Witty, bitchy, and wonderfully well-observed, this high school movie, which is one of my faves, is apparently also one of singer/songwriter/movie star Mariah Carey’s favourite films. I learned this fascinating fact the other day while thumbing through the many music channels during a session of festive vegging on my couch.
Yes, apparently Mariah’s single from last year – Obsessed – was inspired by the Regina George (Rachel McAdams) character from Mean Girls, and not only begins with a line spoken by Regina in the film, but also includes a version of that unforgettable bus accident scene. You know the one – Regina storms out of school after learning of the plot to destroy her by Cady (Lindsay Lohan) and Janis Ian (Lizzy Caplan), walks into the road and and promptly gets hit by a school bus. Wham!
Which is your favourite bus bash scene, and do you know of any more?
Mean Girls is showing on E4 tonight, 6th January, at 9pm
