Cady Heron’s first year at a new school requires her to draw on her wiliest survival skills as she navigates a treacherous terrain; a habitat that’s home to apex predators, The Plastics. Partially based on Rosalin Wisemand’s 2002 book Queen Bees and Wannabes, as well as her own high school experiences, Tina Fey’s whip-smart screenplay is both sardonic and sympathetic. She, and director Mark Waters, preserve many of the genre tropes audiences love, while offering a very funny, and affecting, fresh take on the teen movie.
