You Go Glen Coco!

One of my favorite movies is Mean Girls.  It gets funnier every time I watch it and it has definitely become a cult phenomenon.  My students still quote the movie and it’s from 2004!  I found some fun trivia on the film.  Who is your favorite character?  Mine is Gretchen Weiners for sure lol.
Nearly earned an R rating for explicit, risqué gags and jokes which were subsequently cut. 

In the book upon which the movie is based, the most popular girl in a school is given the title “Queen Bee”. In the movie, the character who fits that description is named Regina – “queen” in Latin. 



Amy Poehler who plays Mrs. George is only seven years older than her on screen daughter Rachel McAdams (Regina George).

Amanda Seyfried, who plays Karen in the film, was initially supposed to play Cady, but producer Lorne Michaels thought she would be better as the “dumb girl”. 

Initially, Lindsay Lohan was cast as Regina, but decided to play the “nice girl” so the public wouldn’t base her real personality on Regina’s. Rachel McAdams was chosen to play the “mean girl” because “only nice girls can play mean girls” according to the producer. 

Lacey Chabert was the first and only choice for the role of Gretchen.

In the scene where Christmas candy canes are being distributed in the classroom Damien, dressed in a Santa suit, reads out the name Glenn Cocco, a good friend of Tina Fey

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler coached Rajiv Surendra on how to rap for his on-screen performance in the school’s Winter Talent Show. 

The skirts for the Christmas talent show are made of plastic; the costume designer says they were made of that fabric to “represent the Plastics”. 

Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams play characters who attend the same school and are in the same grade, in spite of the 8 year age difference between the two actresses.
