Mean Girls

Unspooled #200.1 August 19, 2020

Paul & Amy are obsessed with 2004’s teenage clique comedy Mean Girls! They approach the film as a work of anthropology, praise Amanda Seyfried’s perfectly dumb performance, and ask how this pre-social media movie became so heavily GIF’d. Plus: Mark Waters talks about how it feels to have directed a modern sleepover classic.
