Desperate Plastics? Lindsay Lohan Talks About Her Idea for ‘Mean Girls’ Sequel

This year is the tenth anniversary for the film, Mean Girls. With so many other films getting sequels done, I say let’s have one for this film, and Lindsay Lohan feels the same way.

After ten long years, I still quote the movie, sometimes on a daily basis. I know others do, too. I still see shirts with quotes from the movie in stores. On Wednesdays, I sometimes even wear pink just because “On Wednesdays we wear pink.”

So you can see why myself and many others would be thrilled to hear of a sequel to Mean Girls. Of course, with a sequel there would be a lot of expectations from fans of the original. I mean, have you seen Mean Girls 2? Neither have I. I didn’t even know it existed for the longest time.

After so after so many years, Cady, Gretchen, Regina, Karen, and the whole gang can’t just go right back to high school.

That is why Lohan told Time Out, “I was with Tina Fey the other day and I said we should do another Mean Girls, like an older version where they are all housewives and they’re all cheating.”

Although I am not quite sure about this premise, with Tina Fey as the writer I have no doubt that it wouldn’t be funny. I am sure she would have something up her sleeve for us to sit back and enjoy.

I would love to see the cast reunite to make this movie, so we can see where all our favorite mean girls are now. Maybe even see a little Glen Coco. (You go, Glen Coco!)

I see them falling back into their old ways and as suburbanites, having block parties, but only inviting certain people to sit with them because we all know that in movies the suburbs, like high school, are liable to having cliques as well. Will Gretchen continue to try to make fetch happen? Do they still wear pink on Wednesdays? But all will be resolved in the end. They will stop judging their neighbors and stop cheating or whatever trouble has been going on to disrupt the quiet suburb, maybe even a little trust fall. They will all be happy together once again.

I am getting excited just thinking about it and also an urge to go watch Mean Girls. Now the sequel probably won’t happen exactly like I say, but whatever Tina Fey can imagine, I’m sure it will be good. It will never be an academy award winner; I just want it to be entertaining and fun to watch.

Even if it does sound just like a grown up version of the original, I would probably still see it because it holds some sentimental value in my heart, and I have an undying love for Tina Fey. That is why I am hoping that this happens, even if I am the only one in the theater to watch it (even though I know I wouldn’t be alone.)
