In the movie Mean Girls, Lindsay Lohan plays the new girl in school who gets caught up with the “popular girls” and their mean and conniving ways.
“The Fab Four”
Amanda, Julia, Terri and Jessica, are best friends and are considered the “popular girls.” They share secrets and clothes, and set the trends for the rest of the school. But are they also mean?
The Other Girls
Rayanne, Crystal, Laura and Chantelle go to high school with the “Fab Four,” and say they’re not so fab at all because they gossip, are mean, and think they are better than everyone else.
