“Mean Girls” was released over 10 years ago and it still manages to come back into our lives with their famous quotes. The movie introduced us to Cady Heron, who is a “homeschooled jungle freak” according to popular mean girl, Regina George. After years living in Africa, she moves back to America and has to go to an actual school. Cady somehow ends up getting the attention of “The Plastics,” the clique everyone wants to be part of. Throughout the movie she finds out why her shallow new friends received the name.
Nine years before “Mean Girls” was released, 90s kids watched “Clueless.” Unlike “Mean Girls”, “Clueless” didn’t focus so much on bashing and taking down classmates. It focused on Cher, a rich and social successful girl who meets Tai, her new “project,” and changes her to become as popular as her.
Regina George, the queen bee and the creator of the famous “Burn Book” was most likely our favorite character on “Mean Girls”. At the beginning we witness Regina being so nice to Cady and welcomes her to her popular clique. Through out the movie we find out her true mean colors, she has to be the center of attention and sometimes she’ll have to bring someone down even if they are her friends.
In "Clueless" we meet Cher Horowitz. A spoiled Beverly Hills girl who uses her popularity to help others and she will most likely want something in return. She manages to get two of her teachers together hoping her C+ average turns into an A. When Cher meets the new girl, Tai, she tries to change her and make her part of her popular group of friends. Cher later realizes that the way Tai was before is more important than popularity. She admits that she is clueless about obvious situations like that time she tried to seduce a gay guy.
All of the characters from both movies provided us with unforgettable quotes that we often find ourselves repeating on multiple occasions.
