Storyline

Five high school cheerleaders, including the daughter of the school principal, run amok -- and teachers, parents and administrators allow them to get away with a wide range of scandalous behavior. Know as the "fab five," the girls disregard school rules, drink alcohol and post suggestive pictures on the Internet. But when the new cheerleading coach attempts to discipline them, her superiors ask her to resign. The real version of the events took place in McKinney, Texas, a Dallas suburb, and received national media attention in 2006. Written by memc@amazon.com

Mean Girls: The Drama
28 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a sad reminder that sometimes if parents give there kids too much power and freedom, most of the time they'll tend to abuse it to there level. It is based on real events with the exceptions the names of the real people have been changed. It about some mean cheerleaders who had there school and parents wrapped around there fingers, and pretty much gotta away with anything. But everything changes when Emma Carr(Jenna Dewan, Step Up) a new cheer leading coach comes in, and refuses to be fooled by them, and not sink to there level. The girls try to find a way to get rid of her. And that is all i'm gonna say. It was a great T.V. movie, at times is not easy to watch, but it is good non the less. A lot viewers said they hated the girls, we'll that was the idea, you where supposed to hate them, they didn't come across likable, they where the villains of the movie, I hated them while I was watching it, But my hats off to the females who played them, they really went with it, and held nothing back. They really gave good performances, especially Ashley Benson, who played Brooke the leader of the group, she really gave a good performance as a bad girl, I really hope she has a long career ahead of her. Jenna Dewan and Tatum O'Neal who plays the vice principal and mother to one of the girls are also great.
