Mean Girls Identity


High school's hard enough when you haven't spent the past twelve years being home-schooled and hanging out with elephants after class. Socially, Cady's a blank slate when she enrolls at North Shore High School, and she soon finds that it's a minefield of cliques.

It's up to Cady to figure out who she is and where she belongsā€¦and that's basically the plot of Mean Girls.

Questions About Identity

  1. At what point do you think Cady becomes fully Plastic? How can you tell?
  2. When Cady, Janis, and Damian carry out their three-part plan against Regina, aren't they being just as evil as she is?
  3. What's going on with Gretchen joining the cool Asians at the end of the movie? Is that surprising? Strange?
  4. Why is Cady drawn to Regina and the Plastics? Is it just the fame, or is there more to it?

Chew on This

The message of Mean Girls is that if you want to be happy, be yourself.

Cady's evolution shows that the North Shore jungle isn't that different from the African jungle.
