    Mean Girls

    ★★½

    [So watered down it removes the message it's trying to portray]

    Prefacing this review, the original Mean Girls is one of my favorite movies of all time and I also find the Broadway show entertaining. I think that the edge and abrasive style of the writing allows the story to be one of the most ridiculous yet realistic satires of High School life. Each performance and its respective characters have become iconic and the amount of gut-busting quotable lines are…

    I can't believe that they managed to top the original. Obviously the animation is jaw dropping and had me staring in awe throughout the entire runtime. I love how every character and universe have their own distinct art style that is gorgeous to watch. Despite the massive cast of characters each one has a very distinct and fun personality.
