Mean Girls

rating: ***1/2 out of 5

quick shot: smartly written tina fey comedy.  a cut above your average teenager movie.

what i liked about the movie: the way it treated most kids with some intelligence.  i also liked that the adults weren't totally oblivious either.  smart script all around.

what i didn't like: the movie bogged down a third of the way through, though it picked up in the end.
