Mean Girls' 10th Anniversary

Film pundits and fans of the 2004 now-cult comedy Mean Girls are acknowledging today as the 10th anniversary of its theatrical release. Hard to believe it’s been so long since we first saw “The Plastics” clique, led by queen bee Regina George (winningly played by Rachael McAdams), strutting around North Shore High. Not so hard to believe is that the film, produced by Saturday Night Live’s head honcho Lorne Michaels and chock-full of SNL alumni in its cast, has since developed a cult following.

The above select scene features Regina and her minions, Karen, Gretchen, and Cady (played by Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, and Lindsay Lohan, respectively) in the dress shop "1-3-5" as queen bee Regina can't believe she doesn't fit into her size 5 dress, especially since all she's been eating lately are Kalteen bars, thinking they'll help her lose weight. However, they actually make you "gain weight like crazy," a fact revealed to Regina by a beau, later on in the film. The very snooty salesgirl here is played to the T by Jo Chim, who delivers the only two lines she has in the movie in such an uppity tone, she earns her place as one of the film's memorable characters.
