Mean Girls

Question: What was the name of the lotion that Cady gave to Regina? Also, which cosmetic brands were used in the movie?

Question: Why did the coach act so paranoid about safe sex if he was actually sleeping with a student?

Answer: Precisely because he was sleeping with a student. Getting her pregnant would bring their affair out into the open and create a scandal for the whole nation to know what he was up to. Therefore safe sex was really important to him.

Question: After Cady sends a candy cane note to herself, pretending that it came from Regina, Gretchen says that Regina does not even like Cady very much. So why is Regina still allowing Cady to associate with The Plastics? As the "queen bee", she could probably decide to ban Cady from the group.

Answer: Regina enjoys manipulating people, and she views Cady as a relatively easy person to manipulate, finding her more useful/amusing to keep in their circle. It's a running theme of the film that the friendships between all of the Plastics is very tenuous, because of the catty, manipulative nature of the girls.

Question: Is Cady taking two math classes? She is in the same classroom twice. Once with Damian and Janice, the next in 8th period with Aaron Samuels.

Answer: The first time she goes in with Damian and Janice is their homeroom and when she is with Aaron it is the actual class.

Question: Does it ever specify whether it is the first day of school for everybody or just for Cady?

Answer: Mr. Duvall comes to ask Ms. Norbury how her summer went which means it is the first day back. Cady is lost simply because she is new to the school in general, while everyone else is already familiar with it.

Question: When Janis is explaining the Cliques to Cady, she mentions the "Preps". Aren't the Plastics preps?

Answer: Not necessarily. "Preps" usually consist of a huge group of both boys and girls (at least in my high school expierence!). The plastics were just three really mean girls that thought they were above all other cliques.

Question: Wasn't it a big risk for Cady to send the candy cane card to herself and pretend it was from Regina? She could have easily been caught if Gretchen had mentioned it to Regina.

Answer: It's the type of thing that Cady would do to discredit Regina. Yes it was risky, but Cady had everything to gain from it.

A Demon

Question: When the Plastics and Aaron are walking through the hall, I can't tell if Cady really does fall into the trashcan, or if it's in her imagination. Is this answered anywhere?

Answer: We can assume that it really did happen, because in the scenes of her imagination, it then jumps back to show what really happened, and in this case it doesn't.

Christina

Question: What is the name of the song they put on the radio in Regina's bedroom when they ask Cady who sings the song?

Answer: "Overdrive," by Katy Rose and Kim Bullard.

Question: This may be ignorant but what exactly does half-a-virgin mean?

Answer: Many girls will consider themselves half virgins if they have performed/recieved oral sex but not traditional sex. Or that they had penetration but not orgasm. Some girls also consider themselves half-virgins if it has been an extremely LONG time since they have had sex (meaning that they might as well be virgins again).

Question: What is the scary film that Damian and Janis are watching at Halloween?

Question: Why didn't Gretchen and Karen stay friends? (at the end of the movie it shows Gretchen sitting with a different group of friends) I thought Regina was the only one they didn't really like.

Answer: Gretchen had simply found a new group of friends with the Vietnamese girls; just because she and Karen no longer sat together in the cafeteria didn't mean they were no longer friends at all. As Cady said in her closing narration, the "Plastics" disbanded at the end of the school year because they had all found new things to belong to: Regina was now a star player on the school's lacrosse team, Cady stayed with the "Mathletes", Karen started giving the school weather report, and Gretchen, as mentioned before, hung out with the Vietnamese girls. The four remained on friendly terms, though.

Question: Do you know how they filmed Jason getting hit in the face with the radio after Gretchen accidentally kicks it?

Answer: The radio probably was very light and soft and made of rubber. Either that or Gretchen deliberately didn't kick it far enough for it to hit him, but from the angle it was filmed it looked like it did.

Question: When Cady walks into the gym (after the large multi-girl fight scene), she tells the viewer that she knows everyone was just talking about her. How can this be? They only just discovered the book pages in the hallways, and they were so busy fighting each other, they obviously they didn't stop to discuss the fact that Cady was not mentioned on any of the pages. So why would everyone have just been talking about her?

Answer: Girls notice these things easily. The plastics are the most hated girls in the school, so if there's a book saying mean things about everyone, people would assume the plastics are in it. Everyone was running around the room reading all the pages, possibly trying to find what it says about the plastics. Since nobody could find them, they would think the only logical explanation is they wrote the book, just like Mr Duvall, since they're so hated. In the gym, they would've been asking each other if they could find pages about them, and since nobody could, they would be discussing reasons why. And besides, when Cady walked into the gym, everyone was looking at her. That's enough to realise everyone was talking about her, with or without a good reason.

Question: When the four girls are at the mall and they see Jason with the girl by the fountain, Regina asks for Gretchen's phone and calls the mother of the girl with Jason. How on earth could Regina have known the phone number?

Answer: As soon as Regina gets the phone, she dials 411 and they connect her to the girl's mother. It is right before Regina talks to the mother that this is blatantly stated.

Question: The theme at the end of the movie sounds so familiar, but I cant seem to remember where its from. Can anyone refresh me?

Answer: The song is "dancing with myself" by Billy Idol. For the movie, the girl band The Donnas are singing it.

Question: Why does the principal (Mr. Duvall I believe) have a cast on his right hand? I don't recall seeing him fracture or injure it. Was there something I might have missed?

Answer: He has carpal tunnel syndrome. He mentions it when he's talking to Tina Fey after she gets coffee spilled on her and she talks about how she got a divorce.

Question: What are ROTC guys?

Answer: ROTC is the Reserve Officers Training Corps. It's a program for people who would like to join the military when they get out of school. They wear uniforms and do military training exercises after school. While not always the case, most people in the ROTC program tend to hang out mostly with other people in the program.

Question: When Cady gives the kalteen bars to Regina, she says that there's an ingredient that is not legal in the US yet. Right after she says that, Regina suggests some ingredients. Does anyone actually know what the ingredients are, or are they just made up?

Answer: The name Kalteen bars was made up for the film, but the ingredients Regina suggests are real: phentermine and ephedrine I think.

Mistakes

Cady breaks up her Spring Fling tiara that she receives. On stage, she breaks it up into many pieces and throws them out into the crowds; it is clear that the amount we see being thrown into the crowds is a major amount of pieces - almost too much from just one tiara. However then when she leaves the stage, we see her holding approximately half of the tiara still. This would not be possible from the aforementioned amount that Cady has already snapped off and thrown into the crowd.
