You Go, Glen Coco: Mean Girls Celebrates Its Tenth Anniversary

Everybody grab your pink and throw away your sweatpants—it’s the tenth anniversary of Mean Girls! The Tina Fey-written film, which starred Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Tina Fey, and Amanda Seyfried, debuted in theatres on April 30, exactly a decade ago today. Mean Girls gave a generation of millennials catchphrases like “That’s so fetch” and “It’s like I have ESPN or something.” It also turned out to be one of the greatest teen/high school movies of all time (as well as turning Lindsay Lohan from a teen star to a bona fide actress). But the real milestone for the movie is not its longevity. Rather, it’s the relevance Mean Girls has in popular culture today. When the movie opened ten years ago, it received moderate reviews from critics, although it went on to be a box office success. So what sets this movie apart from other high school comedies like Heathers or Clueless? Let me tell you—honesty. When we watch Alicia Silverstone strut down the hallway wearing designer clothes in Clueless or cringe at the murder plot in Heathers, we ask ourselves: how can a modern-day teenager relate to that? But Mean Girls gives its viewers a real look into what high school life is like. Sometimes high school hallways are like fashion catwalks. And sometimes certain cliques accept you and then dump you the next day. And the ultimate theme of the movie, which we can all learn from, is that no matter what group of people act like your friends or if a certain boy has a crush on you or if you’re an award-winning mathlete—if you stay true to yourself, the right people will fall into your life and make it extraordinary. So, here we are, ten years later, saying things like “fetch” and “Boo, you whore” and “You go, Glen Coco.” Maybe Tina Fey couldn’t make fetch happen. But thank you, Tina, for making Mean Girls happen. Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
