Intro for April 30, 2014
Today is the 10th anniversary of Mean Girls.
“The weird thing about hanging out with Regina is that I could hate her but I still wanted her to like me.”
Replace “Regina” with “Gwyneth”. Or “Julia”. Is it the same?
So, are you wearing pink today? I’m wearing pink on The Social today.
In 10 years, Tina Fey has become a powerhouse. Everybody rose. One fell. That she squandered all that promise isn’t the biggest tragedy. To me, the biggest tragedy is that of all the things I remember about Mean Girls, I don’t remember the promise. I don’t remember Lindsay Lohan as a good actor. Not even Mean Girls was enough of a foundation to carry her through her sh-t, her ongoing, interminable sh-t. Lohan will be 28 in July. That’s not… young anymore, especially not in an industry that ages you out so quickly.
