Honestly, I'm not sure how I survived high school without MEAN GIRLS. Released in 2004, this film came out years after my graduation, so all of its insights into cliques and popularity were useless to me. Tina Fey, I could have really used your help in the mid '90s.

Fey based the script on her own adolescent experiences as well as material from the non-fiction book "Queen Bees and Wannabees," resulting in a portrayal of teen politics so accurate, it should be required viewing in every school district across America. Because no matter where you grow up, you have to deal with the Plastics (even if you are one), not to mention unrequited crushes, clueless parents and dorky teachers who actually want to help you, even when it looks like social suicide.

Given the stellar cast and hilarious script, it's easy to see why MEAN GIRLS so quickly earned a permanent place in our cultural lexicon, not to mention my every day vocabulary. From the elegantly simple, "Boo, you whore," to Damian's trademark, "YOU GO, GLEN COCO!" the script is packed with great lines, which is why we've created the first ever quote-along version of the movie! As you recite your favorite lines, you can try to make fetch happen with Gretchen and experience ESPN with Karen while playing along with props themed to the film.

It's a screening guaranteed to be even better than a cake of rainbows and smiles, so whether you're a Plastic, a Mathlete or a Badass M.C., prepare yourself for a totally grool time. (Sarah Pitre)

    It’s that robotic mechanical sound of the VCR inhaling the tape to output a burning hiss through the theater that gets me. It’s a goofy, tactless romance, but I’m okay with that.
