“On Wednesdays we wear pink.”

Can not believe that it is 10 years to the day that Mean Girls was released on April 30, 2004! And not only was it first released today ten years ago, the best part is that the Anniversary comes up on a Wednesday! Well all know what happens on Wednesdays! 

so make sure you are following the plastic fashion rules today or else...

Yea I know 

Right, but I can not help it that this movie was so popular! 

haha okay, okay on a much more serious note. Even though I absolutely love all these quotable moments.

Thinking about this anniversary makes me feel a little but nostalgic. I mean in 2004 I was a freshman in high school.  Now I am a college graduate, looking for a job in the real world. It's amazing how much can change in 10 years.

And what's so cool about this movie is that it is still relevant today, even 10 years later. Re watching it this morning with my mom, all of the jokes that were funny back then are still just as funny today! This movie  and some people may disagree with me saying this but, is as timeless as Dirty Dancing. People years later are still quoting "Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner!"  Its true for this movie as well. People are going to be quoting "She doesn't even go here!" Even after we are all good and dead. Well I sure hope they a

Here are a few more of my favorite quotable moments. 

Now some cool facts about the actors/movie that you didn't know! 

1. Lindsay Lohan was originally going to play Regina but was worried that the public would associate her with being a “bitch,” so she made Lorne Michaels switch her part. The producers originally cast Amanda Seyfried as Cady, but Michaels felt she would be a better Karen. (Maybe because her breasts can always tell when it’s raining?) As Chabert was born to play Gretchen Wieners, she always had that role.

2. Regina George’s character was partly inspired by Alec Baldwin from Glengarry Glen Ross. 

3. Amy Poehler is only seven years older than Rachel McAdams, who plays her daughter in the film. McAdams was eight years older than Lindsay Lohan, who was the only Plastic still young enough to be playing a high schooler by the time the film was released.

4.  The movie was inspired by Queen Bees and Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman, a non-fiction guide for parents to “[help] your daughter survive cliques, gossip, boyfriends and other realities of adolescence.”

5. The Barnes and Noble in Evanston is located right in the middle of Evanston. So, if Gretchen got diarrhea in it, she would be happy to run into almost everyone she knows afterward.

6.  In the scene when Cady asks for the “lavatory pass,” you can see the periodic table on the board behind them. On it, the table lists “silicone” as one of the elements. This is not an actual element, although “silicon” is. 

7. The film initially earned an R rating from the MPAA for language and sexual content. To get a PG-13, numerous plot elements and verbal exchanges had to be toned down or taken out.

8. For the Kevin Gnapoor’s rapping scene, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler taught actor Rajiv Surendra how to rap. They recreated it for the internet, proving that Mean Girls truly is the gift that keeps on giving.

9. Mr. Duvall’s carpal tunnel was written into the script, because Tim Meadows had really broken his hand before shooting, and needed to wear a cast.

10. The tacky plastic skirts in the Christmas talent show were purposely made of plastic…to “represent the Plastics!”

Now what are some of your favorite lines/ quotes from the movie?
