'Mean Girls'
(Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Tim Meadows, Amy Poehler, Ana Gasteyer, Tina Fey / PG-13 / 83 mins / Paramount)

Overview: In 'Mean Girls', Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) is raised in the African wilderness by her zoologist parents but finds life gets a lot rougher when she moves to the city and begins high school. After dating the ex-boyfriend of the school's most popular girl, forces align against her.

Verdict: Though not a perfect comedy, 'Mean Girls' manages to be quite often laugh-out-loud funny. A chick flick with a brain, the smart choices the film makes outweigh its murky message. Acutely hilarious, even an uneven satire at times, 'Mean Girls' does lacks the discipline to stay on point all the time, but ends up a vinegary fable with a Splenda aftertaste!
