Way back in 2004 Tina Fey was just that chick from Weekend Update, Rachel McAdams was a nobody, Amanda Seyfried was clawing her way out of the world of soap operas, and Lindsay Lohan was just a glimmer in some Hollywood drug dealer’s eye. But everything changed when they came together and starred in a clever little movie called Mean Girls that raised the bar for what we expect from teen comedies. It was well-written, well-acted, and damn it, it was funny.
Now, almost seven years later Tina Fey has become a comedy legend, Rachel McAdams is a highly sought after leading lady, Amanda Seyfried is the current “it” girl, and Lindsay Lohan is…well, this is where it gets awkward. But the folks over at Paramount are hoping there’s still enough power in the name for them to capitalize on the success of the first and make a little cash (seven years? Way to strike while the iron’s hot Paramount).
