Mean Girls (2004)
Director: Mark Waters
Starring: Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried
Box Office: $129m
Plot: Written by Tina Fey, this immensely quotable teen comedy sees a girl who has been home tutored in Africa thrown back into a US high school and on a collision course with bitchy clique, The Plastics. Joining the group in order to destroy them from within, she slowly starts to act more like them and unleashes her inner bitch. Basically, it’s Heathers for the noughties, but with fewer explosions.

Mean Girls 2 (2011)
Director: Malanie Mayron
Starring: Meaghan Jette Martin, Jennifer Stone, Diego Boneta
Plot: The same high school seven years later, and The Plastics still exist although the members are, as you may have guessed, different. Another newcomer resolves to take them down, this time by forming a rival clique known as The Anti-Plastics and waging a war of pranks. Tim Meadows reprises his role as the exasperated Principal Ron Duvall. Tina Fey reprises nothing.
