Raised in the African bush country by her zoologist parents, Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) thinks she knows about "survival of the fittest." But the law of the jungle takes on a whole new meaning when the home-schooled 15-year-old enters public high school for the first time and falls prey to the psychological warfare and unwritten social rules that teenage girls face today.

Directed by Mark Waters (Freaky Friday), from a screenplay by Emmy winner Tina Fey (Saturday Night Live), Mean Girls is a fictional comedy based on Rosalind Wiseman's New York Times bestseller, Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends and Other Realities of Adolescence, which Time praised as "a chilling account of the life our girls navigate in their school lunchrooms and hallways." []

"Tina Fey's screenplay maintains an excellent balance between cutting social commentary and plain good old fashioned fun."
