⭐ Rating 7/10

🎬 Seats (S18) 10/10 (dead centre back row and comfy as!)

🍿 Popcorn with M&M Toppings (5/10) sweet popcorn was great. M&Ms were great, but think they’d be a better topping on salted.

20 years after the original Mean Girls, what better way to celebrate than with a remake but with music! An easy watch with a modern-day twist whilst still incorporating all of the must-haves from the original. Gretchin is still trying to make Fetch happen but there was a lacking in the Queen B herself Regina George. Characters felt overplayed that made the 2004 hit however I would still rate this as a MUST SEE to make your own opinion. To me, it’s more of a film adaption of the stage show than a remake of the original which means you find a new kind of love for Mean Girls and the characters in it. Great to see some familiar faces in the cast still and new energy from characters like Janis Ian.
