher Briney (The Summer I Turned Pretty) as Aaron, as well as a bunch of familiar faces from the original film, including lead Lindsay Lohan.

As says, “Ultimately, the film is a vinegary cautionary tale, an angry screed against being mean for meanness sake, and a love letter to teens who are comfortable just being themselves. This time around it seems Fey and co actually made fetch happen.”
