Inspired by a real-life high-school survival manual for teenage girls and their mothers (
Queen Bees and Wannabes
), this is a bracingly dark comedy that brings to mind such classics of the genre as
. Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) is a bright, pretty kid who has been home-educated in Africa by her anthropologist parents, and is thrown in at the deep end when she attends high school in the US for the first time. Befriended by the geek clique, she also infiltrates the "plastics" - a troika of Barbie-like popular girls - where she learns the art of being queen bitch, but soon begins to enjoy her new-found status a little too much. Despite descending into slightly saccharine moralising towards the end, this is a snappily written, acerbic account of the American secondary education experience that will make most Brits grateful they didn't have to go through it.
A teenager is surprised when she is befriended by the girls in the most popular clique at her new school. However, a dating mishap leads to trouble and her supposed friends start to turn on her. Urged on by other pals outside their circle, the newcomer resolves to bring down the self-appointed queen of campus - only to end up adopting some of her rival's crueller characteristics. Comedy, with Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Tina Fey and Lacey Chabert.
