The Plastics are back. The reboot of Mean Girls has got a few good callbacks to the original, but mostly this 2024 version doesn’t impress.

You need to know this remake is a musical. The songs are pretty continual, and so much of the crucial story was truncated in favor of making the movie fit the time of 2+ hours. Lots and lots of songs…and not so much with the character beats. It suffers from that.

Grool…

I’m a big fan who gave the 2004 Mean Girls an A+ during a COVID rewatch. The original does everything it set out to do. This one? Eh. I feel badly that the wonderful Tina Fey (who she looks exactly the same) did this…and not sure why. It didn’t update anything. It’s not that funny, except that there are some fun callbacks sprinkled around. Some are really quick, and some are obvious.

I don’t think this film needed to be updated: there are some references to social media, but it doesn’t seem to be important.

She doesn’t even go here!

It’s not a bad movie, but feels unnecessary when the original is A+ level and holds up just fine. The important interpersonal scenes are almost all cut in favor of songs. This is really just for Mean Girl fans, because it’s like the remade classic Overboard: forgettable.

Nice cameo at the end, however. I’d suggest seeing Mean Girls 2024 with friends for a fun double-feature party, and just enjoying what we have here because some of the songs are absolute bangers. Wear pink if it’s Wednesday, or you can wear sweats on Friday. Ponytails are okay, but only once a week!

Single best investment

By and far best investment Ive made. I used to drive my husband nuts because Id be a fidgeting mess the last half hour of the movie trying not to miss important parts. Now I just turn this app on and *bam* I can actually focus on the movie the whole time. Even puts alerts to my watch so even better. Also I can guarentee all the 5 reviews arent fake as one person accused – its just that so many of us movie-goers had the same problem and this fixed it. Yes, it is paid but jeeze its expensive to keep watching movies and updating an app for every movie. And if you read more about the creator he mentions he has several people contributing – so yeah its paid but omg worth every cent. 10/10

Developers note: the RunPee app is now, and always will be, 100% free. Donations are optional.

About The Peetimes: I have 3 Peetimes. All are okay, but the middle one is best. This was a surprisingly difficult movie to get Peetimes for (And I’m a Mean Girls fan), because of the songs. Do people want to see the song numbers or follow the plot? I had to make some judgment calls. It would have been nice to have the plot not be so truncated by the songs.

There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits o f Mean Girls.

  1. Thanks so much for putting in Genre and Plot, Jill. Some of the RunPee reviews don’t do that and I left to go to IMDB to figure out a context for the review.
