Get lost, “Mean Girls” is entering the 2024 era.

Tina Fey's adaptation of the Broadway musical, originally inspired by the 2004 film “Mean Girls,” presents a new twist on the modern classic, promoting Paramount Pictures, the production house behind the film.

Starring Angourie Rice in Lindsay Lohan's role as Cady Heron, the film focuses on Heron, a new student as she navigates the social pitfalls of high school and falls in love with her ex-boyfriend Regina George (Reneé Rapp), leader of the A-list Plastic clique. .

USA TODAY's film critic Brian Truitt gave the new musical ★★½ four stars, saying the film “doesn't really replicate the stage show as much as it's a rehash of Lindsay Lohan's 2004 TikTok-themed teen comedy. it was fine the first time, thanks – with a bunch of show tunes.”

“It's not a bad thing, really, but mostly it seems like an unnecessary thing,” says Truitt.
