'Mean Girls' Synopsis

Raised in the African bush country by her zoologist parents, Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) thinks she knows about "survival of the fittest." But the law of the jungle takes on a whole new meaning when the home-schooled 15-year-old enters public high school for the first time and falls prey to the psychological warfare and unwritten social rules that teenage girls face today.

Directed by Mark Waters ("Freaky Friday"), from a screenplay by Emmy winner Tina Fey ("Saturday Night Live"), "Mean Girls" is a fictional comedy based on Rosalind Wiseman's New York Times bestseller, Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends and Other Realities of Adolescence, which Time praised as "a chilling account of the life our girls navigate in their school lunchrooms and hallways."

Illustrating a serious issue facing girls all across the nation, "Mean Girls" is the story of Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan), a cultural blank slate when she first sets foot on the grounds of North Shore High School in a small town outside of Chicago, Illinois. After living in Africa, Cady, now a junior, has no idea how "wild" things can be in civilization until she crosses paths with one of the meanest species of all -- the "Queen Bee," who at this particular high school is the cool and calculating Regina George (Rachel McAdams).

But Cady doesn't just cross paths with this Queen Bee; she really stings her when she falls for Regina's ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett). Now Regina's set to sting back by pretending to still like Aaron so he won't go out with Cady, all the while pretending to be her friend. With no choice but to use the same M.O. to stay in the game, the "Girl World" one-upmanship escalates until the entire school gets dragged into a first-class mean-fest.

Surrounded by jocks, mathletes, flaky teachers and subcultures galore, Cady climbs up -- and slides down -- the harrowing social ladder of junior year, and life in the jungle turns out to be cake compared to high school!
