This TV movie hoped to ride the wave of the original Mean Girls – the hilarious hit featuring a then-promising Lindsay Lohan and Tina Fey and was a teen phenomenon when first released in 2004. However, the producers of this follow-up should have realised that connecting this flick with the original was a risky move, as expectations were high. The story follows a 17-year-old tomboy Jo as she starts at a new school and encounters popular and snobbish clique ‘The Plastics’, who mess with her new friend, tortured artist Abby. Sounds a lot like the original. It’s just a shame the acting and humour isn’t on par – at all.
