Mean Girls 2 is a lackluster, faintly entertaining, harebrained farce that tactlessly showcases the shallowness that plagues today’s youth. This dismal calamity highlights the drama that modern society obsesses over. This dim witted catastrophe features Meaghan Martin, Maiara Martin, Jennifer Stone, Diego Gonzales Boneta, Nicole Gale Anderson, and Claire Holt. With a return by Tim Meadows (The Ladies Man)
A well traveled teen arrives at in a small town where she is paid to befriend an outcast against a this generation version of the Plastics.
The film is a travesty that occurs in a small town. The premise of it is identical to the original. It revolves around a series of pranks between a newcomer and a trio of mean girls in a meaningless battle for popularity within a high school. The film utilizes all of the technological addictions that today‘s youth surrender to in order to highlight and humiliate one another. Some of these pranks are mildly amusing but most of them are insensitively deplorable.
In spite of its shortcomings, the film has a good theme. Deeply intertwined within muddled subterfuge of this pestilence is a touching message about the value of true friendship and following one‘s dreams. In addition, the best aspect of this unmitigated disaster is that it is a great visual example that showcases an excellent message against one of today’s huge issues that plague today’s youth, bullying. It aptly displays a insightful statement about standing up for one’s self and fighting back against bullying.
Mean Girls 2 is a an extremely disappointing, overly superficial film. I don’t know if there’s any reason to sit through this film. It has extremely brief flashes of enjoyment but they are miniscule given the length of the film. However, it will aptly entertain its target audience. Most teenagers and pre teens will find some level of entertainment within it but that only testifies to how easily they are entertained. The message within the movie will be overlooked as many teens will not appreciate it. Stay away from this movie and if you can keep your teens away from it as well.
