Mean Girls (2004)
“Mean Girls” is Taking the Stage on Broadway
In the race for Best Musical, all eyes will be on “The Band’s Visit.” This intimate and affecting musical from composer David Yazbek, starring Katrina Lenk and Tony Shalhoub, scored rapturous reviews in the fall. But this small scale show faces giants. Disney’s adaptation of their mega-hit “Frozen” opens later this month and Tina Fey has enlisted Tony winner Casey Nicholaw to direct her musical version of “Mean Girls.” Both are sure to be crowd-pleasers. Other competition includes the endearing and upbeat “SpongeBob SquarePants,” a celebration of legendary director Hal Prince in “Prince of Broadway,
Youth & Consequences is billed as a “woke” version of Mean Girls. It is described as a series that boldly tackles hot-button issues like feminism, gender identity and the seemingly life-or-death stakes of adolescence in the Digital Age. It follows Farrah Cutney (Anna Akana), the girl everyone wishes they were in school: a master of her domain, queen of “spin” and the resident “fixer” — at the center of a rumor storm that she can no longer control.
Aside from Youth & Consequences, Waz-jackson is currently scoring The CW’s Life Sentence starring Lucy Hale. They also have two documentary films in post-production, Cancer Rebellion produced by Roger Daltrey of The
Some people are born with a silver spoon, while others go straight for the steak knives. The latter could be said of Lily (Anya Taylor-Joy) and Amanda (Olivia Cooke), childhood best friends from posh Connecticut families whose days of horseback riding are far behind them.
Atwood’s cause, the Canadian Women’s Foundation, funds programs in 1,500 communities for women and girls. Fey, whose Broadway musical “Mean Girls” opens this Monday, will discuss Reading Is Fundamental, America’s largest non-profit children’s literacy organization. The Malala Fund, founded by Nobel Prize recipient Malala Yousafzai to send girls to school, will be endorsed by Blunt, while Keys will herald Keep a Child Alive, the foundation she co-founded
In honor of both awards season and Bachelor season coming to a close, Variety sat down with Luyendyk for a game of “The Bachelor” or best picture, where he had to decide where a memorable quote was from. Turns out the Bachelor may not be the biggest movie buff, as
Directed by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (who played Sam, Lindsay Weir’s nerdy little brother in Judd Apatow’s small-but-perfectly-formed TV series Freaks and Geeks), this surprisingly zingy, throwback studio comedy is witty and observant on the dynamics between couples. Rachel McAdams and Jason Bateman are Annie and Max, a competitive, board games-obsessed couple who are struggling to conceive. It’s a blow to Max’s ego when his sexy, wealthy older brother Brooks (Kyle Chandler) zips into town in a flashy red corvette to attend their weekly game night and even worse when he decides to throw his own murder mystery party in an act of smug one-upmanship. (“Sibling rivalry can be very powerful,” deadpans the couple’s fertility doctor.)
At the party, the teammates are
Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams star in this action-comedy as Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets a little wild as Max’s larger-than-life brother organises a murder mystery party… So when he gets kidnapped it’s all part of the game, right? As the six competitors set out to solve the case and win, they begin to realise this ‘game’ may not be what it seems. With no rules and no idea who all the players are,
A couple of days on from seeing Game Night, it's still making me laugh. It's been a long time since we've seen something this consistently funny come out of a Hollywood studio, but for once, it's terrific to see a comedy that doesn't pile all of its jokes in the trailer and doesn't get bogged down in meanness. For those of us who still shudder at the memory of Office Christmas Party, Jason Bateman most definitely redeems himself here.
The film opens with his character Max meeting Annie (Rachel McAdams) at a pub quiz, where they match wits over Tinky Winky from Teletubbies. It's love at first sight, and their matching competitive streak makes them formidable hosts of a regular game night for their friends. Regrettably, Max's sibling rivalry with

“I was coming back from Target. I was just getting suction cups for our Christmas wreaths and I’m now pulled over in the middle of, I don’t really know where,” she says with a laugh, apologizing for being 10 minutes late for our call. Halfway through our interview she has to placate a curious Martins employee who wants her to move on. She gives him a little wave and tells him sorry, that she’ll be gone soon. So Canadian.
