Mean Girls. We’ve all watched it at one point or another, and it has had a huge influence on the modern films that we enjoy today. The iconic-pink-on-wednesdays movie has had many remakes over the years, including the 2024 movie musical.

This is an issue with many films targeted towards younger audiences today, as outdated slang and embarrassing takes on the ‘i’m not like other girls’ trope is getting old.
