MPAA Rating: PG-13

Okay for kids?

EW says…

Min. Age 10-12 Yrs Old

Cady learns a valuable lesson and sends a positive message: be yourself. Some of the outfits are a little risqué, and there's a party scene with underage drinking, but all in all it's a movie mothers and daughters can enjoy together.—L.S. A.W.

It's a sweet-tart comedy about female bitchiness in the high school jungle. And as written by SNL jungle queen Tina Fey, it's also a harbinger of hope for feminist comedies with grit. Lindsay Lohan and Fey star.
