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.

Girls you'll really love to hate
27 June 2009 | by sashalimuySee all my reviews

Okay, so the girls from the Pretty Committee may be hard to relate with, the acting may be sub par, and the whole thing might not be realistic but I thought that was the entire point of the film. It presents two kinds of realities--the beautiful, smart, and rich that everyone craves to have (Massie Block) and the dull plain one that most people are in (Claire Lyons). It doesn't really have to be taken literally, point is, they still represented the various cliques that really are present in high school-- the popular ones, the almost there but not quite, the weirdos, and the losers. In a way, Clique is just an incredibly high-end and young version of Tina Fey's Mean Girls. It's not something to watch if you're in need of a life-changing film. This one's fun, but it's definitely a no-brainer.
