Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging/Clueless/Mean Girls [DVD]
Teen comedy triple. 'Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging' (2008) is a British coming-of-age comedy based on the best-selling series of novels by Louise Rennison. The film follows quirky 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson (Georgia Groome) who keeps a journal about the ups and downs of being a teenager. Georgia has two main desires in life: to get a gorgeous boyfriend and to throw the greatest 15th birthday party ever. As well as having to deal with her own problematic life, Georgia must also keep her interfering parents (Alan Davies and Karen Taylor) happy. Amy Heckerling's hugely successful high school comedy 'Clueless' (1995) is a modern day version of Jane Austen's 'Emma'. Cher (Alicia Silverstone) is a precocious teenager, acutely aware of her own superior social standing in relation to some of her classmates. She is just as sure of her position of authority at home as well, until her stepbrother arrives to disrupt the status quo. Her poise is somewhat disturbed at school, too, when a new classmate stirs an emotion in her she has never felt before: love! 'Mean Girls' (2004) is a satirical survival-of-the-fittest teen comedy starring Lindsay Lohan as Cady Heron, a pretty 15-year-old who has spent most of her life in the wilds of Africa being home-schooled by her zoologist parents. Her upbringing has taught her a lot about survival in the wilderness and the subtleties of animal behaviour, but nothing she has learned can prepare her for the unspoken social etiquette of a mid-American high school, where jocks, cheerleaders, stoners and cool kids jostle for popularity, and a clique of rich and popular girls known as 'the Plastics' rule the school. This group of alpha females, led by 'professional life-ruiner' Regina George (Rachel McAdams), is initially contemptuous of Cady but then accepts her as a new member. Cady, who in the meantime has become friends with punky misfits Janis and Damian, starts to get close to the 'mean girls', initially out of curiosity - but it isn't long before she's enjoying the buzz of being one of the most popular girls in the school. However, when she inadvertently crosses the line by going on a date with one of Regina's ex-boyfriends, the gorgeous Aaron (Jonathan Bennett), the Plastics go on the warpath, and Cady must pay for her initiation into their mean Plastic world.
