    Mean Girls Movie Review

    Mean+Girls+Movie+Review

    The new Mean Girls movie starring Renée Rapp is a film adaptation of the musical. There are new actors, and some scenes differ from the original version. Mean Girls premiered in New York City on January 8, 2024, and was released in the theaters by Paramount Pictures on January 12, 2024.

    The new Mean Girls movie is influenced by the original movie. There are a lot of new songs that have become super popular on social media. One of the biggest songs on the internet is “World Burn,” performed by Rapp, who plays Regina George in the musical. I liked the soundtrack because it was very catchy and I felt like I wanted to sing with the actors.

    The original Mean Girls was made in 2004 and was a big hit. People were excited that they were making a new movie because they loved the original so much. It gets mixed reviews because some say the new Mean Girls will never compare to the original, and other musical fans say it exceeded their expectations. In my opinion the original movie was better, because I don’t enjoy musicals very much.

    The new movie had a lot of differences from the original. For example, a key difference is that the story comes from the perspectives of Janis and Damian. Because it comes from a different point of view, it gives you a new perspective on the story. Also, the different point of view makes it so that you get distracted from the original storyline. People are also saying that without songs, the movie would be better. In my opinion, the songs make it so that you don’t focus on the moral as much as all of the emotion.

    I would recommend this movie to people who like musicals. There is a lot of emotion in it, and you feel like you are inside the musical singing with them. I feel like, overall, it was a good movie and really fun to watch.
