Mean Girls is one of my all time favorite movies in which came out my senior year in high school. Mean Girls the movie focuses on a female transfer student named Cady who moved to civilization from a small tribe in Africa. Her first friends are two outcasts, who explain to her the school's social scene. There are a group of three girls who are the most popular, mean and rule the school who are called the plastics. The three girls end up befriending Cady to transform her and make her somewhat like their doll.
"Cold, shiny, hard, PLASTIC," said by Janice referring to a group of girls in the movie Mean Girls. Mean Girls is about an innocent, home-schooled girl, Cady who moves from Africa to the United States. Cady thinks she knows all about survival of the fittest. But the law of the jungle takes on a whole new meaning when she enters public high school and encounters psychological warfare and unwritten social rules that teen girls deal with today. Cady goes from a great friend of two "outcasts", Janice and Damien to a superficial friend of the "plastics", a group of girls that talks about everyone behind their back and thinks everyone loves them.
As mentioned in Gendered Lives: Communication, Gender and Culture by Julia T. Wood, “as females pass through puberty and become more aware of themselves as gendered and sexed beings, many young women shy away from being geeky or seeming overly smart” (Wood, 169). As Cady becomes influenced by her new friend group called the Plastics, the more she feels she cannot act smart around the men she finds attractive. For example, in one scene of the movie, Cady pretends to be totally lost during a class lecture. She asks the boy she likes for help and pretends to act like she has no idea how to do the math equations. After Ms. Norbury realizes that Cady is dumbing herself down to impress a boy she explains to Cady, “I know that having a boyfriend may seem like the most important thing in the world.
The movie 'Mean Girls' is about a girl Cady who was homeschooled until the age of 16. Then she entered high school and met plastics (a group of mean teenage girls). She started becoming like them to fit in and gain acceptance by others. Then she realized her mistake and that people don’t like her so she apologized to people she has hurt. In this paper, I will demonstrate how tactical impression management, situated identity, and peers as the agent of socialization apply to various scenes in the movie.
In this story there was a girl name Jenny, she was searching to the whole internet to get ready for her first middle school life, in Joyce Middle School. After all those researches Jenny feels totally prepared for her middle school, Jenny was so excited to go there specially when specially when she gets to see her best friend Addie and hangout with her. It was finally the day Jenny was expecting; Jenny was totally obsessed about what to wear she was so excited she wearied her old dinosaur tea shirt instead of her 5 grade clothes. Jenny finally got to the school and saw big kids and pretty girls all over; Jenny was feeling like an idiot in the tea shirt. Jenny when to the locker and saw Addie Jenny couldn’t believe how Addie changed, she didn’t even hi to her, instead Jenny made the shot, but Addie just said a simple hi and turned back to her other friends, she sure was wearing cute clothes.
Mean girls The movie main character is Cady Heron who is a homeschooled girl. Her and her family lived in Africa for 15 years. They return back to the states and place Cady into a public school for the first time. Cady meets her classmates and finds a few good friends the introduce her to a group of girls called the Plastics. She ends up joining the plastics with the motive of bring them down because her new friend don’t like them very much and thought it would be funny.
While she is a teen who is superior, her life style isn’t just social interest. The reason why I would say she is social interest because at the beginning we see that she is trying to talk to more people beyond her clique or social order. She also cares about others feelings and doesn’t see the “dorks” as just dorks. For an example, when Heather D tells Veronica that an unpopular girl tried to kill herself, “so she can copy the cool kids”; in shock and anger Veronica slaps Heather D. Another reason why Heather
Obviously, these characters changed for the greater good and understood what they did that might have been wrong. However, these two characters' experiences were also different. One of the differences between these characters’ experiences are that they learned their lessons in different ways. Aunt Polly gradually learned that punishing Tom was bad; she did not learn it right away. Aunt Polly started to become mellow after a series of events, unlike Constancia.
Instead of being admired for class participation, as in earlier years she was laughed at and labeled as “teacher’s pet.” She said the rules were simple “shun or be shunned—if you weren’t willing to go along with the crowd, you would become the reject.” Sixth grade Jodee enrolled at a private academy and the first few months were without incident. Jodee reveled in having friends and tried to do everything right to stay in their good standing. The trouble started when she called her mother to leave a party early. Jodee begged her mother not tell what was going on with the twelve year olds—but they were all caught in the act. Monday morning at school she found her favorite suede shoes floating in a toilet bowl of urine with a note attached—“Bitch, this is just the beginning.” She was cruelly treated, spit at, beaten, and shunned on a daily basis.

Though life happily drifts by for her everything changes when she meets her new interesting next door neighbor Mari.
