EP. 200.1 — Mean Girls

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.

 

This is the first episode of our first miniseries of Season 2, Back To School; next week’s film is Stand And Deliver!
