I thought it would be as good as the original, but instead it was a 5-year-old musical, they kept pushing the message. Awful, waste of my money wouldn’t recommend

I thought they would try to mix it up and add a plot twist or something. It is literally the exact same movie with singing. Some of the best parts from the original were missed

Should have never remade into a musical, forget a burn book, burn this musical. Shrek was a better musical

Loved this movie! Perfect combination of the 2004 movie, the musical, and something totally new. This movie made direct nods to the original, but also created playful new adaptations. The cast and musical numbers were great. Can’t wait to see it again!

Ehh. It had potential but they ruined it with all the signing. The songs were so bad.

this is a very cringe movie. I was cringing the whole time. but there were some sunny stuff. I think this movie is made to monetize the nostalgia of those who saw the first one

Compared to the original mean girls, this was literally a waste of time for all the people employed for this movie, like truly & genuinely butt juice…

Terrible remake, not worth paying full price. wait for it to come out on streaming services. it's a musical

the humor is dead, but I enjoyed the darker take on everything. some fun updates and a few clever things, but I wish the comedy could have delivered.

I was really excited to see this and knew when I came in it would be a musical. That being said the movie really fell flat for me and I was very disappointed.

Probably the worst movie I’ve ever seen. Got up and left 30 mins into the movie. Whoever wrote the songs for this movie should be fired from ever writing another song again. They definitely lied about job experience during the interview and somehow still got the job.

It just came across as a copy of the original with music attached to it from the musical. Nothing original at all which made it feel like I had already seen it, but not in a good way

Not true to either previous adaptation. A stand alone with some musical flops in terms of emotion and syntax alike

A fun delightful time! Such a fun and enjoyable film! It is a musical, but it’s genuinely delightful. Wonderful cast, story progression, and overall themes were a delight! Any fan of the original Mean Girls, needs to see this film.

I have so many things to say about the movie. It was AWESOME. I literally quote mean girls all the time and it's such an iconic movie of it's time. this is unlike other movies. it's not a remake and it not a cheesy showtunea musical. the songs were fantastic, the acting was fantastic, the cast was fantastic. I loved the modern integration and the integration of the original film. there are easter eggs and cameos and it's so great for what it is and how it was combining both theater and film. I actually want to go again in theaters and when it hits streaming I'll be replaying it all the time.

The movie was pretty good, some language but appropriate for teens. A lot of it was musical, definitely wasn’t expecting that. Same story line with new generation cast.

If you like musicals this is a great one. Really highlights the emotions of the characters. Lots of sexual undertones, could use less.. but overall great :)

Remove the musical elements and the 2024 version, directed by newcomers Samantha Jayne and Arturo Perez Jr., resembles an amateurish imitation of the 2004 original. Add in the mostly-awful songs and it becomes an in-your-face assault on the senses.

Everything that made the original picture so sly, funny, and affecting is gone. Musical numbers spell out the obvious, and loudly.
