Comedy, Coming of Age
When Charles Darwin established his law that only the fittest in nature survive, is it possible that he had in mind an American high school? In the likeable Mean Girls, Lindsay Lohan's Africa-raised new girl falls in with a popular clique, only to find them more vicious than any jungle cat. This smart and very funny comedy wonders whether you can stay true to yourself and still survive school. It was based on a real-life manual to help parents deal with "Queen Bees and Wannabes" in their children's lives.
