* CoolLoser: Janis Ian. She used to be popular, but during middle school, Regina spread rumors claiming that she was a lesbian.


Added DiffLines:

* CompletelyOffTopicReport: Gretchen reads a report in class about ''Theatre/JuliusCaesar'', specifically about the murder scene, which is a very thinly veiled attack against Regina's tyrannous behaviour and has fairly little to do with the actual plot.
-->'''Gretchen:''' Why should Caesar just get to stomp around like a giant while the rest of us try not to get smushed under his big feet? Brutus is just as cute as Caesar, right? Brutus is just as smart as Caesar, people totally like Brutus just as much as they like Caesar, and when did it become okay for one person to be the boss of everybody because that's not what Rome is about! We should totally just STAB CAESAR!

** PlayedForLaughs in the scene where Regina's parents are photographing her in her {{stripperiffic}} Halloween costume. Regina's mom thinks it looks fierce and is eagerly snapping pictures, while her dad can't believe that he's seeing his little baby dressed like that.

* AvoidTheDreadedGRating: The sole reason this film was not aired on DisneyChannel as an original movie is because of the amount of tacked-on profanity.

* CutASliceTakeTheRest: During the time when Regina is unknowingly being manipulated into gaining weight, she can be seen cutting off the end of a loaf of French bread and biting the loaf. Tina Fey notices this for the first time during the {{DVD Commentary}} and actually remarks that WesternAnimation/BugsBunny [[GoldenAgeOfAnimation used to]] [[ZanyCartoon do that]].

* WeightWoe: Regina's "killer bod" is one of the items that comes under attack in Janis' plot. The means? Protein-heavy granola bars that are supposed to help athletes and malnourished children gain weight, passed to Regina as if they're diet bars. It's subtle since Rachael McAdams is so skinny naturally, but the crew actually stuffed her sweat pants and hoodie with padding to make her look HollywoodPudgy.

'''''Mean Girls''''' is a fairly [[{{Troperiffic}} trope-heavy]] comedy movie about a teen girl named Cady Heron who goes to a school that is dominated by a [[AlphaBitch popular girl]] named Regina. Cady's CoolLoser friends Janis and Damian persuade her to [[TheInfiltration join]] Regina's GirlPosse for the purpose of spying on Regina. Before long, Cady ends up [[BecomingTheMask identifying with Regina's whole value system]]. There's lots of bitchy backstabbing, lots of [[AnAesop lessons learned]], and lots of [[HilarityEnsues funny situations]] along the way. Overall, it's something of a LighterAndSofter SpiritualSuccessor to the {{black comedy}} ''{{Film/Heathers}}''.
