Massie Block is the leader of a small group of privileged schoolgirls who arrogantly call themselves 'The Pretty Committee'. These so-called pre-teen 'mean girls' (cynical, egotistical, selfish and narcissistic females) and their clique are respected and feared in their middle school as well as their upper class Rhode Island suburban neighborhood. But Massie's life takes an unexpected turn when her parents friends, a lower-middle class family with a self-assured daughter named Claire move into the Block's guest house and Claire threatens to undermine the superficial Massie's position of the clique.

The Clique is by no means a revolutionary movie, in fact when my sister first got the DVD, I immediately avoided it thinking that it would be just like Angus and Thongs, Mean Girls, and Wildchild. A generic, run of the mill film for teenage girls who don't know any better.
Make no mistake, that is exactly what this movie is, however, it does it very well. The characters are extremely easy to identify with, the plot is engaging without being convoluted, and the young actors are extremely talented. I never found myself laughing out loud, but this is definitely a movie which leaves you smiling on the inside.
The film is excellent, and it certainly doesn't try to be what it's not. It sticks to the formula, and pulls it off extremely well. If you're going to see a teenage girl flick, make it this one. -Auskeek
