* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Back when Janis and Regina were friends, Janis was the [[AlphaBitch queen bee]] and Regina was the innocent friend (like Cady) who was [[FromNobodyToNightmare slowly evolving]].

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Back A fairly popular belief with fans is that back when Janis and Regina were friends, Janis was the [[AlphaBitch queen bee]] and Regina was the innocent friend (like Cady) who was [[FromNobodyToNightmare slowly evolving]].



* HollywoodPudgy: Regina's weight gain is almost entirely informed. Wardrobe allegedly stuffed Rachel McAdams' sweatpants and gave her an oversized hoodie to give her the appearance of having gained weight...but her upper half is swimming in the hoodie, and the pants only appear to be a trifle snug.

** And with PeripheryDemographic: This movie is popular with a lot of guys, particularly those who had a thing for Lohan back in the day and are nostalgic for her pre-trainwreck career or are fans of [=McAdams=], Seyfried or Chabert curious about their early careers. Also heavily related to TestosteroneBrigade listed below.

** Creator/BellaThorne, when promoting ''Film/TheDuff'' on TheBBC's Radio 1, invoked this when trying to persuade the DJ's producer (a man) to see ''Mean Girls''[[note]]that's right, she was promoting a different movie - luckily Paramount and CBS Films, which made ''The DUFF'', are part of the same corporate family[[/note]], pointing out its brilliance and adding "Plus it's [[Creator/LindsayLohan got]] [[Creator/RachelMcAdams four]] [[Creator/LaceyChabert hot]] [[Creator/AmandaSeyfried girls]]."

** Let's see... Creator/RachelMcAdams (Regina) and Creator/AmandaSeyfried are both still very successful actresses, and Creator/LindsayLohan (Cady) is still famous (or maybe just infamous) due to her presence in the tabloids. As for Creator/LaceyChabert... "And none for Gretchen Wieners, bye!"

* DesignatedHero: Janis. She is just as manipulative as Regina, taunts her by revealing her manipulations in front of the entire school, [[MoralDissonance and gets cheered for it]]. This, combined with her HollywoodHomely appearance, has only fueled some fans' theories that Janis is herself a [[FallenPrincess former]] AlphaBitch.

* FridgeBrilliance: Regina's line referring to Gretchen's nomination for Spring Fling Queen, saying that "She's not even pretty." In the original script, Gretchen was intended to be average at best, ugly at worst - mostly desirable because of her expensive clothes and lavish lifestyle. When the obviously pretty Lacey Chabert was cast for the role, this line was left in, and rather than just a statement, it becomes an insight into Regina's character. She truly believes that she is the queen bee because she deserves it, because she is superior to Karen and Gretchen. YMMV on which girl is most attractive, but fans can all agree that each of them is gorgeous, and only Regina's inflated ego could have resulted in such a surprise at Gretchen's nomination.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[http://bust.com/mean-girls-10th-anniversary-reunion-cast-spills-secrets.html In an article for "Entertainment Weekly"]], the actresses were asked about what they imagined their characters as and TinaFey regretted not writing a sequel.
---> ''Karen:'' Manage or own a store that sells really cool dog attire, like Swarovski dog collars and Halloween costumes for animals.
---> ''Cady:'' In Africa with [[OprahWinfrey Oprah]] working at children’s schools with family, teaching girls to be nice.
---> ''Gretchen:'' Running the Toaster Strudel Empire. She has curly hair and worked everything out with Jason.
---> ''Regina:'' She’s a [[TheRealHousewives Real Housewife]] and has found all her other Reginas.

** Inverted with the math competition. If you do the math on the final math problem (the limit as x goes to 0 of ln (1-x) sin x/1-(cos x)^2), the answer does in fact turn out to be -1, Kraft's "incorrect" answer. The function doesn't exist ''at'' 0, but the function still ''approaches'' -1 as x approaches 0.
